MAXIMUM STRENGTH/FULL SPECTRUM
The standard treatment regimen for joint pain and inflammation for animals includes the use of cortisone-containing drugs and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as, rimadyl, etogesic, metacam, phenylbutazone (bute) and aspirin . These drugs help to manage the pain, but do not come without serious side effects. Cortisone can cause cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, liver disease, thyroid suppression, osteoporosis, bone necrosis, peptic ulcer and lowered immunity to disease. The side effects of NSAIDs include vomiting and diarrhea, gastrointestinal ulcer, liver and kidney disease and failure and bone marrow suppression. In addition, there is evidence that long-term use of cortisone and NSAID drugs actually damages the joints and accelerates the progression of joint deterioration. In contrast, EZ MOTION is a natural, effective alternative free from undesirable side effects.
99% pure Glucosamine sulfate is a major ingredient in EZ MOTION. Glucosamine sulfate is the preferred and most effective form of glucosamine . It is the only form that has been used in over 300 scientific investigations and in over 20 double-blind studies and is registered as an aid in arthritis in over 70 countries.1 In animal and human studies, Glucosamine sulfate has been shown to have an absorption rate of up to 98% when orally administered.2 Glucosamine sulfate is a building block of skin, eyes, bones, connective tissue and joint cartilage . Connective tissue forms the tendons of muscles and the ligaments of joints, while joint cartilage covers the articular surfaces of bone, preventing bone from rubbing on bone. Glucosamine sulfate is also a source of glycoaminoglycans which are essential components of cell membranes, cell surface proteins and structural molecules that hold cells together.
Glucosamine sulfate is crucial to the strength and integrity of the joints and is a major contributor to the production of hyaluronic acid , a chief cushioning component of the joints. Scientific studies indicate that decreased glucosamine production plays a part in the development of arthritis. On the other hand, these studies show that the administration of glucosamine sulfate acts to normalize cartilage metabolism, inhibits its breakdown and stimulates its growth so that joint function is partially restored.3 Glucosamine sulfate has also been found to exert an anti-inflammatory action unrelated to the mechanism by which cortisone and NSAID drugs work and exhibits no negative side effects. Chondroitin sulfate is composed of repeating units of glucosamine with attached sugar molecules. Chondroitin sulfate and Glucosamine sulfate work together to promote joint health.
Collagen peptides are another key ingredient of EZ MOTION. Collagen peptides are crucial components the body uses to build and strengthen cartilage.4 They also help to prevent the disintegration of the cartilage complex , to stimulate the restructuring process and to support nutrient and energy consumption by the cartilage tissue. BOSWELLIA extract (containing 65% Boswellic acids) is included in EZ MOTION to improve the blood supply to the joints, to restore the integrity of blood vessels weakened by prolonged physical stress and to decrease pain and inflammation . It has been shown to be especially effective in reducing both acute and chronic pain and inflammation, including edema and arthritis. Many veterinarians are incorporating BOSWELLIA into their treatment protocols. I.L. Jaques, D.V.M., of Seattle, has reported considerable improvement among both cats and dogs suffering from arthritis.5
White Willow Bark, Ginger Root, Yucca extract and Turmeric Root extract are other crucial components of EZ MOTION that act to help decrease joint and muscle pain and inflammation while increasing circulation. Vitamin C and MSM (organic sulfur), nutrients essential for joint function, are also included in EZ MOTION. Vitamin C and MSM are involved in the production of collagen and help maintain connective tissue health. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant as are Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin E which help prevent cell destruction and aging. Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese and Copper are crucial for building and maintaining strong bones.
L-Proline and L-Lysine are amino acids which are components of the collagen matrix and are also needed for joint health. Bromelain, Papain and Trypsin are proteolytic enzymes which act to inhibit the production of compounds that cause inflammation, swelling and pain . And lastly, the Anti-Inflammatory Herbal Complex 1™ is a special therapeutic herbal base which consists of a combination of specific herbs demonstrated to aid in the relief of joint inflammation and to promote increased joint flexibility and stamina.
All of the ingredients and flavors in EZ MOTION are of the highest quality, free of chemicals, synthetic preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, colors or sucrose. MANN FORMULATIONS contain Human Grade ingredients which are the highest grade ingredients in terms of purity and potency. They are far superior to feed grade ingredients . In addition, all of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients used in MANN FORMULATIONS PRODUCTS are in their most absorbable form.
