Glyco-Flex® products are safe formulas for the support of joint and connective tissue functions in cats at any stage of life.
Glyco-Flex® I Feline contains brand GlycOmega™ Perna (Green Lipped Mussel) to optimize support of your cat’s joint function‚ while at the same time providing the building blocks necessary for the normal metabolic pathways that support joint structure‚ function‚ and comfort.
GlycOmega™ Perna canaliculus from New Zealand is from an exclusive source available only to Vetri-Science® Laboratories. Perna is an edible species of shellfish that has been freeze-dried in a concentrated powder. It provides many constituents necessary to maintain healthy connective tissue as well as support the cellular processes required for injured or aged joints. Perna is rich in amino acids‚ naturally chelated minerals‚ essential fatty acids‚ glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and vitamins all of which work together to support joint structure and function. GlycOmega™ Perna contains all major classes of GAGs including Chondroitin Sulfates and Hyaluronic Acid that occur in connective tissue such as joint cartilage‚ tendons‚ ligaments‚ and synovial fluids. The perna used in our Glyco-Flex® products is time-tested and cost effective!
DMG is naturally produced in the body. It can support physical and mental energy levels and efficient oxygen utilization in tissues. DMG acts as an antioxidant to protect the joints.
Glucosamine has been shown to support the production of glycosaminoglycans within the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. As cats age‚ there is a decrease in the production of GAGs‚ which can result in joint stress‚ thinning of synovial fluid‚ and breakdown of connective tissue. Glucosamine also supports bladder and urinary tract health by improving the integrity of the mucosal lining.
MSM is a source of organic sulfur. It supports the structure of joints and connective tissue. Increased availability of MSM is linked to greater comfort and mobility‚ as well as the support of collagen production.
Manganese is an essential mineral for the formation of collagen‚ GAGs‚ and proteoglycans‚ all of which support required cartilage integrity. A lack of Manganese can lead to inefficient production within the joints.

Overall Rating for Glyco-Flex I (Cats) - 45 Chewable Tablets
from St. Louis, MO
Surprised kitty takes em.....
My cat crunches this right up ---- which surprised me because it is not exactly small in terms of *kitty-appropriate-size*. She is not that finicky though with kitty-related stuff so maybe a more selective cat would turn her nose up at this pill. Vertri-science supposedly meets the requirements of standards set forth by the NASC regarding submitting their products for audits and quality control standards so that is a plus for me. Cannot say how effective Glyco-Flex I is.....I am only using it preventatively as my kitty has no current health issues -- even at age 9. But she still deserves an extra push which is why I bought Glyco-Flex I!
Price --- and the fact that my kitty eats them on her own
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

ease of good taste
We were considering people nutrients on our finicky cat but toss Glyco-Flex in her dried food and shell eat it first. No force feeding or mixing and they are priced decent. It remains to be seen how effective they are but it takes time.
