Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM
Promotes Healthy Joints and Connective Tissues
The Next Generation in Glucosamine-Chondroitin Products!
Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM provides four important building blocks
for healthy joints and connective tissue: glucosamine, chondroitin, bioavailable
sulfur (MSM), and vitamin C. Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is an essential structural
component of glycosaminoglycans, large linear molecules that help lubricate
joints, nourish cartilage and connective tissue, and assist in wound healing.
Chondroitin sulfate lends additional structural support via its high degree
of interaction with collagen fibers. Bioavailable sulfur (MSM) plays a critical
role in the integrity of joints and connective tissues. Vitamin C, essential
for the production of collagen, also serves as an effective free radical scavenger
to protect cells. Molybdenum aids in complete metabolism of MSM, glucosamine,
Glucosamine and Chondroitin: Structural Support for Joints
Glucosamine, which is synthesized in our bodies from glucose, is a major component
of joint-soothing glycosaminoglycans (GAG's). Chondroitin
sulfate is the most abundant GAG in the body. GAG's in turn form proteoglycans,
molecules that hold and bind the water that is so important to lubricate joints,
disperse stress and provide nourishment to joint tissue.
Glucosamine sulfate has been found to be well-absorbed after oral administration.
Numerous double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have examined the positive
effects of oral administration of 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate - the amount
in one daily use of GLUCOSAMINE CHONDROITIN COMPLEX WITH MSM.
Dietary Sulfur for Joint Lubrication
Both glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate provide an additional source
of sulfur, a mineral that is important for healthy connective tissue. The formula
also features MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, a naturally occurring form of organic
sulfur found in body fluids and tissue, cow¡¯s milk, plants and most
MSM is an important source of dietary sulfur, which is vital to all tissues
and needed constantly in an assimilable form. Sulfur may promote joint flexibility
due to its role in supporting joint lubrication and movement.
Molybdenum: Critical Trace Mineral
GLUCOSAMINE CHONDROITIN COMPLEX WITH MSM also contains molybdenum, to ensure
an adequate supply of this trace mineral to the body. High amounts of organic
sulfur in the diet increase urinary molybdenum loss. Molybdenum is necessary
for the proper functioning of the sulfite oxidase enzyme, which in turn supports
the proper metabolism of glucosamine sulfate and MSM.
Vitamin C: Essential for Collagen
Vitamin C is essential for the production and stability of collagen, the major
protein in cartilage and connective tissue. It also protects cells from harmful
