Stay Sound on Hard Ground - with NAF

by Eland Lodge 01 Jul 2022 0 Comments


Harder ground increases concussive forces in particular through the lower legs. Older horses and those with existing joint issues tend to be more predisposed to risk from hard ground.


How does hard ground affect my horse?

The digital cushion is the horse’s very own shock absorbing feature, located in the hoof capsule. It is capable of reducing the mechanical load and helping disperse energy.

This energy travels up the lower leg and compromises the overall performance of the ligaments, tendons, soft tissue, muscle system and of course the joint capsules themselves. While most of the soft tissues are capable of renewing themselves, it is the joint capsule itself where irrevocable damage can occur, and so it is this area we must look to support.


The Sound solution delivered by Five Star Superflex

Rather than feeding one or two ingredients, look for the right combination to address wear and tear, help address toxin activity, seek synovial strength and provide nourishment for the soft tissue to promote their regenerative process.

Trust Five Star Superflex and deliver the Sound solution:


Flush out the free radicals

Feed ANTIOXIDANTS to help to disperse free radicals and harmlessly flush them from your horse’s system, helping to prevent them from causing further damage and making way for the joint nutrients to get to work.


Don’t forget to connect

The connective tissues require and consist of GLUCOSAMINE.  Support the regeneration of connective tissue and keep the horse moving with ease, with increased levels for the older horse or those with predisposing conditions.  


Care and Repair

MSM supports circulation and the anti-inflammatory processes with further benefits provided to the immune system.  For joints MSM helps to sustain the health of both cartilage and collagen which has been widely trialled and reported on.


Stimulate the production 

CHONDROITIN is naturally present in healthy cartilage as it helps to stimulate the production of cartilage or joint surfaces.


Additional care for the aging joint

OMEGA-3 fatty acids have proven to be effective in supporting the recognised joint nutrient capabilities and have positive effects of joint cartilage, one trial supported a more productive trot stride. 


Synovial fluid support

HA helps to keep synovial fluid healthy and provide a protection from invasion of unwanted molecules.


All joints undergo the natural wear and tear process daily, it is wise to support all individuals to help them enjoy their performance for longer and supply them with flexibility for life.

Superflex is available as a powder, liquid and a senior version.
