Audevard Laboratories innovate with a new supplement to strengthen tendons and ligaments and free the horses bounce : EKYFLEX TENDON EVO.
This new product replaces Ekyflex Tendon in the Audevard orthopaedic range.
Studies on tendons have shown that with age and/or exercise tendon degeneration and a decrease in the quality of the fibres are observed.1 This phenomenon translates into signs of weakness visible to the naked eye: 70% of owners have already noticed signs of tendon damage (heat, swelling, etc.) without marked lameness. If these signs appear too frequently and are not treated, the risk of tendinitis is increased: a pathology with a long and perilous healing protocol, the outcome of which is uncertain, as 80% of horses relapse.2
Scientific advances are now making possible to have a formula specifically dedicated to the needs of tendons and ligaments. Thanks to a combination of scientifically validated ingredients, Ekyflex Tendon EVO provides a triple action for tendons to strengthen collagen fibres:
- Create quality collagen (thanks to Tendogen I, a mix of amino acids and White Willow)
- Optimise the tendon environment (thanks to Boswellia Serrata and Citrus)
- Strengthen the attachment of tendons and ligaments to the bone (thanks to Vitamin D3)
Ekyflex Tendon EVO can be used: for horses with signs of tendon weakness, for horses with a history of tendon problems or for horses in training. But it is also indicated after a tendon incident to support the recovery phase.
With this new product, Audevard Laboratories are also committed to an eco-responsible approach thanks to a new packaging made of plant-based plastic.
EKYFLEX TENDON EVO is available in 2 formats: 900g and 1.8kg.
You can find this new formula at your vets.
