The ability to move freely and comfortably is crucial to your companion animal’s well-being. As our beautiful pets grow older, unfortunately aching and stiff joints are often a part of that process just like us. Some breeds need extra support and are simply more prone to these issues.
We've used this supplement with our dogs since 2003. All have been large breed dogs ranging from rottweilers to rescue dogs. One of our rottweilers had hip and elbow dysplasia surgery before he was 1 year old. By the time he was 8, these previous surgeries took its toll on his body and he was having problems getting up and laying back down. It was terrible to see and we started him on Life's Abundance Agility Supplement. Within 6-8 weeks he was able to get up and lay back down without the struggles and whines that came along with that. We've seen excellent results with our other dogs and as I type this we have a 14 year 8 month old large breed mix that has been using this supplement since 2006. This is a supplement that we will never be without for our dogs.
Typical supplements treat the joint as an isolated target. This approach proves inadequate because joints are part of a complex, interdependent system. To effectively address joint health, grain-free Life's Abundance Agility Formula supports the entire musculoskeletal system.
This formula helps maintain healthy joint cartilage and connective tissue, and to aid in the production of healthy synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints. This supplement features Glucosamine, MSM, sea mussels and hyaluronic acid. Agility Formula is a holistic, multi-action joint support formula containing scientifically tested ingredients.
Glucosamine helps maintain and promote joint and connective tissue health. It has been shown to be essential in the healthy development and ongoing maintenance of connective tissue and synovial fluid. Research studies indicate that Glucosamine supports healthy joint flexibility, mobility and lubrication. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a natural source of organic sulfur, integral to many body functions and particularly vital to the maintenance of a healthy musculoskeletal system.
Sea mussels also contain Chondroitin Sulfate, which works in tandem with Glucosamine. And hyaluronic acid (from kollaGen II-xsTM) helps to keep cartilage strong and flexible to better cushion joints.
All of these nutrients work synergistically with the other ingredients in Agility Formula (vitamins E and C, boswellia serrata, alfalfa leaf extract, chondroitin sulfate, manganese and boron) to provide for the comprehensive joint needs of dog or cats, to help maintain the health of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
With no fillers or additives, Life's Abundance Agility Formula has a delectable flavor they’ll love! Join thousands of satisfied customers, and help your companion animals lead a healthier and happier life by purchasing Life's Abundance Agility Formula.
