Why PrimeVal Gelatinaat?
For maintaining healthy cartilage, flexible tendons & ligaments and strong bones.
PrimeVal Gelatinaat promotes the lubrication of the joints by increasing the production of synovial fluid, thus ensuring healthy and resilient cartilage. Moreover, it strengthens your dog's tendons and ligaments. It ensures your dog will remain supple until it reaches an advanced age.
PrimeVal Gelatinaat is also an essential supplement for pregnant bitches.

What PrimeVal Gelatinaat ® is and is not
PrimeVal Gelatinaat ® is regularly being compared to other joint supplements. However, in Australasia, there is no comparable product on the market.
PrimeVal Gelatinaat ® is NOT a tonic or a multi vitamin supplement.
PrimeVal Gelatinaat ® is a food supplement that benefits the WHOLE musculoskeletal system because of the unique composition and combination of the two Collagens: Collagen Hydrolysate & Collagen Type II
Gelatinaat ® and Gelatine
Connective tissue is formed from collagen fibers of which there are several types present in the body. Tendons, ligaments and bones are build up from Collagen Type I, skin and blood vessels from Collagen Type III and base membranes from Collagen Type IV. Cartilage consists largely of Collagen Type II. The latter is very important and a strong component against inflammation.
Collagen, the protein substance forming the connective tissues, has a very specific amino acid composition. Compared to other protein structures, the protein structure of Collagen has a large amount of proline and glycine incorporated. Dogs can manufacture these two amino acids themselves although it requires a lot of energy to do so. During periods of growth or when in heavy work dogs might be unable to produce sufficient amounts of these vital amino acids.
Gelatine Hydrolysate is a very good source of the amino acids proline, glycine and arginine, which form the amino acid spectrum of Collagen in the cartilage matrix. The high-grade pharmaceutical gelatine hydrolysate in PrimeVal Gelatinaat® has a high absorption rate (95%) as compared to the single amino acid proline.
Collagen hydrolysate is a special gelatine. It does not swell and has little effect on the digestive process as compared to ‘normal’ or ‘bakers’ gelatine, which for the same purpose, would require substantially larger quantities and would cause digestive upsets.
