Our Joint Support is unique in that it contains only Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM. Many others contain very large quantities of fillers - usually by way of sugar and other carbohydrates, so active joint ingredients are often only 10 - 15% of product weight. Our Joint Support Capsules have been formulated to enhance the training ability and sporting potential of those concerned about injury and joint maintenence.
Glucosamine sulfate helps promote joint flexibility, mobility and comfort in osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is a natural structural component of human articular cartilage, tendons and the synovial fluid which lubricates joints. Chondroitin sulfate in cartilage helps to provide resistance and elasticity which helps the cartilage to resist compressive loads. Endogenous chondroitin sulfate plays an important role in the lubrication and nutrition of the joint.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a good natural source of sulphur,which is a key component for building healthy cartilage and connective tissue. The concentration of sulfur in arthritic cartilage has been shown to be a third less than in healthy cartilage. MSM may enhance the effect of glucosamine in helping to relieve osteoarthritic pain.
Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical that is normally found in cartilage around joints in the body. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the joints breaks down. Taking chondroitin sulfate, one of the building blocks of cartilage, might slow this breakdown.
