Joints are made up of many components, including muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage which need to be kept nourished and healthy. Healthy joints and cartilage are what help us to keep moving more easily. Solgar's advanced, shellfish-free formulation provides the key raw materials for cartilage support including glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulphate and MSM.
Cartilage, which is found at the end of bones, is a flexible and strong supportive material which is able to withstand heavy compression loads, often many times our own body weight. Glucosamine is naturally present in bones and cartilage and is considered a building block for joints and cartilage. Combined with chondroitin and MSM, Extra Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM provides these ingredients or compounds in an expert formulation that is shellfish free.
Just two tablets daily of shellfish-free Extra Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM provides you with these three critical for connective tissue cross-linking and strength ingredients, combined into one synergistic formula for maximum health benefits. Each component plays an important role in providing structural connective tissue and cartilage with the raw materials needed for rejuvenation and revitalization. Furthermore, clinical trials demonstrate that these ingredients can have a positive effect on parameters such as mobility, flexibility, range of motion and comfort. Chondroitin is believed to help the body maintain fluid and flexibility in the joints. Chondroitin, glucosamine, and MSM is a combination medicine that has been used in alternative medicine as a possibly effective aid in treating osteoarthritis, muscle damage caused by exercise, and other inflammatory joint disorders.
Breakdown of the ingredients:
