Natural Joint Support Products.
Everyone old enough to walk appreciates the value of flexibility and ease of
movement. Unfortunately many of us take such good things for granted. A famous
folksinger sang, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone." That's certainly true
for millions Americans who live with stiff and uncomfortable joints.
Fortunately there are a number of nutrients available that provide the vital
components of healthy joint structure and function and ease of mobility. These
nutrients are referred to as chondroprotective agents, and include glucosamine
and chondroitin, which supply the raw material necessary to produce new cartilage,
and may even help rebuild worn cartilage. Other chondroprotective nutrients and
herbs, like Cetyl Myristoleate, MSM, and Boswellin, work synergistically with
glucosamine and chondroitin and further support normal joint function.
To understand how chondroprotective agents work, one must first understand how
joints work. The key element in human joints is articular cartilage, the shock-
absorbing tissue that connects two bones together and allows pain-free movement.
Articular cartilage is comprised of two different molecules, collagen and
proteoglycans, with the remainder composed primarily of water (65-85). Collagen,
a protein that binds tissue together, provides elasticity. Proteoglycans, composed of
sugars and protein, absorb water, which provides lubrication and resiliency, nature's
shock absorber for your joints. Both compounds are produced by chondrocytes,
caretaker cells responsible for the formation and maintenance of cartilage. A
deficiency in any one of the above constituents will increase the likelihood of wear
and tear on articular cartilage, which can eventually lead to compromised joint
function. Glucosamine and chondroitin are safe, natural and effective nutrients that
support healthy joint function by supplying the materials needed to produce
collagen and proteoglycans.
Arnica Native to Europe and southern Russia, Arnica montana is a perennial plant
with bright yellow, daisy like flowers. Some of its common names include leopard's
bane, wolf's bane, and mountain tobacco. Arnica montana has a long history of use
in herbal healing, as do other arnica species grown in the western part of North
