Composition and Analysis
Contains 13 Active Nutraceuticals
Nutraceuticals are nutritional substances that provide additional health benefits. Through the addition of the following nutraceuticals, Joint Aid provides a complementary support for all dogs.
1 - Chondroitin - essential for the resilience and natural regeneration of cartilage. It maintains normal enzymatic activity and water holding capacity to provide healthy resistance to compression.
2 - Collagen Matrix - collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the framework that gives tissues their firmness and resilience. It is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.
3 - Curcumin - the active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.
4 - Glucosamine - glucosamine gives cartilage its structure and shock absorbing qualities. It is also involved in the formation of tendons, skin, bone and ligaments.
5 - Glutamic Acid - a natural flavour enhancer and an important nutritional support for gut health during times of stress.
6 - Hemp Oil Derived Omega 3 Fatty Acids - Hemp Oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the animal to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils and are crucial for maintaining the natural anti-inflammatory action of the body.
7 - MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - a source of sulphur, which helps to form cross links with other molecules that maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissues. It is also essential for the manufacture of collagen.
8 - Piperine Black Pepper Extract - a natural nutritional addition that helps to maintain the absorption of poorly retained active nutraceuticals, i.e. curcumin.
9 - Vitamin C - essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues in mammals. It directly affects the level of tissue growth or development after injury.
The Unique Oatinol Delivery System
KB - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Oatinol Delivery System'
Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies four active nutraceuticals to:
Maintain gut cell integrity.
Maintain the lining of the gut.
Support the immune system.
Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.
10 - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers - a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.
11 - Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants - a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.
12 - Oat Derived Beta Glucans - Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.
13 - Phospholipids - these have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
