Joint Health Essentials™Glucosamine, MSM and Chondroitin - Every joint in our body is lined with cartilage. This cartilage helps our joints to function and move freely without pain. As we get older, connective tissue discomfort occurs in many different parts of our bodies. Joint pain can clearly hinder activity and your ability to perform simple tasks. Fortunately, there is a now a 100% all-natural product that offers excellent support- Joint Health Essentials™. We help you by supplementing your daily diet with additional nutrients such as Glucosamine Sulfate, MSM and Chondroitin that can help maintain healthy cartilage and your connective tissues. You can move freely again, work, play, exercise and perform all your daily tasks.

Our cartilage generally has a poor blood supply and must get most of its nutrients from the joint fluid. These nutrients can be supplemented to enhance joint health for the purpose of maintaining the cartilage cells and the thickness of the cartilage layer. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are two of the main components of your joint cartilage. Cartilage acts as a joint cushion and Glucosamine stimulates the formation of, and helps maintain healthy cartilage, while Chondroitin helps to draw fluid into the cartilage, making it more elastic and flexible. Joint pain is really a wear-and-tear problem that involves degeneration of joint cartilage.
Don’t be satisfied with just ordinary joint products. Our new Joint Health Essentials™ delivers an army of nutrients... This complex includes an array of nutrients that are targeted just for people in their later years.
Arthritis is a disease that often affects the joints as we age. Osteoarthritis, also known as Degenerative Joint Disease, is the most common form of arthritis and a leading cause of disability in older adults. In fact, by age 65, more than 80 percent of seniors will have evidence of osteoarthritis and an additional 10 percent will have the symptoms.
Before age 50, more men than women are actually affected by Osteoporosis of the knee, but after age 50 the condition is also very prevalent in women, who generally begin showing symptoms shortly after menopause. Tests have shown that, unlike aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used for arthritis, Glucosamine and Chondroitin have few side effects.
Glucosamine sulfate and Chondroitin sulfate are the building blocks that help cushion and lubricate our joints. Joint Health Essentials provides the Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements that are responsible for slowing the progression of osteoarthritis — the deterioration of cartilage between joint bones — and to reduce the associated pain. Glucosamine is thought to promote the formation and repair of cartilage. Chondroitin is believed to promote water retention and elasticity in cartilage and inhibit enzymes that break down cartilage.
Like glucosamine, chondroitin has a strong affinity for water, and it seems to be able to 'pull' water into joints and thus keeps them lubricated. As part of the aging process, the quantity of your chondroitin sulphate in joint cartilage tends to decline, and your joints become stiffer and less resilient. Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate are alreadty manufactured by the human body, so the basic strategy with our supplement is to magnify the body's basic levels of these two compounds.
Glucosamine Sulfate is a highly recommended natural supplement for joint health. For joint pain, sometimes you might take aspirin or ibuprofen. While they're effective at suppressing symptoms, they do nothing for helping you actually repair cartilage.
Researchers from the Arthritis Center, Boston University School of Medicine, reviewed fifteen different studies on the use of Glucosamine and Chondroitin for joints. The results showed significant improvement in all patients with joint problems using either material. All of the studies showed them to be extremely safe, with almost no side effects. Reliable benefits were found to take a period of 4 to 8 weeks to occur.
MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane) is a naturally occurring form of dietary sulfur found in fresh foods, but is often destroyed by food processing. It's probably the safest ingredient you can take next to water. It acts by donating sulfur to the body for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue. It also has important pain management attributes. MSM is used primarily for treating pain associated with osteoarthritis and for treating other chronic conditions including rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation.
In the body, MSM is thought to help build the body's natural barriers against toxins, allergens and parasites. It also helps fortify joint and connective tissue, maintain healthy joints, and promote smooth skin and thick hair.
This is a natural substance produced by your body and found primarily in joint cartilage. As you grow older, your body loses the capacity to make enough Glucosamine, so the cartilage in your weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees, and hands is weakened, in time it hardens and creates pain and limits your movement.
Glucosamine is highly beneficial if you are suffering from osteoarthritis pain or are having difficulty moving, lifting or simply performing day to day activities. It has been proven effective in easing osteoarthritis pain, rehabilitating cartilage, renewing synovial fluid, and repairing joints that have been damaged from osteoarthritis.
There have been many double blind placebo controlled trials and studies done on Glucosamine. In many trials and studies, Glucosamine has shown to be very effective at:
Chondroitin Sulfate is part of a protein molecule that gives your cartilage its elasticity. It is a natural component of the cartilage that cushions joints and blocks the enzymes that can destroy cartilage tissue critical to free movement and proper joint function. Chondroitin promotes water retention and elasticity in joint cartilage. Chondroitin is a viable natural treatment for osteoarthritis, and some studies indicate that it is as effective as aspirin and other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) at relieving arthritis pains. A recent analysis of seven clinical trials indicates that supplementing with Chondroitin can markedly reduce osteoarthritis symptoms by as much as 50%.
MSM is being touted as a magic bullet for treating arthritis pain. It blocks pain impulses by precluding their passage along C fibers within nerves. These fibers carry messages of pain from a site of damaged tissue in the body to the brain. MSM also reduces inflammation. Inflammation can place pressure on nerves and other tissues which intensifies pain. MSM promotes blood flow, which enhances the healing processes. MSM reduces muscle spasm – a condition invariably present when the musculoskeletal system is damaged. MSM offers relief from muscle pain, joint pain and inflammation.
Pantothenic acid is essential for the metabolism of food. It is essential in the synthesis of hormones and cholesterol. It also plays an important role in the secretion of hormones, such as cortisone, because of the role it plays in supporting the adrenal gland. These hormones assist the metabolism, help to fight allergies and are beneficial in the maintenance of healthy joints, muscles, skin and nerves.
N-Acetyl-Glucosamine (NAG) is a form of Glucosamine, one of the building blocks of joint tissue and other connective tissues.. While much more expensive than ordinary Glucosamine, recent research has revealed that this often overlooked bodily component can be of vital importance to our overall joint health and therefore we felt it important to add this to our Joint Health Essentials™ formula.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, known as "NAC" provides powerful immune support and also packs a powerful anti-toxin potential. It has the ability to neutralize cell and DNA damaging free radicals and can help slow down what many scientists point to as a key factor in the aging process.
Vitamin C & Vitamin E, Manganese, Molybdenum, L- Acetyl Cysteine, L-Glutathione, Magnesium, and more.
Recently, findings from a study completed by the Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial proved that the combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin was effective in treating moderate to severe knee pain from osteoarthritis; and the kicker is that these two naturally derived substances outperformed the pharmaceutical, Celebrex, and unlike this and other prescription remedies, there are no known side effects to Glucosamine or Chondroitin. This study was not funded by a supplement manufacturer, but rather by the National Institutes of Health, who spent over $14 million on this project - the largest placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial ever conducted for Glucosamine and Chondroitin
