Advantages and science
As a horse ages and/or performs, the molecular building structures that make up bones, joints, ligaments, cartilage, muscles and tendons simply can not be produced at a fast enough rate to replace the ones that are being depleted. This process results in the cartilage and synovial fluid, that cushions the joints, to be broken down and the connective tissues to become weakened. This degenerative process results in the immediate inflammation of the joint, lameness, and leads to osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease.
So what is it that the horse's body needs that it's unable to produce at a fast enough rate? The answer is collagen.
The number one molecular building block outside of water that makes up these connective tissues (cartilage, bone, ligaments and tendons) is collagen. These important connective tissues are made up of collagen in the following amounts: Bone 25-50%, Cartilage >66%, Ligaments >60% and Tendons >85%. Collagen plays a huge role in a horse's physical health.
Medelys Laboratoires International Inc. has developed a series of formulas to deal with the degenerative processes in horses using natural products.
The EQ Maxi-Coll Concentrate was formulated to combine the strong synergy between collagen and aminoglycans (glucosamine and chondroitin) and to utilize them metabolically to target the sites in a horse's body where connective tissues have been previously damaged. The treatment combines all of the necessary ingredients the horse's body needs to repair the damaged areas and to begin the regeneration process.
The EQ Pro-Coll Maintenance formula helps to maintain health in joints that have not yet been damaged by providing a concentrated amount of collagen to the connective tissues of the horse's body. This formula will maintain the healthy process of regenerating connective tissues as a horse ages and performs.
The Revo-Flexx Formula is a topical spray that was formulated to aid in temporarily reducing aches and pain in muscles and joints after a physical regiment has taken place. This formula penetrates the horse's tissues to reduce inflammation and heat, allowing the horse's body to regenerate its connective tissues without aches and pains.
Each of these products is a scientifically formulated and tested natural supplement designed to work with the horse's body to promote, maintain and sustain health in horses.
The Science Behind ER
The number one molecular building block, outside of water, that makes up a horse's connective tissues is collagen. Medelys Laboratoires International Inc. created EQ Maxi-Coll and EQ Pro-Coll products, ER Maintenance formulas after careful analysis and research on how the joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons of performance and aging horses break-down over time causing joint inflammation, osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease. Medelys has developed a series of formulas to deal with the degenerative processes in horses using natural products.
