FLEX GOLD is a balanced liquid supplement designed to perfect functioning of the movement mechanism of the horse and the dog. FLEX GOLD contains essential building blocks for joints, tendons, ligaments and bone. FLEX is a synergistic combination of unique nutritional ingredients, not yet available on the market.
FLEX GOLD is the result of 25 years of support for all types of horses, including jumping, show, dressage and racehorses and companion animals, such as dogs and cats, by veterinarians of De Morette. De Morette are the leading veterinary practices in Belgium.
GOLDMEDICS has materialized this know-how in collaboration with one of the European pioneers of functional foods into its own range of supplements.
Only ingredients that have a scientifically proven effect and that have achieved outstanding results in the veterinary practice are used.
In FLEX GOLD we strive for a double effect: the degradation of the joint must be stopped and the incurred damage must be repaired. The cartilage will be repaired and the joint will produce better quality/more viscous synovial fluid, so that the joint better absorbs shocks, resulting in a smoother moving animal. FLEX GOLD is also used in a preventive way to protect damage the animal tendons and joints.
Research shows that 80 % of dogs, after a 6 months treatment, are able to perform again jumps into the car or the sofa.
These are the main ingredients:
Acetylglucosamine reduces pain, swelling and stiffness and is more efficient than the often-used glucosamine, because the body has to convert glucosamine into acetylglucosamine before being active. Which is a rate-determining step. Acetylglucosamine is one of the 8 essential amino sugars in the body; it is the building block for hyaluronic acid, and a key element for the biosynthesis of glucosaminoglycans required for the synthesis of bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues.
Hyaluronic acid functions in the joint as a shock absorber and lubricant. Hyaluronic acid also allows for synthesis of proteoglycans, important factor of elasticity of the cartilage. We have opted for a molecular size that is better absorbed in the body and that has been shown to effectively migrate into the joint.
Two collagen peptides of different molecular weight are added. Seventy percent of the cartilage consists of collagen. Studies with these peptides showed improvement in pain and lameness, mobility, vitality and the production of new cartilage.
The images on one of the pictures on this page show the difference in the quality of the cartilage between people who have ingested the supplement three months compared with people who have ingested a placebo (a similar product but with no active ingredients) during the same three months. The effect of the supplement on the remodeling of the cartilage is very clear.
Research shows that 80 % of dogs, after a 6 months treatment, are able to perform again jumps into the cat or the sofa.
Bamboo extract contains the highest natural content of silicon of plant extracts. The role of silicon is known in the mineralization of bone, collagen synthesis, hyaluronic synthesis and stimulation of the immune system.
MSM has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, it is an important organic sulfur compound. Several hormones, enzymes, proteins, structure, and strength of cartilage, skin and hair are dependent on the concentration of sulfur in the body. Sulfur is also one of the main constituents of collagen, present in joints, tendons and ligaments.
An interesting side of FLEX GOLD is its beneficial effect on skin and hair.

Recommended dose for horses:
The recommended dose is 50ml/day per 500 kg horse. Preferably half in the morning and half in the evening.
During long-term preventive administration and no visible symptoms, the dose may be reduced to 25 ml / day.
At the start-up, when joints are swollen, and / or lameness is occurring a doubling of the dose to 2 x 50 ml / day is recommended.
If cartilage repair is required, treatment should be provided for at least 12 weeks.
FLEX GOLD for horses is available in 1 L bottle and a cheaper 5 liters.
Recommended dose for dogs and cats:
Cats and small dogs (<10kg): 5ml / day; medium (10 to 25 kg) and large dogs (> 25kg) 7,5ml / day
If cartilage repair is necessary, treatment should preferably be provided for at least 12 weeks.
FLEX GOLD for dogs and cats is available in a 0,5 L bottle.
