DISC AID™ contains Bovine Tracheal Cartilage, a source of Chondroitin -4- and -6- Sulfates (glycosaminoglycans)—found in high concentration in the spine and intervertebral discs. This synergistic formula helps to support healthy functioning of connective tissues in the spine and discs.

Especially created to support back disc health. This Chondroitin-rich formula is designed to help with spinal disc problems, fractures, spondylosis deformans, and certain back problems to which specific breeds may be prone. Disc Aid is a remarkable formulation of 14 synergistic nutrients offering unique and powerful support to connective tissues and promotes healthy functioning of the spine. Disc Aid starts with bovine tracheal cartilage, a source rich in Chondroitin -4- and -6- sulfates (glycosaminoglycans)--found in high concentration in the spine and intervertebral discs, they are essential for repair and synthesis of connective tissue. Then we add Manganese sulfate, Silicon, Vitamin C,Calcium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc, Taurine and L-serine (essential amino acids) to create a synergistic formula that helps lubricate and regenerate the tissues that make for a healthy back and discs. Disc Aid is recommended as a longer term therapy (3 weeks to 3 months) on a saturation basis, because the glycosaminoglycans provided need to build up in the system in order to work properly. Bovine Tracheal Cartilage (200 mg) is an excellent, naturally rich source of glycosaminoglycans, especially chondroitin -4- & -6- sulfates that work specifically to support and maintain healthy intervertebral discs. ). Glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) are the principal components of cartilage and synovial fluid found in joints. They also make up connective tissues like collagen, tendons, and ligaments. Because GAGs are so fundamental to the maintenance and formation of connective tissue, they are often referred to as the "glue of life". Manganese Sulfate (100 mg) helps maintain the optimal structure and elastic nature of connective tissues, including those of the intervertebral discs. Damaged or degenerative tissues, deficient in chondroitin sulfates, require additional sulfate for improved hydration. Manganese sulfate provides the additional sulfate necessary for the metabolism of chondroitin sulfates. Disc Aid? provides manganese in the sulfate form to help the body produce more of its own chondroitin sulfates. Equisetum Arvense (horsetail rush) (10 mg) is an excellent source of the essential trace mineral, silicon, involved in the formation of bone and other types of connective tissue. Silicon is also an important constituent of glycosaminoglycans. Vitamin C (100 mg) enhances GAG metabolism and aids in the production of collagen. Vitamin B6 (10 mg) is involved in the formation of certain proteins. It aids the nervous system and promotes normal functioning of the musculo-skeletal system. Vitamin D (30 IU) aids in absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract and assimilation for bone formation. Magnesium Sulfate (50 mg) plays an important role in neuromuscular contraction. Damaged or degenerative tissues, deficient in chondroitin sulfates, require additional sulfate for improved hydration. Magnesium sulfate provides the additional sulfate necessary for the metabolism of chondroitin sulfates. Disc Aid? provides magnesium in the sulfate form to help the body produce more of its own chondroitin sulfates. Calcium (100 mg) builds and maintains bones. Zinc Sulfate (5 mg) is involved in the healing process. Damaged or degenerative tissues, deficient in chondroitin sulfates, require additional sulfate for improved hydration. Zinc sulfate provides the additional sulfate necessary for the metabolism of chondroitin sulfates. Disc Aid provides zinc in the sulfate form to help the body produce more of its own chondroitin sulfates. Taurine (50 mg) is a biological source of sulfate. L-Serine (30 mg) is an amino acid that links the glycosaminoglycan structure to the protein portion of connective tissue. Pectin (100 mg) is a buffering agent for Vitamin C and provides bulk.
