Sasha's Blend powder 8.75oz
What is it beneficial for?
Dogs with stiff joints, which may arise from, joint injury or general
‘wear and tear’.
It may also be used as a tonic for dogs that exercise heavily or are involved in high performance activities such as racing. It also provides an energy boost and conditions the overall body and coat.
How does it Work?
What we know is that Glycosaminoglycans (also referred to as Mucopolysaccharides) are a component of connective tissue and act as the natural joint lubricant. It had been shown that joint dysfunction and gastric and skin eczema complaints as well as ageing are directly associated with the changes of Glycosaminoglycan content in tissue. Glycosaminoglycans have a role in maintaining viscosity of various body fluids that act as a buffer cushion and help ease the movement of joints between one bone and another. As dogs age, their body tends to reduce the amount of Glycosaminoglycans it produces. This then results in reduced joint function.
Why does it Work?
Sasha’s Blend is very high in proteins that contain complex sugars.
These sugars contain properties (Glycosaminoglycans) responsible for the lubrication effect of Sasha’s Blend. It is the lipid-glycogen actives (primarily from the Mussel and Abalone) together with the Glycosaminoglycans including chondroitin sulphate, heparin sulphate, dermatan sulphate and hyaluronic acid, which act as a potent tonic, triggering the body to produce synovial fluid to protect the joints reducing the risk of joint degredation and toning up the whole body.
How soon will it work?
There should be improved joint function and restoration of mobility within two weeks of taking Sasha’s Blend. In some animals a positive effect can be seen in as little as three days.
Are there any side effects?
Safety trials on Sasha's Blend have been conducted. There are no adverse side effects, however it is not recommended that it be given to pregnant dogs.
