KEY FEATURES:

· Unique, 3-part formula provides a blend of glucosamine (primary building block of joint and connective tissue), a synergistic botanical complex with vitamins & minerals involved with the maintenance and repair of joint and connective tissues.

· Contains glucosamine sulfate (extracted from shellfish), the form shown highly effective and most utilized in clinical studies. Glucosamine sulfate is a building block of the much larger chondroitin molecule.

· Provides the sodium-free, potassium complex of glucosamine sulfate for added electrolyte support.

· High potency, full spectrum formula, manufactured under strict quality control guidelines in our regulated, federally registered, pharmaceutical manufacturing facility.

· ADVANCED HERBAL DELIVERY SYSTEM® processing provides a superior product compared to typical herbals. Where appropriate, botanical ingredients are present as highly concentrated extracts for optimum digestion and utilization.

· Free of corn, soy, yeast, wheat, egg and milk products.

DIRECTIONS:

One to three tablets per day (take between meals). If patient is very sensitive, may be taken with food. Store in a cool, dry place away from children.

HOW SUPPLIED:

Dark gold caplet-shaped tablet; 30 or 90 per bottle.

BACKGROUND:

· Glucosamine is a primary component of connective (especially chondroitin) joint tissue structures and fluids. Recent scientific and medical studies have confirmed the important role this substance plays in joint tissue treatments[1] and effectiveness within pain management has been reported equaling a common drug[2].

· In our botanical complex we provide: bromelain; a natural enzyme complex from pineapple containing at least three unique cysteine proteases. This complex is effective at reducing swelling and inflammation around damaged sites[3], by impeding platelet aggregation and initiating fibrinolysis. By performing these roles, bromelain increases the blood flow to the injured tissues, and this helps return tissues to normal; highly concentrated standardized extracts containing boswellia, turmeric, ginger, and quercitin. These plants have been used for centuries as traditional medicines in India and China. Extracts from boswellia[4], turmeric[5] and ginger[6] exhibit properties for fighting inflammation primarily by reducing expression of the cathepsins (metalloproteinases) which catalyze tissue structure degradation and by reducing the effects of tissue necrosis factor (TNF), a key contributor to programmed cell senescence.

· We also provide vitamin C, niacinamide, manganese, copper, and zinc monomethionine (OptiZinc®); all nutrients essential for rapid recovery of joint and connective tissues. Vitamin C is a cofactor and the three metals are components at the active sites of enzymes producing collagen, cartilage, synovial fluid and other key components of connective tissues. For instance, vitamin C plays a well-defined role in the enzymatic synthesis of hydroxyproline within pre-formed collagen; this, along with other biochemical reactions, results in transformation of collagen from a filamentous, but elastic substance into a highly woven network with strength in all directions. A necessity for keeping bones and joints in alignment.
