This is the product of choice and recommended for all levels of competition if you all looking for an all-in-one and advanced care product to protect joints. 


To move freely bones have joints. The ends of these are coated in cartilage (known as articular cartilage). This cartilage provides a cushion surface and prevents the contact of the two bones rubbing, the joint is then enclosed in a joint capsule containing an abundance of synovial fluid. The joint ends bath in this fluid which allows range of movement. A Lack of joint lubricant results in poor cartilage health (leading to bone spurs) and DJD (degenerative joint disease).

Hydra-flex HA™ Active uses ingredients that maintain this lubrication, control inflammation and aid in the maintenance of healthy cartilage. Hydra-flex HA™ Active is a concentrated product, free of dextrose and fillers for maximum protection.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a primary component of the synovial fluid providing a slip surface. This helps to reduce friction on cartilage surfaces. The molecular weight chosen is high molecular which shares the same attributes as native HA found in the synovial fluids. This has been shown in multiple studies to be best absorbed and therefore most benefit to joint structures (Journal of Applied Nutrition; volume 54, number 1, 2004).  

Vitamin C assists in the formation of collagen and strengthening of tissue and structures and is also a component required for healthy cartilage.

Green-lip mussel extract offers more protection to joints. Scientific studies show green-lip mussel extract to be highly effective as an ant-inflammatory and pain relief ingredient (research studies on people). However, not all Greenlip mussel extracts are alike. We use a special extract, proven to retain the important anti-inflammatory components, often destroyed during processing with many other extracts. Inflammation is damaging as it releases enzymes which weaken tissue and cartilage. Green-lip mussel is also a natural source of chondroitin, glucosamine and omega 3.

Chondroitin Sulphate – Chondroitin sulphate is shown in multiple studies to support cartilage and aid in repair of cartilage. Long term use of glucosamine sulphate in combination with chondroitin sulphate is shown in clinical trials to improve joint function. A recent veterinary trial (published) also found that when glucosamine and chondroitin were used long term there was less need for injectable joint care when compared to horses in the placebo group.

For horses with joint issues (such as degenerative joint conditions) we recommend a dose of 45-60 grams per 500kg bodyweight.
