Glyco-Flex® II Canine
Vetri-Science® Laboratories’ Glyco-Flex® II combines the multiple benefits of GlycOmega® brand Perna and our DMG with glucosamine for dogs, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and manganese. This comprehensive blend of ingredients helps to optimize support of the structure and function of synovial joints in dogs with a need for moderate joint support. It’s recommended for adult, maturing, working, and sporting dogs.
Glyco-Flex II Canine contains GlycOmega, Perna canaliculus from an exclusive New Zealand source. The entire green-lipped mussel is utilized for optimal support. Some Perna extract-based products and mussel powders may lack bioactive components, like specific, important fatty or amino acids, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), vitamins and naturally chelated minerals that the whole organism provides.
GlycOmega® contains all major classes of GAGs that occur in connective tissue (joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluids) like chondroitin sulfates and hyaluronic acid.
Research and understanding:
Over 17 years, researchers have conducted several studies to determine the abilities of Glyco-Flex’s® main ingredients and the product as a whole. The GlycOmega® (Perna used in Glyco-Flex) is exclusive to Vetri-Science.®
Out of top selling brands, Glyco-Flex® is the only joint support product line registered with the FDA as an animal health product. The GlycOmega® Perna whole mussel (used exclusively in Vetri-Science GlycoFlex® products) is the only New Zealand green lipped mussel clinically researched for its impact on the body’s inflammatory response.
Patented N,N-Dimethylglycine HCl
Glyco-Flex® II Canine features our patented DMG, an adaptogen known for its immune support properties. DMG is naturally occurring in small amounts, and assists in methylation processes within the body. This amino acid derivative supports circulation and oxygen utilization, promoting better nutrient delivery to the joint. Vetri-Science® Laboratories has obtained four patents on DMG backed by 20 years of research.
Image of a healthy Joint
Because Glyco-Flex® II Canine is designed to represent serious support, we’ve added MSM to our tablet and chewable formulas. MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is an organic, sulfur-containing compound. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), the fundamental building blocks of joint cartilage, are linked together by disulfide bonds (bonds between two sulfur atoms). Because cartilage is in a sulfur-dependent state of quality, MSM supports joint and connective tissue health.
Glyco-Flex® II stands out because of added glucosamine. A natural compound found in healthy cartilage, glucosamine sulfate is a constituent of glycosaminoglycans in synovial fluid, meaning it supports joint health through promoting synovial fluid viscosity and strength of the cartilage matrix.
Even the taste is optimal
Available in both a tablet formula and a chicken liver-flavored bite size chew, Glyco-Flex® II Canine is known for its high palatability.
