Cortaflex® HA Super Fenn Solution provides powerful joint support through a unique blend of collagen, amino acids, hyaluronic acid (HA) and trace elements, and it is particularly beneficial for use on competition and race horses, and older horses with significant levels of wear and tear on their joints.
As the joints in performance horses are subjected to extreme forces during both training and competition, the cartilage and joint fluid are the hardest hit and commonly show the first signs of wear and tear. Cartilage is a spongy ad elastic material which covers the ends of the bones within the joint, and acts as a shock absorber while reducing friction. Joint (synovial) fluid is a thick and viscous substance, which also helps as a shock absorber as well as lubricating the joint.
The special blend of ingredients used in Cortaflex® HA Super Fenn provide the building blocks to help maintain healthy joint fluid and to aid in the repair process through the specialised cells in the cartilage.
Collagen is needed to produce the structural framework of the cartilage in the joint to help to give it strength and elasticity. The Collagen used is an ethically sourced and sustainable form of marine collagen.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is an important addition to maintain the viscosity of the joint fluid, to lubricate and act as shock absorber.
Amino Acids provide the building blocks for the production of amino sugars including glucosamine. Glucosamine is a structural subunit in the production of other Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) which bind to the collagen and help maintain string and functional cartilage.
Manganese, silicone and copper are 3 of the key trace minerals included, all of which play an important role on the production of structural compounds such as chondroitin, in addition to the production of collagen and HA.
MSM provides a bioavailable source of sulphur to support the bonds in the cartilage, and Boswellia and Yucca provide important antioxidants to support joint health and maintain a normal inflammatory response.
Cortaflex® HA Super Fenn is BETA NOPS and UFAS accredited, meaning it is certified to contain no prohibited substances and therefore are suitable for use on horses competion under FEI regulation and the Rules of Racing.
