Green-lipped mussel for horses
Technyflex® Equine is a natural arthritis product for horses that relieves sore and inflamed joints and arthritic symptoms. It is a natural alternative to NSAIDs.
May help reduce the symptoms of:
- Musculo Skeletal Conditions (hock, fetlock, back, knee, neck)
- Low Grade Chronic Lameness
- Bowed Tendons
- Navicular Disease
- Queensland Big Head (nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism (NSHP)
- Queensland Itch/Summer Itch
Natural – High in the following nutritional values:
- Chondroitin sulphates
- Essential fatty acids
- Omega 3
- Omega 6
- ETAs eicosatetraenoic acids
- EPA eicosapentaenoic acid
- DHA docosahexaenoic acid
Technyflex® Equine is derived from the New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel powder.
Our Products contain natural glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate (glycosaminoglycans/mucopolysaccharides). Glycosaminoglycans play an important part of rebuilding cartilage and connective tissue and they also inhibit wear and tear in joints.
We have continued to use our proprietary processing technique on our New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel extract to obtain higher yields of EFAs, essential fatty acids, known as omega 3 and 6. These consist of ETAs eicosatetraenoic acid, EPA eicosapentaenoic acid and DHA docosahexaenoic acid. These 3 characteristics also help in assisting the horses’ well being.
ETAs have recently been characterised to exert a natural anti-inflammatory response (refer to technical data below).
Technyflex® Equine provides a natural alternative and is effective in many Musculo-skeletal conditions affecting the back, neck hock, fetlock, knee and low-grade chronic lameness. Technyflex® Equine is throughout the Equestrian and horse racing industry in Australia, NZ, Singapore and Hong Kong Turf Club. Technyflex® Equine works well for Horses exposed to hot/humid or Cold conditions all year round.
Healthy vs. Unhealthy Joint diagram
Treating your horse with Technyflex®, a high quality joint supplement, will assist in many ways. Administering prior to onset of these conditions is also recommended for increased mobility and as prevention for ageing joints.
“Prevention is better than cure”
Anti-inflammatory Pain Relief
- A natural analgesic (pain reliever)
- Rich source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids
- Soothes stiff joints
By utilising the safe and beneficial COX-1 pathway, omega-3’s (ETA, EPA & DHA) inhibit and in effect block the inflammation pathways known as COX-2 and LIPOX-5.
The Effect of Samples on Neutrophil Superoxide ~ Rate of Inhibition, Anti-inflammatory properties
This Study was completed in vitro and conducted at the Bio-Investigation Group, Wellington School of Medicine and Health Science, University Otago. The test procedure was conducted in accordance with the Bio Activity Investigations Group method, to determine the anti-inflammatory properties of each product. Technyflex® clearly demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory properties.
Technyflex® highlights the significance of a quality product.
Other associated benefits
EPA assists with skin condition, and has been known to support skin permeability, condition and tone. The EPA in our product has been known to assist with Queensland itch (Australia) and provides a true sign that the product is working effectively as the coat of the horse will show a nice shine and also a healthy look, especially if your horse shows signs of a dull or patchy coat.
DHA is known to assist with the general well being. In hot or humid places such as Queensland Australia it helps to regulate body temperature with signs of horses’ being able to work under pressure easier and is not so scratchy.
Our product also has been known to assist with Big head or Queensland head. This may be because of regulation of cell division and maybe known to assist with other Biological functions of eicosanoids such as:
- Regulation of the immune system
- Control of platelet aggregation
- Control of vascular permeability and blood pressure
- Gastric acid secretion, gastrointestinal motility
- Renal blood flow and sodium excretion
- Regulation of neurotransmission and neuromuscular activity
Essential fatty acids Profile
This study was conducted by the Cawthorn Institute, an independent GMP registered laboratory. The test method used: AOAC 18th Edn 963.22. Technyflex® clearly demonstrated a high quality essential fatty acid count.

TECHNYFLEX® EQUINE GEL
Technyflex® Equine Gel is a topical Gel formulated for the use on joints and muscles.
Technyflex® Equine Gel contains advanced cold processed New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel Oil and a blend of essential oils. The mussel oil contains extra high levels of ETAs eicosatetraenoic acid (a natural mobiliser) which is topically applied to the tendon or joint to support joint function.
The essential oils are blended specifically for before and after use on joints and muscles.
Recent independent scientific research has shown that material from Perna canaliculus processed by cold processing techniques, contains recently characterised polyunsaturated fatty acids, eicosatetraenoic acid or ETAs.
ETAs can support joint function and suppleness which explain their efficacy in terms of soothing joints quickly helping to maintain optimum mobility and flexibility.
Cold processed New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel Oil (Perna canaliculus).
Eucalyptus globulus, arnica, wintergreen, black pepper, ginger, manuka, birch oil, and grape seed oil.
The Importance of Nutraceuticals in Equine Rehabilitation – GLM
In the Proliferative Phase of wound healing which occupies some six weeks the injured tissues gain some fifty per cent of their strength. This is obtained by fibroblast cells secreting collagen.
This process is aided by a supply of calcium, phosphorous and magnesium. The presence of Glycoaminoglycans (GAG’s) in GLM (Technyflex) in particular glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate is also required for a satisfactory healing process. Glycoaminoglycans react with collagen and elastin, to maintain the normal structural and functional integrity of the joints, arteries, skin and other tissues.
KALSYTECH® calcium supplement is a microcrystalline marine supplement which contains not only calcium, but also phosphorous, collagen, magnesium and fishbone peptides.
TECHYNFLEX® a GAG’s supplement including vitamins and omega 3 provides anti-inflammatory properties as well as the building blocks for tissue repair.
The simultaneous supplementation with the above two products will enhance the recovery and return to performance fitness of the injured equine athlete.
