THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PRODUCT
What Makes Cortaflex Different To Other Joint Supplement?
Cortaflex is the next generation of Natural health care for joints in Horses, Cats, Dogs and even Humans. Cortaflex is a supplement that provides both the stimulus and the building blocks for natural joint health.
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 smaller molecules are more likely to be absorbed through cellular walls than larger ones. 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.
More recently, as well as providing these vital building blocks, MSM (methylsulphonylmethane ) has been added to the Cortaflex supplements, to provide a bio-available source of sulphur, which is important in the repair process of the sulphur containing bonds in the cartilage matrix. MSM is also thought to have anti-inflammatory properties. Cortaflex Super Fenn also contains Boswellia, a plant known for its anti-inflammatory properties, to help reduce the on-going destruction of cartilage following micro-trauma and the resulting inflammatory responses arising from harder work.
College Of Veterinary Medicine Michigan State University
Cortaflex is the only equine joint supplement to have been clinically proven 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 horses 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.
NB: Due to rules and regulations within New Zealand, Cortaflex NZ Limited are unable to provide the Scientific Study report presented by Dr Hilary Clayton BVMS, PhD, MRCVS, to the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).
