In simple terms, glucosamine works by making a chain of molecules that string together and attach to the joint to build cartilage. This magical molecule attracts water into the cartilage and gives it its flexibility, lubrication and cushioning to face all those doggy jumps.
Chondroitin is often paired with Glucosamine in joint supplements to support the performance. Chondroitin is naturally found in the ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel and helps with cartilage support. It is also an absorption aid, making sure the ingredients work in the best way possible to support your dogs joints.
Lintbells fact: Because our Chondroitin comes from our own ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, you can be confident it’s coming from a sustainable, well-managed source.
Young dogs generally produce enough Glucosamine, to support their joints. As our four-legged friends age, they are less able to produce Glucosamine, the building block of joint structure. Just like us, as our dogs are getting older we need to supplement their diet too make sure you are providing sufficient levels of pure Glucosamine to support their joints.YuMOVE Fact -YuMOVE uses 98.8% pure Glucosamine from a stable, vegetarian source.
Many supplements that contain Glucosamine for dogs typically contain Glucosamine Sulphate. YuMOVE Soft Chews contain Glucosamine HCl. This provides 20% more active Glucosamine due to how it's structured. Also, the sulphate form is less stable and requires salt to stabilise it. YuMOVE contains an ingredient with minimal impurities as possible, so only uses the best triple-action formula to help keep dog's joints in great shape.
Whilst Glucosamine is great it won't provide all round joint support and Glucosamine is where many joint supplements start.... and stop!
The problem with a purely 'structural' approach is that it does very little to address the support your dog's joints need, which means that the majority of the problems remain unaddressed. A structured approach partnered with our all natural ingredients can help begin to create a helping hand to your doggy woes!
