Herbsmith Soothe Joints Â® is useful for dogs experiencing discomfort from everyday activities. Complimentary and compatible with glucosamine products like Sound Dog Viscosity. Maintenance of healthy joints requires proper functions of the joint capsule, cartilage on the bone endings and viscous joint fluid. Maintaining the joints of an active dog is paramount to a healthy life. Herbsmith Soothe Joints Â® assists in the maintenance of healthy joint capsules and in the preservation of thickened joint fluid. Herbsmith Soothe Joints Â® is complimentary and compatible with glucosamine products - a step beyond glucosamine supplementation. It has all natural herbal qualities that maintain normal movement. Chinese Theory: From a Chinese perspective, joint discomfort is the result of an obstruction of the flow of energy, or Qi (pronounced âcheeâ), through the tissue of the joint and an invasion of external pathogenic factors such as wind, cold and damp. This obstruction and invasion may occur due to many factors including trauma, prolonged exposure to wind and damp, overuse of the limbs, poor genetics, etc. To maintain healthy joint function, Chinese theory recommends a combination of herbs that moves blood and Qi within and around the joint and expels pathogenic factors. By reestablishing the flow of energy within the joint, normal motion is maintained.
