PhyCox Soft Chews are formulated with a synergistic combination
of ingredients to help relieve inflammation as part of normal daily activity.
Phycox® is a naturally derived extract of wild blue-green algae grown in the
United States. Blue-green algae are a rich source of phytonutrients including
Phycocyanin, a biliprotein that has scientifically demonstrated health benefits.
The Phycox® patented process produces a highly concentrated source of Phycocyanin,
offering strong joint support and relief of discomfort in two ways:
1. Proven Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) Inhibition –
Recent studies demonstrate the high concentrations of Phycocyanin
found in Phycox® specifically inhibit the COX-2 enzyme, blocking the synthesis
of inflammatory eicosanoids, the natural mediators of inflammation in the body.
2. Dynamic Antioxidant – Phycocyanin
has robust free radical scavenging properties. It can help enhance the body’s
defense against the degradative effects of free radicals that cause cellular
damage and play a role in a host of degenerative conditions in dogs.
Turmeric is a natural botanical extract from the roots of the
Curcuma longa plant with well-researched health benefits. Due to its
ability to inhibit leukotriene biosynthesis and modify prostaglandin production,
Turmeric has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities.
MSM provides dietary sulfur that aids in the efficient
cellular membranes and supports healthy muscles and joints by
Omega-3 Fatty Acids:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids help reduce inflammation by altering the
production of inflammatory mediators and support joint health
by inhibiting enzymes involved in cartilage matrix
In addition to relieving inflammation, the PhyCox formula offers
a joint support matrix for healthy synovial maintenance as well as bone and
muscle support. Glucosamine HCl A precursor for glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), essential
building blocks of cartilage, glucosamine supports joint health by stimulating
GAG production in the extracellular matrix of cartilage. Glucosamine reduces
the activity of inflammatory mediators and damaging enzymes that can degrade
cartilage. Boron Boron is a mineral required for normal bone metabolism. Boron
supplementation increases bone strength and the mineral content of the bone
organic matrix. Through its interaction with nutrients such as calcium, magnesium
and Vitamin D, Boron improves overall bone metabolism. Creatine Monohydrate
A vital amino acid found in skeletal muscle, Creatine plays a role in muscular
energy and may have value in improving muscle strength, making pets feel more
energetic. Antioxidants In addition to potent protection from oxidative damage
offered by Phycocyanin, Turmeric and other key ingredients.
The PhyCox formula also contains a special blend
of antioxidants to inhibit the destructive activity of free radicals.
