Why use Canine Joint Right?
Beneficial Omega 3 Fatty Acids, DHA & EPA
Canine Joint-Right contains a high level of micro encapsulated fish oil, naturally rich in DHA and EPA Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These essential fatty acids (EFAs) cannot be made by the body and therefore must come from foods. They are well known for their nutritional benefits to joint health, helping to ease movement and aid the circulation, thus allowing the synovial fluid (joint oil) to flow freely over working surfaces of the joint. DHA and EPA play an essential role in the proper functioning of many of the major systems in the body. DHA in particular has been shown in research to play an important role in brain development and function. Trials conducted on puppies have shown that a DHA supplemented diet resulted in quicker learning and improved memory. Other obvious benefits are a healthy skin and coat.
Beneficial Glucosamine for dogs
Canine Joint-Right is a great source of glucosamine for dogs. Glucosamine is an amino sugar used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid (joint oil). It stimulates production of GAG’s (glucosaminoglycans) in synovial fluid to enhance lubrication. In addition to being a lubricant this fluid acts as a shock absorber cushioning the joints during exercise. Synovial fluid tends to become thinner due to old age and wear and tear, thus losing some of its soothing properties. Glucosamine is a soluble natural product obtained from crustacean shells. After being consumed it is absorbed through the wall of the intestine into the body. It is then attracted to the joint cells where it provides the raw material to build up synovial fluid.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the most important glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) playing a crucial role in the cushioning and lubrication of joints by increasing the viscosity of synovial fluid. It has been used for many years in injectable form, but is now also available as an oral supplement.
Beneficial Chondroitin Sulphate
Most bones end in cartilage, a plastic like material which lines the joints preventing bone grating against bone. If this lining wears out the joint becomes stiff and creaky. Chondroitin is a constituent of cartilage and works in synergy with glucosamine to maintain a sound cartilage coating. The main function of chondroitin is to attract water into the cartilage which helps to maintain its spongy texture.
Beneficial MSM (methylsulphonylmethane)
MSM is a naturally occurring form of organic sulphur vital for the building of joints, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It therefore plays an important role supporting glucosamine and chondroitin in the maintenance of healthy joints.
Vitamins E and C nutritionally support the immune system by neutralizing free radicals. Vitamin C, like MSM, is very important in the maintenance of joint tissues, and it is known to play a major role in making collagen.
