1.) Should I use Osteo-MAX if my horse "does not" show any signs of Lameness or Osteoarthritis?
Yes... Yes... & Yes!
According to a study published last year by Neuenschwander, H.M. 2019; horses are unable to maintain enough Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in the Synovial Fluid for proper lubrication of their joints. These findings support daily supplementation of the correct dose amount & type of Hyaluronic Acid to prevent & alleviate joint related problems.
Looking back to a study published in 2004 by Pierce, S.W., oral supplementation is "More Effective" than Intra-Articular injections of Hyaluronic Acid to prevent and treat lameness in horses. Horses that maintained a daily dose of oral Hyaluronic Acid showed improvement of all characteristics.
These results were observed again in a study from November of 2019 by Vet Sci. All groups had a "Significant Increase" in preserving the cartilage and joint circumference with better overall baseline values.
Based on these specific findings, as well as other proven research and countless testimonials from horse owners all around the World, Hyaluronic Acid should be a part of your horses "Daily Nutritional Regimen."
2.) What type of Hyaluronic Acid and how much is in each dose of Osteo-MAX?
Joint Flex has 150 mg per 30 ml dose (1 ounce) one of the highest molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid available in the market today. The weight combination and size is critical for the Synovial fluid to be effective.
3.) How does Molecular Weight impact Synovial Fluid?
The size & concentration levels of Hyaluronic Acid in the Synovial fluid of healthy horses ranges from 1.0-3.0 Million Dalton & 0.3 –1.5 mg/mL. Fluid viscosity, moisture retention capacity, bio-compatibility, and hygroscopic properties is directly correlated to the size and concentration of HA present in Synovial fluid.
These properties of HA in Synovial fluid act as a lubricant, shock absorber, joint structure stabilizer and water balance and flow resistance-regulator. The beneficial effects are due to both rheological and pharmacological mechanisms.
4.) Do horses like the taste?
Horses love the taste of Osteo-MAX, it has a slightly bitter flavor that they enjoy.
Osteo-MAX is 100% Natural and has a gel like consistency so that it can be applied on top of feed to avoid waste.
5.) How long does it take to start working?
The absorption rate of Osteo-MAX after consumption occurs in a few hours. To see an impact on your horses movements / performance will usually take 3-14 days.
The variance in time is based on several factors:
a) the amount of HA that is being replenished
b) the severity of the problems, if any;
c) the horses disposition to feeling better
d) willingness of your horse to work harder, especially if these problems have been ongoing
e) any other underlying issues, known or not
6.) Can Humans or Dogs use this product?
Yes, dogs can take Joint Flex at a smaller dose than horses. The recommended daily oral dose is 1 teaspoon (5 ml) for dogs up to 30 pounds (body weight), 1.5 tsp for dogs between 30 and 60 lbs and 2 tsp for dogs between 60 and 100 pounds. The amount may be doubled for hard-working dogs.
