The combined ingredients help to decrease joint pain and inflammation while assisting in the rehabilitation of damaged cartilage, renewal of synovial joint fluids, and the reinforcement of pliable and flexible joint tissue.
Glucosamine is a naturally occuring substance produced in an animal’s body. Its function is to maintain and regenerate healthy cartilage in joints. The production of glucosamine slows down with age, this coupled with the normal wear and tear can result in serious joint damage or degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin sulphate is a naturally occurring compound found in cartilage. It promotes healthy joints by neutralizing the effects of destructive enzymes, increasing water retention, and enhancing the elastic properties of cartilage.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a very effective pain reducer and anti-inflammatory. Pressure and pain in a joint occurs when the rigid fibrous tissue cells swell and become inflamed. MSM can restore flexibility and permeability to cell walls, which allows fluids to pass through the tissues more easily. This reduces the inflammation, diminishing pressure and pain in the joint.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body. It has a critical function: to provide lubrication in a joint by producing healthy synovial joint fluid. This fluid prevents friction and limits erosion of joint cartilage.
