The Joint System
Normal aging may cause osteoarthritis (OA), which is one of the oldest and most common forms of arthritis, caused by simple wear and tear that breaks down the cartilage of the joints. Cartilage is the part of the joint that cushions the ends of the bones and causes the bones to rub against each other when it degrades, resulting in stiffness, pain and loss of localized mobility. In addition, cartilage degradation causes the joint lining (called synovium) to become inflamed. Another, less common form of arthritis is called rheumatoid arthritis, caused by chronic inflammation of the synovium, which can cause severe joint degradation and malformation. As we age, the body's natural ability to repair cartilage can decrease. Free radical damage can also affect joint function, therefore antioxidants are helpful in preserving healthy joints.
Joint Cleanse features herbs and nutraceuticals that have significant scientific support demonstrating their efficacy in supporting healthy joint function and structure. The ingredients in Joint Cleanse nourish the articular system, which includes a variety of joints and synovial fluid, which is the "oil" allowing for smooth movement. Cleansing and nourishing the joints with proper nutrients helps promote healthy joints, cartilage and connective tissue.
Boswellia Serrata is an Extract (gum) is extracted from the Boswellia Serrata tree, indigenous to the dry forests in some parts of India. Clinical research has shown its oleo-gum-resin to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The main chemical compounds are B-Boswellic acids with no known toxicity. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Boswellia Serrata is used to help promote healthy joints and also as a tonic to help increase appetite and improve general weakness. The anti-inflammatory action is enhanced when Boswellic acid is combined with Tumeric.
Turmeric Extract (rhizome), also know as Indian Saffron spice, has been extensively used in both the Ayurvedic and Chinese medical systems to help with many inflammatory conditions. The volatile oil present in Turmeric contains anti-inflammatory activity. Turmeric is also high in Vitamin C, an important antioxidant that can be helpful in preventing free radical damage in the joints. When combined with Boswellia, Turmeric enhances the beneficial effects of both. Turmeric also supports liver and gall bladder function by stimulating the flow of bile.
Glucosamine HCL stimulates the production of cartilage and other tissue. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance in the body. A component of the muccopolysaccharides and glycoproteins in synovial fluid present in joints, it is necessary for both joint function and repair. Glucosamine protects the cartilage structures of the body. In some people, levels of glucosamine may decrease with age. Supplementing with Glucosamine HCL supports the body's repair process.
Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound that can be found in the normal human diet. It is also found naturally in all living organisms including human tissue and body fluids. Sulfur plays a critical role in human nutrition, as it is an essential element necessary for the growth of bones, hair and nails. Sulfur is necessary for the strength and formation of connective tissue and bone cartilage. Both glucosamine and collagen, the main components of joints, are sulfur dependent. MSM is recommended as a dietary supplement to prevent sulfur deficiency.
Chicken Collagen type II is derived from chicken cartilage and has a high absorption rate. Chicken Collagen Type II has a high concentration of both glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. Glucosamine sulfate helps rebuild cartilage and chondroitin sulfate, a major component of cartilage, supports joint tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties. This collagen type II contains a powerful antioxidant called cartilage matrix glycoprotein which can help reduce free radical damage to the joint. Chicken Collagen Type II contains an abundance of proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are joint supporting substances that include glucosamine sulfate. They help inhibit blood vessel formation in joints and regulate enzyme activity on cartilage. Proteoglycans also increase the thickness and effectiveness of the synovial fluid that lubricates the joint.
L-Cysteine has a high concentration of sulfur and all joints are sulfur dependent. It helps the body aid detoxification and may be helpful with preventing free radical damage.
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue.
L-Lysine aids with calcium absorption and helps the body rebuild muscle protein and promotes tissue repair after injuries.
Taurine is an abundant amino acid found in skeletal muscle.
Magnesium is an essential mineral for nerve and muscle function. It is a necessary nutrient for the entire skeletal system and plays a vital role in tooth and bone formation. Magnesium may help protect against calcium deposits.
Manganese is required for bone growth and for the synthesis of connective tissue in cartilage and bone. Manganese may help promote health and strong bones.
Zinc is essential for normal bone formation and muscle flexibility. It plays an important role in the healing process after injury. Zinc has anti-oxidant properties and may help with protection against free radical damage. Zinc picolinate is considered the most bioavailable form of supplementation. Absorption of zinc is necessary to maintain the proper levels of vitamin E in the blood.
Vitamin C accelerates healing after injury and is necessary for the formation of collagen, the principle component of connective tissue. Ester C is absorbed faster into the blood stream and excreted more slowly than regular Vitamin C supplements.
Vitamin E prevents oxidation of fat substances in the cells. A deficiency of Vitamin E may cause nerve and muscle degeneration.
BioAstin is a member of the carotenoid family and is a powerful newly discovered antioxidant that helps protect against more types of free radicals than any other antioxidant. The natural form of BioAstin is derived form the micro algae Haematococcus pluvialis and is at least 10 times more effective as an antioxidant than beta carotene. It is highly bioavailable because it binds to a lipid (fat) molecule and enters the bloodstream more readily than other antioxidants. BioAstin is a fat soluble nutrient that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which enhances its effectiveness. It is 100-500 times more effective than vitamins with inhibiting lipid peroxidation, which is the destruction of fatty acids and proteins in the cell membranes that can cause oxidative damage. BioAstin exhibits strong anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting oxidants that cause inflammation to the cells. Results from clinical studies testing the safety of astaxanthin have shown no known toxicity. The great pressures and movement that all the weight-bearing joints like knees, hips and joints in the hands are subjected to daily, make them the most vulnerable to injury and inflammation. Genetic predisposition, poor diet and stress may be contributing factors, however, the wearing down and destruction of cartilage, bone spurs, pain, inflammation of connective tissue and limited movement are all signs of affected joints exposed to cumulative wear and tear, over time.
As we age, the body's natural ability to repair cartilage can decrease. Free radical damage can also affect joint function. The aging process, coupled with years of use and abuse, can bring on degenerative changes in our joints. However, nutritional deficiencies may play a part in joint conditions.
Nutritional support plays a major role in the healthy function of joints. A broad spectrum of nutrients have been shown to support joints, connective tissue and cartilage growth.
