are basic components of the articular cartilage, in synergy they can therefore
contribute to the maintenance of its elasticity and are therefore useful in case
of osteoarthritis, a pathological condition characterized, among other
disorders, by joint stiffness.
BioCELL® - HYDROLYZED CHICKEN STERNAL CARTILAGE with high concentration
of collagen, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate. Helps improve comfort and
65% collagen II

10% hyaluronic acid
BioCell collagen® is produced using a patented hydrolysis process, which
optimizes the molecular size of collagen, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin
sulfate for fast and effective absorption.
BioCell collagen® provides building blocks of macromolecular collagen,
hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, essential for the health of
cartilage, synovial fluid and connective tissue of ligaments and tendons SELENIUM,
VITAMIN E and VITAMIN C:
vitamin E and vitamin C -
also exert an antioxidant action; in particular, vitamin C also contributes to
normal collagen formation.
An innovative blend for exclusive use in the Dogoteka veterinary line, which
brings together naturally derived components extensively studied and validated
by international scientific literature in a balanced and synergistic form.
Protrixan® is a mix made up of dry extract of Garcinia cambogia, Garcinia
mangostana powder with antioxidant action and Turmeric powder, which supports
joint function and also has an antioxidant action.
OIL - Enhanced
formula with the addition of fish oil.Contains
fish oil, a well-known source of polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega 3
series. Polyunsaturated fatty acids are molecules consisting of a carbon chain
with a final carboxylic group and a final methyl group. The carbon chain has
both simple and double bonds: unsaturated portions.
Omega 3 fatty acids, as well as omega 6, are defined as essential fatty acids
because the body is not able to synthesize them and therefore these nutrients
must necessarily be taken with the diet. Polyunsaturated fatty acids, in
particular EPA and DHA, have been recognized as having known health properties,
first of all the beneficial action at the level of heart function, blood
pressure and blood cholesterol levels.

JOINTS SUPPORT AND CARTILAGE WEAR PROTECTION FOR DOG AND CATS IN ADULT AGE.
and CHONDROITIN SULFATE - it is called glucosamine sulphate and the
result of Italian research is the substance that has shown - for the first
time in the world - to intervene on the process of 'wear and tear' of the
joints both in older dogs and in dogs that practice sports. Normally in the
body, glucosamine is present in the joints, synovial fluid, tendons,
ligaments and muscles and is synthesized by glucose In some situations where
there may be a deficiency of glucosamine produced naturally by the body, a
'exogenous contribution through eg. the intake of complementary feeds. The
administration of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate to puppies and large
or elderly dogs can be particularly useful for strengthening and
chondroprotection of bone and cartilage structures. Glucosamine from
exogenous intake is obtained from the hydrolysis of chitin, obtained from
the shells of some crustaceans (marine exoskeletons). Chondroitin sulfate,
as well as hyaluronic acid, belongs to a family of heteropolysaccharides
called glycosaminoglycans or GAGs. They, in the form of proteoglycans, form
the basic substance of the extracellular matrix of the connective tissue.
Chondroitin sulfate is made up of repetitive linear units consisting of N-acetylgalactosamine
and D-glucuronic acid. Chondroitin sulfate is found in cartilage.
Chondroitin sulfate, especially in combination with glucosamine, can promote
and therefore maintain the structure of cartilage (chondroprotection).
In particular - attracts water into the cartilage tissue. Articular
cartilage is not a vascularized tissue; the nutrients are supplied to it
through a liquid called synovial fluid, or synovium, which, in addition to
supplying this tissue, also has a cushioning function, that is, to reduce
friction between two bone ends. Synovial fluid consists mainly of water,
hyaluronic acid and glycoproteins, therefore hydration of the synovial fluid
is of fundamental importance.
OF GARCINIA MANGOSTANA - garcinia mangostana is a typical fruit of
various areas of South East Asia. In the late 1990s, scientists isolated the
Xanthones from the Mangosteen fruit. The class of xanthones, polyphenols
derived from Benzo-y-pyrone, has many properties, the most interesting are
represented by the high antioxidant power of gamma mangostin. Garcinia
mangostana acts as a joint protector.
COLLAGEN® - it is a mixer of substances: type II hydrolyzed
collagen, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, essential amino acids.
Collagen, the main protein of connective tissue, is essential for
structuring the joints, tendons and ligaments. Type II collagen is the most
common type of collagen found in joint cartilages and accounts for 80-90% of
the total collagen content. Biocell collagen contains hydrolyzed collagen,
obtained using a patented technology that allows the extraction of a high
percentage of collagen II, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate,
essential components of the body's structure. This hydrolyzed collagen is
formed by a molecular structure that allows for prompt assimilation.
