If your buddy doesn't seem as spry as he used to be, he may be experiencing some pain and stiffness in his joints -- particularly the hips. This discomfort is common as dogs age, and it's why we wanted to make a Functional Food Topper with Glucosamine to address it.
Glucosamine is an amino acid that aids in the production of joint lubricants and shock absorption for healthy cartilage and joints. It's a natural chemical compound found in the body -- human and canine -- but it also comes in the form of a supplement.
In addition to Glucosamine, sweet potato and chicken are an important part of our Hip & Joint Food Topper formula. And here's why ...
Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene. This powerful antioxidant not only helps reduce the risk of certain types of cancer and protects against heart disease, it is instrumental in fighting inflammation.
Sweet potatoes also contain amino acids, which aid in building muscle mass that may have lessened with age and lack of exercise due to joint pain. Amino acids increase antioxidant activity in the body, which fights cell damage that contributes to a number of conditions. Sweet potatoes are also loaded with fiber; vitamins B6, C and A; and potassium, calcium, and iron.
Chicken is a great source of lean protein. Itís also a good source of Omega 6 fatty acids, essential amino acids and glucosamine (yay!). Beyond its rich protein content, chicken also contains vitamins B12, B6, and B3; and Zinc, iron, copper, phosphorous and selenium.
