      Q: What is PernaTec™ Green Lipped Mussel (GLM)?

      A: Perna canaliculus, also known as Green Lipped Mussel, is harvested from the pristine New Zealand waters of the Marlborough Sounds, a series of sheltered waterways at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. PernaTec™ GLM utilizes the whole mussel (minus the shell), and stabilization of the powder is achieved through a combination of low temperature freeze drying and specialized pre-processing application of a highly effect antioxidant blend. This approach protects the sensitive omega-3 oils from oxidative deterioration, leading to maximum joint support benefits.

      Q: What is Boswellia serrata?

      A: Boswellia serrata, also known as Indian frankincense, is a large branching tree native to India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. The tree’s resin contains boswellic acids, which have been shown via various mechanisms in the laboratory to help contribute to a healthy inflammatory response.

      Q: What is Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)?

      A: MSM is a sulfur-containing compound that is a vital building block of joints and cartilage. It has been shown in the laboratory to help contribute to a healthy inflammatory response.

      Q: When is the use of Instaflex® Advanced Joint Health Chews for Dogs suggested?
