We love the fact that YuMOVE is already supporting over 2 million dogs a year, and is helping so many pets to keep leading their most active lives, for life. We’re also very proud of the fact that YuMOVE Joint Care's clinically proven formula delivers results in just 6 weeks.
But what exactly happens when you first start giving YuMOVE Joint Care to your dog or cat, and it begins getting to work?
Let’s take a look…
YuMOVE is doing its thing
When you first start giving YuMOVE Joint Care to your dog or cat, you may not be able to see the difference in the initial days. But you can be sure that YuMOVE is getting to work on the inside. It’s helping to lubricate and soothe your pet’s joints, which will help to support their joint health and mobility.
When to expect results
As we mentioned at the start of this article, YuMOVE Joint Care is clinically proven to work in just 6 weeks.2 While you may start noticing the effects sooner, 6 weeks is the timeframe to keep an eye on – so it’s important to be consistent and to stick with their YuMOVE journey!
Proven to work2
At YuMOVE, we’re sticklers for getting the science right. That’s why we’ve worked with universities in the UK and New Zealand to investigate this. YuMOVE Joint Care's clinically proven formula delivers results in just 6 weeks.2
At this point, we’d also like to thank Charlie the chocolate lab, the family pet who was the very first to try YuMOVE and declare it a tail-wagging success!
Mobility supporting supplements take time to get to work
You might wonder why your pet needs to take YuMOVE Joint Care for several weeks before expecting to see support. Simply put, this is because our ingredients need to build-up in your pet’s joints over time.
Our different ingredients offer support in different ways - and come together to make a difference in 6 weeks.2 For example, Hyaluronic Acid, which is a major part of synovial fluid and part of our unique formula, helps to lubricate and cushion the joints and has been shown to reach joints within 2 hours.
Ultimately, though, the full YuMOVE difference is achieved by the synergy between our great ingredients, over those first 6 weeks2, and ongoing.
Kickstart the programme with double the amount
That’s why we recommend giving your cat or dog double the usual daily amount of YuMOVE products for the month, and it’s why first-time YuMOVE Joint Care subscribers get a free Daily Double Pack.
During this essential preparation stage, the active ingredients in our supplements build up so they can get to work.
This doesn’t apply if your pet is changing from one YuMOVE Joint Care to another. It’s only relevant if they’re taking YuMOVE for the first time.
The idea is that, by doubling up on YuMOVE for the first few weeks, you'll support the build-up of the active ingredients in your pet’s body.
What’s happening in your pet’s joints?
If you’d like to know more about the science, here’s a quick overview of how all our high-quality ingredients begin supporting your pet’s joint health, when you give them YuMOVE Joint Care.
Green Lipped Mussel
YuMOVE Joint Care is powered by our very own unique and sustainably sourced ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, containing up to 8x the amount of Omega-3, and up to 30x more powerful than other ordinary Green Lipped Mussel powder.
Our unique ActivEase® GLM provides a unique combination of Omega-3 fatty acids to help soothe stiff joints. When your dog or cat starts taking YuMOVE Joint Care, the Omega-3’s begin to accumulate in the cell membranes, and they can get to work soothing joint stiffness.
Inside your pet’s joints, there is a viscous substance called synovial fluid that works to cushion and lubricate the joint. Hyaluronic Acid is a major part of the synovial fluid.
There is a constant turnover of Hyaluronic Acid in your pet’s body, but the concentration of Hyaluronic Acid reduces with joint stiffness and as our cats and dogs get older. The Hyaluronic Acid present in YuMOVE Joint Care helps to cushion and lubricate the joints.
Glucosamine provides the major building blocks of cartilage – the tough connective tissue that protects the joint.
Manganese is an element that supports collagen formation in the cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, which is why it’s included in our Joint Care supplements.
To be more technical, Manganese is an essential trace element which plays a role in the formation of GAGs (building blocks of cartilage) and is a cofactor for enzymes that are involved in the formation of collagen.
Vitamins C and E
Vitamin E is important as an antioxidant and helps to mop up any free radicals produced in the joint. We also use Vitamin C with Vitamin E, as it's been shown that they have a synergistic effect.
