Discover the Power of FlexSyn Joint Support

FlexSyn offers a unique delivery system for its ingredients, providing fast-acting highly effective equine joint support.

Each FlexSyn tab delivers a potent and readily bio available supply of Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCl and Hyaluronic Acid making it ideal for both pre-event and maintenance applications.

One tab of FlexSyn begins working within 12 hours with full effects evident within 24 hours. Effects are cumulative with repeated administration.

Directions: Administer 1 tab once every 4 days, continuing for 3 doses. After 3 doses, administer 1 tab once every 7 days or as needed to maintain effect.

About FlexSyn

FlexSyn Joint Formula Caps offer a simple all natural alternative for systemic joint support. The highly potent FlexSyn formula utilizes a combination of Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid contained in a carrier made of a proprietary blend of plant and fruit butters, cellulose, combined with ingredients to facilitate rapid absorption through the digestive mucosa.

FlexSyn is easily administered as a suppository, in much the same manner as taking the horse’s temperature. Once inserted it dissolves in 15 to 20 minutes, and the active ingredients are quickly and efficiently distributed.

FlexSyn may work so well because it eliminates the impact of the horse’s highly acidic gastric process. This theoretically allows the Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid to be absorbed intact by the digestive mucosa intact. The return blood supply of the large colon, where absorption of the actives takes place, bypasses the liver, eliminating the normal filtering effect or “first pass” seen in oral application. This allows the actives to be quickly absorbed and distributed unimpeded by the liver to provide maximum joint response within hours.

FAQ:

1. Why a suppository? Suppositories have been a widely used but little discussed means in human and veterinary medicine for delivering a variety of ingredients efficiently and easily. The elimination of the undesirable destructive effects of the digestive process and the ease of absorption through the large colon have been shown in studies to allow the actives to quickly enter the bloodstream intact. In addition, the effect of the liver which sequesters and eliminates much of the Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid when fed to the horse in current products, is bypassed by the colon's return blood supply. Risks inherent in IM and IV injections are avoided with no loss of comparable efficacy. The efficiency of suppository even compared to injection is quite favorable. These features make suppository delivery ideal for these joint supplement ingredients.

2. How quickly does it work? While we have done no specific absorption studies on FlexSyn, anecdotal reports indicate that many users see visible evidence of benefit of supplementation like reduction in joint effusion, improved range of motion and general improved performance within 18 to 24 hours of first administration. The reported speed of action and improved performance suggests it is a preferred choice for pre event joint and comfort support.

3. How long do the effects of FlexSyn last? While we have no actual blood level studies, users report that they see benefits of a single supplementation persist for 4 to 5 days.

4. Is there a loading period for FlexSyn? While a singles dose seems to provide noticeable benefit for 4 or 5 days, users tell us that administering a single dose 4 days apart for 2 to 3 administrations provides a baseline. Users then give 1 dose every 7 to 10 days, with added doses used as a pre performance boost. In high performing situations, a daily dose for 4 consecutive days is also reported to provide outstanding results, with the maintenance follow up of 1 dose per week offering effective maintenance.

5. How do I store FlexSyn? We recommend that Flexsyn be stored at room temperature, with care taken to refrigerate if there is a chance of seeing temperatures over 80 degrees. Because a horse’s body temp is 100 degrees Flexsyn is designed to begin softening and dissolving at 90 degrees and become absorbable as it warms in the horse’s digestive tract.

6. My FlexSyn was in 90 degree temps and is a little soft to my touch. What do I do? No worries! Simply pop the Flexsyn packages into a refrigerator for an hour or two and it will reform. Heat will not damage the actives.

7. What are the ingredients in FlexSyn that make it work? Flexsyn contains high quality Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid, described as proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. GAGs are large molecules found in the joint fluid. Administration of these substances is known to be anti inflammatory and benefit the joint metabolism of horses. There are all sorts of Proteoglycan and GAG formulations used orally, IM, IV and IA in joint injections, which are known to aid joint function to various degrees. These ingredients are the gold standard of natural joint health management. What makes Flexsyn special is its unique delivery and enhanced absorption technology which allows safe, efficient administration of a large volume of ingredient. (See Question 1. Why a suppository?)

8. Can I give 2 FlexSyn tabs at a time for better effect? Some users have reported increased effect when dosing with two tabs. However, some also mention that the horse may also display more energy because he feels so much better.

9. What will it cost me to maintain my horse on FlexSyn? Most people tell us that they are buying the multi dose 6 pack or the economical 30 pack. You can supplement your horse to a beneficial level using 1 dose a week for under 100.00, or 3.25 per day. Of course, each horse is unique in his joint issues and performance regimen, and costs can vary as his response stabilizes.

10. Are there studies on FlexSyn to prove its effectiveness? Flexsyn simply offers a means of supplementing the horse’s natural supply of ingredients found naturally within the joint capsule. CVS has done no scientific studies on Flexsyn to document its particular efficacy and therefore we make no function claims as to its ability to treat or cure any condition.
