REXFLO is formulated to help maintain a healthy circulatory system and is about optimum levels of
lymph reaching the cells and waste products draining from the cells and flowing out to be efficiently
eliminated thus helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Whilst the essential features of the digestive system of the Equine are the same as that of all
mammals, evolution has imposed a number of features upon it that are unique to the species. Such
features call for a greater reliance on the horse’s liver and pancreas to help maintain a clean and
clear digestive and lymphatic system upon on which it so much depends.
Include REXFLO every day with the regular bucket feed to help maintain freedom from the following
common problems which originate from the occurrence of a than optimum digestive processes
Low grade lameness
The development of subcutaneous waste deposits (fat pads)
Circulatory disorders in the feet
General enfeeblement of body and spirit
Possible non-specific digestive problems
Feed when necessary as a follow on from L94 may also be fed with H29 and Setback Salts
The formula is devoid of any really harmful side effects however the following may occur –
1. Urination routine may well be upset and initially be more frequent
2. Blood fats will increase initially but then fall.
MAIN ACTION OF ASSISTANCE
Cholagogue – increases bile production by up to 60 %
Assists digestion of fats
Reduces levels of fats in the blood
Aids cell metabolism
Circulatory stimulant & peripheral vasodilation.
Notes on Itching – Itching is a symptom of many conditions. The underlying cause of
generalised itching can often be due to less that optimum Liver and Pancreatic function including
a lowering of immune responses to candida albicans and other virulent fungal infections.
Itching is the effort of the central nervous system to move a deeper disturbance towards the
skin where irritation may well be distressing but where it is least damaging.
General notes – Lymph convey to the blood the final products of digestion and receives from the
blood waste products of metabolism. Lymph fluid loaded with waste, excess protein etc is
sucked into the lymph tubes to be filtered by the spleen and lymph nodes. A number of
disorders arise when the fluid in overburdened by toxaemia, out of solution minerals etc. Poor
drainage and enlarged nodes (glands) with un-eliminated waste slows down the flow extending
the time (dwell time) that toxins remain in contact with tissue doing exponential damage. It is
often said that If the lymph is circulating freely it is almost impossible for horses to become sick.
The lymphatic system is even capable of building up an immunity to further infections but on the
other hand lymphatic torpidity can be the very start of illness and susceptibility to disease from
being “off Form” to being in constant poor health and immobile. REXFLO helps maintain
lymphatic tempo, pH changes can quickly encourage waste oxides travelling back for eventual
elimination to come out of solution and begin the first processes of calcification (like the drip
from the top of a cave forming a stalagmite on the floor) constricting capillaries and forming
cellulite deposits (fat pads) that in turn cause further dams to the circulation.
REXFLO supports vital liver function and most importantly it is an excellent cholagogue that
gently increases both the concentration and the secretion of Bilirubin in the duodenum it helps
stimulate pancreatic enzymes and the digestive system in general. Since the horse has no gall
bladder and therefore no reserves of bile it is directly dependant on its actual hepatic output day
and night. This dependency makes the horse less tolerant of undulations in liver function than
other animals. Other factors also serve to make the Equine a hepatically complicated animal,
besides Equines living much longer than other creatures and their bile being different, when
mature their liver capacity is smaller in proportion to their size than other mammals.
Rexflo contains a large amount of extraordinary therapeutic substances known as flavonoids and
is able to protect the liver and the horse against poisons in three primary ways.
FIRSTLY by acting on the cell membrane of the liver and probably most other cells of the horse’s
body by stabilising and strengthening by actively competing for the cell membrane structure so
that toxins are unable to affect cell membranes in its presence allowing regeneration of the liver
cells to take place.
SECONDLY by a further hepatoprotective mechanism of action involving the enterohepatic
circuit. The Equine has no intermediate reserve of bile so there is an immediacy between the
liver and the the production of bile, the greenish-yellow alkaline substance secreted by the liver
which emulsifies and prevents putrefaction in the intestines and aid pancreatic function. The
enterohepatic circuit is old bile returning to the liver loaded with impurities and waste for
detoxification being exchanged for fresh new bile. Rexflo plays a vital role in helping maintain
and rejuvenate this action as it is a particularly effective cholagogue increasing the production
and volume of bile flow by as much as four times normal in a 12 hour period. Poor liver function
and bile deficiency in both amount and concentration means poisons, pollutants, and drug
residues not being exchanged properly and except for some biliary excretion simply moving
backwards and forwards increasing the amount of liver damage on each pass, this is known as
the Ping Pong effect the latter word being a clue to it occurring. Toxicity produced through the
enterohepatic circuit usually takes considerable time to develop, the larger and heavier the
organism the longer it takes to produce toxicity. Rexflo when fed firstly interrupts the primary
absorption of toxins then helps prevent their reabsorption due to enterohepatic circulation.
Cells that are not yet contaminated are protected from circulating toxins and act as centres for
the generation of new liver cells. With time, complete restoration of the liver is possible.
THIRDLY Rexflo also helps the regeneration of destroyed liver tissue by stimulating cellular
protein synthesis and subsequently new cells can be built and nourished.
Although the liver already possesses the ability to regenerate itself its capacity to do so is slowed
by certain toxic substances, viruses, fatty degeneration and age Rexflo encourages the
regeneration of cells destroyed during both normal detoxification process and the deleterious
effects of air, water and food-borne toxins.
REXFLO is a cellular regenerator, peripheral vasodilator improving the strength and tone of
capillaries, elasticity of the walls of blood vessels and opening up surface areas enabling more
blood to be circulated to assist tissue build up and tissue strength. REXFLO helps elevate white
cell production and liver glycogen reserves essential for red cell manufacture and for tissues
dependant on sufficient liver glycogen presence.
Swellings and Low grade lameness can often be due to less than optimum circulation to the feet.
Nutrients and oxygen destined for the feet fail to fully reach certain areas causing tissue to
become poor and necrotic developing an arterial shunt where the area is partially avoided and
the blood finds another way back to the heart. These starved areas become weak with transient
low levels of vasculitis and Lymphangitis occurring resulting in tenderness and pain when weight
bearing on hard or stony ground, in turn concussion causes more inflammation and greater
obstruction of nutrients and elimination of metabolites.
