PhyCox HA Soft Chews
HypoAllergenic Joint Support Supplement for Dogs
Phycox HA is a patented formula offering a natural source
of phycocyanin with proven health benefits. Phycox is recommended to support
joint mobility and healthy bone structure in dogs. Provides enhanced antioxidant
protection and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in a palatable mini soft chew.
PhyCox Soft Chews are formulated with a
synergistic combination of ingredients to help relieve inflammation as part of
normal daily activity. Phycox is a naturally derived extract of wild blue-green
algae grown in the United States. Blue-green algae are a rich source of
phytonutrients including Phycocyanin, a biliprotein that has scientifically
demonstrated health benefits. The Phycox patented process produces a highly
concentrated source of Phycocyanin, offering strong joint support and relief of
discomfort in two ways:
1. Proven Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2)
Recent studies demonstrate the high concentrations of Phycocyanin
found in Phycox specifically inhibit the COX-2 enzyme, blocking the synthesis of
inflammatory eicosanoids, the natural mediators of inflammation in the body.
2. Dynamic Antioxidant –
Phycocyanin has robust free radical scavenging properties. It can help enhance
the body’s defense against the degradative effects of free radicals that cause
cellular damage and play a role in a host of degenerative conditions in dogs.
Turmeric is a natural botanical extract
from the roots of the
Curcuma longa plant with well-researched health benefits. Due to its
ability to inhibit leukotriene biosynthesis and modify prostaglandin production,
Turmeric has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities.
MSM provides dietary sulfur that aids in
the efficient function of cellular membranes and supports healthy muscles and
joints by reducing inflammation.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids help reduce
inflammation by altering the production of inflammatory mediators and support
joint health by inhibiting enzymes involved in cartilage matrix destruction.
In addition to relieving inflammation,
the PhyCox formula offers a joint support matrix for healthy synovial
maintenance as well as bone and muscle support. Glucosamine HCl A precursor for
glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), essential building blocks of cartilage, glucosamine
supports joint health by stimulating GAG production in the extracellular matrix
of cartilage. Glucosamine reduces the activity of inflammatory mediators and
damaging enzymes that can degrade cartilage. Boron Boron is a mineral required
for normal bone metabolism. Boron supplementation increases bone strength and
the mineral content of the bone organic matrix. Through its interaction with
nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D, Boron improves overall bone
metabolism. Creatine Monohydrate A vital amino acid found in skeletal muscle,
Creatine plays a role in muscular energy and may have value in improving muscle
strength, making pets feel more energetic. Antioxidants In addition to potent
protection from oxidative damage offered by Phycocyanin, Turmeric and other key
The PhyCox formula also
