About the Formula
Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO) is the common name for cis-9-cetyl myristoleate an all natural medium chain fatty acid. It supports lubrication of the joint, range of motion, muscle resiliency, functions as an immune system modulator and like a fatty acid, supports the production of favorable prostaglandins (1 & 3) and leukotrienes.
Glucosamine HCl is a necessary building block for manufacturing Chondroitin Sulfates-4-&-6 and makes up 50% of Hyaluronic Acid - the principal component of synovial fluid. As dogs age and with injury, there is a decrease in the production of Chondrotin Sulfates and Hyaluronic Acid which can result in joint stress, thinning of synovial fluid, and breakdown of connective tissue. Glucosamine supports joint comfort as well as greater mobility to the stressed joints.
MSM is a source of organic sulfur. Sulfur supports proper maintenance of connective tissue function and formation of collagen, and is used to support joint comfort and circulation
Vitamin C is required for the production of collagen and GAGs. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C also helps eliminate free radicals, a source of potential joint damage.
Bromelain helps to support joint structure and function which aids in comfort.
Boswellia serrata contains active compounds that have been shown to support joint structure and function by supporting the immune response and antioxidant activity.
Yucca is an herb that is rich in saponins which support an animal’s ability to produce "natural" cortisone to support joint comfort.
Curcumin is an herb that works synergistically with Boswellia to support joint comfort and help control destructive enzymes.
