All of our 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.
GlycoFlex® II also includes glucosamine a necessary nutrient for building healthy cartilage and MSM, an organic sulfer compound that is necessary to form connective tissue in joints. MSM may also act as an analgesic, supporting comfort by lessening nerve impulses in the body.
With a higher quantity of glucosamine, and the inclusion of MSM, manganese, DMG and perna canaliculus, Glyco Flex® II is formulated to support a lifetime of healthy joints and joint comfort. These bite-sized chews are available in a palatable, chicken liver flavor.
