Arthritis Medicine for Dogs, Cats & People

Glucosamine

is a natural sugar produced by the body and found in certain foods. It plays an important role in the production, maintenance, and repair of cartilage. It stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, two essential building blocks of cartilage.


Shark Cartilage

is a source of Chondroitin Sulfate. It drives the Glucosamine and provides maximum absorption. Also, in many trials it has reduced the possibility of developing cancer. Bovine Trachea can also be used as a source of Chondroitin, however, there is a risk of BSE (Mad Cow Disease).

Chondroitin Sulfate

reduces inflammation and assists the Glucosamine in protecting against future cartilage degeneration.

Bromelaine

cleans away the "debris" in the joints restores proper fluid balance. In addition, it helps to inhibit inflammatory compounds and reduces pain and swelling.

Ascorbate

(Manganese and ascorbic acid) assists your body with processing the glucosamine. This is a very important ingredient and one that is missing in nearly every glucosamine product on the market today.

Yucca

has a long history in treating arthritis and rheumatism. The root is rich in sponins that elevate your body's ability to produce cortisone naturally.
The

Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acid

(eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docasahexaenoic acid) are constituents of fish oils that act as anti-inflammatory agents. Usually, these products are sold separately in health food stores as salmon or fish oil. Syn-Flex brings both of these to you in one formula.

Boswellin

has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to maintain healthy joints. Boswellic acids improve blood supply to the joints and maintain the integrity of blood vessels. At least one study has indicated that they may open up collateral blood circulation to provide adequate blood supply to the joints. Boswellin has been known to reduce joint swelling, maintain blood supply to inflamed joints and mobility, as well as reduce pain due to stiffness in the joints.

Vitamin A

(Beta carotene) is essential for growth and repair of body tissues and it aids in bone formation.

Vitamin C

(ascorbic acid) produces a mobilization of your body's self-defense mechanisms, which assists your immune system to overcome disease.
And finally,

Vitamin E (Tocopheral)

is an antioxidant, which acts to protect red blood cells and unsaturated fatty acids from oxidation damage. It also assists your body in maintaining healthy membrane tissue.
Vitamin A, C, and E all promote general health and protect against the harmful effect of free radicals.
