Glucosamine Sulfate?
 
Glucosamine is the main compound of glucosamine sulfate (proteoglycan). It acts like a spring within the joint cartilage. After the age of 40, the body’s ability to make glucosamine decreases dramatically; this is the major contributing factor to the development of osteoarthritis. This results in cartilage erosion, narrowed joint space, inflammation, stiffness and deformity. When taken orally as a supplement, glucosamine sulfate acts as an anti-arthritic agent by providing the connecting matrix between the protein filaments in cartilage.
Clinical studies have shown evidence that glucosamine:
 

•  Slows or halts cartilage erosion (Kwoh CK, et al. 2014)
•  Reduces pain,swelling, stiffness (Kwoh CK, et al. 2014)
•  Increases hyaluronic acid, which increases joint viscosity and improves the joint’s shock absorption.          
•  Increases collagen synthesis by chondrocytes
•  Is a safer choice than NSAIDS.
 
 
 
What is MSM?
 
Methylsulfonylmethane is an organosulfur compound, providing sulfur, which is a vital building block to for joints, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. Sulfur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint by maintaining the disulfide bonds of connective tissue between joints. MSM also provides methyl groups that support many vital biochemical processes in the body, including energy production. MSM is a naturally-occurring nutrient that has proven to be useful for osteoarthritis and other joint inflammatory conditions, as it relieves pain and stabilizes cartilage. Formulated and manufactured specifically to relieve joint pain and protect against the deterioration of cartilage. Glucosamine and MSM, when taken together, are shown to provide greater joint comfort and pain relief than when taken alone.
