Why use GlycoFlex 3?
The answer is simple: VetriScience has over forty years of experience in animal health. We’ve used all our experience in formulating GlycoFlex 3.
GlycoFlex is the only joint support product line registered with the FDA as an animal health product.
For over 17 years, researchers have conducted several studies to determine the abilities of GlycoFlex’s main ingredients and the product as a whole. Backed with this extensive research, GlycoFlex offers peace of mind for pet owners concerned with their animal’s nutrition. GlycoFlex is the only Perna product researched in canine-specific studies.
What are the unique ingredients in GlycoFlex 3?
The GlycOmega Perna whole mussel (used exclusively in VetriScience GlycoFlex products) is the only New Zealand green lipped mussel clinically researched for its impact on the body’s inflammatory process. 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. GlycOmega is exclusive to VetriScience .
The whole organism difference
The entire green-lipped mussel is utilized for optimal support. The whole mussel provides important fatty or amino acids glycosaminoglycans, vitamins and naturally chelated minerals that Perna extract-based products and mussel powders may lack. This specific mussel is grown and harvested under strict quality control conditions to ensure that none of its nutrients are destroyed or deactivated in processing. Safety studies on this product are available on request.
Patented N,N-Dimethylglycine HCl
GlycoFlex 3 features 50 mg of 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. VetriScience Laboratories has obtained four patents on DMG backed by 20 years of research.
Because GlycoFlex 3 is designed to represent offer serious support, we’ve added MSM, which is guaranteed to be 99 percent pure. 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.
GlycoFlex 3 stands out because of added glucosamine, at 250 mg per serving, guaranteed to be 99 percent pure and tested for quality. 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.
What is the science behind joint health?
The only joints that move (allowing pivot-like adjustments) are called “synovial joints,” so coined because of the synovial fluid that surrounds them. The fibrous sac surrounding the joint is called the capsule, and is filled with synovial fluid and lined with a synovial membrane. Each bone end in the joint is padded with a thin layer of cartilage. The articular cartilage is made up of a matrix containing collagen and glycosaminoglycans (GAGS). The synovial fluid is the nourishment for the cartilage. When cartilage has a loose or compromised matrix, bone can rub on bone, creating an uncomfortable friction. To avoid this unpleasant sensation, it is necessary to maintain the health of the synovial fluid.
GlycoFlex 3 Hip and Joint Supplement for Cats represents stage 3 of our comprehensive joint support program designed to maintain connective tissue function, joint comfort and mobility through all the stages of your cat’s life. Recommended by veterinarians for over 30 years, this formula offers high levels of Glucosamine, MSM and Perna canaliculus for superior joint care. GlycoFlex 3 for cats also includes Grape Seed Extract, L-Glutathione and Selenium to promote optimal nutrient absorption and immune support. Great for cats that are slowing down due to aging, weight gain or other joint related issues.
