Disappointed With Your Joint Tablets? The Truth About The Effectiveness Of Glucosamine & Chondroitin

In this day and age we all lead busy lives at work and at home. This type of lifestyle can involve physical activity in many forms, whether you regularly work out at the gym, run around after children or have a physically demanding job.

From a very early age we put a great deal of stress onto the joints – as children playing sports, climbing trees and encountering the odd fall. Eventually, an active lifestyle and the aging process leads to wear and tear on the whole body and can be particularly noticeable in the joints.

It’s a fact of life that as we get older our joints and spine (spinal joints – known as facet joints) are more likely to suffer aches and pains. In the UK it’s estimated that around eight million people have some form of Arthritis and that one in three people will suffer with arthritis at some point in their lives.

Did you know there are actually around 200 different kinds of arthritis, which means inflammation of the joints and spinal joints, with the most common being osteoarthritis. Other types are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, cervical spondylosis and gout.

The articulating surfaces of the bones (the ends of the bones that form the joint) are covered in articular cartilage and are bathed in Synovial Fluid – call it “joint oil”. In a normal healthy joint the articular cartilage is smooth and the synovial fluid is of sufficient high quality to provide adequate lubrication.

Unfortunately as we get older this lubrication becomes less efficient, therefore the aiding of everyday mobility and smooth working of joint cartilage, tendons and ligaments lessens.

Glucosamine and Chondroitine are presently a much hyped dietary product to help our joints and spine with the above mentioned issues…

…Unfortunately it is NOT as effective as it is made out to be.

Research has shown that Glucosamine & Chondroitin Sulphate have a large and complex molecular structure – too large to pass easily through the small pores in the capillary walls. This means that the substance can’t be absorbed properly and therefore does not get to where it’s needed most, the joints and spine. It stays in the blood only to be filtered out by the body’s waste system! (the latest research has shown that only 21/2 % is absorbed through the gut)

Ever wondered why you have been told it will take up to 2-3 months before you feel the benefit?! …Now you know why.


Cortaflex has been formulated around the concept that smaller molecules are more likely to be absorbed than larger ones. Therefore, Cortaflex contains the smaller key active isolates of Chondroitin and Glucosamine – Glutamine, Glucuronic Acid, Glutamic Acid, Proline, and Glycine – which must not be confused or compared with the much larger Chondroitin and Glucosamine molecules.

From research and personal experience and the ChesterPhysio Clinic patients that have tried it, Cortaflex is definitely much more effective then Glucosamine and Chondroitine and also it won’t take 2-3 months to feel the benefits, it is suggested it only takes 7 days to start to see the benefit.


Basically ANYBODY does – people young, old, active & inactive DO!

If you are active in sport, have a strengtheous manual job etcetera you may want to minimize the effects of the stresses placed on your joints and spine in the short term and in the long term avoid excess wear and tear changes.

You may already have painful joints or have arthritis and you wish fast and effective relief from the pain, without the horrendous side effects of medication like steroids (which is commonly prescribed for arthritis and painful joints & spine).

CORTAFLEX CAPSULES WITH HA Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a major component of joint lubricating fluid. Cortaflex HA capsules combine all of the amazing benefits of Cortaflex with an oral form of Hyaluronic Acid. Cortaflex HA capsules can be taken to boost the regular Cortaflex programme IF YOU HAVE PAINFUL JOINTS OR ARTHRITIS, or permanently for those joints that experience EXCESSIVE WEAR AND TEAR

If you wish to invest in the long term health of your joints and spine then Cortaflex is at the moment the best product for this on the market.

I use the word investment and not cost as it is an investment in the short and long term health of your joints and spine.
