Your active or aging pet has extra strain placed on their joints, and providing the right joint support formula can make all the difference in their quality of life. Pet health experts know that the body's supply of glucosamine, an important amino acid found in all connective tissue, can diminish as our pets age. Less glucosamine means less joint repair capability, resulting in further damage and often soreness in your pet's joints. Glucosamine can help restore this essential joint component, and most veterinarians agree it's the most fundamental of joint support ingredients. But contemporary research has also found that free radical damage can play a significant role in joint deterioration. In response to these findings, the newest joint support products available include antioxidants to take advantage of their free radical fighting properties, which can reduce oxidative damage to joint tissues.
Only Natural Pet Glucosamine + Asta delivers a focused approach to maintaining your pet's joint health with the power of joint-building glucosamine plus the fast-acting synergy of super-antioxidant, astaxanthin. While not nearly as well-known as some other carotenoids in its family, like beta-carotene and lutein, this powerhouse health co-factor is causing a lot of excitement in the field of antioxidant research. Derived from marine algae cultivated in the waters around Hawaii, astaxanthin has antioxidant properties found to be over 500 times stronger than Vitamin E in some studies, with an accelerated ability to destroy the free radicals at the root of many joint wear-and-tear problems. Astaxanthin also has the ability to support normal immune response in rheumatoid joint disorders and other auto-immune reactive conditions, as well as its ability to help the joints and muscles recover after exercise.
Other research on Astaxanthin has demonstrated its unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver its antioxidant effects throughout the central nervous system. Astaxanthin has been found to be better absorbed by the body than other antioxidants, and to provide protection against skin damage from the sun's UV rays, including light-induced degeneration of the eyes. It is demonstrating promise in the areas of cardiovascular health and has shown potential in supporting healthy blood sugar regulation in diabetic patients.
Take your pet's joint support to the next level with the proven value of glucosamine combined with the cutting edge advantage of astaxanthin. When you give Glucosamine + Asta to your companion, you can stay one step ahead of your pet’s joint issues while supporting their overall wellness. This is a great, fast-acting formula for older cats and dogs starting to show signs of joint stiffness, and for highly active, working or athletic animals of any age.
