Why use a topical joint relief emulgel?
Unlike oral joint supplements that often require a period of taking a loading dose to make an effect, this topical ointment provides rapid relief and for a lower price than most of the nutraceutical joint support products available.
A topical gel, ointment or emulgel is rubbed onto the skin of the horse in the area where the horse is showing signs of stiffness or discomfort.
A 500ml bottle of FLAMEZZE-EQ is a great tack box essential, ideal for keeping on the yard and in the show lorry. The product has been specially designed for use pre & post intense exercise or competition as its cooling effect soothes and revitalises joints, muscles & tendons.
This product was first produced by TRM (Thoroughbred Remedies Manufacturing) in association with the Hong Kong Jockey Club, a world leader in the provision of horse racing. The nature of the sport dictated that any product used on racehorses must be free from any prohibited substances. Therefore, unlike many cooling emulgels that contain banned substances, FLAMEZZE-EQ is race and competition safe, even if the horse licks it off its skin. This is particularly important in racing as in the past horses have been banned from the sport due to inadvertently consuming prohibited substances by licking the product off their legs. Nevertheless, please note, that it is advised that no topical or nutraceutical supplement should be used on the day of racing or before competition. We always recommend you check the rules of your specific governing body.
How does FLAMEZZE-EQ work?
The benefits of FLAMEZZE-EQ are twofold. Not only does the formula actively work to revitalise and soothe overworked joints, tendons, and muscles, but regular massage through the application of the product helps alleviate stiffness and soreness while also helping to reduce inflammation.
