Prosamine For Dogs & Cats
Joint Health Supplement
Prosamine is an affordable
glucosamine-based supplement designed to provide the nutrients needed to build
and restore joint tissues. It also contains vitamins, minerals, and
hydroxyproline, which is a scarce amino acid essential for cartilage
maintenance. There are many sources and choices for glucosamine products.
However, it's important for you to know that quality ingredients, which are safe
for animals, are present in the amount shown on the label. Some human and pet
joint supplements have been tested and found to be missing a portion or all of
the claimed amounts of key ingredients. In addition, human products sometimes
contain ingredients that are completely safe for people, but not for animals.
Prosamine is a better value than most store brands with
guaranteed safety and quality.

Nutritional support for managing joint conditions and for maximizing orthopedic
post-surgical healing. It provides many of the basic building blocks used in the
natural regeneration of connective tissues, such as cartilage, tendons, and
ligaments. Many factors such as age, trauma, surgery or arthritis influence how
rapidly injured connective tissue heals.
Glucosamine, through its increased availability,
stimulates the chondrocytes in the cartilage to make more hyaluronic acid that
goes into the ground substance of the tissue, building a wetter, plumper
cartilage and providing lubrication. Studies also show that glucosamine will
lead to the production of more glycosaminoglycans, which are then incorporated
into proteoglycans. These proteoglycans in the cartilage hold water and give it
its shock-absorbing properties. The results are improved joint flexibility,
function and comfort accompanied by greater mobility. In addition to the high
concentration of glucosamine, Prosamine also incorporates hydroxyproline, which
is a scarce amino acid not often found in other joint products. Hydroxyproline
is crucial for joint tissue synthesis and repair.
