The science is more than convincing--glucosamine and chondroitin have shown time and time again to help restore joint function and possibly help alleviate inflammation. This formula is unique in that it is a high dose of glucosamine and chondroitin in a softgel form, with other anti-inflammatory nutrients to support joint health. Omega-3 fatty acids work as anti-inflammatory agents along with turmeric, an orange-colored Indian spice. Turmeric helps inhibit factors that lead to inflammatory mediators, and Bromelain may further facilitate the anti-inflammatory process. Vitamin C works to promote collagen synthesis, the structure that helps form a healthy joint.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring organic sulfur compound that is found in all living plant and animal tissues. Sulfur, the primary functional molecule of MSM, is involved in many enzymatic and biological components in the body. While sulfur is naturally found in foods, it is easily destroyed by even minimal processing. Preliminary research suggests MSM may have the ability to improve joint health, making it a very popular supplement among seniors.
Research demonstrates that glucosamine and chondroitin can provide joint support naturally, and may be a great alternative to traditional therapies that often lead to long term joint degradation and undesirable side effects. It is estimated that millions men and women in the United States are at risk for developing joint health concerns associated with the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, commonly occurring in the knees, hips and spine. These occur when cartilage becomes stiff and loses its elasticity and over time can wear in some areas. As cartilage wears away, tendons and ligaments stretch causing pain. If the condition worsens bones can actually rub together. Traditional therapies generally do not heal the...Full Details
Glucosamine is the major building block for the chains and lattices that make up cartilage. By helping to keep these elements in strong supply, glucosamine can help to rebuild cartilage and connective tissue as it is worn down. Until now, all glucosamine has been sourced from shellfish, making it inaccessible to vegetarians and those maintaining a kosher diet. Our Vegetarian Glucosamine comes from an all natural vegetarian source, making it an effective joint support supplement for everyone.
