Equine America Cortaflex Regular Solution 946ml
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 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 in 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 kep 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 & Hyaluronic Acid
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.
The HA used in Cortaflex is of vegetable origin and has a low molecular weight. It is believed that this is more readily absorbed, providing HA to the joints in a non-invasive way.
