Green Grown® Glucosamine
Glucosamine an amino sugar, commonly found as ingredient in joint supplements to promote healthy, well-lubricated cartilage. Usually, glucosamine is derived from the exoskeletons of crustaceans and shellfish, but Green Grown® Glucosamine is produced from the fermentation of plant tissues to create a totally plant-based glucosamine so identical to glucosamine obtained from animals that standard testing methods can't even tell them apart. The efficacy of glucosamine may be enhanced by combining with chondroitin.

Phytodroitin™  Chondroitin
Chondroitin is a polysaccharide found in cartilage, ligaments and connective tissues in animals and used in joint supplements, typically in conjunction with glucosamine, to provide nutritional precursors for cartilage and joint fluid. Phytodroitin™ is a plant-based chondroitin alternative created from a blend of sea vegetable (sea lettuce / Ulva lactuca and rockweed / Fucaceae fucus vesiculosus) extracts. Extracts from these plants not only provide the same building blocks as chondroitin, but also bring on board their own potential health benefits.

Turmeric and black pepper
Turmeric is a spice derived from the root of the Curcuma longa plant that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine. Curcumin, a component of turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties that have been compared to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. There is evidence to demonstrate that turmeric can be beneficial in mitigating pain from osteoarthritis and increasing joint function. One of the challenges, however, with using curcumin as an anti-inflammatory agent is the low bioavailability - most of the curcumin in ingested turmeric stays within the gastrointestinal tract (where it does also have excellent local anti-inflammatory activity). This can be improved by adding black pepper - the piperine component in black pepper aids in the absorption and can increase the amount of curcumin that is actually systemically absorbed.    

Algae oil
Marine oils are concentrated sources of EPA and DHA, conditionally essential fatty acids. In growing puppies, EPA and DHA are required for normal neural development, while in adults, EPA and DHA provide anti-inflammatory support and are beneficial for heart and kidney health and function as well as reducing pain and inflammation around arthritic joints. While fish oils are the traditional source of EPA and DHA, algae oil has been demonstrated to be safe and efficacious supplementation for dogs - after all, algae is where the fish obtained it from in the first place!

Transition Tips

Gradual transition is the key to a successful transition.

Start by mixing 1 part of new food and 4 parts of old food.

During the next 2 weeks, gradually increase the amount of new food to 100%.

Older pets and picky eaters may need longer time and extra care to completely switch.

Digestive Enzymes can be used to harden up stool during transition.

Nutritional Yeast has a cheesy flavour, which cats and dogs love.

Provide ample water to cats and dogs, and especially male cats due to their urinary anatomy.

Water aids with digestion and helps to avoid urinary issues. Water flushes out pathogens, heavy metals, and harmful drugs. 

Soak dry kibble in water to make moist food with 1:1 ratio (1 part kibble to 1 part water), and wait for at least 30 min before serving.

Use distilled water whenever possible.

Incorporate wet canned food for better hydration. Mix wet food with dry kibble to increase moisture level.

Use an electric water fountain to entice pets to drink more water.

Care Instructions

Store in a dark, cool place, tightly sealed.

For canned food: after opening, remove remaining leftovers and put into an airtight container for up to 3 days, keep it in the fridge. It can also be portioned out and frozen for later use or served as a frosty treat!

Brush your furry friends' teeth regularly.

Offer dental treats after moist food or add several dry kibbles to help scrape off the plague.

Monitor pH of your pet's urine - more info on this page.
