23 Key Ingredients to Support Joint Health
Glucosamine, a substance found naturally in the joints, stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage that has degenerated over time. The subject of many different clinical studies over the past 20 years, glucosamine has proven effective at reducing joint pain. In one Portuguese study involving those suffering with osteoarthritis, 95 percent of participants experienced at least some benefit when taking 1,500 mg of glucosamine per day. Another recent study indicates that glucosamine slows the deterioration of cartilage and relieves pain. Glucosamine is considered safe with no adverse side effects.
Chondroitin, a major component of cartilage, is found naturally in the body. It works to protect the cartilage by blocking enzymes that seek to break down cartilage and by absorbing excess fluid in the connecting tissue. It also assists in cartilage repair. Many studies have been done on chondroitin supplements, indicating that chondroitin supplements may effectively reduce swelling and stiffness in the joints and provide relief from joint pain.
MSM, included in the formulation because of its ability to reduce pain, is a biologically available (organic) form of sulfur. Sulfur is one of the major components of food and one of the most prevalent materials in the body. While this supplement is taken for many purposes, including allergies and skin, one of its most common uses is for joint and muscle pain. Studies have shown it to have anti-inflammatory properties. Since some MSM is found in the food we eat, it has no side effects or major health concerns.
Shark cartilage, which contains glucosamine and chondroitin, is also a popular ingredient for joint issues.
Green-lipped sea mussel helps support proper connective tissue and joint function by providing a rich source of amino acids, protein, minerals, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which make up the basis of all connective tissue.
