Glucosamine HCL is a building block amino sugar for the glycosaminoglycans matrix (GAGs). GAGs give joint cartilage extra firmness while bearing weight. Its beneficial effects have been documented and established in several human and animal. Glucosamine supplements of every form are extracted from shellfish and have been proven to ease the discomfort of arthritis in clinical studies since 1980. It comes in several supplement forms including sulfate and Glucosamine HCL. Studies have also demonstrated Glucosamine’s effectiveness in soothing discomfort associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, bursitis, disc degeneration, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, and in reducing inflammatory response. It has also shown to be effective in repairing cartilage, tendons, and ligaments as well as healing wounds in the skin. Its effective application in pets has been demonstrated in assisting dogs with inflamed discs, siatic nerve, and joint inflammation associated with aging.
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is reported to enhance the structural integrity of connective tissue, and help reduce scar tissue by altering cross-linkages which contribute to scar formation. MSM has been shown as having powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties, blocking the pain perception in certain nerve fibers before the pain impulse reaches the brain.
Type II Chicken Collagen has been shown in studies and trials to help the body repair and rebuild joint cartilage - reducing joint pain, increasing joint mobility and flexibility, and promoting long-term joint health. Taken from the chicken's sternum cartilage, Type II Collagen is an innovative form of undenatured type II collagen that works with the immune system to reduce inflammation and restore cartilage (alongside glucosamine & chondroitin, which are materials involved in the structure of healthy cartilage). Extensive research and clinical studies have shown Type II to be both safe and effective in supporting joint health – and clarify how it helps the body derail a destructive process involved in both types of arthritis.
Ascorbic Acid functions as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger, is used for normal repair of tissue, and is used for collagen synthesis. In fact, it is vital for the synthesis of the connective tissue collagen, which is an integral part of cartilage. In addition, studies show that MSM is more effective when taken with Ascorbic Acid.
