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.
Available in 60 count bite-sized chews.
Active Ingredients Per 2 Glyco-Flex II Chews for Cats:
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.
Glucosamine HCl. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 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.
N,N-Dimethylglycine HCl (DMG) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 50 mg
DMG is used to support proper immune response, cardiovascular and skin health.
Manganese (as Mn Proteinate) Soft Chew . . . . . 5 mg
