NowFoods Glucosamine & Chondroitine with MSM 180 caps joint supplement
NOW FOODS Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM is a dietary supplement containing glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM - combining three of the most popular and effective nutrients, for supporting healthy joints.
The triple power of three ingredients
The combination of chondroitin, glucosamine and MSM will make joints stronger, resist hard exercise, and reduce susceptibility to injury and trauma in the extremities. Studies have shown that these ingredients provide vitality, support the musculoskeletal system, improving its structure and performing certain functions. Glucosamine, as a building block of connective tissue, contributes significantly to the preservation of joint cartilage and the renewal of the synovial supply. Glucosamine production declines with age.
How does the joint supplement work?
Reduction of pain
The primary purpose of using glucosamine in systematic supplementation is to regenerate cartilage and joint elements in the body and reduce pain caused by, among other things, excessive strain or intense exercise. There is a very high probability of damage to joint connections due to excessive body weight, a diet low in calcium or any type of injury.
It is also worth mentioning that glucosamine is a compound well tolerated by our body. The greatest therapeutic benefit comes from its use in the form of sulfate. This variety of glucosamine is characterized by the highest bioavailability, so that almost 90% of the active substance reaches the bloodstream. This feature is used not only in sports supplementation, but also in medical treatment. Glucosamine sulfate is one of the mainstays of treatment for osteoarthritis and mineral loss, which results not only from injury or trauma, but age or hormonal changes.
How does chondroitin work?
Chondroitin is a mucopolysaccharide that plays a key role in the production of joint cartilage proteoglycans. It has a beneficial effect on the joints, increasing mobility and stabilizing the width of the joint crevice. Chondroitin sulfuric acid, which is a basic component of bones, is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and participates in their metabolism and regeneration. It has a great influence on the strength and efficiency of joints.
Production of joint lubricant
The greatest effectiveness of chondroitin is seen in the form of sulfate. This compound is very important due to its participation in eliminating the feeling of friction between joint surfaces. Moreover, it naturally stimulates the body to produce synovium, which is responsible for the proper functioning of joints. As a result, their structure is not destroyed, and the quality and mobility of the movement performed remains at the correct level.
First and foremost, however, MSM has an analgesic effect, as it inhibits pain impulses along nerve fibers and reduces pressure in cells. When inflammation occurs in the cells of fibrocartilage tissue, then the pressure in them increases, they swell and become stiff, which outwardly manifests as swelling and pain. MSM restores the elasticity and permeability of cell walls, as a result of which the conditions for the flow of tissue fluids are improved. Harmful substances in the form of lactic acid and other toxins can be removed, and regenerative nutrients flow in. As a result, the pressure in tissue cells is equalized, pain is reduced or its causes are eliminated. This action is extremely important for the elderly and athletes (injuries).
What is worth remembering?
In summary, the dietary supplement NOW FOODS Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM containing chondroitin, glucosamine and MSM has a positive effect on the regeneration of bones and their connections. Studies of glucosamine and chondroitin have shown that their combination works to prevent the progression of structural disease in osteoporosis of the knee joints. The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin guarantees a multidirectional improvement in the rate of joint regeneration and increases the resistance of both cartilage and bones to micro-injuries.
