Arthroplex helps cats and dogs maintain healthy joint mobility. It also relieves occasional soreness and stiffness and supports healthy cartilage. Although there are many joint health products available on the animal health market, it is extremely important to have high-purity ingredients that are readily absorbed, especially in an older companion animal with limited intestinal function.
The unique, high-purity ingredients in ThorneVET's Arthroplex meet both criteria. Arthroplex combines the proven joint support activity of glucosamine sulfate with other cartilage-supportive ingredients, including the botanicals Boswellia and curcumin. Boswellia's efficacy works by inhibiting the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus down-regulating pro-inflammatory reactions. The curcumin in Arthroplex supports a healthy inflammatory response and is the same well-absorbed curcumin phytosome found in CurcuVET®. Bromelain – a protein-digesting enzyme complex from pineapple – stimulates fibrinolytic activity and inhibits thromboxane A2, which helps to down-regulate pro-inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins.
