Treat the Symptoms and Causes
Specifically Designed to Treat the Symptoms and the Causes of Joint Problems
While most prescription drugs can help with the symptoms of joint problems—like pain and inflammation—they don’t help to treat the causes of joint problems. And the main source of your dog’s joint problems is the destruction of cartilage—the soft, spongy, shock-absorbing substance that covers the end surfaces of bones where they come together and form joints.
Unlike drugs, the ingredients in Flavocin™ have been shown to be effective in helping both symptoms AND causes of joint problems. Referred to in the medical world as “chondroprotectives”, research shows that these active ingredients perform a remarkable four step process that may help dogs with arthritis and hip dysplasia by:
1. REDUCING joint pain and inflammation in dogs with arthritis
2. PROTECTING cartilage from further damage
3. REPAIRING and RESTORING damaged cartilage and joint tissue in arthritic dogs
4. Stimulating the growth of NEW cartilage in dogs with joint problems
In addition, Flavocin contains both of the proven ingredients of glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate. And that’s very important… especially when you consider that many other ordinary “joint formulas” usually have one or the other, but not both.
So, why is it important that an effective arthritis and joint formula contain both? Because current research studies show that glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate work more effectively together than individually.
To support this, results from the ACVS Veterinary Symposium Small Animal Proceedings stated, “Providing both compounds together is therefore more beneficial than supplying either separately.” (Anderson M, Slater M, Hammad TA)
American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons gives
official “green light” to arthritis ingredient in Flavocin
In a dietary supplement market that is under constant scrutiny by the government and media, there are specific things that you as an intelligent consumer should watch out for.
For example, some ordinary joint formulas may use a less pure form of glucosamine called glucosamine sulfate. But Flavocin uses glucosamine HCl…which is 99% pure. By comparison, the glucosamine sulfate found in ordinary formulas is only 26% pure.
In fact, Flavocin Glucosamine HCl delivers 83.1% active glucosamine while the Glucosamine Sulfate supplies a meager 47.8%.
This means that in order to get the same amount of glucosamine found in Flavocin… your dog would need nearly twice as much glucosamine sulfate!
And recently, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons2 gave an official “green light” to the arthritis ingredient found in Flavocin, writing that it might actually be as beneficial as many widely used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
It is also important to know that Flavocin packs a whopping 500 mg of Glucosamine HCl in each chewable tablet! That’s critical, because recent research shows that to effectively treat joint problems, dogs needs 500 mg for every 30 pounds of their body weight. The majority of joint formulas only have 250 mg of glucosamine—and sometimes even less—in their products! I don’t know about you… but I’d rather not have to give my dog six, seven or even eight pills a day. That’s just a hassle… and probably more expensive too!
Clinical Studies Don’t Lie
Clinical tests demonstrate that the daily use of the key ingredients in Flavocin not only can provide relief from the symptoms of canine arthritis… but they also may help to protect against disease and some of the effects of aging. This is what makes Flavocin so different from many ordinary joint formulas, and so good for your dog.
By combining the patented OPCs in Flavocin with two proven nutrients—Glucosamine HCl and Chondroitin Sulfate—plus Zinc, Cysteine, Calcium, and Vitamin C into one advanced joint and antioxidant formula, relief for aging dogs could be close at hand. Here’s why:
Many scientists now think that oxidative stress and “free-radicals” may be the underlying cause of more than 60 diseases including certain types of cancer, cataracts, and arthritis… as well as the actual aging process itself.
As your dog grows older, fewer free-radical fighting enzymes are produced… creating additional oxidative stress and further damage to your dog. As this happens every part of your dog’s body can gradually deteriorate.
Many doctors and scientists also believe that one of the best ways to fight free-radicals and oxidative-stress is with the use of antioxidants.
Flavocin’s blend of powerful micronutrients and antioxidants have been shown to effectively fight joint problems AND free radicals in the bodies of aging animals.
With a proprietary flavoring technology that makes the chewable tablets “taste just like a treat”… the continued use of Flavocin can help jump-start and reactivate the natural healing process… keeping your dog active, happy, and healthy throughout its life.
1. Improved joint function and flexibility
2. Protection for healthy skin and coat
3. Fewer allergies and hot spots
4. Sharper vision
5. Faster healing and higher levels of energy and endurance
6. Enhanced immune system function
While the many health benefits of Flavocin might seem to be too good to be true… Flavocin’s micronutrient ingredients have been tested in well-controlled clinical studies.
In a 1987 study, Dr. Shinji Uchida and his research team demonstrated that the antioxidant bioflavanols found in Flavocin were up to 50 times more effective than vitamin E as a free radical scavenger.
In the “Review of the Scientific Research on Pycnogenols“, June 1992 H Liers reported, “The results show that the dimeric proanthocyanidins are nearly 20 times more effective than vitamin C at trapping oxygen radicals.”
In fact, to equal the antioxidant properties found in just 3 Flavocin tablets you would need to give your dog… 25 six-ounce glasses of orange juice (vitamin C) and 447 eight-ounce glasses of soy milk (vitamin E).
Research also suggests that the OPCs can increase the total antioxidant capacity and stimulate defenses in the blood. But there’s even more good news.
It is thought that the most dangerous free-radical produced in your dog’s body as it gets older is called the hydroxyl radical. It is so harmful because it directly attacks the DNA—the basic building block of all cells. Research demonstrates that OPCs have the ability to “search and destroy” this dangerous hydroxyl free-radical. And that’s not all.
Research also indicates that the OPCs in Flavocin may even be superior to other antioxidants because the protective effects are multiplied in the body, working in conjunction with other antioxidants by increasing their ability to fight free-radicals. This is due to its ability to “recycle” antioxidants after they have worked to destroy free-radicals, thereby extending the life of free-radical fighting antioxidants.
85.7% of the Dogs Studied Showed Improvement
Still another research report found evidence that the patented ingredient in Flavocin has been found to be effective in fighting canine hip dysplasia.
This active ingredient in Flavocin has been tested in dogs with osteoarthritis secondary to canine hip dysplasia. The study was a double-blind, placebo controlled, 14-week clinical evaluation.
Results of this study have were presented at the 24th Annual Veterinary Orthopedic Society Conference in Montana, The European College of Veterinary Surgeons annual meeting in Versailles, France and the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association Meeting. The results have also been presented at the Voorjaarsdagen Annual International Veterinary Congress meeting in Amsterdam, Holland.
Safe and Natural as Mother’s Milk
Flavocin contains compounds extracted from only natural sources and is not a drug… but rather an all natural formula, and contains no drugs or painkillers.
The OPCs used in Flavocin are natural plant compounds found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, flowers and bark—which means that it is completely safe for your dog… and worry-free for you.
Found in a wide variety of supplements and natural foods, there are no known drug interactions—which means your dog can take it with other supplements or medications… even prescription arthritis medications like like Rimadyl®, Metacam® or Deramaxx®. What’s more, these OPCs have undergone the rigorous testing necessary to meet the standards required by the Health Ministries in France, Germany and other European countries.
In fact, exhaustive research was conducted for the purpose of registering the antioxidant ingredient as a medicine in Europe. The good news is that it is now available in the US as an over the counter product for dogs.
And if that wasn’t enough, wait until your dog tastes it.
Tastes As Good As a “Treat”
Flavocin tablets are a delicious, “bite-size” chewable tablet that tastes so good… your dog will think that it’s a “treat”. In fact, many customers have reported that their dogs come running when they shake the bottle.
Other formulas use messy powders , hard to swallow pills, slimy liquids, or worse yet, capsules you have to open and sprinkle on food just to get your dog to take it. But not Flavocin.
You Can Trust What’s on The Label
Although lots of brands of nutritional pet joint formulas are available… independent lab tests have shown that many products don’t actually contain the amounts that are claimed on the label.
So… how do you know you’re getting what you paid for? Sadly, the truth is sometimes you don’t.
But with Flavocin, you can trust what’s on the label… and what’s in the product. Here’s why.
Because we purchase only the finest raw materials available, your dog is getting the absolute best product that there is. All incoming raw materials are accompanied with a Certificate of Analysis that certifies the content of the ingredients and their purity.
The raw materials are then tested to ensure the Certificate of Analysis is correct and that the product content has not changed since the course of the original test.
Once the materials are blended, they are tested once again to ensure compliance with the label claim before they are made into tablets. At this stage, any variances can be adjusted to meet our rigorous quality levels. Finally, the tablets are tested one final time to ensure the ingredients meet the label claims.
All of our testing is conducted by an independent laboratory and samples of finished product batches are kept to insure that the products maintain their potency over time.
In addition, all manufacturing of Flavocin takes place in an FDA approved facility and complies with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).
Noticeable Benefits for More Than 21 Years
You can feel good in the knowledge that since 1990, the makers of Flavocin have been providing the highest quality nutritional supplements to dogs, cats and horses.
Each product formula has been developed with the aid of a clinical nutritionist and a staff veterinarian. They also work closely with veterinarians across the country that not only use and believe in their products, but also act as opinion leaders.
The makers of Flavocin have invested in long-term research and clinical studies to prove the validity of the products and actively document the visible benefits animals receive when taking them.
