- What are the benefits of this combination supplement?
Glucosamine Chondroitin / MSM is a combination of today’s most popular joint support nutrients: glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and MSN. The three nutrients complement each other for joint health. This formula is shown to promote joint, tendon, and ligament flexibility and easy joint movement.
- How does this product support joints and connective tissue?
Glucosamine is a major component of joint-soothing glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs form molecules that hold and bind water that is important to lubricate joints, disperse stress and provide nourishment to the joint tissues. Chondroitin sulfate is the most important GAG in the body. MSM, in its complete and active form, is a naturally occurring form of organic sulfur found in the body. Because sulfur is a critical component of healthy connective tissue and it helps keep tissues elastic, it promotes joint flexibility, lubrication and movement.
- Are there any additional supporting ingredients?
The formula contains molybdenum, a trace mineral which needs to be in good supply for the proper functioning of the sulfite oxidase enzyme, which in turn supports the proper metabolism of glucosamine sulfate and MSM. Vitamin C in the formula is necessary for the production and stability of collagen, the major protein in cartilage and connective tissue. Vitamin C is also an important antioxidant which helps protect cells from free radicals.
- Who will most benefit from this product?
Older, mature adults who are seeking extra support for healthy joint movement and athletes who exercise intensely may benefit. Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM can be especially helpful for post-exercise recovery. *
