Sashas Blend Joint Powder for Dogs 250g
Sashas Blend™ is now one of the best researched joint health treatments in the world!!
The unique all natural Sashas Blend™ formula possesses anti-inflammatory actives which reduces inflammation in a non invasive method with no side effects. It promotes the growth of healthy cartilage and conditions the joints by helping maintain the fluid (known as Synovial Fluid) that cushions joints. The Synovial fluid is important for healthy joint function as it provides lubrication to the joint, supplies nutrients to the cartilage, provides impact protection for the joint and removes waste from the cartilage. Sashas Blend™ also suppresses the production of Nitric Oxide which is a major chemical produced responsible for pain and the breakdown of a healthy joint.
Sashas Blend™ also contains the full range of GAGS (glycosaminoglycans) including Keratin, Dermatin, Heparin sulphates and the commonly known Glucosamine & Chondroitin sulphates which provide the necessary nutrients required to stimulate healthy joint function.
