Prescription pain relievers are the chief medical treatment for joint conditions in pets but nearly all of them have side effects and do nothing to halt the advance of arthritis. Joint Rejuv supports healthy joint function, helps minimize joint pain, rebuilds cartilage and maintains structural integrity of joints. After a few weeks to a month on Joint Rejuv, your pet should display noticeable improvement in comfort, mobility and attitude.
Joint Rejuv combines the benefits of glucosamine with the properties of chondroitin and eight other synergistic ingredients - all of which work together to provide an optimum joint formulation. Glucosamine is made up of glucose and an amino acid called glutamine which is produced in the body to help manufacture specialized molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are important for the development of bone, tendons, ligaments, nails, hair, skin and cartilage. Glucosamine is highly beneficial in protecting against degeneration of the joints and giving relief from the pain associated with arthritis. Chondroitin is a natural compound found in joints. In degenerative diseases such as arthritis its presence diminishes as cartilage erodes. It is thought to block the enzymes that can destroy cartilage tissue as well as promote water retention in the cartilage found in joints, making it more elastic.
Joint Rejuv contains bromelain and yucca. Bromelain is an enzyme that helps to inhibit pro-inflammatory compounds, reducing pain and swelling. The properties of yucca, that help in arthritis, are due to the plants content of steroid-like saponins, which are precursors to natures cortisone. Joint Rejuv also contains the minerals manganese, copper, zinc, selenium and bioflavonoids, which assist in rehabilitating damaged joints and reduce inflammation.
