We’ve been eagerly awaiting this challenge for some time. Well, it’s finally here!
What is GlycoFlex® Plus?
It’s one of the best joint supplements I have found. The new GlycoFlex® Plus contains a whole lot of helpful stuff besides just glucosamine, chrondroitin, and MSM – the standards for joint supplements. It also contains antioxidants such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E, C, and grapeseed extract. The part I am most excited about is the high levels of DMG-containing perna (green-lipped muscle). You can read more about the company that makes GlycoFlex, FoodScience Corporation, and DMG here but, basically, DMG helps the body produce large amounts of antioxidants.
GlycoFlex Plus is made for dogs that are showing signs of slowing down and having a harder time getting around (i.e. helps “crotchety” senior dogs). Joint supplements can help the pain and inflexibility of joints with arthritis. In the case of the GlycoFlex Canine hip & joint supplement, it is clinically proven to increase hind leg strength by up to 41%.
However, Your dog doesn’t have to be crotchety and old to use joint supplements. Many people use them preventatively in dogs without any, or severe, signs of pain or trouble moving around (in fact, my acupuncturist lectured me on the importance of using a joint supplement preventatively for myself because, even though I do already have a bit of pain, it will help keep things from getting worse). A lot of people I know with highly active dogs – dogs that hike, do dock diving, do flyball, etc. – give their dogs joint supplements.
So What is the GlycoFlex Challenge?
The GlycoFlex Challenge is your opportunity to see how GlycoFlex Plus hip & joint supplement can strengthen your dog’s hind legs. The idea of the challenge is that you observe your dog before taking GlycoFlex, give it to them for 30-days, and then look for the changes. When you sign up for the challenge, you get a FREE 30-day supply of GlycoFlex Plus to try.
There are 5 simple steps to the challenge:
- Take a video of your dog which shows* hind leg weakness or mobility challenges before GlycoFlex. (*Although Chester’s back leg sometimes gives out on him, I wasn’t able to capture it on video so I just took a video of him climbing the stairs. I really wish I could have caught his leg giving out so I am going to keep trying).
- Visit GlycoFlexChallenge.com to sign up, upload your video, and request your free GlycoFlex.
- Give your dog GlycoFlex every day for one month according to the directions on the package.
- Take a video of your dog after completing one full month of GlycoFlex (take the video in the same way as your “Before GlycoFlex” video).
- Go online to upload your “After GlycoFlex” video and answer questions about how your dog is doing. (Your dog will become a star if they choose your videos to show online and in their advertising!)
Our GlycoFlex Challenge
Chester is still pretty spy for 13 years old. I’ve definitely noticed signs of him slowing down this past year or so though. It started when he stopped being able to keep up with all of our brisk walks. Then I noticed that he was slower to get up from the dog bed and stiffer when walking to the back door. Now his back leg sometimes gives out when he is hopping or climbing, causing him to slip or stumble. I am hoping that I see less of that stuff after 30-days of giving him GlycoFlex Plus.
Of course, when it came to my video, I couldn’t capture his leg giving out. Those things never happen on queue you know? I tried several times but finally just settled for a video of him climbing the stairs. This is the “before” video I submitted for the challenge.
He looks like he doesn’t have any trouble, right? Honestly, I don’t know if I will be able to capture any differences before and after GlycoFlex on video. I will notice it myself though and will share what I see with you. I’ll check in with you mid-month about how it’s going and then share the “after” with you in 30 days.
It’s more fun to do these challenges in a group. We would love it if you took the challenge side-by-side with us and shared your experience. Get your video today and sign up here. Please let us know if you sign up by commenting on our Facebook page or in the comments below.
