Osteo Bi-Flex Joint Shield Formula With 5-Loxin & MSM Hyaluronic Acid - 120 Coated Caplets
Help build cartilage, lubricate your joints and promote your joint comfort with Osteo Bi-Flex Advanced MSM formula. The key ingredient in JOINT SHIELD is a potent extract of Boswellia serrata called 5-Loxin, which is 10 times more concentrated for the active ingredient AKBA than typical Boswellia extracts. Easy-to-swallow SmoothCap caplets deliver Glucosamine HCl and an MSM/Chondroitin Complex, along with Vitamin C, Manganese and Boron. MSM is a natural source of sulfur, a mineral that is vital in the formation of collagen, connective tissue, and healthy joint cartilage. This high-quality dietary supplement also includes Hyaluronic Acid for additional support.
Q: What is Glucosamine?
A: Glucosamine is an amino saccharide that occurs naturally in the body. Glucosamine is used by the body as a precursor for cartilage synthesis. Glucosamine is also necessary to keep cartilage tissue lubricated and maintain its naturally slippery texture. All Osteo Bi-Flex products utilize Glucosamine HCl, which has been found to support joint comfort, mobility and flexibility.
Q: What is Chondroitin Sulfate?
A: Chondroitin Sulfates are long chains of sugar units which help attract and hold fluid into the cartilage. Chondroitin Sulfate also promotes cartilage renewal. Chondroitin has been found to help maintain joint space and to promote mobility and flexibility.
Q: What is Joint Shield?
A: The ingredients in Joint Shield work to guard against the action of enzymes that affect joint health. This proprietary blend includes the patent-pending ingredient 5-LOXIN. Taking 5-LOXIN shows improvement in Joint Comfort within 7 days1. 5-LOXIN is a super concentrated extract of Boswellia serrata, which helps with joint flare-ups. The 5-LOXIN in Joint Shield is ten times more concentrated than typical Boswellia extracts.
Q: How does Glucosamine work together with Joint Shield?
A: Glucosamine helps stimulate the synthesis of new cartilage. Glucosamine also helps promote joint comfort, flexibility and mobility. While Glucosamine helps to rebuild joints, the 5-Loxin within Joint Shield works to guard against the actions of enzymes that affect joint health.
Q: What factors can affect joint health?
A: Several factors can affect the health of our joints. As we age, the body is less able to renew and maintain the supportive cartilage structures surrounding joints and bones. Regular exercise and physical activity are important for healthy joints, but too much exercise can result in occasional stiffness and soreness in muscles and joints. Maintaining a healthy weight is also beneficial. Excess weight increases the amount of stress placed on the joints, which can lead to impaired mobility and flexibility over time. Proper nutrition is another key to joint health. Obtaining sufficient amounts of essential vitamins and minerals is important for synthesizing and renewing cartilage, collagen and other joint components. Avoiding high dietary intakes of “bad” fats (such as trans fatty acids) and simple sugars is vital, because too much fat and sugar can lead to the overproduction of inflammatory compounds which can affect joint comfort. Supplementation can also be important for joint health. Although the body can synthesize Glucosamine and Chondroitin, there are no known food sources of these compounds. The only way to increase your daily intake is through supplements.
Q: How does Osteo Bi-Flex promote range of motion in joints?
A: By helping to revitalize and renew the structures within joints, Osteo Bi-Flex provides the components needed by cartilage to support joint movement. Healthy cartilage is vital for proper range of motion and movement of joints. Osteo Bi-Flex also promotes joint comfort, which promotes ease of movement as you flex and extend your joints and muscles.
Q: How can Osteo Bi-Flex promote the comfort of my joints?
A: Joints are largely responsible for absorbing the stresses placed on our bodies during movement and weight-bearing. Healthy joints are needed to properly absorb all of the stress and impact forces we place on our joints. By providing the building blocks necessary for joint cartilage, Osteo Bi-Flex supports your joints ability to properly absorb external forces, which can promote joint comfort.
