ARTHROMAX giant breeds is a joint nutritional supplement for large breed dogs that feeds and helps to support the cartilage on their joints, helping them maintain normal movement. It can be used in young animals with growth problems and in older animals with osteoarthritis as well.
Glucosamine hydrochloride 1000 mg
Glucosamine stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAG), which are the building blocks of the cartilage matrix.
MSM (Methilsulfonilmethan) 400 mg
MSM is an organic sulfur compound. Sulfur is needed to form connective tissue. MSM also seems to act as an analgesic by lessening nerve impulses that transmit pain. Scientific research has shown that there was an inprovement of symptoms like pain, inflamation and swelling in patients by a combined intake of MSM and glucosamine.
Chondroitin sulfate 300 mg
Chondroitin and hyaluronic acid retain water in the articular cartilage, what makes cartilage more flexible and more resistant to injuries and strains.
Hyaluronic acid 40 mg
Hyaluronic acid is one of the two main components of joint fluid, with physical properties similar to rubber. The viscosity of synovial fluid is inversely dependent on the water content. Less water makes it more viscous. This effect is put to work in the joint – pressure on the joint expels water, concentrates the joint solution and thereby lessens the pressure. It also has a significant analgesic (pain-relieving) effect.
Manganese sulfate 14 mg
Manganese is essential for synthesis of GAGs and collagen and allows cross-linking of collagen fibers.
