INGREDIENTS: Glucosamine hydrochloride, MSM, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid.
Studies suggest that glucosamine protects connective tissues and helps maintain the integrity and mobility of joints. Glucosamine also helps lubricate joints by replenishing synovial fluid, which promotes a joint’s shock-absorbing abilities. Chondroitin sulfate attracts fluid and draws nutrients into the cartilage, making the cartilage more shock absorbent. It also promotes growth and normal tissue generation and keeps enzymes in balance. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a significant component of the body’s proteins, hormones, enzymes and tissues. It is present in many fresh foods, but it is destroyed through cooking, processing and storage. Supplementing with this nutrient ensures an adequate supply of sulfur. Sulfur is an important structural component of the connective tissue that joins muscle to bone. Hyaluronic acid (or HA) is an important component of cartilage and synovial fluid;it occurs naturally throughout the body. This molecule plays a crucial role in joint motion, the maintenance of joint homeostasis and skin support. HA promotes the viscosity and elasticity of the fluid surrounding the joints.
