Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound that is an important part of all connective tissue in the body including cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Glucosamine promotes
production of the critical lubricants and shock absorbers that are needed for healthy, pain-free joint movement.
Glucosamine is easily absorbed into the body and contains vital nutrients needed for joint tissue repairs. It promotes production of the fluid that lubricates joints and inhibits the cells that cause inflammation. Combined with the organic sulfur from MSM, it helps stabilize joint cartilage and protect it from damage.
Glucosamine helps activate the body’s self-healing mechanisms for rebuilding damaged cartilage and connective tissues. Research has shown that when taken regularly, it can significantly reduce joint pain and increase range of motion.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in many plants and animals, including humans. Research studies have shown that MSM has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. MSM has been used successfully to reduce bladder inflammation, allergy symptoms, and arthritis.
Boron is needed for bone and joint health because it is involved in the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. Boron also appears to affect the metabolism of vitamin D and the production of steroid hormones within the body. Research has shown that Boron supplementation can help prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis. Boron was found to reduce the loss of Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphorous in postmenopausal women.
Trimethylglycine TMG (also known as betaine) turns the potentially dangerous amino acid, homocysteine into the beneficial amino acid methionine. Elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of arthritis and cardiovascular disease. TMG/Betaine prevents homocysteine levels from rising.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is essential for proper circulation. Niacinamide promotes healthy circulation to joints and supports delivery of essential nutrients to cartilage and bone.
Vitamin B6 is essential for more functions in the body than almost any other nutrient. Vitamin B6 is needed to make several neurotransmitters and therefore is needed for proper control of every muscle, gland, and organ. It activates many enzymes, aids in immune system function, and helps prevent arteriosclerosis. Many nutritionally oriented doctors believe that Vitamin B6 may be helpful in the treatment of arthritis, allergies, and asthma.
Vitamin C is needed to make collagen, an essential component of cartilage, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and plays an important role in cardiovascular health by protecting artery walls from cholesterol damage. Research has shown that Vitamin C improves nitric oxide activity, which dilates arteries and increases circulation.
Manganese is needed to produce healthy bone, cartilage, and the lubricating fluid that allows joints to move smoothly. Healthy circulation requires Manganese for the enzyme that relaxes the walls of arteries to increase blood flow. Manganese also activates the important antioxidant enzyme Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). Manganese-activated SOD helps protect joint cartilage against damage from the common free radical Superoxide.
Silica: The essential natural element Silica is a major part of bones, cartilage, connective tissue, and skin. Silica is essential for the healing process. Horsetail grass is a plant that contains large amounts of Silica.
Horsetail has been used in herbal medicine to help heal broken bones and joint injuries. Horsetail is used by many nutritionally oriented doctors in the treatment of arthritis to help reduce inflammation and promote joint repair.
Cat’s Claw is a medicinal plant that is widely used to reduce inflammation. Research studies using various tests have shown that Cat’s claw is able to inhibit inflammation from 46% to 89%. Cat’s claw acts as an antioxidant and has immune-stimulating effects.
Sarsaparilla: Research has shown that Sarsaparilla has anti-inflammatory effects. Among its many uses, Sarsaparilla has been used for centuries to treat arthritis and joint pains. Sarsaparilla has immuno-modulatory actions, which may contribute to its beneficial effect for arthritis.
Ginger has been used as a medicinal plant for over 2500 years. Among its many uses is the treatment of inflammatory joint disease such as arthritis. Modern research has shown that a standardized ginger extract had a statistically significant effect on reducing symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee. Ginger is an effective antioxidant, comparatively as effective as Vitamin C.
