- Flex Free® Original Formula is a rich source of purified chondroitin sulfates (CS) blended in a delicious easy-to-feed base of alfalfa meal, vegetable oil and flavorings. Chondroitin sulfates are members of the family of natural body lubricants known as glycosaminoglycans, or GAGs. They are produced in the bodies of horses, humans, and most other animals. As crucial elements of connective tissue and structural cartilage, chondroitin sulfates are involved in the bonding of collagen fibers and the retention of moisture in the cartilage tissue. CS are also found in the skin, blood vessels, and other types of connective tissue. Flex Free® works to replenish these valuable nutrients throughout your horse's body.
Are Chondroitin Sulfates Absorbable? Studies over the past 40 years in Japan, the US and Europe have clearly shown that chondroitin sulfates can be absorbed in intact, biologically active form following oral administration. Using a variety of techniques with laboratory animals, dogs, and humans, researchers have found that up to 40% of dietary chondroitin sulfates can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Flex Free®: A Reputation For Results Introduced by Vita-Flex in 1988, Flex Free® pioneered the oral supplementation of purified glycosaminoglycans for horses. Flex Free is carefully formulated to deliver 1,750 milligrams of chondroitin sulfates per ounce. Thanks to its quality ingredients and performance, Flex Free® has become a standard for equine GAG supplementation.
