MYOS CORP Announcements
- MYOS Canine Muscle Formula with Green Lipped Mussel: This new product will feature a blend of Fortetropin and Green Lipped Mussel. Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) is a shellfish that is native to New Zealand. GLM is a rich source of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) such as chondroitin sulfate that are a necessary component for cartilage repair. GLM is an abundant source of omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA, EPA and ETA that suppress inflammation.
- Feline Muscle Formula: MYOS Feline Muscle Health Formula is comprised of 100% Fortetropin, a natural product manufactured from fertilized, chicken egg yolk via a patented, low temperature manufacturing process. Fortetropin has been shown to be safe and well tolerated in cats and has been shown to promote the growth and development of muscle tissue in both humans and dogs.
- MYOS Muscle & Mobility Collagen Chews: To promote joint health, these chews contain collagen and glucosamine. Branched chain amino acids are added to promote muscle growth. Both turmeric and blueberry extract are added to suppress inflammation.
New clinical studies
- Kansas State University Geriatric study: In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study, it was observed that dogs that consumed Fortetropin on a daily basis experienced statistically significant decreases in LOAD (Liverpool Osteoarthritis in Dogs) scores after 6 weeks of supplementation. Developed by Veterinary Researchers at the University of Liverpool, the LOAD Score is a clinical metrology instrument that is commonly used to assess the quality of life and mobility of a geriatric dog based on responses to 13 questions.
- University of Florida Feline study: Professor Chen Gilor, University of Florida reported that Fortetropin was safe and well tolerated in cats at doses ranging from 1 g/day to 4 g/day. This research will be presented at the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) Forum in June 2021.
Formation of Veterinary Advisory Board
