Equine America Cortaflex range has been pioneered by equine experts to offer a solution to joint degeneration, damage and ageing. The fortified daily supplement, available in liquid or powder form, can be used to protect joints from everyday wear and tear, either through competing or daily hacking. Chondroitin and Glucosamine are produced naturally by the body and aid the maintenance of the joint tissue. Joint cartilage is not directly connected to any blood vessels so all of the nutrients that the cartilage needs for good health have to be small enough to pass through cellular walls to benefit the joint tissue. Cortaflex was formulated around the theory that small molecules are more likely to be absorbed through cellular walls. Therefore, Cortaflex contains the micro-sized key active isolates of Chondroitin and Glucosamine, providing the body with both the building blocks and the stimulus for its own production of Chondroitin and Glucosamine. The 946ml bottle is used by squeezing the bottle to fill up the measuring section, which makes pouring out the correct amount easy. For an easy way to get the correct feed amount out of 3.8 and 4 litre bottles, see the Equine America Bottle Pump. Currently all Equine America products are suitable for use under FEI and Jockey Club rules. Feeding Directions Why CORTAFLEX? Cortaflex and Hyaluronic Acid Research - Clinical Evidence Additional Information Feeding Directions For an average 500 kg horse, feed 14 grams daily for 10 days with the horse's regular feed. Thereafter, feed 7 grams daily for maintenance. Feed others according to body weight, less for smaller horses and ponies, more for larger breeds. Why CORTAFLEX? Wear and tear to the joints is a normal function and will occur naturally with age, but our domestication of the horse has increased the stresses on the joints, resulting in lameness. Constant pounding on artificial, hard or heavy ground is very demanding on joints – even hacking can cause abnormal wear and tear, metal shoes increase concussion and confinements of stables increases pressure. Feeding a proven joint supplement can help to redress the balance and support healthy joints. Chondroitin and Glucosamine are produced naturally by the body and aid in repair and maintenance of the joint tissue. Joint cartilage is not directly connected to any blood vessels so; all of the nutrients that the cartilage needs for good health have to be small enough to pass through cellular walls to benefit the joint tissue. Cortaflex was formulated around the theory that small molecules are more likely to be absorbed through cellular walls. Therefore, Cortaflex contains the micro sized key active isolates of Chondroitin and Glucosamine, providing the body with both the building blocks and the stimulus for its own production of Chondroitin and Glucosamine. Cortaflex and Hyaluronic Acid Cortaflex is now fortified with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) for even greater benefit to the joints, particularly those that have experienced excessive wear and tear. HA is a major component of synovial fluid, which is essential for providing the joints with lubrication and the cartilage with nutrients. HA has traditionally been derived from type II Collagen sourced from Rooster Comb, which has a high molecular weight of up to six million Daltons. This form of HA has been shown to be very effective when injected but is not considered to achieve a good rate of absorption when taking orally due to the large molecular size. The Hyaluronic Acid used in Cortaflex is of vegetable origin and has a molecular weight of less than 50,000 Daltons. It is believed that this is more readily absorbed, providing Hyaluronic Acid to the joints in a non-invasive way. Research - Clinical Evidence Cortaflex has been clinically tested in a double blind study of equine tarsal joint movement. The rigorous trial was conducted by the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University, one of the leading equine research institutes in the world. Unlike the more subjective research approaches in the majority of equine trials, the study used the most advanced kinetic analysis techniques to objectively and accurately measure the horse’s gait. These techniques, based on video and force plates, unquestionably proved the effects of supplementation. The results were then presented by the author Dr Hilary Clayton BVMS, PhD, MRCVS, to the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP)) and published in the conference proceedings.
