It’s a fact that sadly, joint conditions in dogs are very common.
So given the fact that we understand how important an issue this is for dog owners - especially as joint mobility issues are amongst the top 3 health concerns vets see…
We thought, hey, why not help you understand the benefits of a few natural ingredients that have been shown to help support dogs of all ages and conditions with mobility and stiffness issues.
Let’s begin with two MAJOR nutrients that we consider a POWERHOUSE, which can help ease your dog’s joints:
Green-Lipped Mussels & Curcumin
Green Lipped Mussels - are a species of mussels typically found in New Zealand. Now, what many don’t yet realise is that these little mollusks are absolutely packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids! Yes, these are the same omega-3’s found in fish oils - like Salmon Oil, except green-lipped mussels contain other important joint-loving compounds too that help target stiffness and early warning signs of joint wear.
You probably didn’t know this, but they’re also a natural filter of sea-water and so therefore, retain large amounts of nutrients and minerals! Aside from containing huge amounts of omega-3 fatty acids...they also contain glucosamine and chondroitin along with various vitamins, essential amino acids, antioxidants and minerals, too.
The main benefits for your dog’s joints, include -
- They support connective tissue
- Maintain healthy hip flexibility
- Promote a normal and healthy rate of cartilage production
- Help maintain healthy bone and joint function
Turmeric Curcumin - Curcumin is the active compound that comes from turmeric root (yes, the same as we find abundantly in Asian cooking) which acts to help manage inflammation in dogs (and humans). Not only this, it contains properties that are also anti-fungal and antibacterial, too.
It’s become a central ingredient in canine joint care supplements to help them regain quality of their life if they’re showing signs of slowing. Not only this, Curcumin helps initiate a normal inflammatory response to help support their immune system which is also linked to improved digestive health!
Incredible benefits your dog could enjoy, include -
- Supports connective tissue health for stiff joints
- Can help maintain healthy joint and bone function
- Supports a normal immune system response
Both of these key “wonder” ingredients, among several more, can be found in Buddy & Lola’s Bouncy Bones joint supplement.
