Glucosamine for dogs
Glucosamine for dogs is a building block of joint cartilage and connective tissue that is no longer produced in the body at an older age and must therefore be administered through the diet. Glucosamine is mainly used against rheumatic diseases, improving joint functions and reducing stiffness .
- Helps repair damaged cartilage
- Lubricates the joints
- Meets the increased need under heavy load and in the growth phase
Glucosamine is a body's own substance and an important building block of cartilage and connective tissue. At a younger age, the animal produces this itself, but the capacity to manufacture this substance decreases as the animal ages. However, the required amount remains unchanged, making it necessary to administer this substance through the diet. When adequate amounts of glucosamine are present in the body, it can help repair damaged cartilage.
This dietary supplement supports the functioning of the joints and improves the quality of the cartilage present in these poles of movement. Glucosamine is responsible for the production and maintenance of synovial fluid (joint lubricant) present in the joint. This ensures smoother movement and better shock resistance.
For the time being, it is mainly used as a supplement, but its effect is more reminiscent of that of a medicine. By promoting the regeneration of the articular cartilage, it directly addresses the cause of joint wear and tear. It powerfully repairs broken joints without inducing dangerous side effects and is said to be even safer than NSAIDs. It is more easily absorbed into the body than chondroitin. This dietary supplement is mainly used in the treatment of joint wear and tear, improving joint function and reducing stiffness. In combination with MSM, chondroitin and/or vitamin C, they reinforce each other.
