Flavocin Ingredients

Flavocin is powerful blend of micronutrients shown to effectively fight joint problems AND oxidative stress in the bodies of aging animals.

Flavocin has extensive scientific support and its micronutrients have been tested in well-controlled clinical studies. Flavocin contains compounds extracted from natural sources and is not a pharmaceutical or prescription drug.

Known by several trade names such as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), or bioflavanol, or flavan-3-ol, it is hailed as the most potent, natural antioxidant compound ever discovered by science and this active ingredient in Flavocin has been awarded United States Patent 4,963,527. Bioflavanoids are water-soluble antioxidants that are part of a group of natural pigments. Many scientific studies on Bioflavonoids have demonstrated the substance’s wide range of qualities. Bioflavonoids are naturally occurring substances thought to preserve a normal environment in the walls of the small blood vessels. Bioflavonoids are present in all fruits and vegetables and has anti-allergy properties of the kind that actually prevent allergic reactions rather than treat the symptoms. Bioflavonoids possess antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and antioxidant activities, and may therefore be useful in preventing and/or treating a wide variety of conditions. Bioflavonoids work in sync with vitamin C to preserve and protect capillaries, promote circulation, lower cholesterol levels, and prevent allergic reactions in your dog.

Note: The Bioflavanol ingredient in Flavocin is sourced from Grape/Raisin Seed Meal.

Glucosamine HCl
Glucosamine is a building block for cartilage that is formed when glucose combines with an amino acid. Glucosamine HCl is a form of Glucosamine and is particularly useful in healing connective tissue in your dog. It can repair the damage caused by arthritis and aid dogs with joint pain by lubricating the cartilage around the damaged joints. Glucosamine is often taken in combination with Chondroitin. Dogs who suffers from arthritis, or joint pain caused by injury or strain can benefit greatly from Glucosamine HCl intake. Glucosamine supplementation helps your dog’s body manufacture collagen and proteoglycans, which are essential for rebuilding joints. Because glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate (see below) are proven to work synergistically for your dog… the total effect of the combined ingredients is greater than each of them individually.

Note: The Glucosamine HCl ingredient in Flavocin is derived from Dried Shellfish Digest.

Chondroitin Sulfate
Chondroitin Sulfate is necessary in the production of cartilage. Proteoglycans, a vital component of cartilage tissue, is produced by Chondroitin. Chondroitin attracts water to the proteoglycans and holds it there, which is important to maintaining health joints. It also protects existing cartilage from premature degeneration by blocking certain enzymes that destroy cartilage and prevent nutrients from reaching the cartilage. When used in conjunction with glucosamine it is much more effective.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps maintain and build collagen—the structural fibers found in your dog’s cartilage and is essential for healthy bones as well as healthy joints. It works as an antioxidant helping to preserve joint tissues from free radicals helps treat arthritis by strengthening the capillary walls in joints. Vitamin C helps prevent other vitamins from being “oxidized” and helps wounds heal, strengthens blood vessels, builds connective tissue, healthy gums, skin and promotes strong teeth and bones in your dog.

Zinc is an antioxidant involved in the healing process and is involved in the synthesis of your dog’s bone tissue, healthy skin, and disease resistance. Zinc is an essential mineral that is found in almost every cell in your dog’s body. It stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your dog’s body. It is also important for a healthy immune system and for healing cuts and wounds. Essential for normal growth, development and immunity. Keeps reproductive organs functioning and helps in the perception of taste and the ability to see at night.

Cysteine is derived from three different amino acids and is a potent antioxidant that works synergistically with glutathione in the liver to detoxify waste from your dog’s metabolism. It binds to toxic heavy metals to help eliminate them from your dog’s body. Many of these heavy metals are dangerous as they accelerate aging and the onset of degenerative diseases. This amino acid has also been found to increase hair growth by increasing the diameter of hair shafts.

Along with Vitamin C it works to stimulate joint tissue and strong bones in your dog. Calcium is essential to the proper development of bones and teeth, and is involved in numerous enzymatic reactions which produce energy. It is necessary for healthy muscle functions such as muscle contraction and relaxation. Calcium also regulates heart rhythm and activates enzyme systems which induce blood clotting, and it has the ability to promote healing. It is one of the most essential major biochemical elements needed in your dog’s nutrition. Every organ in the body needs Calcium. It is stored in the blood and teeth, as well as in the nerves, muscles and tissues. Calcium promotes tone, power, strength, longevity, vitality, endurance, rapid wound healing, and helps regulate metabolism. It is easy for your dog’s body to become Calcium deficient because it is used in almost every function. When the diet is inadequate, Calcium is one of the first elements to go out of balance. Calcium raises your dog’s resistance to viruses, parasites, bacteria, and cancer.
