Prosamine® is an affordable joint supplement designed to provide the nutrients needed to build healthy joint tissue. It provides many of the basic building blocks used in connective tissues, such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Prosamine contains bioavailable glucosamine HCl and glucosamine sulfate, plus scarce amino acid important for collagen synthesis.
Glucosamine, through its increased availability, stimulates the chondrocytes in the cartilage to make more hyaluronic acid that goes into the ground substance of the tissue, building a wetter, plumper cartilage and providing lubrication. Studies also show that glucosamine will lead to the production of more glycosaminoglycans, which are then incorporated into proteoglycans. These protoglycans in the cartilage hold water and give it its shock-absorbing properties. The results are improved joint flexibility, function and comfort accompanied by greater mobility. In addition to the high concentration of glucosamine, Prosamine® also incorporates hydroxyproline, which is a scarce amino acid not often found in other joint products. Hydroxyproline is crucial for joint tissue synthesis and repair.
Main ingredients: Glucosamine HCl, Glucosamine Sulfate, Hydroxyproline, Manganese, Vitamin C, Zinc, Calcium, liver and garlic flavors
Q: Why not just buy glucosamine from health food stores or local discount stores?
A: There are many sources and choices for glucosamine products. However, it is important for veterinarians and their clients to know that quality ingredients, which are safe for animal use, are present in the amount shown on the label. Prosamine® is competitively priced and tested by an independent laboratory, so your clients can afford a veterinary product and get the quality assurance too.
