GlycoFlex Plus for Dogs
The GlycoFLEX® product line pioneered the use of hip and joint supplements in companion animals, making GlycoFLEX® one of our most successful contributions to the veterinary industry.
GlycoFLEX® contains a unique combination of the GlycOmega™ brand Perna canaliculus, plus DMG, glucosamine, MSM, and other active ingredients that have been studied for use in dogs requiring advanced joint support. GlycoFLEX® is the only Perna-based clinically researched joint support product available.
PERNA CANALICULUS (GLYCOMEGA™ BRAND GREEN LIPPED MUSSEL)
All of the GlycoFLEX® products contain Perna canaliculus, an edible green-lipped mussel from New Zealand. The GlycOmega™ brand Perna has been freeze-dried so that the whole organism is included, providing many of the factors necessary to maintain healthy connective tissue. 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 occur in connective tissue, such as joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluids. The GlycOmega™ brand Perna used in GlycoFLEX® products is exclusive to VetriScience® Laboratories. All GlycoFLEX® products are produced under strict quality control measures, including a comprehensive analysis of raw materials and the finished product.
GlycoFLEX® 3 was used in a randomized, double-blind, crossover design dog study at Washington State University. In this study, researchers used a scientifically valid model to determine if GlycoFLEX® 3 could help support joint function in all dogs. The results of the study suggest that GlycoFLEX® 3 may help support joint function in all dogs.
Studies like this one exemplify what veterinarians have said about VetriScience® since we began making supplements: The proof is in the results.
