Hestevard's 2 Stage Approach to Joint Support

Hestevard's 2 Stage Approach to Joint Support

Each horse is different and so is the condition of their joints - that’s why it is critical to make sure you carefully select the right type of joint supplement based on the age, genetics and level of activity. By reading this you will learn which approach is most suitable for your horse so you can select the stage most appropriate for them.

Hestevard has formulated a 2-stage approach to joint care. Understanding these stages will allow you to make the difference to your horse and assist them to reach optimum orthopaedic comfort. There is a place for every horse within this 2-stage approach - it offers young horses the best assistance for a long and successful career, along with the most comprehensive care for older horses and horses in rehabilitation.

Depending on a set of criteria, with the assistance of your vet, you can easily identify which product is right for your horse:

STAGE 1 JOINT SUPPORT: PROACTIVE SUPPORT

STAGE 2 JOINT SUPPORT: REACTIVE SUPPORT

STAGE 1 AND 2 COMBINED: THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE, POWERFUL JOINT SUPPORT

Discover which stage is right for your horse:

 

Stage 1 Joint Support – Hesteflex

Hesteflex has a triple action formula which supports the maintenance of joints and tendons in horses of all ages. It is best used as a proactive supplement for younger horses or horses preparing for intense training and competition.

 

  • Joint & Tendon comfort
  • Proactive preventative measure
  • Reactive joint support
  • 100% active ingredients
  • Zero fillers
  • UK competition safe
  • Palatability Guarantee

 

What does Hesteflex contain?

Hesteflex is 100% natural, and all the ingredients are from sustainable sources. Each 11.28g sachet/scoop contains the following key ingredients:

  • Glucosamine HCl 99%
  • Chondroitin Sulphate
  • Boswellia Serrata
  • MSM
  • Vitamin C
  • Natural Vitamin E

There are no fillers or sugars in Hesteflex, and it is kind to the gut.

 

Why feed Hesteflex to my horse?

The unique blend of ingredients makes Hesteflex the perfect choice for horses requiring joint and tendon support that are younger during intense training or competition. Hesteflex can also be used in association with BozMerix to supercharge the joint support action.

 

How to feed Hesteflex?

Hesteflex is available in either a daily sachet or a 100% recyclable pouch with an 11.28g scoop for ease of use. For the first 14 days, we recommend using a loading rate of Hesteflex, add 3 sachets or scoops to the morning feed ration for your horse. Upon completion of the loading period, you can then simply add one scoop/sachet per day for maintenance (based on horse up to 300-600kg).

 

How long will it take to see results?

Each horse is different, however, due to the proactive benefit of using Hesteflex, we recommend using Hesteflex prior to any joint or tendon degeneration begins. We always recommend starting with the loading rate and consult your vet for additional information.

 

Where to buy Hesteflex?

Hesteflex is available to purchase from veterinary practices. If you are unsure whether your practice sells Hestevard supplements, then please contact us for support via www.hestevard.com – we are always happy to help.

 

How many days' supply does each pack size contain?

Sachets - 60pack- up to 120 days’ supply

Pouch - 1.7kg- up to 300 days’ supply

Stage 2 Joint Support- BozMerix

BozMerix is a revolutionary supplement designed to aid the natural systems in the horse that control inflammation and assist joint and muscular comfort.

  • Aids natural systems that control inflammation
  • Joint & Muscular comfort
  • Reactive joint support
  • 100% active ingredients
  • UK competition safe
  • Palatability Guarantee

 

What does BozMerix contain?

BozMerix is 100% natural and every 10g scoop or sachet contains 4 key ingredients:

  • Micro encapsulated Curcumin (This is the active part of Turmeric, micro encapsulated for 360 times more absorption/ bioavailability than standard Turmeric)
  • Boswellia Serrata
  • Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiable (ASU)
  • Omega 3 Powder Concentrates – EPA & DHA

There’s no sugar in BozMerix, and it is kind to the gut whilst assisting joint and muscular comfort.

 

Why feed BozMerix to my horse?

The unique blend of ingredients makes BozMerix the perfect choice for horses:

  • Showing signs of stiffness or reduced mobility that are older
  • During periods of rehabilitation
  • During intense training or competition

BozMerix can also be used in association with Hesteflex to supercharge joint support. If your horse is older, post-surgery or particularly troubled with joint inflammation, then we advise supplementing with both BozMerix and Hesteflex as a dual approach and will require no withdrawal period ahead of competition (under UK regulations).

 

How to feed BozMerix?

BozMerix is available in convenient 10g sachets or a 1.5kg pouch with 10g scoop (included) making it easy to use for all ages of rider.

For horses of all ages, feed 2 sachets or scoops daily for the first 10 days or during intense training or rehabilitation. Following this initial loading rate, you may continue to feed at 2 sachets per day or you may drop to a maintenance rate of 1 sachet/scoop per day.

Please take care when opening the sachet or pouch as BozMerix may stain clothing.

 

When will I see the results?

Each horse is different; however, you will normally start to see results after 10 days of continual use. This sample pack is designed so you can check palatability and not to provide instant results.

 

Where to buy BozMerix?

BozMerix is available to purchase from veterinary practices. If you are unsure whether your practice sells Hestevard supplements, then again, please contact us for support via www.hestevard.com – we are always happy to help.

 

How many days' supply does each pack size contain?

Sachets – 20pack - Up to 20 days' supply

Sachets – 60pack - Up to 60 days' supply

Pouch – 1.5kg – up to 150 days' supply

 

Stage 1 AND 2 - Maximum Joint support 

 

Hesteflex and BozMerix Together

For a truly synergistic result, Hesteflex and BozMerix can be used together to deliver the most comprehensive orthopaedic support on the market, excluding competition prohibiting products.

This final stage of joint support encompasses the highest-grade ingredients, and these ingredients work together synergistically to significantly relieve inflammation and reduce stiffness and discomfort. This happens because Hesteflex and BozMerix have a complementary effect when fed together.  

If your horse is older, post-surgery or particularly troubled with joint inflammation, then we advise supplementing with both BozMerix and Hesteflex as a dual approach.

None of these stages will require a withdrawal period ahead of competition (under UK regulations).

 

How to feed Hesteflex and BozMerix together?

Feeding these products together does not affect the dose rate. This means you should feed the daily recommended dose for each and based on the weight and exercise intensity for your horse. 

Hestevard is recommended and trusted by vets worldwide. These are vet only products but can be ordered directly from your vet.
