Premier Flex HA is a very high specification equine joint supplement that has been formulated to include the very best ingredients that a horse owner can buy in a modern equine joint supplement. Not only does it include high levels of the essential ingredients super strength Glucosamine HCL (far stronger than standard glucosamine), MSM and Omega 3 oils we have also included the very expensive ingredients Chondroitin and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which are the latest innovations in joint supplements and work in synergy with the above. We believe Premier Flex HA to be the best joint supplement for horses that you can buy on the market today.
The formulation of Premier Flex HA joint supplement for horses is unsurpassed in the equine joint supplements market. Premier Flex HA includes the highest level of HA available in equine joint supplements (more than "Cortaflex fortified with Hyaluronic Acid" and even more than "Cortaflex HA" their highest spec brand!)
Premier Flex HA also includes a high level of Chondroitin Sulphate, in fact Premier Flex HA contains 100 times as much Chondroitin per day as NAF 5 Star SuperFlex!! (Premier Flex HA at 1330mg, SuperFlex at 13mg). Premier Flex HA also includes MSM and high levels of Omega 3 and no other joint supplement for horses contains this array and level of ingredients.
The most effective joint supplements for horses work by helping cartilage composition and the production of synovial fluid over a continuous period of time. Premier Flex HA helps all horses that are stiff in their joints and moving badly. It is also an excellent supplement to feed for hard working horses allowing them to compete longer and delaying the wear and tear of hard working joints. Younger horses can also benefit from an equine joint supplement and will help improve joint structure from an early age.
Premier Flex HA does not contravene any rules of the FEI or British Horseracing Authority .

How Does Premier Flex HA Work?
Glucosamine is an amino sugar used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid (joint oil). It stimulates production of GAG’s (glucosaminoglycans) in synovial fluid to enhance lubrication. In addition to being a lubricant this fluid acts as a shock absorber cushioning the joint during exercise. Pain and stiffness occur when the fluid becomes thinner due to age, hard work or disease. After being consumed Glucosamine is absorbed through the wall of the intestine into the body. It is then attracted to the joint cells where it provides the raw material to build up synovial fluid. Premier Flex HA uses super strength Glucosamine HCL, the very best glucosamine (40% more glucosamine than standard glucosamine).
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic Acid is the latest advance in joint supplements. Hyaluronic acid (known as HA) is a component of synovial fluid whose function is to cushion and lubricate the joint. Combined with Glucosamine, Chrondroitin and MSM this group of therapeutics “..provides significant lubrication to the synovial membrane that is responsible for dissipating more than 50% of the friction within the joint” - J. Black, DVM, Senior Partner, Pioneer Equine Hospital, California. HA is very expensive and as such most companies do not include it in their joint supplement. Hyaluronic Acid is a very important ingredient in joint supplements, previously it would be injected into the joint but with a high spec joint such as Premier Flex HA it can now be provided in oral form.
Most bones end in cartilage, a plastic like material which lines the joints preventing bones grating against each other. If this lining wears out the joint becomes stiff and uncomfortable. Chondroitin is chemically similar to glucosamine and is a constituent of cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate works in synergy with glucosamine and HA to help maintain cartilage composition. Chondroitin is also very expensive and often left out of other products or added in only minute quantities.
MSM is a rich source of organic sulphur and crucial as a building block for joints, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. It is essential for all connective tissue and is often fed on its own for joint problems in horses and humans. Combining MSM with glucosamine, chondroitin and HA again has a synergistic effect and no high spec equine joint supplement should be without MSM.
Omega 3 is present in Premier Flex HA in high amounts and this is derived from micronized linseed. Through its digestion the source is broken down into EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids. These are very healthy fatty acids and help lubricate joints and facilitate the movement of synovial fluid in the joint.
Methionine and Lysine
These two ingredients are both amino acids that help with the natural production of MSM.
Vit C and Vit E
Two powerful anti-oxidants that play a key role in neutralising free radicals thereby helping boost the immune system. Vitamin C also helps collagen production and joint problems can occur when there is a lack of collagen in the joints.
Levels of main ingredients at initial feeding amount:

I have been using the product for my horse - 12 years old - joints problems and arthritis during the past 6 months. A very impressive progression when he is walking, excellent product and also a top level range of customer service!
This is the third tub we have bought for our young working hunter pony. Excellent product, not just for older horses. We are using this for long term maintenance
I cannot promote this product enough. I have been using this product for years now. I have all 3 of my horses on Premier Flex HA. My very talented youngster is also using MSM, as he developed large thoroughpins that I was told by a veterinary surgeon, would never disappear. I researched thoroughpins myself, put my horse on MSM and kept him in work, and now they have virtually vanished.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for speedy delivery of the PremierFlex HA. Could not quite believe how quick it arrived! I was doing lots of research of trying to find the best supplement to help my mare but I found your website to be so useful and helpful; listing out what each ingredient does, the levels of each ingredient. I have just finished the 10 day loading amount and can feel a massive difference in my mare already. She is a 21 year old chestnut mare - although don’t tell her that as she’s still 10 at heart!! We did a one day event at the weekend for the British Riding Club Qualifier and she won! For a 21 year old she had the best dressage of 24.5, an unfortunate pole show jumping and then a fantastic clear round the 90cm cross course inside the time. Not only did I notice on the day she felt more supple, the next day she was not as stiff /sore as I have seen her before. So thank you, hopefully feeding her this she will be able to carry on her eventing career for a few more years as she loves it so much, as do I riding her.
we have our 2 ex racers on this product and have noticed big changes in them. Would highly recommend this product and ours will certainly be staying on it.
I've been using Premierflex HA on my daughter's 18 year old pony for 3 months now and the difference in him is amazing. He is much more supple and doesn't walk out of his stable stiff any more. It is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it. We tried a few different joint supplements before Premierflex HA and absolutely nothing compares to it.
Fantastic results with Premier Flex HA, the improvement in my eventers way of going is just amazing, I'm chuffed to bits to say the least. The freedom of movement and his general way of going especially in his hocks is fabulous, thrilled with the results. Not only does he feel amazing to ride, his imrovement has been noticed by trainers and friends.
I have been using Premier Flex HA on my competition horses for over a year and have been so impressed I have also trialled it on our retired ex racehorse. He was on bute everyday but since using Premier Flex HA this has been reduced down to an occasional use when weather conditions are bad. I am so impressed with this product that I am now going to trial some more of Equine Answers products.
The Premier Flex HA is brilliant...proof is in the pudding with my 20yo Connemara, who has this year competed 400 competitive kilometre in Endurance rides and he flies around the courses at 15 kph ,and passes the vet's with flying colours !! And the fact that he has been champion of Aquitaine for the 6th year says it all...Highly recommended!!!!!!
The best joint supplement I've ever used, my horse was diagnosed with hock arthritis and this works better than what the vet prescribed us!! My old boy is back to acting his normal self thinking he's 5 not 18!!!
I put Charlie on Premier Flex HA joint supplement having previously used Cortaflex HA. Not only was Premier Flex HA cheaper but he seemed to be even better on it. My farrier even commented on how more flexible my horse was in his back end having previously been problematic when shoeing. .... got to say Premier Flex HA is the best joint supplement for horses I have ever used!
My horse has always has been stiff in his joints and more recently got worse due to his age ..... his shoes have been removed and he is no longer ridden. He seems to move more smoothly and certainly isn't as stiff since being on Premier Flex HA joint supplement, and I have noticed in particular when he is being turned out in the morning walks more freely, I will therefore continue to use Premier Flex as it is has made a huge difference to my horse.
After just under 2 months of using Premier Flex HA joint supplement I have noticed that Prince is certainly more comfortable. He hasn't been ridden yet but the signs are positive and I am keen to continue using Premier Flex HA ..... I am very pleased with the results and the delivery of the product was excellent very prompt.
I would like to THANK YOU for this superb product, let me tell you: 4 months ago my 23yr old very very much loved sec D gelding, was unable to walk on his front leg due to an accident and although not in any pain, he kept knuckling over at the fetlock joint. He was unable to put his heel on the floor and walked on his toe, it was thought he had little or no chance of recovery. Clutching at every straw possible I tried NAF Superflex for 2 months with no improvement. As a last ditch attempt I bought this product of yours, after 12 days he is now 90% of the time putting his foot fully on the floor, he is turned out in a small paddock on his own for 20mins am and pm and nobody can believe the dramatic change! I feel 100% that your product has something to do with it. I can't thank you enough, you've given me my horse back, I've had him for 19 years. Many thanks
Just a quick email to say how much I love your Premier Flex HA. I now have all my riding club friends ordering it. I noticed a difference in my horse, after two weeks she was springing over the fences and our dressage scores improved. I cannot recommend your products enough. Thank you so much for your fab products!!
Thought I would drop a quick note to say how impressed I am with the results of your Premier Flex. My 21 year old mare was feeling stiff and not wanting to canter (very unusual) despite being on NAF Superflex for approx. 3 years. I decided to try Premier Flex HA after doing a few hours of research on the internet. My old lady has now got her old sparkle back!
