The GlycoFlex® Difference
GlycoFlex® is Clinically Proven Joint Support for Pets
As many as 20% of dogs in North America over the age of one suffer from joint problems, according to a 2020 study.1 While many pet parents may think that joint discomfort is only a concern for senior dogs and cats, joint inflammation and degeneration associated with aging can start much earlier than you may think.
Adding a quality joint support supplement to your pet’s diet can not only support mobility and strength, it may help with joint discomfort associated with aging.
GlycoFlex® Plus combines glucosamine, chondroitin, green-lipped mussel, DMG, MSM, and important antioxidants to support your pet’s mobility and comfort. It’s an advanced joint support supplement for dogs and cats of any age.

GlycoFlex® Features Proven, Effective Ingredients
Perna canaliculus, otherwise known as green-lipped mussel, is the foundation of our formula and nature’s perfect blend for joint support. This New Zealand mussel is a whole-food organism, and a natural source of chondroitin and glucosamine as well as antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. We’ve been trusting it for our pets for over 40 years.
N,N-Dimethylglycine (DMG) supports your pet’s overall comfort and performance by supporting circulation, efficient oxygen utilization, and energy.
A natural component of your pet’s connective tissue, chondroitin sulfates help support the structure and integrity of those tissues to promote joint flexibility and overall mobility.
Glucosamine, like chondroitin, is a critical nutrient for building healthy connective tissue, and is one of the foundational compounds in cartilage.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur compound found naturally in your pet’s body. As an important addition to our GlycoFlex® formula, it supports many bodily processes, including collagen synthesis.
Vitamins C and E, and other nutrients like manganese, selenium, and grape seed extract, play a critical supporting role in helping glucosamine and chondroitin do their job effectively.
These ingredients are all found in GlycoFlex® Plus, an advanced joint support supplement for dogs of any age, as well as in other formulas in our veterinarian-approved GlycoFlex® joint support line. See which product would be best suited for your pet and their unique needs.
