Joint health complex with optimsm™
Glucosamine, chondroitin + optimsm™
Maintaining healthy joints and cartilage
Providing nutritional building blocks for normal cartilage formation
Joint tenderness & discomfort
Strains & sprains; muscle aches & pain
4-a-day convenient, high dose glucosamine sulfate complex formula. clinical studies prove that 1500mg glucosamine sulfate taken daily can help repair joint damage & improve joint mobility and lubrication.
Clinically researched optimsm™, a highly bioavailable source of sulphur, had proven benefits in joint lubrication and comfort nutritional co-factors, including zinc, manganese, copper and selenium for antioxidant protection from free radical damage.
Chondroitin sulfate acts as a ‘fluid magnet’, drawing fluids and nutrients into the cartilage, enabling it to grow and be replaced. it works in conjunction with glucosamine sulfate to help rebuild cartilage.
Optimsm™ (methylsulfonylmethane) is a rich source of bioavailable sulphur needed for healthy joints. it helps to manage joint tenderness and discomfort, promotes circulation to the joints, helps to reduce muscle spasms around joints, acts as an antioxidant and aids joint lubrication.
Nutritional co-factors, including zinc, manganese, copper and selenium act as powerful antioxidants to protect joints against harmful free radical damage and assist in the formation of cartilage and joint tissue.
Helps maintain healthy cartilage and joint tissue that support flexibility and mobility. also helps to prevent the breakdown of cartilage and avoid further joint damage.
Can be taken together with conventional pain relievers, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), and long term use of this produce may reduce the requirement for these drugs.
The sulfate content in this product should not pose a problem for those who have an allergy to sulfonamide antibacterial drugs. generally well tolerated. take it with food to minimize the possibility of digestive upsets.
Why you need to feed those joints!
Joint discomfort is often due to the breakdown of articular cartilage, inflammation and joint degeneration as a result of several factors, including aging, injuries, over-use, obesity and family history. key symptoms include joint stiffness, pain, swelling, tenderness, joint deformities and loss of mobility, often relieved with rest. joint problems occur most frequently in people in their 50s, 60s and 70s, mainly affecting the weight bearing joints (hips, knees, spine, feet) and hands. damaged cartilage results in the release of inflammatory compounds that further destroy the cartilage, resulting in pain and inflammation. continual inflammation can promote further damage and joint degeneration. it is important to check any joint problems with a healthcare professional.
Cartilage, a natural connective substance that cushions joints and acts as a shock absorber between the bones that make up the joint, is worn away through use or injury. cartilage must be replaced throught the availability of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate, natural compounds the body uses to help rebuild and replace the cartilage found in every joint.
Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are natural components of cartilage, ligaments and tendons. however, as we age, or as the result of injury to the cartilage or joint tissue, our ability to provide these natural substances declines, so supplementation may become an important option.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural organic source of bioavailable sulphur, an essential element found in nerve tissue, skin, hair and needed every day for healthy joints and tissues. sulphur is a key mineral to support the integrity of connective tissue, including skin and cartilage. it is also an important component of of intracellular antioxidants, such as glutathione.
Although used for centuries for its beneficial effects on muscle and joint mobility, sulphur’s real importance was not highlighted until the 1960’s when it underwent intense research. some of this research resulted in optimsm™, a special patented form of msm of the highest quality. more than 20 years research had confirmed the benefits of optimsm™ in a wide range of joint and other conditions. optimsm™ has shown remarkable benefits in improving joint mobility through its effects on maintaining the synovial fluid that provides joint lubrication. it allows the cartilage covering the ends of the bones to pass smoothly over each other.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long before the benefits of halal foods joint health complex with optimsm™ will be experienced?
This will depend upon the extent of cartilage loss. cartilage repair can be a slow process, so allow 2 – 12 weeks for real benefits.
How long do i need to keep taking this product?
when improvement is noted, the dose may be reduced. however, cartilage must be constantly replaced and if insufficient glucosamine and chondroitin are available to the joints, the symptoms may return, requiring long– term supplementation. there are several other joint care formulations in our range, some of which do not include msm, which is predominantly recommended for people experiencing a great deal of joint discomfort. once joint tenderness subsides, then use of these other products may be considered.
