What Ingredients Makeup GlycoFlex® Stage 3?
So, what four main ingredients make up the GlycoFlex® Stage 3 chew and how do they affect your pet’s body?
GlycOmega™ brand Perna canaliculus is a green-lipped mussel (GLM) from an exclusive New Zealand source. Unlike Perna extract-based products and mussel powders, which can lack important fatty acids and other bioactive components; the entire organism is utilized. Clinical studies of GLM have shown that oral doses of green-lipped mussel administered for a proper period to arthritic dogs were connected to reduced joint pain and inflammation along with improvements in mobility.
Glucosamine has been shown to support the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) within the cartilage and synovial fluid. As your dog or cat ages, there is a decrease in the production of GAG's, which can result in joint stress, thinning of synovial fluid, and the breakdown of connective tissue.
DMG is an essential nutrient that supports physical and mental energy levels, enhances circulation and the efficient utilization of oxygen in tissues, and acts as an antioxidant to maintain joint health. DMG is also known to reduce muscle fatigue through its ability to lower lactic acid build-up.
MSM helps reduce muscle damage as well as general pain and stiffness related to aging. It is known to support the structure of joints and connective tissue and inhibit inflammatory responses in the body, reducing any stress on the immune system. MSM also increases levels of glutathione, an antioxidant that boosts the immune system. Increased availability of MSM is linked to comfort in mobility and supports collagen production.
How Can GlycoFlex® Stage 3 Be Used Alongside Bracing Devices?
Bracing devices are an additional way to support your dog and cat’s joints. Balto USA braces are specifically designed to support the affected joint in healthy movements, and have the ability to disperse body weight to prevent further injury. You can use braces to help support joint conditions such as elbow, hip, or shoulder dysplasia or to help your pet safely perform day-to-day activities such as using the bathroom or enjoying a short walk.
