The primary ingredients for CSG’s products are polysaccharides — hyaluronan (HA), also known as hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate, AO-Biotics®, and beta-glucans derived from mushrooms.
Hyaluronan is a naturally occurring biomacromolecule produced in all mammalian tissue and fluids. Known for its hydrophilic and space filling characteristics, HA also has several health-boosting properties. It is directly or indirectly involved in every physiological function in the body. Injury, aging and/or disease are the primary reasons for the natural decrease in HA concentration and molecular weight and make hyaluronan supplementation desirable. Without proper levels of HA, mammals experience discomfort, reduced mobility, loss of tissue hydration, and/or other unwanted signs of aging.
CSG’s proprietary oral ingredient, MHB3® Hyaluronan, has been scientifically proven to be bioavailable, absorbed, efficacious, and safe. It confers greater and more consistent results than any other product in both short- and long-term care. MHB3 has been awarded seven U.S. Patents.
AO-Biotics® is BioZyme’s research-proven, natural prebiotic designed to boost animal resilience to challenges.
Beta-glucans are scientifically proven biological defense modulators that help potentiate the body’s immune response. Scientific research establishes a supportive effect for beta-glucan administration against immune challenge in a number of hosts.
CSG has developed products based on MHB3 Hyaluronan, AO-Biotics®, and beta-glucans for companion animals, horses, and humans.
