- Provides enhanced connective tissue support.
- Suitable for larger equine dosages and for canine and feline dosages.
This convenient formula combines two of the most important cartilage building blocks, glucosamine and chondroitin, with manganese ascorbate for enhanced connective tissue support. Glucosamine promotes the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, such as chondroitin sulfate. The primary structural compound of articular cartilage, chondroitin sulfate also helps to block the activity of degradative enzymes. Together, glucosamine and chondroitin may provide synergistic support for healthy hyaluronic acid content and synovial fluid. The trace mineral manganese plays a key role in supporting glycosaminoglycan and mucopolysaccharide production and encourages the antioxidant activity of superoxide dismutase. Ascorbate is a vital nutrient for proper collagen formation and also serves as an antioxidant. In a recent study, the combination of glucosamine HCl, chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate demonstrated the ability to promote joint function.
