What is Collagen?
Collagen is an ingredient with many health benefits. Collagen is one of the most common types of protein found in both humans and animals. It is present in skin, fur, tissues, ligaments, tendons, bones, and blood vessels. Since collagen is the most common structural protein in the body, supplementing it will stimulate its production, decrease joint pain, and increase bone mass density.
Collagen plays a vital role in replacing dead cells to maintain skin strength and elasticity. It also helps in the development of cartilage tissues, tendons, and keeps joint health intact. Basically, collagen is the ‘glue’ that holds the body together. As mammals age, the production of this complex protein slows down. The result is wrinkly skin, damage to fur, painful joints, arthritis, thinner cartilage and muscle, digestive issues, and many other old-age conditions.
To better inform you of why collagen is a good component to have in your pet’s joint supplement we list six of its health benefits below:
Collagen plays a vital role in ensuring that dogs connective tissues stay flexible. In fact, collagen makes up the majority of their ligaments, muscles, and tendons. When collagen depletes in the body, injuries like hip dysplasia and torn ligaments are more likely to occur. Collagen for dogs can help improve and maintain the integrity of their joint health even before they reach old age.
Collagen promotes mobility in dogs. Your pet will be able to move easier and do more of the activities he or she did when younger. It maintains joint, cartilage, and connective tissue health. And, it also prevents the problems that come with aging like joint pain.
Promotes Healthy Coat and Skin
Collagen for dogs is responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and skin health. The dermis layer of skin in dogs is mainly made of collagen. Supplementing collagen as pets age will improve skin and fur health. Once you add collagen to your pet’s regimen, you will notice the difference. Your pet’s coat will shine, skin and nails will be healthier.
Aids in Digestion
Collagen assists by healing the digestive system thanks to its high glycine content. This amino acid makes digesting food easier for dogs, especially older dogs who no longer chew as well as they did when they were young.
As dogs age, their appetite decreases. This is a big concern for pet owners because when your pet doesn’t eat you won’t be able to feed the nutrients and supplements that he or she requires. Collagen helps encourage the desire to eat in dogs.
Healthier joints is equal to less inflammation. And, this is what leads to comfort and less pain. A clinical study of dogs given collagen for elbow dysplasia had remarkable improvements. Collagen also helps with osteoporosis, a painful health condition that is a result of old age. Many researchers have shown how collagen improves mobility in pets and decreases joint pain.
How Flexpet With Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II Helps Pets in Pain
Lucy was suffering from crippling joint pain, and could not go for a walk without a brace and a hoist. After taking Flexpet with collagen, the results were quite incredible. In just a few weeks Lucy was able to ditch the brace and lift and walk without pain again.
Besides Collagen, What Else is in Flexpet?
In addition to collagen, Flexpet is the only pet product on the market to use CM8 (cetyl myristoleate). This fatty acid was discovered by a researcher at the National Institutes for Health and gives joint pain relief. It occurs naturally in certain mammals blocking the formation of arthritis. Also, it has many other biological functions including anti-inflammatory properties and pain relief. Furthermore, cetyl myristoleate has multiple patents for the treatment of arthritis.
We also include MSM in our formula. MSM is a sulfur compound that occurs naturally in plants and animals. The body needs it to form connective tissue. Studies show it helps reduce inflammation and pain. Another important ingredient in Flexpet is glucosamine sulfate potassium. This ingredient is an amino sugar that helps support the structure and function of joints. It occurs naturally in the body and plays a key role in cartilage construction and the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage.
Other Flexpet ingredients are bromelain which is found naturally in pineapple stems. It reduces inflammation for arthritis and alleviates muscle stiffness and soreness. Vitamin C is in Flexpet to help repair tissue. Furthermore, it can help reduce the degeneration of cells in cartilage and boost immunity and energy. We also include an enzyme blend to aid in digestion and allow your pet’s the body to absorb the larger molecules like cetyl myristoleate.
