Vétoquinol is delighted to announce a first in Europe in terms of a new and innovative approach to joint health management through nutrition: Equistro's Flexadin UC-II.
The latest addition to the Flexadin range, Equistro's Flexadin UC-II contains the revolutionary new ingredient UC-II — one of the most effective and influential ingredients available that aids and supports healthy joint function.
UC-II is a native biologically active type II collagen that has been extracted in a patented process that preserves its bioactivity making it more bio available to the horse.
Type II collagen is the principal structural protein in cartilage that is responsible for its tensile strength and toughness. Cartilage is the major primary connective tissue of the body, which provides flexibility and support to bone joints.
So how does Equistro Flexadin UC-II help the horse?
Unique mode of action allows the bio available active collagen in UC-II to work in harmony with horse’s joints.
Supports Hyaluronic acid from the effects of oxidative reactions and helps conserve synovial fluid viscosity
- Helps maintain the structure of proteins in the body and aids in maintaining the immune system;
- Aids in the support of joint comfort and muscle suppleness;
- Maintains levels of antioxidants;

To celebrate the launch of Flexadin UC-II, Vétoquinol is offering a £10 money off voucher, available through purchases of Horse & Hound magazine, starting from November 10.
