Wholistic Run Free™ is a synergistic blend of proven nutraceuticals that provides superior joint support. Wholistic Run Free™ exclusively targets joints and their supportive structures. It can be used in conjunction with Wholistic Joint Mobility™ for dogs requiring more joint support or used alone. Wholistic Run Free™ can also be adjusted according to an individual dog's needs.
Joints are constantly undergoing normal remodeling through a process of “wear and repair”. It is the damage to the “cartilage matrix” that allows elbows, hips, and other joints to become weak and to lose elasticity, resulting in compromised joint health. However, while degradative forces are at work, other cells are rebuilding the same cartilage.
Chondroitin Sulfate (Shark Cartilage): Chondroitin sulfate helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. Shark cartilage, which is primarily composed of chondroitin sulfate, is best known for its anti-angiogenesis properties. Without inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in the joints, calcification occurs and the body becomes unable to heal damaged joint tissues. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it. Our shark cartilage is obtained exclusively from legalized fishing methods. 1,080 mg
Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCL (shrimp and crab): A natural building block of cartilage. It influences the production of hyaluronic acid, a main constituent of synovial fluid that lubricates joints and allows bones to move smoothly past one another. In healthy pets, the body is able to synthesize a sufficient amount of its own glucosamine to keep the existing cartilage healthy, but when an animal ages or there is damage to the joint cartilage, the body may not be able to produce enough to keep up with the body’s increased needs. 1,000 mg
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane): A rich source or sulfur, which is required for most body functions. Sulfur is the fourth most abundant nutrient in the body and is stored in nearly every single cell with the highest concentrations being found in the skin, hair, nails, cartilage, and joints. The sulfur found in MSM is functionally and structurally important to 150 compounds within the body, including tissues, antibodies, enzymes, and hormones. Because mineral depletion of the soil is an on-going concern, dietary sources such as meat, eggs, and fish may not be adequate for maintenance levels and certainly are not adequate for therapeutic levels. 800 mg
Total Omega-3 Fatty Acid: Organic Flaxseed helps promotes normal cell functioning and the production of hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism, cardiovascular, and immune health. 282 mg
Total Omega-6 Fatty Acid: Organic Flaxseed helps promotes normal cell functioning and the production of hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism, cardiovascular, and immune health. 76 mg
Calcium Ascorbate (Vitamin C): Ester-C® is a patented form of Vitamin C that is “body-ready” and found to be four times more readily available to body tissue than basic Vitamin C. There is an increased demand for Ester C® during times of stress such as heavy exercise or injury. Being an important constituent of connective tissue, Ester C® also serves as a chondroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and immune responsive substance. Ester-C® is very easy on the stomach lining. 30 mg
Organic Flaxseed: A rich source of essential fatty acids, Omega-3 & Omega-6. Flaxseed promotes normal cell functioning and the production of hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism, cardiovascular, and immune health.
