What is NANOFLEX™?

NANOFLEX - Joint Support

NANOFLEX is a non-invasive topical joint support product. NANOFLEX acts quickly to help restore joint flexibility, mobility, and range of motion.

Using biolubrication and nanotechnology, NANOFLEX gives joints relief from friction, rubbing, stiffness, and restrictions. Biolubrication and nanotechnology combine to lubricate joints, allowing your horse, dog, or cat to move freely and easily.

How Does NANOFLEX Work?

NANOFLEX works by providing enhanced biolubrication inside the joint capsule and protecting the cartilage surface.

NANOFLEX is a gel that when applied to an affected joint, acts to restore lubrication in the joint. This biolubrication process provides a “slippery” surface ensuring when the joint is compressed, the two cartilages surfaces can move freely.

Who is NANOFLEX For?

NANOFLEX is for horses, dogs, and cats who are struggling with joint issues and restrictions.

This non-invasive topical gel is ideal for senior horses, dogs, and cats who need extra joint support as they age, and their normal joint function starts to degrade.

Horses, in particular, through their various competitive disciplines, are subjected to repeated high stress movements on their joints and this can result in accelerated changes to their joint function and health.

What Makes NANOFLEX Different?

NANOFLEX is different from other joint products due to its technology and non-invasive restorative action:

  • NANOFLEX is topical and made of Ultra Deformable Vesicle SequessomesTM (UDVS). UDVSs are specially engineered fatty lipids, that with nanotechnology, change their shape to penetrate the skin and synovial membrane of the joint where NANOFLEX is applied.
  • Once inside the joint capsule, millions of UDVSs give the joint’s cartilage surface a new source of biolubrication. This creates a slippery surface when the joint is compressed, helping the joint move freely with increased flexibility and mobility.

How Do I Apply NANOFLEX to My Horse, Dog, or Cat?

To apply NANOFLEX to your horse, do the following twice a day:

  1. Depress the NANOFLEX dispenser pump fully or partially (depending on the joint size) once into your hand.
  2. Apply NANOFLEX by lightly spreading the gel around the joint.
  3. Do not rub NANOFLEX into the skin.
  4. Wait 15 minutes, wash the area around the joint to remove any residue. If the NANOFLEX has not dried after 15 minutes, you have used too much and should reduce the amount you apply next time.

Hint: more is not better!

To apply NANOFLEX to your cat or dog, do the following twice a day:

  1. Depress the NANOFLEX dispenser pump to lay a 1-1.5-inch-long ribbon for dogs or .5 inch for cats on your finger.
  2. Apply NANOFLEX by lightly spreading the gel around the joint.
  3. Do not rub NANOFLEX in.
  4. Wait 15 minutes, wash the area around the joint to remove any residue. If the NANOFLEX has not dried after 15 minutes, you have used too much and should reduce the amount you apply next time.

What are Horse Trainers, Owners, and Riders Saying About NANOFLEX?

“I have been lucky enough to get to try out NANOFLEX before it hit the shelves, so to speak! This product is incredible! I have a few older horses with metabolic disorders that prevent them from having joint injections but still need some sort of maintenance. NANOFLEX has been a game changer! Simply apply a small amount to the affected joint and in a few short days, the results are noticeable. I love that this product is drug-free and can be used in and out of competition!”

Dani Sussman Owner/Trainer Aspire Eventing, Larkspur, CO

“I was recently discussing with my doctors to have my sacroiliac injected because of chronic issues. I had the appointment scheduled when Nick from Grand Meadows called me and asked me about doing a trial on NANOFLEX. I was keen to see if such a product would work as a way to perhaps stop my needing my sacroiliac injected. Well, since using NANOFLEX on myself, I have canceled my appointment. I haven’t used it on my horses because I am hoarding it for me. I love it!”

“I can’t wait for this product to launch so I can get more for my horses”

Robyn Fisher Trainer R Farms, Moor Park, CA

“We have been using Grand Meadows nutritional supplements for about 2 years and have had great success with the products. All of our horses are on Grand Premium Plus an all-around supplement and we have seen incredible results! When their new product, NANOFLEX, was brought to us for a trial we were very excited to try it. I have tried it on my own horse and I even use it myself. My horse, a 13-year-old Hanoverian, has done the jumpers, equitation, and everything in between. He is a horse who needs consistent maintenance and has historically required days off due to soreness. Within a week of using NANOFLEX on his coffins he was way more consistent and so much happier!

As horseback riders our bodies go through a lot. Sore and achy is a regular occurrence. Recently, I have been having trouble with my shoulder and lower back. Within a few days of using NANOFLEX I found relief- my joints weren’t cracking as much, and I wasn’t constantly in pain. I love the Grand Meadows products and highly recommend them for horses and the riders who love them.”

In 1994, Nick Hartog became an owner and President of Grand Meadows Equine Supplements bringing his talents and extensive background in domestic and international equine sales and manufacturing. He has a reputation for plain speaking of the truth. In 1997, when the US horse supplement market was something akin to the Wild West with a complete lack of standards, Nick personally tested 32 different horse joint supplements to see if they matched the label. Unsurprisingly, to him at least, only 2 products matched the label claim. Read more...
