Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center

    1. Can Fido or Fluffy make it as Vegetarians? (part 1)
    In the past, we have talked about the importance of diet for pets dealing with arthritis. This is a very important issue and one that many pet owners do not address properly. That is not to say that they don't care, it is more a question of understanding what works best for your pet particularly if they are arthritic or have joint-related issues.
    2. Hip Dysplasia
    We have discussed issues about the use of liquid glucosamine for pets suffering from arthritis. This time, I would like to focus a little more on hip dysplasia and steps that can be taken to deal with this often complex issue.

What are you waiting for?

By J. R. Rogers

Arthritis is my business. And, in the course of that business I am constantly reading articles that give me ideas and thoughts to pass along to you. Of course, information is very important to you as a consumer and we led the way on the internet.

Arthritis is always going to strike

It is a foregone conclusion that at some point in your life you will have arthritis. And, it can strike very early in life or it may wait many years to do so. It really does not matter when it strikes. It is a very painful and it can be debilitating.

Heading off arthritis

Some articles I was reading were discussing pets. Of course, the parallels are there without even having to look. Humans and pets (or, any mammal) has a nearly identical body structure and arthritis affects all.

This group of articles was talking about standard lab testing that we all undergo at some point in time. But, what they focused on was the fact that too many wait until they have negative news. Well, that is something I have been saying for many years. Given the severe consequences of arthritis there is no reason to wait.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

As you all know, we make a product called Syn-flex®. It is a liquid formula that has other beneficial ingredients that target the joints to maintain good health. After all, that is our goal, isn’t it?

Most health issues are like arthritis. When you seek to “prevent” and “deter” the problem before it begins it seems to me that you are well ahead of the game. And, it is pretty well acknowledged clinically that the use of Glucosamine products like Syn-flex® do act in a preventative role. (Our Chondroitin is taken from Shark Cartilage for safety reasons)

I like to think of it as providing a little “oil” to the joint structure much like an ailing automobile. The development of arthritis is such that there is no valid reason not to do something about it.


A sound diet with plenty of anti-oxidants is key to maintaining healthy joint structures too. There is a sufficient anti-oxidant mix in Syn-flex® but if you want to take extra precautions do it. When is there “too much” of a good thing?

And, I am very big on getting some exercise. Most doctors will tell you that even the most senior of us can benefits greatly from just thirty (30) minutes of exercise three (3) times a week. Is that too much to ask when there is so much at stake?

For the relatively inexpensive cost of using a powerful pharmaceutical-quality product like Syn-flex® when weighed against the possibility letting your joints suffer the choice seems very easy to me.

See you next time.
