A truly fabulous product

Cannot rate this product (flex sprinkles) too highly. My 15 year old Westie was crippled with Arthritis and we were really thinking maybe its time to consider what is in his best interests. A free offer of Sprinkles caught my husbands eye and Milo’s life has been changed overnight. He goes on his morning walk with a spring in his step it is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you so much

This has totally transformed my 12 year old black lab, who has elbow dysplasia and arthritis. A dog who struggled to get up and down the steps, now bounds up and down like a 2 year old

How Do I Help My Dog’s Stiff Joints?

 

Stiff joints don’t discriminate. They affect not only people of all ages, but also  our furry friends, too. If you’re a dog-owner, you want your buddy to eat well, look bright-eyed and playful, and greet you as only a doggy can when you come home. A healthy diet and exercise to help maintain proper weight are the primary ways to help your dog’s stiff joints. A joint supplement such as FLEX jointcare is a really great way too compliment this.

All the active ingredients used in FLEX jointcare have been clinically proven to support dog joint health in numerous scientific studies. We do not add unproven ingredients just because someone else may offer them. All the ingredients in FLEX have been carefully selected, based on the results of research that prove their beneficial effects on the health of your dog’s joints.

How Can I Help My Dog’s Poor Hips Or Elbows?

 

The use of a  supplement to maintain good hip & elbow joint health is recommended; especially in medium and larger breed dogs. Flex Sprinkle has a wide usage in supporting healthy hips or elbows in all breeds.

The natural glycoaminoglycans, vitamins and trace minerals all assist in helping your dog’s hips and elbows by supporting the joint and providing  the specialist nutrition required.

Joint care and mobility in elderly dogs

 

As your dog grows into middle and then older age you can expect that life will take its toll on his joints. This is a time whern extra help from supplementation may improve his enjoyment and quality of life.

The production of common compounds that we associate with joint care (Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Hyalauric Acidetc) known as GAG’s (glycoaminoglycans !!) reduces in older and elderly dogs.  

These older dogs therefore become more susceptible to joint problems ranging from just stiffness after exercise, – to more serious issues.

GAG’s  are present in the connective tissues such as  cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Some types of  GAGs attract water molecules, providing cartilage with extra shock absorption properties.

They also have negative electrical charges so the GAG molecules tend to repel each other, imparting a degree of resilience and further protection against trauma and physical shock.

Supplements like Flex are rich in these nutrients and can compensate for your elderly dogs increasing need for them.

Why do Vets  recommend Green Lipped Mussel extract for dogs?

 

The reason is because green-lipped mussel is increasingly being recognised as a natural maintenance for joint health and which at the same time provides long term nourishment.  Joint and cartilage function is supported and the production of synovial joint fluid for lubrication is encouraged.

For hundreds of years the coastal Maoris of New Zealand have eaten Green Lipped Mussels as a major part of their diet. The Maoris would harvest the mussels growing naturally on the seashores and would eat them raw. Even though they saw the mussel as an important part of their diet, they did not realise the benefits they were gaining, until settlers in New Zealand later realised that these Maoris had far superior joint health compared to Westerners.

Veterinary surgeons often now promote the addition to the diet of green-lipped mussel as a means  of long-term maintenance of joint health.

Why do our dogs need joint supplements?

 

Dogs are a species whom we increasingly realise may need additional nutrients to maintain optimum joint and limb health; larger breeds even more so. The increasing use of dogs in sport and leisure activities such as Agility, Flyball, Cannicross, Dog Sledding and  Field Sports is another factor that increases long term wear and tear on the joints.

How do you know if your dog is a likely candidate for joint supplementation and could use green lipped mussel extract for dogs? Perhaps you have simply noticed for yourself an uncharacteristic lack of enthusiasm for exercise, stiffness after rest, awkwardness mounting steps or jumping into the car.  It really makes no difference if your aspirations were to shine in the breed ring, at obedience or agility or simply to enjoy a naturally active life-style with your pet – no doubt you will be looking around for the best way to keep him as comfortable as possible for as long as possible. Remember though that dogs  do still need exercise, not so much as to cause an excess amount of wear and tear but sufficient to keep muscles toned so that they can work to support the joints.

 

What’s in Green Lipped Mussel that helps dogs?

Unique Omega 3 Fatty Acid – ETA

The Green Lipped Mussel possesses a profile of Omega-3 essential fatty acids which is unique . No other marine or vegetable sources contain anything like as much beneficial Omega 3 oils. Most sources of Poly-unsaturated fatty acids (eg fish oils, flax oil etc) are a mixture of  Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils. The balance between the amount of Omega 3 and 6 consumed is vital because Omega 6 oils can increase inflammation. Our Flex  Green Lipped Mussel extract is rich in Omega 3 oils providing up to 200 times as much per milligram as fish and vegetable oils.

Natural Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Flex Jointcare provides a rich source of all major classes of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) which are principle components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in the joint. These GAGS provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to the articular cartilage. Good joint health can depend on promoting  GAGS content within the joint and surrounding cartilage. As a source of GAGS, Green Lipped Mussel can provide chondrocytes with Chondroitin Sulphate and essential fatty acids which are critical for maintaining joint health.

A  complete joint care formula

Flex Jointcare is the complete joint-care product as it is well balanced with Chondroitin Sulphates 4 and 6, chelated minerals, Glycosaminoglycan GAGS, amino acids and essential fatty acids which together give a synergistic effect that promotes healthy cartilage and provides shock absorbing properties to the joint.

 

Green Lipped Mussel Quality

Because cheaper Green Lipped Mussel extracts have some of the fatty acids removed they are not as effective at reducing inflammation. Flex Green Lipped Mussel is full strength with no oils extracted. It is supplied direct to us from the New Zealand producer who farms the mussels, processes them and then has every batch tested by an independent body. The mussels are harvested at their peak once per year and the process uses the latest cold extraction and drying technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeding

 

Flex Sprinkle is a concentrated granule that is fed with your dog’s normal food. Each pot of Sprinkle contains a scoop that will measure 1300mg of granules, or if you prefer you can use a level small teaspoon instead of the measure, the amount isn’t too critical. There are 38 scoops in the 50 gm pot and 192 scoops in the 250g tub. Feed twice a day if possible by sprinkling onto your dog’s food.
