Doctor's Best - Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM with OptiMSM - 240 caps
What is Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM Plus HA?Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Hyaluronic Acid are components of connective tissue and joints and MSM has been shown to provide joint comfort. Chondroitin Sulfate + Hyaluronic Acid: The patented, ingredient BioCell Collagen is derived from a naturally occurring matrix of constituents that is standardized to 20% chondroitin sulfate (CS) and 10% hyaluronic acid (HA), with approximately 60% Collagen Type II. Glucosamine: Our formula also includes 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate (GS) and 1,000 mg of additional Chondroitin Sulfate quantitatively matching or exceeding dosage amounts used in landmark clinical studies that have revealed the utility of these two pivotal ingredients towards joint health. MSM: Furthermore, Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM + Hyaluronic Acid features patented OptiMSM methylsulfonylmethane, MSM distilled to be 99.9% pure. MSM is a naturally occurring nutrient that provides sulfur, used by the body to maintain normal connective tissues. How does it work?Joint Health: Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM Plus HA promotes healthy joint structure and enhances joint comfort. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates are often used to replenish these key components of connective tissue, and hair shine and nails. In a recent meta-analysis of six studies involving 1,502 volunteers, it was determined that long-term daily supplementation with glucosamine sulfate (at 1,500 mg for at least 3 years) or chondroitin sulfate (at 800 mg for at least 2 years) supported maintenance of knee joint structure over the years, compared to placebo. Glucosamine/ methylsulfonylmethane combo formulations have also been successfully used to support joint function. Glucosamine alone and MSM alone were shown to enhance joint function, while the combination was found to be even more effective in supporting joint comfort and mobility, by both subjective and objective measurements. Hair, Skin, Nails: HA also plays an important role in maintaining the health and natural beauty of the skin. HA enhances the structure and volume of the skin by promoting healthy connective tissues that interact with the skin. HA plays a direct role in the attraction and maintenance of moisture in the skin. As HA concentrations naturally decrease in the elderly, it may become useful to take HA to help skin to retain moisture. Why should I take Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM Plus HA?Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM + Hyaluronic Acid provides an all-in-one formula that brings together joint and skin health ingredients in substantial amounts. Glucosamine sulfate (GS) and chondroitin sulfate (CS) have been the topics of intense and fruitful research into joint health over the past few decades. Levels of GS & CS seen in the most acclaimed research are offered in this complete formula. Also in the formula are two vital structural components of the cartilage and skin that decline as we age: collagen type II and hyaluronic acid. The formula's BioCell Collagen furnishes these to help replenish the body's natural supply, which in turn can support joint function and healthy skin.
