Joints are where bones, connective tissue and cartilage all come together in your body to promote movement. Your joint support system is responsible for sustaining the area around muscles and bones, where they provide shock absorption and support your internal structure.
There are many ways to encourage healthy joint function, like maintaining a healthy weight and enhancing your diet with well-established joint care supplements like Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM.**
Glucosamine is naturally found within the joints, making it the ideal supplement for supporting healthy joints and connective tissue.** Glucosamine comes in two main forms, Hydrochloride and Sulfate, and lubricates the joints to support mobility and flexibility.** Chondroitin is a naturally occurring nutrient found in connective tissue; in supplement form, it helps promote healthy cartilage and support the structural framework of joints.** MSM is a form of sulfur, one of the raw materials for collagen—which plays a key role in promoting healthy connective tissue.** MSM also synergistically enhances the benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin to support healthy cartilage.**
Maintaining a healthy weight relative to your height can help promote healthy joints and comfortable movement, since every extra pound you carry on your frame puts four times the stress on your knees.1
The health of your joints goes hand in hand with enjoying comfortable, easy movement as you age. Millions of Americans have cause for concern when it comes to healthy joint function. 2 Additionally, women are more likely than men to have concerns about their joint health 3; and the likely culprit is wearing high heel shoes. Research shows that wearing shoes with a three-inch heel can put seven times the amount of stress on your joints than shoes with a one-inch heel.4
