This hypoallergenic formula contains 100% non-shellfish, non-animal derived Glucosamine which is suitable for vegetarian and pets that are allergic to shellfish or seafood. Most of the Glucosamine available in the market is derived from chitin extracted from the shellfish and is not suitable for pets sensitive to shellfish or seafood as it may cause food allergies which may trigger skin itchiness or digestive problems.
Glucosamine is the fundamental building block for healthy joints. It stimulates proteoglycan synthesis and helps in the regeneration of cartilage. It has a mild anti-inflammatory effect and helps to relieve joint pain. It also helps to promote the production of Hyaluronic Acid, a main component of synovial fluid and matrix of skin and cartilage.
Celadrin® is a cellular lubricant which provides fast, long lasting joint relief and helps to enhance overall joint health and functional ability. It has been clinically shown to reduce pain and inflammation without harmful side effects associated with corticosteroids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as stomach ulcers and kidney problems.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. It relieves joint pain, inflammation and stiffness to improve joint mobility and flexibility.
Glucosamine is a large molecule required for the regeneration of cartilage. MSM is a small molecule, providing basically the sulfur which is used in the bonding that link the chains of larger compounds. Study has demonstrated the synergistic effect between these two ingredients and they help to accelerate joint repair and regeneration.
