Joints are constantly undergoing normal remodeling through a process of “wear and repair”. It is the damage to the “cartilage matrix” that allows elbows, hips, and other joints to become weak and to lose elasticity, resulting in compromised joint health. However, while degradative forces are at work, other cells are rebuilding the same cartilage.
A Powerful Triple Blend of Nutraceuticals! The key to achieving success with any nutraceutical depends on each ingredient's purity, strength, and efficacy in combination with one another. Wholistic Run Free uses a proven synergistic blend of MSM, chondroitin, and glucosamine that has been proven effective in repairing, strengthening and preventing damage to cartilage, the main holding force between joints:
Glucosamine is a natural building block of cartilage that helps ease joint pain and arthritis. What's more, it actually helps rebuild cartilage something traditional NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) pain relievers cannot do. This ingredient also influences production of hyaluronic acid, a main constituent of synovial fluid, the lubricating liquid between joints that allows bones to move smoothly past each other.
Chondroitin helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. As joints move, enzymes are released that digest cells in the articular cartilage, eventually destroying it. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it. Our chondroitin is derived from shark cartilage, not bovine cartilage. Its angiogenesis inhibiting ability allows healing to occur, while helping to prevent calcification in joints.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), a natural source of dietary sulfur, is critical to maintaining the elasticity and flexibility of the connective tissue in joints. MSM has also proven to be very effective in controlling symptoms of joint discomfort.
Wholistic Run Free is rich in EPA and DHA, natural anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, including Ester C® all of which contribute to unparalleled support for joint health.

"My 12 year old sheepdog has a heart condition and the cardiologist would not give me any prescription arthritis drug for his stiffness. My groomer suggest Run Free and after being on it three weeks, I saw an amazing improvement. He no longer needs my help to get up. Even the cardiologist has seen the improvement and said she will start suggesting this to her other cardiac patients. Don't hesitate to try this for your dog. I can't say enough good things about it. I buy the one pound jar and it lasts me four months. My husband wants to know if it comes in a human formula!" (Posted on 1/8/14)
"Our 12 year old Yorkie, Bubba, was showing signs of hip pain and was walking very slow and compensating by only using 3 legs. We had to pick him up & down from the sofa and bed. After being on this product for 1 month, he no longer limps, shows no signs of hip pain and runs and jumps like a puppy. It has been an amazing transformation for Bubba. We will definitely keep Bubba on this product." (Posted on 10/11/13)
"I have a 7 yr old Flat coat Retriever who I adopted after her owner passed away about a year ago. One of her back legs seemed "weak" so I asked the pet store about glucosamine and run Free was suggested. Pricey but I thought I'd give it a try. Dog has been doing well, we walk @4 mi/day, but when I was going out of town a month ago the store was out so I thought that I would try some tablets. Just before I left someone mentioned that her leg looked stiff, but I figured it was nothing. Wrong!! When I returned 10 days later, the dog was limping horribly. We had to practically carry her into the house last Friday. The tablets had all been used Run Free was back in stock and after one day of being the quietest dog I have ever seen the Run Free kicked in and the dog started returning to normal. In less than a week she has returned to her 7 going on 2yr old typical frisky Flat coat behavior-these are the dogs that never grow up. The change is both shocking and dramatic and the only thing that changed was the reintroduction of Run Free-simply magic-thank you (Posted on 10/4/13)"
