Glucosamine is a precurser to glycosamnioglycans, which are a major component of joint cartilage. Glucosamine may help to support the body’s lubricants, shock absorbers and structural elements, helping to maintain healthy joints.
MSM is organic sulfur, which is widely utilized by the body in the formation of connective tissue.
HA or Hyaluronic Acid
HA or Hyaluronic Acid is present in every tissue of the body and is seen most in the synovial fluid, which surrounds the joints. This fluid is needed to serve as a lubricant, shock absorber and also carrying nutrients to help protect the joints. The synovial fluid is also important in the maintenance of cartilage again supporting the bones.
Manganese is used as a basis for receiving all the essential minerals for the formation of connective tissue (such as cartilage). Manganese also aids in keeping bones strong.
Alfalfa is naturally high in protein, calcium, plus other minerals, vitamin A, vitamins in the B group, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K.

My top horse Malin Head Clover is fed on MaxaFlex. The flex as well is a great product I took him off it mid season when he had a week off after Tattersalls and I could really see a difference in just the way he walked out of his stable!!

My horse, Bobby, has been on numerous vitamin supplements and joint supplements for years, which has not only made him a fussy eater but also made feed making a painful chore! MaxaFlex has been brilliant! With one scoop not only does he receive all his necessary vitamins but also his joint care, which has left him looking healthy and his stiffness has been at an all time low! I now can make my feeds in half the time…..thank you Maxavita!
I emailed a couple of months ago, but just wanted to say for everyone to see how fantastic Maxaflex is. Teq had been on every joint supplement in the book, but Maxaflex gave her a new lease of life and this year she was galloping around the paddock like a two year old again.
