Synoquin EFA is a non-prescription, natural joint supplement for dogs designed to help aid mobility by providing the body with the building blocks it requires to grow and maintain joint cartilage.
Synoquin contains Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Acetyl D-Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Ascorbic Acid and Zinc Sulphate. Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Acetyl D-Glucosamine are both amino sugars that help create and stimulate new cartilage growth. They also aid the release of Glycosaminoglycans, which are made from glucose by the cartilage cells.
Acetyl D-Glucosamine can also aid and support the connective tissue.
Chondroitin attaches itself to collagen for tensile strength and control of water content. It draws fluid to the cartilage molecules which helps to nourish and lubricate joints.
Chondroitin also helps absorb shock. Ascorbic Acid is a natural antioxidant, while Zinc Sulphate provides your dog’s diet with a little extra zinc.
Synoquin EFA Capsules also include Omega-3 Essential fatty acids, proven to be beneficial in canine joint health management. SYNOQUIN® EFA contains a purified Krill Oil, Dexahan, which is rich in Astaxanthin – the most powerful antioxidant in the carotenoid family.
