Some of you may be wondering what happened with the Glyco Flex® Plus Challenge. Back in mid-September, Chester started the 30-day challenge – take Glyco Flex Plus for 30 days and see what happens.
Glyco Flex Plus was made for dogs that are showing signs of slowing down and having a harder time getting around (i.e. helps “crotchety” senior dogs)…. of which Chester is one. Sort of. He is still pretty spry for an old guy.
We kept you updated on social media but then you didn’t hear anything after the initial 30-day period. Well, Chester has continued to take Glyco Flex Plus since September. He has been taking it for almost 3 months now.
I’ll be honest, he isn’t acting like he is 5 again. Although I can hope, I know that’s an unrealistic expectation though. The best you can hope for with a joint supplement is a bit of improvement in mobility and stiffness. Your dog won’t become a puppy again.
I DO think that Chester is moving around a bit easier these days. He’s not as quite as stiff when he gets up. He’s also got a little more giddy-up in his step on our walks. He’s not lagging behind and, in fact, is trying to out-run Gretel sometimes.
I DO think Chester needs to be on a joint supplement to help hold off any additional degradation of his joints. The joint supplement of choice for us is going to be Glyco Flex.
Glyco Flex is one of the best joint supplements I have found. The new Glyco Flex® Plus contains a whole lot of helpful stuff besides just glucosamine, chrondroitin, and MSM – the standards for joint supplements (and, by the way, it has higher levels of this stuff than most supplements). It also contains antioxidants such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E, C, and grapeseed extract. The part I was most excited about is the high levels of DMG-containing perna (green-lipped muscle). You can read more about the company that makes Glyco Flex, FoodScience Corporation, and DMG here but, basically, DMG helps the body produce large amounts of antioxidants.
The Glyco Flex Challenge has ended but you can buy Glyco Flex Plus (affiliate link) for less than $13 per month (for small breeds). If you have a senior dog, or any dog showing signs of slowing down and having a harder time getting around, I highly suggest that you try Glyco Flex Plus to see if it makes a difference.
