Why Syn-Flex is the Best
While other companies rushed to the market to capture their share of the glucosamine market and profits, we put Syn-flex through clinical trials, lab analysis, and an eighteen month long market test. We saw the results and listened to the pet owners. Then, using the latest science we improved on the product, adding the proper amounts of ten other beneficial, glucosamine-driving ingredients which work synergistically to

  • Rehabilitate damaged and deteriorate cartilage
  • Reduce inflammation and stiffness
  • Stop the pain
  • Improve mobility
  • Restore the supply of healthy synovial fluid

Syn-flex is one of the most effective glucosamine products on the market today. The majority of glucosamine products available today are in pill or capsule form, which provide glucosamine as a powder. In powder form, glucosamine is not absorbed completely (about 11-20% is actually absorbed) which means it can often take 6-10 weeks for your pet to improve.

Syn-flex is in a high quality liquid formula, and has a 98% absorption rate. With the pharmaceutical quality glucosamine and eleven other beneficial ingredients, most pet owners are able to notice a significant improvement in their pet in 10-20 days.

Syn-flex doesn’t just alleviate your dog or cat’s pain, it slows the progression of the disease by stimulating the production of proteoglycan and glycosaminoglycan molecules which renew the supply of synovial fluid within the cartilage matrix of the diseased joint(s), rehabilitating the cartilage and allowing your pet to move without pain.

Syn-Flex has no side effects as with rimadyl or metacam, just proven results!

Did you know 30% of Dogs & Cats Have Arthritis? Here are the signs:

  • Reluctance to walk, climb stairs, jump, or play
  • Limping
  • Lagging behind on walks
  • Difficulty rising from a resting position
  • Yelping in pain when touched
  • A personality change
  • Resistant to touch

What Syn-flex does for pets…
Just as in the case of usage for human beings with OA, Syn-flex™ works quickly to ease your pet’s pain. Typically, you will see your pet responding as they become more active and lively.

Glucosamine has been clinically proven to not only slow the progress of arthritis, even more importantly it will actually begin the process of rehabilitating and reversing the damage that has already been done.

Even if your pet does not yet have arthritis, Syn-flex can be used as a preventive measure that will ensure your pet will never have to suffer from this debilitating disease. There are number of Greyhound and Iditarod dog sled racing teams using Syn-flex to effectively prevent injuries and keep their dogs in top condition.

Most joint care products on the market today contain low to medium-grade Glucosamine Sulfate or Glucosamine HCL. Syn-flex is not just Glucosamine Sulfate, and by no means is it medium quality. Syn-flex contains high quality Glucosamine Sulfate and Glucosamine HCL plus ten other ingredients formulated for maximum pain relief, cartilage protection, and joint health.

So what do these ingredients actually do?
Glucosamine is a natural sugar produced by the body and found in a wide variety of foods. It is the essential and principal ingredient that determines the quantity of proteoglcycan (water-holding) molecules that are formed within the animal. The greater the amount of glucosamine in the body, the greater the amount of proteoglycans. The proteoglycans are large, water-binding molecules made up of (both) proteins and sugars. It is important to understand that they are a major building block of healthy, vital cartilage. Glucosamine also stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) which are important proteins found in cartilage. They serve to “bind” the water within the cartilage matrix.

Shark Cartilage provides a source of chondroitin sulfate (20% in Syn-flex) which works synergistically with glucosamine to assist in rehabilitating the cartilage that is damaged in your body. Our studies indicate that the use of shark cartilage drives the glucosamine. Although bovine trachea is also a source of chondroitin, we elected to use shark cartilage given the public concerns about BSE. (Mad Cow Disease). Let’s discuss the role of this ingredient further.

Chondroitin Sulfate serves to attract fluids into proteoglycan molecules which assists you in two ways. First, it draws nutrients into your cartilage. Secondly, it increases the flow of fluid into your cartilage to add resiliency. It also serves to protect existing cartilage from premature degeneration by blocking “bad” enzymes that destroy cartilage and as well, prevent nutrient replenishment.

Manganese (Ascorbate) is a mineral that enhances the effectiveness of both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates to synthesize the production of healthy cartilage.

Yucca has a long history in easing joint pain by blocking compounds that prevent the normal formation of cartilage. The root is rich in saponins that elevate an animal’s ability to produce “natural” cortisone.

Bromelain helps to inhibit pro-inflammatory compounds which reduce pain and swelling. Unlike aspirin, bromelain does not inhibit the production of prostaglandins which can have undesirable side effects.

Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docasahexaenoic Acid) are constituents of fish oils that act as anti-inflammatory agents. This is essential to reducing pain where inflammation is present. Usually, these ingredients are sold as stand alone products in health food stores.

Boswellin has been used for centuries in the Indian Ayurvedic system of medicine to maintain healthy joints. Boswellic acids improve blood supply to the joints and maintain the integrity of blood vessels. At least one study has indicated that they may open up collateral blood circulation to provide a more adequate blood supply to your pet’s joints. Boswellin also serves to reduce swelling and improve mobility where individuals experience stiffness in the joints.

Syn-flex also provides the essential Vitamins A, C and E to assist in protecting against the harmful effects of free radicals.

Vitamin A (Beta Carotene) is essential for growth and repair of body tissues and it also aids in bone formation.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) mobilizes your body’s self-defense mechanisms that in turn, assist your immune system in overcoming disease.

Finally, Vitamin E (Tocopheral) is an antioxidant that acts to protect red blood cells and unsaturated fatty acids from oxidation damage. It also assists your body in maintaining healthy membrane tissue.
