If you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ve heard me talk about 1TDC™ and about how much I like this supplement. I don’t use the term “miracle” lightly, but I am using it for this product. The company just changed their name to Works So Well, and if ever there was a brand name that describes a product, this is it!
What is 1TDC™?
1TDC™ (which stands for 1-TetraDecanol Complex) is a revolutionary natural solution that keeps joints, muscles and gums healthy at a cellular level. This product goes beyond supplements containing glucosamine and fish oil. It works systemically as a catalyst to allow the body to improve joint and oral health.
1TDC™ is a proprietary blend of fatty acids that are derived from beef tallow. They are then formulated into a unique fatty acid complex in a CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the FDA) food-grade facility in the USA. These fatty acids are different from the essential acids you find in products like fish oil.
1TDC™’s unique technology is highly and rapidly absorbed, whether applied topically on the gums or taken orally in capsule form. When it enters the body, 1TDC™ has a tremendous affinity for white blood cells, which allows it to get where it is needed quickly. 1TDC™ efficiently does the job without interfering with other elements of your cat’s health.
Study shows 1TDC™ reduces periodontal disease within six weeks
A study performed at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, showed that daily use of 1TDC™over a period of six weeks resulted in significant improvements in cats with periodontal disease. There were 13 cats in the study. 9 cats received a daily administration of 1TDC™, the other 4 cats received olive oil for six weeks. The cats who received 1TDC™ showed significant reductions in all parameters of clinical periodontal disease except tooth mobility at 6 weeks. The cats showed a statistically significant reduction in pocket depth, clinical attachment loss, gingival index and bleeding on probing, whereas the placebo group did not show any significant change.
To full study was published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery.

1TDC™ helped reduce Allegra’s gingivitis
This product has made a considerable difference for Allegra. At her last check up, our vet found that her gums looked better than last year and that there is less evidence of gingivitis.
