Farnam Introduces MaxFlex XR -- Specially Formulated to Provide 24-Hour Joint Care


Maintaining healthy joints is a challenge that horse owners face when it comes to caring for their horses — especially for those equine athletes who compete in strenuous sports. Whether competing in English or Western style events, a lot of torque is placed on joints as the horse shifts its center of gravity, placing additional stress on its joints.

Unlike other glucosamine products that may dissolve within an hour or less, MaxFlex™ XR Extended Release is the only joint supplement containing an extended release glucosamine formula that keeps glucosamine in the horse’s system for a full 24-hours, more than 24 times longer than other joint supplements on the market. Research* shows that extended release forms of active ingredients, such as glucosamine, can extend the action of the ingredient in the body.

Just one serving of MaxFlex XR daily keeps glucosamine in your horse’s system, releasing slowly over time, providing a constant supply of available glucosamine to the joints.

Glucosamine is found naturally in the bodies of animals and is important for healthy joints. It is a component of the tissue that covers the surfaces of the joints (i.e., hocks, fetlocks, pastern, coffin and stifle) called anticular cartilage. When a joint is put under stress or damaged, these cells cannot keep up with the demand for this important ingredient.

Each serving of MaxFlex™ XR Extended Release Joint Formula delivers 5,000 mg. of glucosamine, plus a combination of trusted joint supplement ingredients including MSM, Chondroitin Sulfate, Ester C®, Hyaluronic Acid and Manganese Sulfate. These ingredients provide substances that are needed to help keep the cartilage tissue and surrounding cushion healthy. MaxFlex XR provides these important elements, which are so necessary for healthy joint function.
