One extraordinary man from Aiken, South Carolina, USA who had a passion for equine health.

Over the last 40 years, Bruce Snipes has pioneered the development of food supplements for horses, including the 1st 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 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 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.

The Science behind our Products
Chondroitin & Glucosamine
Chondroitin & Glucosamine are produced naturallyby 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
Cortaflex was formulated around the theory that small molecules are more likely to be absorbed through cellular walls. 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.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Cortaflex is now fortified with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 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.
Vegetable Origins
The Hyaluronic Acid 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 Hyaluronic Acid to the joints in a non-invasive way.
