Glyco-Flex Stage 3 Feline Chews - Glucosamine Supplement for Cats with Advanced Joint Dysfunction.
Glyco-Flex supplements contain the highest quality form of glucosamine. Glucosamine is present in all living animals, with a high concentration found in cartilage. As an animal ages, or when there is damage to cartilage, they often aren't able to synthesize enough of their own glucosamine, that is when a glucosamine supplement can help.
Each bag contains 60 chews.
Active Ingredients Per 2 Gyco-Flex III Soft Chews:
Glucosamine HCl (from shrimp and crab) - 250 mg
Glucosamine stimulates the secretion of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), one of the building blocks of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in joints. GAGs increase the lubrication of the joints and provide flexibility and elasticity to the cartilage.
Perna Canaliculus (Green Lipped Mussel) - 300 mg
Perna canaliculus, or green-lipped mussel, is an edible shellfish containing protein, minerals, glucosamine and Eicosatetraenoic acids (ETAs). ETAs are a type of Omega-3 fatty acids and provide an anti-inflammatory effect which helps reduce joint pain. Research in both humans and animals have shown that perna mussels have been effective in managing degenerative joint disease and arthritis. Human patients receiving perna mussels reported less pain, joint stiffness and improved mobility.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - 250 mg
The sulfur in MSM can be utilized by the body in the formation of compounds such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, as well as the amino acids methionine and cysteine. Arthritic joints often have low levels of both sulfur and cysteine. Animal studies have found MSM helps to strengthen the tissues that make up the joints.
N,N-Dimethylglycine HCl (DMG) - 50 mg
DMG is naturally produced in the body and supports physical and mental energy levels as well as efficient oxygen utilization in tissues. It also acts as an atioxidant to maintain joint health.
dl-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) - 25 IU
Manganese (as Mn Proteinate) - 5 mg
Manganese is an essential mineral that activates enzymes responsible for nutrient utilization. It is added to animal supplements to help aid in the uptake of glucosamine.
Grape Seed Extract - 2.5 mg
Grape Seed Extract supports joint health through maintaining circulation and free radical neutralization. Acting as an antioxidant, grape seed extract also supports immune system response.
L-Glutathione - 1 mg.
L-Glutathione is the master antioxidant in the body. It supports free radical neutralization and proper detoxification functions because it ensures that nutrients enter the joint and toxins are flushed out. Glutathione also supports cellular energy.
Selenium (Sodium Selenite - 0.001 mg
Selenium supports free radical neutralization and immune system health and is included as a powerful antioxidant to offer protective support for joint health.
