Active Ingredients

Active Ingredient Why it is used
Chondroitin Chondroitin is essential for the resilience of cartilage by maintaining the resistance to compression. It also aids the repair and formation of connective tissue.
Collagen Collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the body’s tissues with their firmness and strength. Referred to as the “glue that holds the body together”, it is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.
Curcumin Curcumin is the active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.
Glucosamine Glucosamine gives cartilage its strength, structure and shock absorbing qualities. It is involved in the formation of tendons, skin, bone and ligaments and is found in high concentrations in connective tissue and cartilage.
Glutamine (Glucose Fermentation) Glutamine is a protein derived amino acid that supports the natural immune response and is essential for gut wall integrity.
Hemp Oil DerivedOmega 3 Fatty Acids Hemp oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the dog to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils, but are crucial for the health, fertility, condition and performance of the animal.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) MSM is a source of natural organic sulphur. Sulphur is found in high concentrations in joints and helps to form cross links with other molecules that maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissues.
Vitamin C Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues in mammals. It directly affects the level of tissue growth, development or repair after injury so is crucial for healing and the body’s immune system.


For all of the above active ingredients to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the dogs’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Active Ingredient Why it is used
Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.
Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants
Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.
Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans
Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.
Oatinol - Polar Lipids Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.

My beagle is nearly 7, he has quite a sensitive stomach. I have been giving him yumove for the last 2 weeks but have had to stop as it is causing him discomfort and it makes his stools very soft. I was wondering if this would be a better product for him

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The answer is that you would have to try it to find out. Generally none of these products upset the digestion, but some dogs as you say are easily upset. You should allow a gap between them both, then make sure that you are very consistent with the normal diet, then see what happens if you try it. All should be well, but it is impossible to guarantee. They are different products with reasonably different ingredients, so there is no real reason to think that this one will cause problems.

Strength of glucosomin

3rd Oct 2015
lynn

I have flexidog chews with a glucosomin content of 600mg per chew. What is the equivalent amount of glucisomin in one measure of joint aid?

  • Marketing Assistant

Hi Lynn

The man at GWF has told me that "Glucosamine is included at 2%, so on a 10gm (one measure) inclusion, it will provide 200mgs."

Hope that helps.

Expiry date?
