Source Natural's Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM provides the same amounts of chondroitin and glucosamine shown in recent research to support healthy joints, along with MSM, vitamin C, and molybdenum—for a more powerful product. Together, these ingredients promote joint, tendon, and ligament flexibility.
Glucosamine and chondroitin can help provide support for connective tissue and cartilage specifically in joints. Additionally, when MSM is combined with glucosamine and chondroitin, it can help transport nutrients to damaged cartilage and tissue.
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 Source Naturals Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM.
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 natural foods.
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.
Due to recent safety concerns in regards to prescription and over the counter pain relievers, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) many pain sufferers are turning to dietary supplements to help with symptoms associated with this condition.
Research now suggests that MSM is a basic element essential to many structures and functions of the human body, while glucosamine and chondroitin help make up the "building blocks" of cartilage and provide necessary nutrients for cartilage rehabilitation and inflammation relief. The combination of these ingredients can help promote joint, tendon, and ligament flexibility.
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.
Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM contains 250mg of Vitamin C per serving. 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 free radicals.
Now you can enjoy the benefits of today’s hottest joint nutrients—glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM—all in one formula. Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex with MSM: the next generation in joint nutrition.
