|A Scientific Overview of… Chondroitin Sulfate
Powerful Natural Support for Joints and Bones
Found Throughout Nature
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is one of six related substances called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are also referred to as mucopolysaccharides. GAGs occur widely throughout the animal kingdom — in vertebrates and invertebrates, terrestrial and marine organisms, and mammals and non-mammals. Six kinds of GAGs have been found in the tissues and fluids of vertebrates: chondroitin sulfates, keratin sulfates, dermatin sulfates, hyaluronic acid, heparin, and heparin sulfate.
Found in Connective Tissue
CS is widely found in the connective tissues of animals. It occurs in three slightly different forms: CSA, CSB, and CSC. CSA and CSC are found in nasal and tracheal cartilage, articular cartilage (joints), bones, sclera, leukocytes and blood platelets, skin, and umbilical cords. CSB has been found in skin, umbilical cords, and cardiac valves.
Vital for Joint Function
Adequate amounts of CS are vital for normal joint function and maintenance as well as many other self-healing mechanisms. The following list of activities have been proven in numerous scientific studies.
1. Osteogenesis: CSA is an important participant in bone calcification and CSC in bone integrity maintenance (Paroli, 1991; Maurau, 1988).*
2. Analgesic and restorative effect: A very important property of CS is its ability to stimulate the chondrocite (cell that synthesizes the proteoglycans in the articular cartilage), which is conducive to the proper maintenance of the cartilage matrix (Serni, 1991; Vacha, 1994).*
3. Enzymatic inhibition: The capacity of CS to inhibit the action of destructive enzymes of the articular cartilage protects joints and helps maintain harmonic balance of healthy enzyme activity. This in turn helps avoid degradation of hyaluronic acid, a necessary molecule for the maintenance of hydration and viscosity of synovial fluid (Avila, 1976; Marossy, 1981; Pipitone, 1991; Videla Dorna et al., 1994).*
4. Anti-inflammatory effect: (Paroli, 1991; Pipitone, 1991; Rashmir-Raven, 1992).*
Beau loves to run laps in the arena.
34 Year Old Thoroughbred "...still loves to run."
Love your products. My 34 year old Thoroughbred gelding, Beau, and I have been using your wonderful products for almost 20 years now. I have two herniated disks in my back that have bothered me since 1973. I had taken Cartilage Concentrate* for a week when it dawned on me that I no longer had any pain while riding. I was amazed!
During Beau's racing day, he injured his back when he flipped over in the starting gate. There were many days when he couldn't be ridden because of his sore back. After starting him on J-Flex Concentrate we never missed a day because of his back. He still had a "cold back" but within a 15 minute walk warm-up he was ready to do our dressage work. Beau was diagnosed with Cushing's disease 16 years ago. With his daily dose of medications and J-Flex Concentrate he has never had laminitis or joint problems. At 34, he still enjoys galloping around the arena. He's amazing to watch as he does his laps. He still loves to run.
Thank you for helping make Beau pain-free during his senior years.
God bless you,

18 year old Jack is still competitive for Kate.
"WOW! …I was amazed… He ran better and wasn't stiff anymore."
My name is Kate Bacon. I'm 16 years old and ride an 18 year old Thoroughbred/Appy gelding named Jack. When I was 12, I decided that I wanted to begin a career in rodeo. After just one fall of rodeos nearly every weekend, Jack was stiff and sore after each long ride to and from the rodeo. My mom and I thought that this was natural because of his hard life as a ranch horse and his old age (16-17 years old at the time). Then a friend told my mom about J-Flex Concentrate . We thought it was worth a try. WOW! We started Jack on J-Flex Concentrate late in winter. I was amazed at the difference in him. He ran better and wasn't stiff anymore.
Jack is 18 years going on 19 now and we are still running competitive barrels and poles. He looks great and is healthy and happy. He will be my official mount this summer as I am the queen of the local rodeo court. Thank you so much for developing a product that is so wonderful.

Best buddies, Quacker and Emilie.
Foundered Horse "...he made an amazing recovery on J-Flex!!"
I just want to take the time to thank you for your amazing products. I have attached a photo of Quacker, my 14 year old half Tennessee walking horse. Quacker foundered five years ago. Bute did not help much and all the vet offered was to put him down because at one point he was in too much pain to even get up. I was ready to make that painful decision, but then I read some of the good success stories in your catalog about J-Flex Concentrate. So I decided it couldn't hurt to at least give it a try. He made an amazing recovery on J-Flex Concentrate! Now he is back to being the good, sound riding horse he used to be. He's full of life and spirit and loves to run. Thank you so much Springtime for giving me my horse back!!

Norman Still a Miracle Seven Years After Shattered Bone Recovery
I just wanted to send you a quick email to update you on my horse, Norman, who you featured in your sales catalog a few years ago (Spring 2001). So, here he is today. February 14, 2007 will be seven years since his injury (shattered bone in his knee, used J-Flex Concentrate to help recovery). I don't ride Norman since his knee fused; he just enjoys doing tricks. I am teaching him to pick up a phone and hand it to me. He is 21 this year…Norman is a miracle! I also have my Hunter on a combination of J-Flex Concentrate and Springtime GL. This keeps him sound and happy. We are still jumping around courses and winning…
Thanks for making such great products!
