Glykan® Compact Tabletten

Product information "Glykan® Compact Tabletten"

FORTAN Glykan Compact for dogs and cats - green-lipped mussel extract for healthy joints

The anti-inflammatory properties of the mussel Perna canaliculus, which only grows in the waters of New Zealand, were only discovered in the mid-70s.
Since then, the mussel has been used in food supplements for humans and animals.

Animal studies have further underlined the beneficial effects of the green-lipped mussel's components.

  • Mussel extract from New Zealand
  • Strengthens cartilage, tendons and ligaments

Three important ingredients

Green lipped mussel extract contains three important components that are necessary for healthy joints: Glycosaminoglycans (GAG), Omega-3 fatty acids (especially DHA, EPA and alpha-linolenic acid) and a unique phosphorylated glycogen molecule.

Each substance on its own has been shown to be an important element in promoting healthy joints. In combination, these three substances exhibit a synergistic effect that accounts for the anti-inflammatory phenomenon, exceeding the sum of the effects of the individual substances.

Green-lipped mussel powder is also an excellent supplement to glucosamine and chondroitin for joint problems.

Mussel flesh extract with unique building substances

The many building materials (vital substances) contained in mussel flesh extract are unique.

In addition to the GAG (glycosaminoglycans), the mussel extract contains 10 different minerals, 18 L-amino acids that are extremely important for the organism, omega-3 fatty acids, enzymes and trace elements for the nutrition of connective tissue and cartilage.

  • Since neither cartilage nor connective tissue are supplied with blood, these tissues must be nourished in a different way.
  • This is done by diffusion, a movement of fluids, between synovia (synovial fluid), cartilage and connective tissue.
  • A prerequisite for this is that sufficient synovia is available and sufficient water is stored in cartilage and connective tissue.
  • Glycosaminoglycans serve as water reservoirs in cartilage and connective tissue, are thus responsible for the shock-absorbing function of the joints and help to form new synovia.

They also rebuild missing cartilage and stabilise the ligaments and joint capsule.
