• How Cortaflex Works
Cortaflex was formulated around the theory that small molecules are more likely to be absorbed through cellular walls. 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.
Chondroitin & Glucosamine
Chondroitin & Glucosamine are produced naturally by the body. They 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 requires for good health, have to be small enough to pass through cellular walls to benefit the joint tissue.
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.
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.
