Glucosamine & MSM
Evergreen's Price: $30.70
Glucosamine supplies the raw materials for building cartilage. It helps to ease pain and stiffness caused by arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Glucosamine has another important role in maintain healthy joints: our bodies use it to make hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is important for joint health because it is a component of synovial fluid, the gel-like substance that lubricates the joints and rehydrates cartilage keeping it resilient. In addition, HA also part of the intercellular fluid that keeps our cells together.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) promotes flexibility in tendons and ligaments because it supports re-synthesis of disulfide bonds in connective tissues, promoting free and easy movement.
Although the name of this product is Glucosamine and MSM, it contains other supporting nutrients for joint health. Vitamin C is necessary for the construction of cartilage as well as bones. Silica is a mineral that strengthens and stabilizes connective tissues, cartilage, tendons and bone as well as skin and blood vessels. Zinc is needed for stimulating bone growth and healing fractures. In addition to its bone-strengthening activity, manganese is also necessary for healthy cartilage and for balance — an important function for people with impaired mobility due to aching joints. Selenium is an antioxidant mineral that shows promise for easing arthritis. And boron builds strong bones and teeth and enhances calcium absorption as well as the functions of Vitamin D and silica.
Herbal support for painful joints comes in the form of an Ayurvedic blend of ashwagandha, boswellia and turmeric. In a clinical trial, these three herbs plus zinc were shown to be successful in treating the pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis without the stomach irritation that may result from using NSAIDs.
This formula contains 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate and 2,250 mg of MSM per serving, in addition to the other supporting nutrients.
