JOINT GUARD helps prevent cartilage degeneration by supplying all critical components on a daily basis. This is a chondroprotective (joint protective) effect. It is formulated for regular, in-feed administration.
Reasearch trails on combinations of Glucosamin, Chondroitin, Manganese and Vitamin C report a significant synery between these componants, and a condroprotective effect, as well as a mild anit-inflammatory effect following regular administration. The essential companants in JOINT GUARD serve to both reduce cartilage degeneration, and stimulate production of healthy cartilage matrix.
Glucosamine - stimulates formation of both synovial (joint) fluid and the cartilage matrix,
Chondroitin - provides protection from the enzymes which break down cartilage, and is the major component in cartilage,
Manganese and Vitamin C - are essential in the pathways to manufacture cartilage,
MSM - is used during soft connective tissue synthesis e.g. in the joint capsule.
JOINT GUARD for Dogs & Cats is given daily with each meal, dosed according to weight. Each scoop contains 205g of powder. It can be given to young animals at a low daily maintenance dose for a regular protective effect, or at a higher daily dose for animals experiencing existing cartilage damage:
