Keeping your joints in good working order requires daily nutrients to keep them functioning smoothly. Our glucosamine sulfate from vegan sources helps to build and maintain cartilage and joint tissue while silica from bamboo assists with the metabolism of minerals. Vitamin C is beneficial for your collagen, ligaments and tendons, keeping joints tight together. For any inflammatory issues, MSM is there to keep it in check and allow your tissue to be repaired.
This simple yet balanced formula is an appreciated combination and provides the means to keep you on track to be mobile and flexible.
Feeling out of joint?
Don’t let getting older slow you down. Enerex Healthy Joints combines effective therapies from animal-free Glucosamine Sulfate and methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) in the recommended effective dose of 1500 mg each. It also offers 48 mg of organic Silica from bamboo and 300 mg of Vitamin C. Glucosamine Sulfate and MSM are well researched for treating osteoarthritis, especially when taken together. Bamboo Silica helps stop degeneration and increase regeneration of joints; and Vitamin C is needed to make collagen, the main component in your connective tissue. Stay active for life.
You’re only as young as your joints.
If you’re too busy to slow down due to bothersome joint problems, stay ahead of them. The most important factors in keeping joints nimble are nutrition and low-impact exercise. By making the right food choices, and using a handful of natural remedies, you'll be able to avoid major joint degeneration for decades.
You don't need to be a competitive athlete to appreciate the pounding your joints take during daily activities. Over time, overworked joint cartilage can develop arthritis. However, dietary supplements including Glucosamine Sulfate, MSM and Bamboo Silica can alleviate joint stiffness and pain, improve mobility, and help regenerate damaged cartilage. Glucosamine and MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane) receive the lion's share of acclaim for joint health. They not only help to relieve pain, but may actually rebuild ailing joint cartilage by helping the body make a spongy material to hold water within joints, providing resiliency. Research shows that the beneficial effects of both are more effective for treating osteoarthritis when taken together.
Glucosamine Sulfate: The body makes small amounts of Glucosamine, concentrated in joint cartilage. Glucosamine is found in structures known as proteoglycans which attract water into the joint area to lubricate the cartilage during movement, help cartilage form, protect joints from injury, and decrease inflammation. The benefits of Glucosamine are backed by over 300 scientific studies, including long-term research on hundreds of knee osteoarthritis patients (Lancet, 2001).
MSM: MSM is a naturally occurring type of sulfur that is important in the formation of collagen and glucosamine. Sulfur helps nutrients and fluids to flow through cells, and removes toxins from the cells. This maintains healthy bones, joints, ligaments and tendons, and helps to reduce pain and inflammation. MSM may also be an anti-inflammatory. Research from 2005 (Osteoarthritis and Cartilage Journal) shows its positive effects on osteoarthritis.
Silica: Silica stimulates the deposit of natural substances called chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid into cartilage, which may help to manage joint pain. Silica improves the function of Glucosamine Sulfate. Silica is used in supplements to make the mineral Silicon. Silicon was found in studies to be lower in animals that had bone and cartilage malformations. Lack of Silicon negatively affects the formation of collagen and glycosamine in the body. A 2011 study (American Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery) showed that Silicon supplements significantly increased the amount of bone that formed.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is required to create chondroitin sulfate and collagen that are needed in making connective tissue. Vitamin C’s role in wound healing is of benefit in joint injuries. As an antioxidant, it also helps reduce oxidation (damage from free radicals) that increases aging and breakdown in joints. A long-term British study in 2004 (Annals Rheum. Dis.) found that those getting less vitamin C and eating fewer fruits and vegetables were at greater risk of developing arthritis.
Fight stiff joints with food
A healthy diet is essential to lay the groundwork upon which these specific treatment nutrients can build. Use Healthy Joints in combination with meals rich in fresh vegetables (avoiding those of the nightshade family, if required), fruit, Omega 3 fats and vegetarian protein.
