Nutrients for Joints & Cartilage
Hyaluronic Acid for Joint CushioningHyaluronic acid is a primary component of the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints. Synovial fluid is the lubrication for joints, much like oil is used to lubricate moving parts in a machine. It also directly feeds nutrition to joint cartilage. HA helps joints have resiliency, ease of movement, and cushioning to distribute mechanical loads (shock absorbers).*
Hyaluronic acid makes up the backbone structure of cartilage. Without the adequate hyaluronic acid backbone, cartilage will more readily fall apart and deteriorate. Over the years we have seen many individuals significantly improve joint health, including those with knee, hip, or low back problems.*
Glucosamine and Chondroitin for Joint Mobility
Glucosamine is an important structural molecule, helping to form glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), the major building block of connective tissue and joints. A lack of glucosamine reduces the ability of the body to produce connective tissue at the proper rate.* Glucosamine has been shown in human clinical trials to ease joint discomfort and improve joint mobility.* In Wellness Resources® JointAll™ we use glucosamine HCL, a highly purified form of the nutrient. The low quality form of glucosamine used is glucosamine sulfate. It is unstable and degrades when exposed to moisture.*
Chondroitin is a major component of the extra cellular matrix, important in maintaining structural integrity. Numerous chondroitin sulfate molecules, glucosamine molecules, and sulfur-containing proteins form larger aggregates known as proteoglycans, which are used as major structural building blocks, including the structure of cartilage. Chondroitin sulfates are required for joint integrity, providing resistance of cartilage to compression. JointAll™ contains 90% purified chondroitin sulfates, the highest quality available. Many manufacturers use a 60% purified material, yielding considerable less of the active nutrient. This may not even be listed on their labels.*
FruiteX-B® (boron as calcium fructoborate)Calcium fructoborate (FruiteX-B®) is a unique nature-identical form of the mineral boron, a nutrient woefully lacking in American soil and consequently the American food supply. An encouraging body of preliminary science shows that boron in the form of calcium fructoborate has novel benefits to the health of bones and joints. In this context it is one angle on these important health topics and can be used as part of an approach for the natural management of bone and joint health.*
5-Loxin® (boswella)Boswella is an important joint protecting nutrient. It is also shown to boost brain function. One of the most potent extracts of boswella available as a dietary supplement is a patent-pending standardized extract called 5-Loxin®.*
CurcuminCurcumin is the yellow pigment derived from the spice tumeric. High quality dietary supplements standardize curcumin for the amount of curcuminoids, the primary biologically active ingredient. It is widely researched as an anti-inflammatory nutrient. A number of new studies demonstrate how curcumin can reduce the inflammation associated with obesity and in so doing simultaneously improve joint health.*
JointAll™ is our premier joint formula designed to help reduce stiffness, strengthen collagen structures, and improve joint mobility. JointAll™ contains the highest quality hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, glucosamine, feverfew, and ginger. This is excellent nutrient support for joints, tissue repair and even skin structure. Take two capsules before bed and two in the morning and notice the difference!*101 120 capsules $56.00 $44.8020% off!
Bone & Joint Helper™ provides nutrients to promote bone health and strength, a booster product for use with other products containing calcium. It increases the amount of vitamin D, uses a unique food form of boron, and features a standardized and clinically tested extract of the bone support herb Cissus quadrangularis. It also contains a standardized and clinically tested form of the herb boswellia serrata, known as 5-Loxin®, a nutrient that also promotes joint comfort and knee mobility.*94 90 capsules $37.00 $29.6020% off!
Hyaluronic Acid is a key natural component of all connective tissue in the body, and is specific support for the synovial fluid that helps lubricate joints. Hyaluronic Acid also makes up the backbone of cartilage, the cushioning in your eyes, and is highly concentrated in your skin. It is found throughout your body, helping joints and tissues have resiliency, ease of movement, and cushioning to distribute mechanical loads (shock absorbers). Our product contains the first truly absorbable natural form of this nutrient, known as low molecular weight hyaluronic acid.* (Also in JointAll™)76 60 capsules $43.00 $34.4020% off!
Repair Plus™ contains the highest potency purified papain and bromelain available. Papain and bromelain are called proteolytic enzymes, a type of enzyme the body uses to naturally assist routine repair and recovery from the demands of normal wear and tear. This formula also uses the highest grade curcumin available, a special extract of 95% curcuminoids and highly purified quercetin (a bioflavonoid). These nutrients are classified as biological response modifiers, unique nutrition that helps cells carry out proper function relating to various types of stress, and have also been shown to support bone health.*82 100 capsules $38.00 $30.4020% off!
