TITAN FLEX is a combination of energy, herbs and several other ingredients that promote joint and tissue health. The origin of TITAN FLEX is a desire to provide extra help and relief to horses with a high activity level, older horses and/or horses with reduced functioning, pain and reduced mobility.
ESSENTIAL because: Energy is the key to all life. ESSENTIAL is the foundation of our assortment. It supports performance and enhances well-being, health and harmony. Your horse will be keen to work, have more endurance, and recover faster. The main ingredient of ESSENTIAL is Swedish-grown, traceable rapeseed. The rapeseed oil undergoes a scientifically developed process that corresponds with natural digestion. The result is a concentrated source of energy in a water-soluble powder form. The final product allows your horse to immediately and fully benefit from the energy that originated in the oil. The energy becomes more accessible for the horse’s metabolism when it is in water-soluble form, because the horse can easily digest the product, which in turn results in a minimal impact on the sensitive digestion system and intestinal functioning. This also results in a smaller load for the liver and kidneys.
Glucosamine, because: Naturally bio-absorbent glucosamine is a natural component of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are a type of carbohydrate found in most tissue in the body, primarily the joints, cartilage and connective tissue. GAGs also build up synovial fluid in the joints, which become significantly thicker and more elastic. Nutrients maintain joint cartilage through “lubrication” in order to potentially be regenerated. The thicker, more elastic joint fluid can serve as a buffer that prevents bone and cartilage ends from wearing against each other. The result is considerable pain alleviation; pain can also disappear completely.
GOPO Rose hip, because: Rose hip is increasingly acclaimed for its beneficial effects against osteoarthritis. Several studies have shown that GOPO Rose hip helps with joint problems and rheumatoid arthritis. The substance stops the breakdown of joint cartilage and promotes cartilage regeneration. Cartilage serves as a shock absorber for the joints. Wear to the joints means the cartilage there has become thinner or disappeared completely. This causes stiff joints and often pain. Galactolipids in GOPO stop the breakdown of cartilage and help it regenerate. Doctors say that the combination of both the shell and core of rose hips give GOPO its anti-inflammatory effect and help build up the joints.
Honey, because: Honey contains numerous substances that benefit the body, including fructose, which regulates blood sugar, and magnesium, which is good for the heart. Honey’s abundance of bactericidal substances also makes it a preservative, as well as medicinal. Honey is still recommended in natural medicine today for its beneficial properties. In addition to energy, honey is rich in beneficial minerals, amino acids, enzymes and antibiotic-like substances. Honey has a prebiotic effect (serves as food for the belly’s good bacteria) and it is also anti-inflammatory. This makes honey bactericidal and antifungal. Studies show that honey is beneficial for skin and can help wounds heal.
Beets, because: It is rich in nitrate, which is converted in the body into nitric oxide. Studies show that the molecule expands and relaxes blood vessels, which in turn contributes to more oxygen-rich blood. Beets are abundant with alkaloids and folic acid, which together contribute to reducing the body’s homocysteine levels. Research shows that high homocysteine levels increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is no coincidence that so many athletes drink beet juice when they want to perform their best – the high nitrate content is not just for blood pressure. Better circulation, lower blood pressure, and improved performance, metabolism and muscle functioning are what your horse can gain from eating beets. With an increased oxygen supply, muscle stamina increases and your horse can perform better and longer. Even if the horse eats healthfully otherwise, there are still some toxins and waste products that must be cleaned out, and the liver bears the brunt of this work. A daily dose of beets can help. Studies show that betaine, an amino acid found in beets, can prevent and reduce the risk of liver disease. Beets are chock full of antioxidants which protect against cardiovascular disease and more. New research even shows that the substance that gives the root vegetable its pigment, betacyanin, can protect against carcinogenic substances.
Sarsaparilla, because: Sarsaparilla has historically been used to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis. Products with this herb were launched as both blood-purifying and anti-inflammatory. Some reports indicate that sarsaparilla has anti-inflammatory effects and promotes liver health.
MSM, because: MSM provides the body with organic sulphur and is beneficial for everything from joint pain to skin problems, brittle hooves, coat problems and more. Vitamin C improves the uptake and effect of MSM. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulphur, which comprises 0.25% of your horse’s body weight. Sulphur is primarily found in the body’s protein-rich tissues such as cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones, skin, coat and hooves. Because it is an important building block for these tissues, MSM supplements can help with joint problems, pain, inflammation, eczema, dry and itchy skin, and with poor fur quality. Sulphur is an important structural component for the formation of collagen, glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin sulphate – three essential substances for joint health. All are involved in the formation of shock-absorbing joint cartilage, which breaks down in the presence of diseases like osteoarthritis. Studies confirm that MSM supplements can reduce pain and stiffness due to osteoarthritis. Taking MSM is also good for working horses, because it can alleviate sore muscles, improve recovery and
reduce oxidative stress that occurs in conjunction with physical exertion.
Liquorice root, because: Liquorice root has functioned as a medicinal plant for thousands of years in many countries and cultures, and is considered one of the most used and proven herbs. Liquorice is used in particular in Eastern cooking and medicine. It is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals and oxidative stress.
Menyanthes, because: Researchers at the Division of Pharmacognosy at Uppsala University have conducted pharmacological and chemical studies on menyanthes. A decoction of the plant has been shown to reduce inflammation and have protective effects with kidney damage. In Linnaeus’ book Materia Medica (1749) it is recommended for kidney inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis, and for the stomach. Studies have also shown that menyanthes is effective for treating loss of appetite.
