Joint Suppliment Comparison?
This just must be my week of questions on suppliments!
As I am ordering some Smart Breathe for my gelding on Smartpak, I started comparing his joint suppliment to see if I could package then two supps together through SmartPak.
He is currently on Corta-flx powder, but SmartPak's SmartFlex-1 Maintenance has got me thinking. It contains MSM and Glucosamine with more Vitamic C than Corta-flx does, which doesn't contain Glucosamine or MSM at all. SmartPak's Maintenance also contains none of the fillers that Corta-flx does (like added Glutamine, Manganese, copper, sulfer, and even Collagen).
So what works? All the added stuff or the high Glucosamine? I have been using SmartPak's comparison tool, but they are on total opposite sides of the spectrum. Could someone tell me what the actual active ingredients are and point me in the right direction? I don't want to pull him off one for the other if it doesnt make a difference.
Also, do I have to do a loading does or wean him off one for the other in the event I do switch?
