Indication:

For musculoskeletal disorders in dogs, as an adjunct treatment for lameness, pain and possible limited mobility.

In case of injury or inflammation of the connective tissues (bone, cartilage, joints, etc.), as well as after various orthopaedic surgical operations or other painful joint lesions, the administration of N.P.C.S. FORTFLEX is recommended as an adjunct treatment to shorten the recovery period.

In ageing dogs, the wear and tear on the joints with age leads to pain and reduced joint mobility. It is therefore recommended to take the product daily in case of pain.

 

WARNING! If there is no pain, daily use of N.P.C.S. FLEXI is recommended for the general protection, support and strengthening of bones, cartilage, joints and muscles.

31-45 kg (68-99 lbs) body weight: 1.5 scoop / 3 heaped teaspoon (5,01 g)

For extra small (under 5 kg / 11 lbs) animals: ⅓ scoop / slapped teaspoon.

Boswellia extract:

Frankincense has been used for thousands of years for anti-inflammatory, analgesic and joint inflammation relief. Frankincense contains special joint-protective substances that reduce joint swelling, improve blood supply to inflamed joints and increase mobility. These substances strengthen cartilage and bones and reduce oedema. Frankincense has a beneficial effect within a short time, especially in cases of joint stiffness and pain.

Devil’s claw extract (Harpagophytum procumbers):

It is a typical plant of the Kalahari desert. Its roots and decoction made from the roots were also used by indigenous people to relieve fevers and pain, to alleviate migraines and to treat wounds.

It reduces pain intensity and sensitivity to pain, and improves spine and joint mobility. It inhibits cartilage-damaging enzymes (metalloproteinases, elastase), has joint-protective effects and is a potent antioxidant with digestive stimulant properties.

Lactoferrin (in increased amount):

Lactoferrin and bone health

It is known from numerous studies that lactoferrin promotes bone health in humans, dogs and all mammals. This protein has also been shown to be effective in supporting bone growth and increasing bone density. Lactoferrin is able to increase the activity of bone-building cells (osteoblasts) and can also inhibit bone-degrading cells (osteoclasts). With the help of lactoferrin, the bones are able to bind and store calcium (minerals), thus acting as a “mineral store” in the body.

Lactoferrin and joint health

It has two effects on joint health: it stimulates cartilage formation and it is an effective anti-inflammatory.

Cartilage formation: Cartilage is found in a myriad of places in the human and mammalian body: at the ends of bones as a component of joint surfaces, attached to ribs that form the rib cage, and in the intervertebral discs. Cartilage is made up of cartilage cells and the intercellular material (collagen and proteoglycan gel) that surrounds them. When the cartilage breaks down, the cartilage cells are unable to perform their function properly and clinical symptoms (e.g. joint pain) appear. Lactoferrin plays an important role in regulating the metabolism of cartilage cells, supporting their healthy functioning.

Reducing inflammation: Lactoferrin is present in large amounts in immune cells (neutrophil granulocytes), from which it is released in areas of inflammation. It is effective in reducing inflammation by inhibiting the synthesis of inflammation-inducing substances (IL-6, TNF) and stimulating the production of anti-inflammatory substances (IL-10)

Other beneficial properties of lactoferrin

In humans and most mammals, lactoferrin is best known as a transport molecule, but it also has numerous other functions. Lactoferrin has its own binding sites (receptors) in the digestive tract, which it interacts with to ensure the binding and absorption of metals, most importantly iron, from the intestinal tract.

Research over the past 30 years has demonstrated the beneficial effects of lactoferrin on the immune system, reproductive organs, digestive system and, last but not least, the bones.

Glucosamine sulfate:

It is a building block for cartilage production and promotes the regeneration of damaged joints. It slows down, inhibits and stops the process of cartilage erosion, and improves and maintains the viscosity of synovial fluid.

Fish oil:

Arthritis can cause unpleasant symptoms, including constant pain. Numerous studies have shown that fish oil, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, is highly effective in reducing the discomfort caused by arthritis, as well as the inflammation itself. It has been observed that with regular use of fish oil, joint stiffness can also be eliminated and treated.

Arthrosis, a disease in which cartilage is worn away, is much more common than rheumatoid arthritis. It usually occurs in older animals, but is often diagnosed in young ones as well. There is no definitive cure for the disease and the many drugs we use to treat the condition can have countless side effects. However, clear improvements in arthrosis, including reduced pain, reduced swelling, and reduced joint stiffness, have been reported in numerous scientific articles when administering omega-3 supplements.

MSM:

Its beneficial effects on joints have long been known. A form of organic sulphur, it is an essential source for the body to produce enzymes, antibodies, connective tissue and mucous membranes. It is also necessary for the formation of amino acids and for maintaining the molecular structure of proteins.

Ascorbic acid:

Everyone thinks of water-soluble vitamin C as the main protector of our immune system; nevertheless, bones need it too. It is essential for the formation of collagen, an important component of supporting and connective tissue, which is the basis of bone mineralisation (vitamin C deficiency can damage collagen in bones).

Turmeric:

Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory herb, particularly effective in arthritis for relieving stiffness, soothing pain, and reducing inflammation in the skin and intestines.

Turmeric is very effective for joint and rheumatic complaints because it relieves joint stiffness, keeps joints flexible, strengthens cartilage and reduces oedema. It has a detoxifying and analgesic effect. It also protects cartilage from damage and should be used in cases of arthrosis.

Hyaluronic acid:

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance with a high water-binding capacity that is found in muscles, bones and skin.

It helps to reduce friction on joint surfaces and ensures the flexibility and mobility of joints. Because its high water-binding capacity, it also ensures optimal water content in the skin and connective tissue.

 

Bromelain:

Bromelain is a protein-degrading (protease) enzyme naturally found in tropical pineapple, which occurs in highest concentration in the stem of the fruit.

Since 1957, a mixture of enzymes found in pineapple has been used for medical purposes because it reduces tissue oedema and greatly aids tissue and muscle regeneration and accelerates wound healing. Bromelain also supports the entire body’s defence system, boosting the production of many immune cells.

 

Cobalt:

Vitamin B12 is a relatively large molecule that is very similar to the heme-macro molecule found in red blood cells (of a similar orange-red-yellowish colour), but with a central cobalt atom (hence the name cobalamin), instead of the central iron atom found in haemoglobin. Other biologically active derivatives of this molecule are also called vitamin B12 or cobalamin. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in the functioning of the brain and central nervous system and in the process of blood formation. It also plays a role in cellular metabolism, is involved in the formation of nucleic acids, influences protein synthesis in the body, promotes the incorporation of amino acids into proteins and enhances their utilisation.

 

Zinc:

Zinc is one of the minerals that should be used in small amounts, but are essential for the proper functioning of the body of small animals. Zinc contributes to bone health and can also promote bone mass growth.

Zinc is essential for new cell formation and wound healing. Zinc deficiency can reduce the rate of wound healing and increase the risk of wound infections.

 

Vitamin E:

Vitamin E functions as a fat-soluble antioxidant, protecting vulnerable fatty acids from oxidation, also known as rancidity. Excessive oxidative stress and free radical formation have been linked to a wide range of diseases, and vitamin E is key to counteracting these processes.

Manganese:

The benefits of manganese for the body.

It contributes to the synthesis of DNA and RNA. It is necessary for reproduction and growth. Contributes to the development of healthy bones. Manganese plays a major role in the skeletal system, development of healthy bones and proper nerve function.
