Joint Support Supplements

Keeping the connective tissues in our pet’s joints healthy is a concern for pet Guardians, especially those with working dogs, large breeds and older or arthritic pets. But what do joint supplements really do for your pet? Understanding the ingredients is the key.

Glucosamine is a natural sugar produced by the body. It determines the quantity of water-holding molecules that are formed, and is a major building block of healthy, vital cartilage.

Chondroitin Sulfate assists in rehabilitating the cartilage that is damaged in your body. Chondroitin Sulfate draws nutrients into your cartilage and increases the flow of fluid to add resiliency.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of bioavailable sulfur, essential for the growth and repair of tendons, cartilage and other connective tissues. MSM is also an anti-inflammatory agent.

Ester-C boosts the absorption of the glucosamine complex and MSM and promotes collagen formation.

Yucca has a long history in easing joint pain by blocking compounds that prevent the normal formation of cartilage. The root is rich in saponins that elevate an animal’s ability to produce “natural” cortisone.
