Canine Joint Support
Phycox Soft Chews by Dechra is a safe and natural joint
relief and health support supplement for all dogs. Phycox is a one dose daily

PhyCox One 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) Inhibition – 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 activity.
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. Also helps improves coat condition.
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 ingredients.
The PhyCox formula also contains a special blend of antioxidants (300
mg) to inhibit the destructive activity of free radicals.
