- Supports optimal joint function and regenerates lost or damaged cartilage. Boosts the body’s natural anti-inflammatory capacity.
- Promotes strong bones and teeth. May assist in postponing or preventing the onset of osteoporosis. Supports nerve and muscle function.
- Supports immune function. Supports the body’s absorption of calcium for the development and maintenance of strong bones. Contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function.
- Is cardio protective, promotes youthful brain function, strong flexible joints, and healthy eyes.
- Vitamin C Contained in it – Is familiar to most of us, but its role in joint health tends to be underappreciated. Vitamin C not only helps produce collagen, a major component of joints, but sweeps the body of destructive molecular byproducts known as free radicals, which are destructive to joints. Without vitamin C and other antioxidant nutrients, free-radical damage to joints would be much worse. One of the best-known studies looking into vitamin C and arthritis, the Framingham osteoarthritis study, found that people whose diets routinely included high amounts of vitamin C had significantly less risk of their arthritis progressing.
- Manganesium Contained in it – a trace mineral is found in small quantities in the bones, kidneys, liver and pancreas that is known to be an anti-oxidant that fights free radicals that attack body cells. In particular, the antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD) is low in people who suffer from arthritis. SOD prevents soreness of joints, and according to clinical studies of those with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, a combination of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Manganese can alleviate soreness.
- Zinc Contained in it – Zinc is a mineral that is believed to have a myriad of health benefits, but those specifically related to joint discomfort are its abilities as a soreness and soreness reducer. It is not produced by the body so it needs to be added via diet and/or supplementation. In one study from the University of Washington, Seattle, people with rheumatoid arthritis supplemented with Zinc three times a day. After three months, significant improvements in morning stiffness, soreness and swelling were reported.
