Maximum support formula for arthritis and joint disorders.
When dealing with joint disorders resulting from injury, arthritis, or other joint problems, the most beneficial steps may be those taken to enhance the body’s’ ability to repair and restore health to the cartilage and surrounding tissues in the joints. We have selected the best possible combination of nutrients to help accomplish this.
By providing the equivalent of seven or more products in one formula, we have created a highly effective, yet versatile, unique formulation that takes the guesswork out of selecting the most effective product to help treat almost any form of joint or arthritis disorder. The joint complex contains the following main ingredients:
Chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate: researchers have found that glucosamine may help to stimulate the production of connective tissue, especially cartilage. While possibly regenerating cartilaginous tissue, glucosamine seems to also play a role in reducing inflammation, and studies have shown it to be more effective than ibuprofen in treating degenerative arthritis. Chondroitin sulfate, which acts as a flexible matrix between cartilaginous filaments, may help to strengthen this connective tissue while decreasing its rigidity, thereby decreasing the risk for injury.
Green-Lipped Sea Mussel: Green-lipped sea mussel contains high levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid serves as an effective lubricant for the joint and buffers against cartilage damage.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane): an essential nutrient required by the body, MSM plays an important role in the production of collagen. Insufficient levels of MSM can lead to an inability of the body to repair or replace damaged tissue. MSM can also play a significant role in controlling pain caused by inflamed tissue cells. Such inflammation occurs when tissue cells are unable to adjust their fluid levels in response to atmospheric pressure changes. This is why many people claim to be able to forecast weather changes by the pain in their joints. MSM helps regulate fluid transfer in the tissues by keeping the cell walls flexible and permeable.
Histidine: those afflicted by arthritis have been shown to have abnormally low levels of histidine in their bodies. Proper intake of histidine may prove beneficial in the reduction of inflammation associated with joint disease and other disorders.
Boron: this important mineral is renowned for its role in helping to prevent or slow the effects of osteoporosis. There is some evidence to suggest boron may prove beneficial in treating some forms of arthritis.
A special base of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other nutrients have been added to further enhance the active ingredients found in the Sports Edge joint complex.
Suggested use: one or two tablets are taken three times daily as a dietary supplement.
