Frequently Asked Questions
Why a suppository? Suppositories have been a widely used but little discussed means in human and veterinary medicine for delivering a variety of ingredients efficiently and easily. The elimination of the undesirable destructive effects of the digestive process and the ease of absorption through the large colon have been shown in studies to allow the actives to quickly enter the bloodstream intact. In addition, the effect of the liver which sequesters and eliminates much of the Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid when fed to the horse in current products, is bypassed by the colon’s return blood supply. Risks inherent in IM and IV injections are avoided with no loss of comparable efficacy. The efficiency of suppository even compared to injection is quite favorable. These features make suppository delivery ideal for these joint supplement ingredients.
How quickly does it work? Anecdotal reports indicate that within 18 to 24 hours of first administration users see visible evidence of benefit of supplementation like reduction in joint effusion, improved range of motion and general improved performance. The reported speed of action and improved performance suggests it is a preferred choice for pre-event joint and comfort support.*
How long do the effects of FlexSyn last? Users report that they see benefits of a single supplementation persist for 4 to 5 days.*
Is there a loading period for FlexSyn? While a single dose seems to provide noticeable benefit for 4 or 5 days, users tell us that administering a single dose 4 days apart for 2 to 3 administrations provides a baseline. Users then give 1 dose every 7 to 10 days, with added doses used as a pre-performance boost. In high performing situations, a daily dose for 4 consecutive days is also reported to provide outstanding results, with the maintenance follow up of 1 dose per week offering effective maintenance.
How do I store FlexSyn? FlexSyn should be stored at room temperature, with care taken to refrigerate if there is a chance of seeing temperatures over 80 degrees.
My FlexSyn was in 90 degree temperatures and is a little soft to my touch. What do I do? No worries! Simply pop the FlexSyn packages into a refrigerator for an hour or two and it will reform. Heat will not damage the actives.
What are the ingredients in FlexSyn that make it work? FlexSyn contains high quality Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine HCL and Hyaluronic Acid, described as proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. GAGs are large molecules found in the joint fluid. Administration of these substances is known to be anti inflammatory and benefit the joint metabolism of horses. There are all sorts of Proteoglycan and GAG formulations used orally, IM, IV and IA in joint injections, which are known to aid joint function to various degrees. These ingredients are the gold standard of natural joint health management. What makes FlexSyn special is its unique delivery and enhanced absorption technology which allows safe, efficient administration of a large volume of ingredient.
Can I give 2 FlexSyn suppositories at a time for better effect? Some users have reported increased effect when dosing with two suppositories. However, some also mention that the horse may also display more energy because he feels so much better.
What will it cost me to maintain my horse on FlexSyn? Most people are buying the multi dose 6 pack or the economical 30 pack. You can supplement your horse to a beneficial level using 1 dose a week for under $100.00, or $3.25 per day. Of course, each horse is unique in his joint issues and performance regimen, and costs can vary as his response stabilizes.
Are there studies on FlexSyn to prove its effectiveness? FlexSyn simply offers a means of supplementing the horse’s natural level of ingredients found naturally within the joint capsule. Custom Veterinary Specialties has done no scientific studies on FlexSyn to document its particular efficacy and therefore we make no function claims as to its ability to treat or cure any condition.
