Arthritis is a disease of the joints, causing pain, swelling and inflammation. While there are many types of arthritis, one of the most common, osteoarthritis, afflicts many people as they get older. As joints age, degeneration of the cartilage and protective tissue can occur, causing pain and inflammation.
The ingredients in Arthritis Formula are designed to help the body maintain proper joint function and reduce inflammation in the body.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays an essential role in the creation of collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, including skin, tendons, joint cartilage and bone.
Manganese and Copper both plays essential roles in the creation of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is a key antioxidant enzyme that destroys harmful free radicals. Both minerals also are essential for the creation of connective tissue.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are natural components of connective tissue that provide resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive and lubricating properties to aging and worn joints.
Sulfur, the mineral found in methylsulfonylmethane(MSM), is an indispensable element in human nutrition and is needed by the body for the structural integrity and function of almost every protein in the body, as well as playing crucial roles in joint and connective tissue function.
Astaxanthin, a natural carotenoid, may play an important role in the moderation of inflammation. Human studies also have reported its usefulness in maintaining normal joint and
connective tissue structure and function.
Hyaluronic acid forms large, bulky molecular chains that allow joints to move smoothly and provides a cushion between aging joints.
Resveratrol, from Polygonum cuspidatum, can help positively modify the body’s inflammation process, playing a major role in joint health.
