Joint Solution 120 caps
Serving Size: 4 capsules
Glucosamine HCI ... 750 mg.
Glucosamine Sulfate ... 250 mg.
(from 332 mg. glucosamine sulfate KCI)
What does it do? Glucosamine is an important building block needed by the body to manufacture specialized molecules called glycosaminoglycans, found in cartilage. Glucosamine is almost exclusively researched and used for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA)*.
Boswellin ... 300 mg.
(Sabinsa standardized Boswellia serrata supplying 60% boswellic acid)
Studies have shown that boswellic acids have an anti-inflammatory actionómuch like the conventional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used for inflammatory conditions. Boswellia inhibits pro-inflammatory mediators in the body, such as leukotrienes. As opposed to NSAIDs, long-term use of boswellia does not appear to cause irritation or ulceration of the stomach.*
Sea Cucumber ... 300 mg.
Sea Cucumber has been shown to be effective in reducing the pain and inflammation seen in the arthritic and traumatized patient.*
Bromelain 1200 ... 200 mg.
Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory agent and for this reason is helpful in healing minor injuries, particularly sprains and strains, muscle injuries, and the pain, swelling, and tenderness that accompany sports injuries.*
Quercetin ... 200 mg.
Quercetin acts as an antihistamine and has anti-inflammatory properties.*
Curcumin C3 Complexô ... 100 mg.
Curcumin, is a potent anti-inflammatory compound that protects the body against free radical damage. A double-blind trial found curcumin to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent in RA patients.*
Devil's Claw Root ... 100 mg.
In one trial Devil's Claw was found to reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis as effectively as the slow-acting analgesic/cartilage-protective drug diacerhein. One double-blind study reported that devilís claw (600 or 1200 mg per day) was helpful in reducing low back pain.*
Yucca Root (Yucca spp.) ... 100 mg.
Inflammation of all sorts, including joint inflammations and bleeding, have been treated with yucca. It is also reported that the saponins from yucca are the major constituents in the plant. One preliminary trial reportedly found benefit for patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.*
Alfalfa Juice Powder ... 100 mg.
Alfalfa is rich in carotenes, vitamin K, chlorophyll, and amino acids. Supports the body in removing inorganic minerals from blood and lymph fluids. Alfalfa is a blood building food.*
Chondroitin Sulfate (CSA) ... 50 mg.
In degenerative joint disease, such as osteoarthritis, there is a loss of chondroitin sulfate as the cartilage erodes. Animal studies indicate that chondroitin sulfate may promote healing of bone, which is consistent with the fact that the majority of glycosaminoglycans found in bone consist of chondroitin sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown, in numerous double-blind trials to relieve symptoms and possibly slow the progression of, or reverse, osteoarthritis.*
