Discover a key ingredient for strengthening dogs' joints: Glucosamine.
Healthy, strong joints are important.
Arthritis and stiff joints are not only very painful, they can be a precursor to other health complications. Such as difficulty in performing natural movements which limits the enjoyment of daily life. In addition, excessive weight gain and subsequent illnesses such as diabetes or heart disease can occur.
Healthy joints are a solid and flexible foundation for your dog's vitality and well-being.
The miracle ingredient? Glucosamine!
Glucosamine is important for the proper functioning of our pets' bodies, as well as our own. This natural compound contributes to the growth, repair and maintenance of cartilage and synovial fluid. It acts as a shock absorber. In combination with collagen, glucosamine is essential for the production and repair of cartilage. It may also help maintain the viscous consistency of synovial fluid that naturally lubricates the joint cavities between the bones.
Although glucosamine is naturally present in the body, dogs produce less and less of it as they age. Therefore, a lack of glucosamine means that damaged cartilage cannot repair itself.
The result is stiff, creaky, painful joints, or worse. The development of canine arthritis. This means that increasing the levels of glucosamine in our dogs' bodies is an excellent starting point for treating or even preventing joint problems in our pets.
Some foods claim to be a source of glucosamine, but most do not provide the total amount recommended for a dog to maintain healthy joints.
One way to give your dog a good dose of glucosamine is to turn to supplements like MOVE from Hello Jack. Supplements containing glucosamine can improve the range of motion, flexibility and mobility of your dog's joints, which helps slow down the aging process and may even prevent the onset of chronic conditions.
In addition, glucosamine has natural anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent supplement for dogs already suffering from joint pain.
Research suggests that the cells in your dog's body do not recognize synthetic nutrients as they would from natural sources, and therefore reject them. Synthetic nutrients do not function as well as natural nutrients, so they are not as easily absorbed by the body.
