Ein außergewöhnlicher Mann aus dem US-amerikanischen Aiken in South Carolina, dessen Herz für die Gesundheit von Pferden schlug.

In den letzten 40 Jahren hat Bruce an der Entwicklung von Nahrungsergänzungsmitteln für Pferde gearbeitet. Er war der erste, der Elektrolyte gefüttert und Biotin zur Hufpflege eingesetzt hat. In den letzten Jahren hat er Cortaflex entwickelt – mittlerweile ein Renner zur Nährstoffversorgung der Gelenke.

Cortaflex wird heute von führenden Reitern und Trainern aller Pferdesportarten auf der ganzen Welt verwendet und wurde vom Veterinary Medical Research Centre der Michigan State University in einer klinischen Doppelblindstudie getestet – mit positiven Ergebnissen.

Seit der Gründung im Jahre 1997 hat Equine America neben Cortaflex® eine große Auswahl an effektiven Produkten für Pferde, Hunde, Katzen und Menschen entwickelt. Sämtliche Produkte werden mit hochwertigen Zutaten hergestellt und erfüllen die Bestimmungen des Amtes für Veterinärmedizin (Veterinary Medicines Directorate) und der Agentur für Lebensmittelstandards (Food Standards Agency), die beide im Vereinigten Königreich ansässig sind.

The Science behind our Products
Cortaflex
Cortaflex includes vital trace elements and precursors (or building blocks) of key compounds such as glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans which are necessary for the production and maintenance of healthy cartilage and joint fluid, which also plays an important role in shock absorbing and lubrication within the joint.
Amino Acids
Amino acids such as glutamic acid - converted in the horse’s body to provide glutamine, which combines with glucose to form glucosamine – which itself then combines with other compounds to help give cartilage its flexibility and “sponginess”.
Copper, Manganese & Silicon
Are important trace elements which are all needed to help the horse produce his own chondroitin, (another important structural compound in cartilage), collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Collagen
An important compound needed by the chondrocytes to produce the water based matrix of the cartilage. Collagen helps to give cartilage its strength. (We utilize a sustainable and ethical source of marine derived collagen.)
Hyaluronic acid (HA)
Is a key component of joint fluid, which bathes the joint, and acts and a lubricant and shock absorber.

Recent Additions

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.
