Equine America Cortaflex Ha Super Fenn Solution: 1 Litre
Equine America Cortaflex Ha Super Fen Solution 1 Litre
Cortaflex® HA Super Strength now with the addition of Super Fenn a natural anti-inflamatory. Specially formulated for competition horses or those in high work loads as used by the City of London Police and for those with excessive wear and tear to their joints.
CLINICALLY TESTED - 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 many equine trials, the study used advanced kinetic analysis techniques to objectively and accurately measure the horse’s gait. These techniques, based on video and force plates, unquestionably demonstrated 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.
Since the double blind study, HA & Silicon have been added to the formulation, these ingredients reflect more recent research in the support of equine joint comfort and mobility.
HA has been added 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 taken orally due to the large molecular size. The HA 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 HA to the joints in a non-invasive way.
Facts about joint cartilage - joint cartilage is not directly connected to any blood vessels so all 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 FOR HEALTHY JOINTS - Constant pounding on artificial, hard or heavy ground is very demanding on the horses or pony’s joints; even hacking can cause abnormal wear and tear. Feeding a proven joint supplement can help to redress the balance and support healthy joint function. Cortaflex® was formulated around the story that small molecules are likely to be absorbed through cellular walls. 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 SOTRY OF EQUINE AMERICA - Equine America is the story of one extraordinary man BRUCE SNIPES from Aiken, South Carolina, USA . Over the last forty years, Bruce has pioneered the development of food supplementation for horses, including the first use of electrolytes and of biotin for hooves. In recent years, he formulated Cortaflex®, which is now the number one product for joint supplementation. Cortaflex® is now used by leading riders and trainers across the world and in all equine disciplines, and was tested by the Veterinary Medical Research Centre at Michigan State University in a double blind clinical trial. In addition to Cortaflex®, a full range of highly effective products for horses, dogs, cats and people have been developed since Equine America was launched in 1997. All are produced using high quality ingredients and comply with the regulations administered by the UK Veterinary Medicines Directorate and the Food Standards Agency.
Equine America products have been produced to provide nutritional support for health and performance, and to aid in combating the stress of domestic or working life. When using Equine America products it is recommended that individual competition rules are checked in respect of permitted administration at the event.
