We love dogs. We know dogs. We’re driven by passion, education, and experience in everything we do. That is why we are proud to introduce our high-quality nutritional supplement Anita’s Pure Joint Health For Dogs.
Like humans, dogs need a little variety in their diets and often require supplements for specific health needs. Due to age or genetic predisposition, most dogs will experience issues with their hips and joints at some point in their lifetime. Our joint supplement is formulated with the best ingredients of naturally occurring compounds that help support and extend the healthy life of our dog’s joints.
Along with a high-quality diet, nutritional supplements containing green lipped mussels powder and eggshell membrane have long been recognized by sport and performance dog owners to support hip and joint health, act as an anti-inflammatory, and prevent injury. Now everyday pet owners can have the same benefits of supplementing that support a healthy lifestyle for dogs of all ages. Whether treating an existing joint issue or preventing one, Anita’s Pure Joint Health For Dogs gives an older dog a new sense of energy or helps a younger dogs have many more active years to come.
So, walk a little longer, play a little harder, and jump a little higher. Anita’s Pure Joint Health For Dogs is here to protect your dog’s joint health.
Active ingredients include:
Green Lipped Mussels
Green Lipped Mussels are a species of mussel native to New Zealand. Omega-3 fatty Acids. Omega-3s work by reducing the level of inflammation associated with diseases such arthritis. This is the same compound found in fish oil, however it combines with other compounds found in the mussel that also fight joint inflammation and pain. A good example of these compounds is eicosatetraenoic acid, or ETA. The ETA is found only in green lipped mussels and binds cyclooxygenase, which is an enzyme that causes inflammation. Green lipped mussels have also been shown to contain glycosaminoglycans which have been shown to have joint protective properties.
Eggshell membrane is the small, thin layer inside of the egg. It contains everything that any mammal consuming it would need to maintain or rebuild joints. It's actually about 70% protein, and that protein is collagen.
Collagen is useful for many functions in the body, especially to maintain elasticity in the joints.
Elastin is a protein that supports skin, cardiovascular, cartilage, and spinal health. Elastin is also what gives tissue its elastic tension and ability to bounce back after stretching.
The Amino Acids we’ve included in this joint supplement are specifically desmosine and isodesmosine. These two amino acids are responsible for elastin’s properties.
Including glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid. These are vital polysaccharides that support the connective tissue, interstitial fluids, and skeletal structure of the joints, and help with mobility, range of motion and flexibility.
Glucosamine (as Glucosamine HCl)
Glucosamine will help your dog produce more cartilage cells and synovial fluid, which helps in the lubrication of your dog’s joint to lessen pain. It improves your dog’s general joint health and keeps your dog’s performance in peak condition. Glucosamine can also help in the treatment of spinal disc injury. With the increase of joint repair surgeries, glucosamine can help make the post-surgery recovery less painful since it reduces joint inflammation.
Hyaluronic Acid (as Sodium Hyaluronate)
Since it retains water, this acid promotes lubrication and strengthens connective tissue, while also decreasing joint inflammation. Other benefits are:
- Lubrication – The sticky fluid provides great lubrication for the hip and joints.
- Shock Absorption – The fluid acts as a shock absorber and reduces potential inflammation
- Chondroitin Sulfate
Chondroitin Sulfate (Bovine) is one of the building blocks of cartilage, meaning it helps maintain the thickness of your dog’s natural joint lubrication. It helps give structure to the cartilage and gives compression resistance to the joints.
