Arthritis - Pain Relief - Ultrasound and Synflex
Arthritis strikes both humans and their pets, and can be very debilitating, causing pain, limping and can limit mobility. We recommend a diet which maintains a healthy body weight to lessen stress on afflicted joints, and the use of Syn-flex, liquid glucosamine, along with fish oil or Omega 3 DHA. We also recommend and supply small portable Therapeutic Ultrasound machines for relief and healing stressed or damaged muscles, and arthritis. They work extremely well for both humans and pets, and are very well priced.
Synflex for Pets and humans has been reported to show significant improvement for most users. Synflex has no reported serious side effects.
Synflex is a high quality liquid Glucosamine formula.
Synflex ® is a liquid glucosamine to help with osteoarthritis, joint pain, and cartilage degeneration. While most Glucosamine products available today are in capsule or pill form, the liquid Glucosamine found in Synflex ® provides maximum absorption and is helpful in the treatment of osteoarthritis and eases articular joint pain.
The liquid Glucosamine Sulfate combines with ten other synergistic ingredients, like chondroitin, boswelain, yucca, and omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids to name a few, in a formula designed to :
There are eleven ingredients in Syn-flex®, all working synergistically to help manage osteoarthritis, assist in rehabilitating damaged cartilage, to help promote healthy joints, and help to reduce inflammation.
Syn-flex® contains liquid Glucosamine sulfate and HCL, shark cartilage containing 20% chondroitin sulfate, boswellin, yucca powder, manganese ascorbate, bromelain, vitamin C, omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and vitamin A.
The special Syn-flex® formula combines a powerful synergistic mix of ingredients into one product.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar produced from the shells of chitin (shellfish) and is a key component of the extra cellular matrix of cartilage. Glucosamine works to help stimulate joint function and repair.
Our bodies produce Glucosamine naturally. However, as we grow older we lose the ability to produce sufficient quantities. Having enough Glucosamine is essential to producing the nutrients we need to produce synovial fluid. It is this fluid which lubricates our cartilage and maintains healthy joints.
When you have a Glucosamine deficiency, cartilage may harden and bone spurs may develop which leads to deformities in the joints. Your mobility may become limited and in short, this is how osteoarthritis develops.
A breakdown of one 1/4 oz. Synflex serving - Certified Ingredients Per 1/4 oz. of Synflex :
These ingredients work together and may assist in providing relief.
Glucosamine - is a charged sugar molecule that is a key component of the extra cellular matrix of cartilage. It absorbs and releases water with each step, thereby acting as a shock absorber for the joints. With more Glucosamine, there is more joint protection. It is the essential and principal ingredient that determines the quantity of proteoglycan (water-holding) molecules that are formed in the body. The proteoglycans are large, water-binding molecules made up of (both) proteins and sugars. These are a major building block of healthy, vital cartilage. Glucosamine also stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAG's) which are important proteins found in cartilage. They serve to "bind" the water within the cartilage matrix, slowing the deterioration of your joints, and easing your pain.
Shark Cartilage - provides a source of chondroitin Sulfate (20%) which works synergistically with Glucosamine and may help to assist in rehabilitating the cartilage that is damaged in your body.
Chondroitin Sulfate - Chondroitin Sulfate is a naturally occurring component of cartilage that aids in the lubrication and cushioning of joints. Chondroitin also provides structure and flexibility to your joints.
Manganese Ascorbate - is a mineral that enhances the effectiveness of both Glucosamine and chondroitin Sulfates and synthesizes the production of healthy cartilage. It is essential for a healthy immune system and aids in the production of mucopolysaccharides, which are critical for maintaining healthy joints.
Yucca - Yucca may have anti-inflammatory properties.
Bromelain - helps to inhibit pro-inflammatory compounds which reduce pain and swelling. Unlike aspirin, bromelain does not inhibit the production of prostaglandins, essential to healthy joints.
Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids - Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids act as anti-inflammatory agents. Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA, DHA, and ALA) are found in fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna, halibut, anchovies, and rainbow trout and soybean oil, flaxseed oil, and walnut oil. Omega-6 fatty acids (lineolic acid) comes from various common vegetable oils. The body converts lineolic acid into GLA which can help reduce joint inflammation.
Boswellin - has been used for centuries in the Indian Ayurvedic system of medicine to maintain healthy joints. Boswellic acids may help to improve blood supply to the joints and maintain the integrity of blood vessels. Boswellin may help to reduce swelling and improve mobility where individuals experience stiffness in the joints.
Vitamin A (Beta Carotene) - is essential for growth and repair of body tissues and it also aids in bone formation, and at the same time protecting against deterioration.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) - mobilizes your body's self-defense mechanisms that in turn, assist your immune system in overcoming disease. It is also a powerful antioxidant required to produce collagen, which is the main supportive protein in cartilage, tendon, and connective tissue. Collagen is the protein that "holds our bodies together" and is critical to the structure and integrity of healthy joints and also protects against bone deterioration.
Vitamin E (Tocopheral) - is an antioxidant that may help to protect red blood cells and unsaturated fatty acids from oxidation damage. It also assists your body in maintaining healthy membrane tissue.
Ultrasound therapy for Humans and Pets.
Ultrasound is a physical therapy treatment for tendon and ligament injuries. It also helps to control the pain connected with arthritic joints. Human physical therapy modalities have employed it for 20 years. Extensive research confirms its benefits. It allows tendon injuries to heal more rapidly, and it promotes collagen fiber formation to maximize the long term ultimate tensile strength of the tendon.Research shows it is equally effective when used on our Pets.
Ultrasound (acoustic energy) simulates cellular activity by increasing cellular protein synthesis. Its high frequency sound waves cause mechanical vibrations that micro massage at a cellular level. Ultrasound effectively treats joint conditions and soft tissue injuries, as well as chronic conditions. It promotes healing of sores and surgical wounds by improving vascularization, decreasing swelling and resolving them with minimal fibrosis.
Conditions which can benefit from ultrasound therapy are:
Ultrasound Benefits for your Pet(s)
The heating and massaging effects of therapeutic ultrasound have 2 primary benefits. First, it increases blood flow in the treated area to speed the healing process. Second, it reduces swelling which is the main cause of pain.
Use ultrasound to administer therapeutic medicines into the body. There are 3 main benefits to a treatment; the first two from the massaging effect of ultrasound; and the third from administering the medication. This is a process known as phonophoresis. Ultrasound with phonophoresis is rapidly becoming more popular than ultrasound therapy by itself.
The basic principal behind therapeutic ultrasound is a gentle heating and massaging of the tissue within your pets body. The natural response to this increased stimulation is to promote blood flow and reduce painful swelling. The reduced swelling relieves pain and the increased blood flow brings nutrient rich blood and oxygen to the area to promote healing.
