2 measures (70 g) of OSTEOFLEXY provide... 7,500 mg of calcium, 5,000 mg of glucosamine (sulphate 2 KCl), 3,750 mg of phosphorus, 2,500 mg of MSM, 1,750 mg of magnesium, 180 mg of chelated zinc*, 100 mg of chelated manganese*, 63 mg of chelated copper*, 2,500 IU of vitamin D3, 6 mg of vitamin K3.
* Amino acids chelates
A source of minerals, trace elements, vitamins & chondroprotective agents. Contributes to improving bone mineralization and cartilage & bone turnover.
Covers daily requirements in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, vitamins D3 and K3
Supports bone mineralization for young growing horses
Mineralization disorders, healing support after a fracture
Distribute with cereals or compound feed. Mix well into the feed. 1 measure = 35 g
ADULT HORSES, YOUNG GROWING HORSES (ADULT LIVE WEIGHT = 500 KG)
2 measures (70 g) equivalent to 14 g / 100 kg (live weight)
Maximal recommended dose
4 measures (140 g) equivalent to 28 g / 100 kg (live weight)
For ponies, the daily dose should correspond to the animals’ live-weight.
Calcium, phosphorus and magnesium are essential minerals that contribute to optimal bone mineralization. Calcium from marine origin is better assimilated than calcium provided by limestone. Lithothamnion has been shown to increase bone mineralization and bone turnover after 112 days compared to calcium carbonate from limestone.
Glucosamine is the precursor of many of the constituents of proteoglycans and of hyaluronic acid. In cartilage, hyaluronic acid is bound with proteoglycans and form aggregates which assure good hydration of this tissue. In the synovial fluid joints, hyaluronic acid has a role of lubricant and chondroprotective agent. It has been shown that glucosamine supplementation decreased inflammation while supporting the growth of new cartilage in response to a joint insult in young growing horses when the glucosamine was administered for 84 days prior to the insult.
MSM also possesses chondroprotective properties. It is also a source of organic sulphur indispensable to the synthesis of collagen, an abundant cartilage protein, giving it hydration, resistance, elasticity and suppleness properties.
Zinc, manganese and copper are supplied in the best amino acids chelates form available. These trace elements are associated with a number of enzymes which have an important role concerning bone and cartilage formation in the body.
Vitamin D3 participates in bone mineralization, because of its role in regulating the phosphocalcic balance.
In horses, vitamin K3 (menadione) has been shown to be the only vitamin K homologue that increases the plasma concentration of menaquinone-4, the most effective vitamin K form regulating bone metabolism. Vitamin K contributes to increasing bone mass and strenght by stimulating bone formation and reducing bone resorption.
Precautions for use
Due to the presence of high levels of vitamins and trace elements, respect the recommendations.
Store in a dry place, away from light, at a temperature of between 5 and 25°C.
