Glucosamine Complex with Chondroitin and MSM
Work together to promote healthy joint function
What is Glucosamine Complex with Chondroitin and MSM?
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are recognized as the leading supplements for maintenance of healthy joints. MSM is added to further support healthy joint function. Our Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM is a custom formulation that provides a balanced combination of these nutritional supplements.
Glucosamine Sulfate is an aminopolysaccharide, which is a combination of an amino acid (glutamine) and a sugar (glucose). Glucosamine is produced by the body and provides the raw material for substances that provide the foundation for many of the body?s tissues including cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and collagen, to mention a few. Glucosamine also supports the health of tissues that make up many of the body?s organs.
Chondroitin Sulfate is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a long chain of specialized polysaccharides (or sugars). It is used in the body as a building block to form connective tissues such as cartilage; it is also present in the walls of blood vessels. It keeps cartilage fluid and elastic.
Chondroitin Sulfate is necessary in the production of cartilage. Proteoglycans, a vital component of cartilage tissue, is produced by Chondroitin. Chondroitin attracts water to the proteoglycans and holds it there, which is important to maintaining health joints.
When used in conjunction with glucosamine it is much more effective. It is best to consult with your physician before taking this supplement to discuss potential allergies or reactions.
Chondroitin Sulfate Safety & Interaction Information:
There are no toxic effects with Chondroitin; however, if you are taking anticoagulants (blood thinners) or aspirin daily, use caution. Safety in young in children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known. Those allergic to shellfish should not take this product.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural sulfur-containing compound that is produced in the human body. MSM may support healthy inflammatory response and is thought to be a natural pain reliever. Although MSM occurs naturally in foods, even moderate food processing destroys most of it. Plants, animals and humans need sulfur for a wide variety of biological processes. MSM is a source of biological sulfur, which is a major component in many of the body?s proteins, tissues, hormones and enzymes. Sulfur also plays a role in the detoxification of the liver.
Our MSM is a non-animal based nutritional supplement derived from pine trees.
Bromelain is a digestive enzyme found in the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant. Primarily, bromelain is used to support healthy digestion, but it is also thought to support healthy inflammatory response.
Research indicates that Bromelain may:
- Support healthy inflammatory response
- Support healthy digestion
- Support circulatory health
- Support cardiovascular health
- Support healthy immune function
Boswellia (Boswellia serrata), also known as ?Indian frankincense?, comes from the Boswellia serrata tree that grows in the dry hills of India. It has been used historically in Ayurvedic medicine. Boswellia extract is currently being studied for its ability to support healthy inflammatory response. Boswellic acids, thought to be the active constituents, are derived from the leaf of the plant.
Research indicates that Boswellia may:
- Support healthy joint function
- Support healthy circulation
- Support respiratory health
