How Cortaflex Works
Cortaflex with Hyaluronic Acid HA has been specially formulated for horses with joints that have experienced excessive wear and tear and for horses which are competing or in hard work. Fortified with ASU & Silicon for even more joint protection
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 reduced mobility. 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. In these circumstances feeding a proven joint supplement can help to support healthy joints.
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.
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 received internally but is not considered to achieve a good rate of absorption when taken 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.

Equine America Message
Equine America are pleased to announce that we are certified members of the following Quality Assurance Schemes:
By complying with these externally audited schemes, we demonstrate our commitment to providing top quality equine feed for our customers.
What is UFAS & BETA NOPS?
To the consumer, UFAS accreditation means:
1. Full traceability of ingredients - from the packaged product right back to buying in the raw materials.
Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) can occur in feed or supplements as a result of a natural presence or inadvertent cross-contamination during processing. All substances classed as NOPS are included in a defined list and featured in the BETA NOPS quality assurance schemes. Companies audited under these schemes work to defined standards to help reduce the risk of feed contamination by NOPS. Companies signed up to the BETA NOPS scheme can make horse feed only on a dedicated non-medicated production line in order to reduce the risk of cross-contamination http://www.beta-uk.org/pages/feed-safety/beta-nops-scheme.php
