Joint Health Formula

Joint Health Formula contains glucosamine HCl, MSM, desiccated sea cucumber (Beche de Mer), quercetin chalcone (a highly bioavailable water-soluble form of quercetin), turmeric (standardized to 95% min. curcuminoids), grape seed extract (min. 85% OPC), strontium (chelated with lysine and glycine), Vitamin D3, manganese (chelated with glycine), selenium, and Bioperine® (a patented pepper extract enhancing absorption of all ingredients). Joint Health Formula is contained in a gelatin capsule and includes no magnesium stearate.

Nutritional Information & Properties: Glucosamines are rate-limiting substrates for the metabolic transformation to larger molecules that make up glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans. The principal known GAGs are hyaluronic acid, keratan sulfate, heparin and heparin sulfate, dermata sulfate, and chondroitin sulfate. Proteoglyccans, large molecules built from GAGs, are most abundant in connective tissues such as cartilage, skin, blood vessel walls, sclera, cornea, intervertebral discs and tendons, as well as synovial fluid and the vitreous body. MSM is a natural source of sulfur, a mineral element critical to the normal function and structure of the human body. Sulfur is a raw material for the protein and connective tissue (especially proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate) that make up our body mass, for enzymes involved in countless chemical reactions, and for powerful natural compounds (such as glutathione) that protect the body against toxicity and harmful free radicals. MSM also is a pain-reducing agent. It blocks the transmission of impulses in nerve fibres that carry pain signals. Sea cucumber (Beche de Mer) is a marine animal that is highly regarded as a food and for its medicinal properties as a general health tonic, and more specifically for people with chronic joint pain, as well as tendonitis, bursitis, prostatitis, sciatica, sprains, ligament stresses, and arthritis. Sea cucumber contains approximately 20% chondroitin sulfates, substances known to support the formation of connective tissues in the body. Several clinical studies conducted over the last ten years both in the U.S. and Australia demonstrated the efficacy of sea cucumber in the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Some researchers consider sea cucumber as a breakthrough treatment for arthritic conditions. Quercetin is one of the major nutrients used to control inflammation in arthritic conditions. The usual forms of quercetin used are not well absorbed in the human intestinal tract so large amounts are needed. The form of quercetin (chalcone form) used in Joint Health Formula is highly water-soluble and extremely well absorbed by the body. Turmeric is another well-known anti-inflammatory herb useful for those with arthritic conditions. Grape Seed Extract is a well-known connective tissue strengthener that can prevent the enzymatic breakdown of structural support tissue and reduce inflammation. Strontium is a mineral found along with calcium in most foods. Research has long suggested that it may be an essential nutrient required for the normal development, structure, function, and health of the skeletal system. Clinical trials going back to the 1940s have supported this conclusion, but recent studies have provided evidence that it can offer unique nutritional support against loss of bone structure and function. Recent research on Vitamin D has shown that most people do not obtain a sufficient amount of this essential nutrient needed for bone formation. According to the results of a recent multicenter, longitudinal study, low serum levels of Vitamin D are correlated with changes in the incidence of hip osteoarthritis (OA) in older women. Manganese is important in the metabolic processes for making connective tissue. Selenium works in the enzyme glutathione peroxidase to reduce inflammation and free-radical damage in the body. Bioperine® is a black pepper extract that has been shown to enhance the absorption of nutrients by 30%-60%, and is included to make all of the nutrients in Joint Health Formula more effective. Joint Health Formula will be most effective when used in conjunction with other basic nutrients supporting the body’s metabolism, including Mighty Multi-Vite!, Bone Jour, Super E Plus Absolutely Essential Fatty Acids, and PRO-C.
