Leg Support Update

In an earlier post I mentioned I've started Delphi on the joint supplement TriSport. On continued research, I've decided to add three key ingredients (in addition to glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, methylsulfonylmethane [MSM], vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid [HA]) in order to support not only the joints but the tendons and ligaments as well:

  • Collagen, a primary protein found in tendons and ligaments.
  • Silica, a trace mineral that is essential to resilient connective tissue.
  • Grape seed extract, an antioxidant that promotes the repair of connective tissue and inhibits the enzymes that break down collagen.
The supplement SmartFlex Repair contains all of the above ingredients (glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, vitamin C, HA, collagen, silica, and grape seed extract) and is available in pellets so you can avoid the powder cloud or the horse leaving any powder stuck to the bottom of her feed bin.
