PROMOTES HEALTHY CARTILAGE AND JOINT TISSUE‡
Glucosamine sulfate and MSM provide intrinsic compounds essential for healthy cartilage formation, including glycosaminoglycans and
elemental sulfur, respectively. MSM has also been attributed with enhancing healthy immune cell activity, thereby supporting tissues
surrounding the joints. These important cartilage matrix constituents are complemented with additional factors for supporting a healthy
immune response. In studies, ginger promotes healthy prostaglandin and leukotriene biosynthesis. Curcumin helps maintain healthy
neutrophil function and scavenges free radicals.‡
Dr. W's Comments: This is another nicely balanced support for arthritis. It has glucosamine, which continues to be honored as a joint-protective ingredient – though I do not think it is good without other supportive elements, as is present here. The same goes for the MSM, which helps the body acquire sulfur – especially useful if you don’t eat onions or foods in the broccoli-kale family. This, along with the ginger and turmeric taps down in very effective ways, local inflammatory processes around damaged joints.
