WHAT IS GLUCOSAMINE? Glucosamine is a natural substance produced by the body to help build and repair cartilage. As cartilage wears down over time it is necessary for the body to constantly rebuild it and for this it needs glucosamine. Sometimes the canine body isn’t able to produce the glucosamine it needs and this is when supplementation is required. Some brands in the Australian market place are misleading consumers in regards to the “True Strength” of their Glucosamine product. They name their product Glucosamine 500mg but the product only contains 375mg (or less!) of Glucosamine and the rest FILLERS! The end result means your dog wont get enough Glucosamine to meet the clinical dose and receive relief from joint problems. At Health Within we guarantee NO fillers or additives of any kind.
CHONDROITIN- is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. It is a major component of cartilage — the tough, connective tissue that cushions the joints. Chondroitin helps to keep cartilage healthy by absorbing fluid (particularly water) into the connective tissue. It may also block enzymes that break down cartilage, and it provides the building blocks for the body to produce new cartilage.
MSM (the abbreviation for methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a special biological sulfur found in all plants, soils, fruits, vegetables and meats. MSM is extremely important to canines and all other forms of life because it provides a unique dietary source of sulfur that we must have in order to function. MSM is also called Organic Sulfur. DO NOT confuse it with the toxic, inorganic medicinal sulfur compounds or sulfites used on salad bars or sulfur dioxide used on some dried fruits.
Why do we need MSM? MSM may work extremely well for dogs and all animals. Research has also shown that MSM levels decrease with age in dogs, resulting in symptoms of fatigue, tissue, and organ degeneration and increase susceptibility to disease. Fortunately, researchers have now developed MSM as a dietary supplement and have used it in research studies with extraordinary results!
The best MSM for animals is also the Human Grade MSM (especially if you love your pet). ABeware if MSM is being sold really cheap, its because it is cheap “animal grade” MSM. Animal grade MSM, commonly called “Horse Powder” is a basic and impure form of MSM. Some say this is suitable for animal use only, I love my animals and personally wouldn’t feed them an inferior product like “animal grade”. Many agree that it is unethical to use it on animals because it is a cheaper,inferior form of MSM. This product is Human Grade, and health Within do not stock/sell inferior “Animal Grade MSM”. C
How Safe is MSM? MSM is as safe as pure drinking water. Because of it’s inert nature, MSM is non-allergenic, non-pyretic and has no interfering or undesirable pharmacological effects. You cannot overdose with MSM. The body will use what it needs and after 12 hours will flush any excess amounts out of the body.
