A syngerstic combination of cartilage supporting, and inflammation
reducing ingredients to support overall joint health.
Glucosamine provides the underlying structural foundation for joints,
while methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) provides crucial sulfur compounds
that are so important to maintain comfortable joint function.
Overview of Ingredients:
How do glucosamine and chondroitin work?
In the joint, cartilage undergoes a constant process of breakdown
and repair. However, to be properly repaired, the building blocks of
cartilage must be present and available. The theory behind using the
glucosamine and chondroitin joint supplements is that more of the cartilage
building blocks will be available.
Glucosamine is a precursor to a molecule called a glycosaminoglycan-this
molecule is used in the formation and repair of cartilage.
Chondroitin is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in cartilage and
is responsible for the resiliency of cartilage.
Treatment with these joint supplements is based on the theory that
oral consumption of glucosamine and chondroitin may increase the rate
of formation of new cartilage by providing more of the necessary building
Boswellia is an Ayurvedic plant that contains
anti-inflammatory triterpenoids called boswellic acids. Boswellic
acid and its derivatives have anti-carcinogenic, anti-tumor, and
blood lipid lowering activities. Dried extracts of the resin of the
Boswellia serrata tree have been used since antiquity in India to
treat inflammatory conditions.
Mechanism of Action of Boswellia
Boswellia reduces inflammation. It inhibits proinflammatory 5-lipoxygenase
chemicals and blocks leukotriene synthesis. By doing so, boswellia
may be helpful in medical conditions involved in inflammation
Silica is a naturally occurring non-metallic element,
also known as silicon. It is a component of certain bodily polysaccharide
structures such as hair, skin, and nails. Our Silica is derived
from Horsetail Extract and is thoroughly screened for potency and
purity. We have included d the silica in this supplement with other
synergistic ingredients for a truly effective joint health product.
Ginger is an herb has long been used in India to treat inflammation
and pain. There are articles as far back as 1992 in which ginger was
given to people who suffered from muscle pain which resulted in "at
least some improvement" for all of the participants; in the same
study, 75 percent of the participants who had reported experiencing
rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis said that the ginger treatment
resulted in "substantial relief." In addition, no adverse
side effects were reported, even among participants who took ginger
for more than two years.
