Some supplement opinions- ulcers and joint

So as some of you read, we thought Charlie had a small bout with colic this past weekend. It seems he was misdiagnosed and has ulcers (much better, but still poor Charlie). I'm treating him with UlcerGuard for the next 2 weeks and then I want to put him on a daily supplement to help prevent this from happening again (worst weekend ever- my husband and I rang in the New Years by handwalking him and on the phone with the vet). Does anyone have anything to say about the U-Guard powder? Many of the reviews on SmartPakEquine say to get the pellets because the powder is so fine it's dusty and sticks to everything, but his feed will be soaked all winter (he tends to stop drinking as much in winter), so that's not a problem. If anyone has anything else they've tried, please share!

Also, he's 13 and during the winter he tends to creak quite a bit when I first pull him out of the pasture. He lives in the pasture so he's moving around (can't stall this horse, he goes nuts) and I take my time warming him up before we do any real riding, but I was thinking about putting him on a joint supplement as well. Just for the winter- when it's warm he doesn't have those issues. I was looking at the SmartFlex 1 Maintenance pellets because during the winter he's pretty much in light work since it's rare that I can ride during the week since the days are so short.

I appreciate any opinions!

UlcerGuard is the only product I've used for ulcers always found it works.

For joints I use technyflex which is technically an arthritis supplement but works well on injuries etc.

I use ulc-r-aid for my horse and I find it works very well. I get it from horse.com but that is not the only place they sell it, I just found them to be the cheapest after factoring in horse.com's low shipping costs.

I use to use TractGard for ulcers for my TB, however, I recently switched all my horses to SmartCombo because of all the other benefits it gives and I think it works just as well.
It's a supplement for digestion, coat, hooves, and joints.
