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 created Cortaflex
, which is now the number one product for joint supplementation
Cortaflex HA for horses
is now used by leading riders and trainers across the world and in all equine disciplines, and was successfully tested by the Veterinary Medical Research Centre at Michigan State University in a double blind clinical trial.
In addition to Equine America 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.
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 ha
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.
