The Natural Health World Cortaflex Buyers Guide


What is Cortaflex?

Cortaflex is a revolutionary new generation of natural dietary supplement designed to help maintain your Joints. The unique Cortaflex formula is available in 3 different varieties - Human Cortaflex, Canine & Feline Cortaflex and Equine Cortaflex.


The science behind Cortaflex - what makes Cortaflex different?

Originally designed for the Race Horse (Equine) and Dog Breeding (Canine) market, the unique Cortaflex formula was then developed on the back of this success into a Human variety. We all know that Glucosamine and Chondroitin are key components to keep Joints strong and healthy and that when Joint problems occur, it is often a lack of these two key nutrients. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are large molecules and so are often difficult to absorb within the body, particularly after prolonged use. Cortaflex avoids all the absorption problems of Glucosamine and Chondroitin by using the isolates of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. This is where Cortaflex can help.

Cortaflex is different from normal Glucosamine and Chondroitin tablets as it is formulated from the smaller key refined pharmaceutical-grade isolates, amino acids and co-enzymes, that make up Glucosamine and Chondroitin, for example Glutamine, Glutamic Acid, Glucuronic Acid, Glycine and Proline. These smaller molecules are more easily absorbed into the blood stream, resulting in more of the nutrients getting to the required area, which makes it more effective. The Cortaflex nutrients also help to balance your body to keep Joints well maintained.


Different Cortaflex Formulas - Human Cortaflex, Canine Cortaflex and Equine Cortaflex

There are 3 different varieties of Cortaflex; Human Cortaflex for People, Canine Cortaflex for Cats and Dogs and Equine Cortaflex for Horses. Each of the 3 different varieties are specifically designed for the individual breed and users should only take the variety for themselves or their pet.

Human Cortaflex is available in 2 strengths - Human Cortaflex and Human Cortaflex HA both in capsule form. Human Cortaflex HA contains 400mg of active ingredients together with Hyaluronic Acid (a key component to healthy synovial fluid within the Joint) whilst Human Cortaflex offers a maintenance level of 200mg of active ingredients in an easy to swallow cellulose capsule.

Canine Cortaflex is available in three different formulas - Canine Cortaflex Capsules, Canine Cortaflex Powder & Canine Cortaflex Joint Care Powder and Canine Cortaflex Solution, making it easy to administer either directly by the capsule or by mixing into the food with the Powders or Solution.

Equine Cortaflex is available for working and non-working horses alike, which is available in either a Solution or Powder formula for easy mixing into food.


What is the difference between Human Cortaflex and Human Cortaflex HA Capsules?

Human Cortaflex contains 200mg of active ingredients in the capsules in comparison to Human Cortaflex HA which contains 400mg of active ingredient. Human Cortaflex is normally used for those wishing to maintain their current level of joints and the more potent Cortaflex HA is normally used by those with more severe joint issues.


How many Human Cortaflex Capsules should I take?

The suggested intake is 1 capsule per day - for Human Cortaflex users this equates to 200mg of active ingredients and for Human Cortaflex HA users this equates to 400mg of active ingredients a day. We suggest initially taking 2 capsules per day for the first 2 weeks which allows more of the Cortaflex supplement to be absorbed by your system allowing for quick results. We suggest taking the Cortaflex capsules at opposite ends of the day to provide a constant release of the supplement in your body throughout the day.


What is Hyaluronic Acid and why is it in Cortaflex HA?

Hyaluronic Acid is a key component of synovial fluid and is found in the synovium layer around the joints and in cartilage. It is a glycosaminoglycan with anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematose properties. It is also found in the vitreous humor of the eye and the subcutaneous layer of the skin, and has been sighted as having major anti-ageing properties particularly with the joints and skin. In osteoarthritis changes found in the Hyaluronic Acid in the cartilage lead to a degeneration of the cartilage. Replacing the Hyaluronic Acid improves the quality of the synovial fluid and cartilage to keep the joints healthy and because of these huge benefits Cortaflex HA is fortified with Hyaluronic Acid.


How long do I take Cortaflex for?

Cortaflex is a natural nutritional dietary supplement with no known side effects; it can be taken with or without food and at any time of the day. It can be taken for unlimited periods, can be stopped and started at any time as well as being able to be taken alongside prescription medications due to its natural content. However, we strongly recommend that if you have any underlying medical condition that you contact your GP to discuss taking Cortaflex alongside any regular medication.
