Description of Glucosamine-MSM Herbal 180 tabs, Planetary Herbals
Promotes Healthy Joint Function
Glucosamine MSM Herbal combines leading joint support nutrients, in clinically
substantiated potencies, with traditional herbs used around the world to support
bone and joint function. The formula combines glucosamine, a building block
of joints, with dietary sulfur (MSM), which is necessary for healthy connective
tissue, and classic Ayurvedic, Chinese and Native American botanicals.
Together, these nutrients and herbs soothe and lubricate joints, ease movement,
and promote joint, tendon and ligament flexibility. Glucosamine MSM Herbal exemplifies
Planetary Formulas' commitment to herbalism at its best - uniting traditional
herbal wisdom with the findings of modern clinical and pharmacological research.
- Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a major component of joint-soothing
glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which in turn form proteoglycans. These molecules
hold the water that is so important to lubricate joints, disperse stress and
nourish joint tissue. Glucosamine sulfate is well-absorbed and provides an
additional source of sulfur. Numerous double-blind, placebocontrolled studies
have examined the positive effects of glucosamine sulfate in amounts comparable
to this formula.
- MSM: MSM is an important source of dietary sulfur, a mineral that
is vital to all tissues and needed constantly in an assimilable form. Sulfur
may promote flexibility due to its role in supporting joint lubrication and
- Molybdenum: Glucosamine MSM Herbal also contains molybdenum, to ensure
an adequate supply of this trace mineral. High amounts of dietary sulfur increase
urinary molybdenum loss. Molybdenum is necessary for the functioning of an
enzyme that supports proper metabolism of glucosamine sulfate and MSM.
- Traditional Herbal Blend: Planetary Formulas has traveled around
the world to search out botanicals traditionally used to support bones and
joints. Boswellia, an important Ayurvedic herb, and wild yam, which is esteemed
by Native American herbalists, have been valued for their soothing properties.
The traditional Chinese herb, teasel root, is a primary botanical used to
support the skeletal system, and eucommia bark is a classic Chinese back tonic.
