Swedish Animals Apoteket Sports contains MSM, vitamin C and amino acids:
BCAA 2: 1: 1
What are amino acids?
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that make up all life and can handle all the body's functions.
Proteins build cells and repairs tissues. They can also form antibodies to combat bacteria and viruses.
A missing amino acid is a missing building block.
Amino acids through food
Amino acids can not - as e.g. fat - stored in the body. This requires a continuous supply.
A good diet with the right composition is a basic prerequisite.
However, since all the essential amino acids must be supplied in the proper amount and at the same time is often not enough food and many dogs
eat today is much too monotonous diet.
Access to amino acids leads to more muscle protein
Constantly going on protein breakdown and protein synthesis (formation of protein) in the animal's body.
The difference between the degradation and the formation of protein in muscle is sometimes called muscle protein balance.
By giving the animal amino acids can enhance protein synthesis further, leading to an even more positive muscle protein balance.
If the animal's protein balance, on average, has been negative for a day so it has been broken down more protein than it is formed, but if the protein balance has been positive, it has formed more protein than has been degraded.
Dogs that exercise heavily at risk of not getting enough of amino acids (proteins) from the feed without this it must be added alto give the animal meat, chicken or fish every day.
Dogs will perform, hunting, running, swimming, etc., require more protein than usual, otherwise there is considerable risk of wasting / muscle stud.
Accepted claim protein.
Protein helps maintain muscle mass.
Protein helps to increase muscle mass.
Protein helps maintain normal bone structure.
MSM is a sulfur compound that the body uses to repair and create new cells. By supplementing the diet with MSM, to fill the dog's sulfur storage and get a fitter and more healthy animals. MSM is considered to be positive for the joints and muscle building and faster recovery.
Approved claims for vitamin C:
Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation that affects, blood vessels, bone and cartilage normal function.
Vitamin C contributes to normal energy metabolism.
Vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.
Vitamin C helps to protect cells against oxidative stress.
