Overview

Before taking any supplement to support the health of your joints, I highly recommend that you adopt a regular program of stretching and foam rolling of the muscles and ligaments that surround your joints, especially your weight-bearing joints (spine, hips, knees, and ankles). Often times, I find that joint pain and stiffness can be remedied and prevented by taking care of the tissues that surround joints through simple exercises. For more information, be sure to visit our Stretching and Foam Rolling Archive by clicking here.

If, in adopting a regular stretching and foam rolling schedule, you find that your joints need support from the inside-out, you might consider this target formula.

Simply put, Joint Support is designed to support and enhance the health of joints and connective tissue throughout the body.

It includes a unique blend of whole food nutrients and botanicals that can be immensely helpful in relieving conditions like chronic joint pain, joint stiffness, tendonitis, and bursitis. Joint Support may also accelerate recovery from heavy workouts and sports injuries.

Targeted Nutritional Support

The nutrients in Joint Support are known to help normalize celluar biochemistry throughout the body, including within the cells of muscles, tendons, bones, and ligaments that surround and lie within joints.

Specifically, these nutrients help:
  • Improve integrity of cell membranes

  • Facilitate production of new protein

  • Support the repair of damaged DNA

  • Help in removal of toxins from your tisses

All of these processes are essential to optimally supporting the tissues that make up your joints.

Support for Cartilage Production

Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin are key compounds in this formula that specifically support cartilage health. These two compounds are most effective when taken together.

Glucosamine sulfate stimulates production of glycosaminoglycans, which are key components of cartilage. In some cases, clinical studies have also shown that glucosamine may help stimulate joint repair.

Chondroitin sulfate is a natural substance found in cartilage, where it performs the following functions to keep cartilage healthy:
  • It attracts water, which helps keep the tissues within and surrounding joints healthfully hydrated

  • It supplies other nutrients to joint connective tissue and inhibits the body's production of enzymes that are known to break down joint tissue

Support for Collagen Production

Collagen is a natural component of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and hair. Collagen production naturally declines with age, resulting in easier breakdown of skeletal muscle and connective tissue. Supplementation with sulfur containing nutrients can help maintain and re-build collagen in the body.

MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) provides the body with a bio-available form of organic sulfur to form collagen for healthy joints and muscles. MSM is also known to help promote healthy blood supply to joints and optimize joint function.

Silicon, from the herb horsetail, contributes to the formation of collagen. It is also needed as a co-factor for calcification of bones.

Normalization of Inflammation

Green Lipped Mussel, boswellia, and bromelain are included in Joint Support for their systemic anti-inflammatory and tonifying effects.

Green Lipped Mussel is particularly rich in muclpolysaccharides, which are natural compounds that can help normalize inflammation.

Boswellia is an Indian tree that produces a gummy resin that has a long history of use in Indian herbal medicine as a remedy for arthritis and bursitis. It's thought that natural compounds in the resin have strong anti-inflammatory actions.

Bromelian is a plant enzyme that can help normalize inflammation in muscles and joints.

As with all of our 100% whole food supplements, Joint Support does not contain any synthetic nutrients. Each tablet of includes a variety of nutrient-rich foods, including spinach, kale, papaya, carrot, pumpkin seed, red beet, broccoli, tomatoes, wild blueberries, and cranberries.

Here's a look at the nutrition facts panel for Joint Support:



Please note that this formula is not 100% vegan. Because all of our other formulas are vegan-friendly, we made a mistake in not omitting "vegan-friendly" from the far right hand side of this label.
