Formulas to support proper joint and connective tissue function in cats.
Glyco-Flex products are safe formulas for the support of joint and connective tissue functions in cats at any stage of life. Glyco-Flex II Feline combines the multiple benefits of GlycOmega brand Perna and our DMG with Glucosamine, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and Manganese. This potent combination of ingredients helps to optimize support of the structure and function of synovial joints in cats with increased need for joint support.
GlycOmega Perna canaliculus from New Zealand is from an exclusive source available only to Vetri-Science Laboratories. Perna is an edible species of shellfish that has been freeze-dried in a concentrated powder. It provides many constituents necessary to maintain healthy connective tissue as well as support the cellular processes required for injured or aged joints. Perna is rich in amino acids, naturally chelated minerals, essential fatty acids, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and vitamins all of which work together to support joint structure and function. GlycOmega Perna contains all major classes of GAGs including Chondroitin Sulfates and Hyaluronic Acid that occur in connective tissue such as joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluids. The perna used in our Glyco-Flex products is time-tested and cost effective!
DMG is naturally produced in the body. It can support physical and mental energy levels and efficient oxygen utilization in tissues. DMG acts as an antioxidant to protect the joints.
Glucosamine has been shown to support the production of glycosaminoglycans within the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. As cats age, there is a decrease in the production of GAGs, which can result in joint stress, thinning of synovial fluid, and breakdown of connective tissue. Glucosamine also supports bladder and urinary tract health by improving the integrity of the mucosal lining.
MSM is a source of organic sulfur. It supports the structure of joints and connective tissue. Increased availability of MSM is linked to greater comfort and mobility, as well as the support of collagen production.
Manganese is an essential mineral for the formation of collagen, GAGs, and proteoglycans, all of which support required cartilage integrity. A lack of Manganese can lead to inefficient production within the joints.
