VetriScience® Laboratories’ GlycoFlex® 1 bite-sized chews are recommended by veterinarians for puppies and dogs with an early need for basic joint support. It features 600 mg of perna caniliculus, 500 mg of glucosamine and 100 mg of our patented DMG (N, N-Dimethylglycine). GlycoFlex® products contain perna, an edible green-lipped mussel from sourced from the waters of New Zealand. The perna has been freeze-dried so that the whole organism is included, providing many of the nutrients necessary to maintain healthy connective tissue, build healthy cartilage and support normal joint function. It is rich in amino acids, polypeptides, naturally chelated minerals, fatty acids, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), vitamins, glycoproteins, protein complexes, polysaccharides and the nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Perna contains all major classes of GAGs including chondroitin 4 and 6 sulfates and hyaluronic acid that feed connective tissue such as joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluids.
The perna used in GlycoFlex® products is the GlycOmega™ brand perna canaliculus exclusive to VetriScience® Laboratories. The nutrients provided from Perna also are known to support other systems in the body including sperm motility, vascular system, bladder function, immune system function, and gut health.
Formulated for a lifetime of healthy joints, GlycoFlex® 1 bite-sized chews are recommended as an introductory joint support supplement for pets needing basic support or for those that may be predisposed to joint health issues. The bite-sized chews are naturally flavored with real chicken liver.
