Why does Synovi G4® not contain chondroitin?
Synovi G4® is based on the proven joint support matrix found in Synovi G3® which contains Perna canaliculus, also known as Green-lipped mussel, found off the coastal waters of New Zealand. Perna is a rich source of chondroitin as well as omega-3 fatty acids.
Why did Bayer choose the combination of Boswellia and Turmeric?
These two ingredients were added because they are not commonly found in traditional joint supplements and are known for a variety of health benefits. A growing body of evidence indicates that both Boswellia and Turmeric may be beneficial in the support of healthy joints, including cartilage and connective tissue, as well as a healthy inflammatory response.
How can I use Synovi G4®?
Synovi G4® can be used as a stand alone product or in coordination with Free Form™ and/or Alenza® Soft Chews for additional supplemental support.
