You may not be familiar with cartilage‚ but it plays a key role throughout your body. It is connective tissue that is tough and strong but flexible‚ and is commonly found in joints. Thinning or nearly nonexistent cartilage can cause the bones in your knees‚ wrists‚ or other joints to rub against each other; this can cause pain when you move‚ reducing your range of motion and preventing you from exercising or performing the activities you love.
Since cartilage does not contain blood vessels‚ it grows and repairs itself more slowly than muscles or other connective tissues. If you need additional support‚ a supplement such as Pure Encapsulations' Glucosamine + Chondroitin with Manganese may help you maintain healthy and comfortable joints.
Chondroitin sulfate helps build proteoglycans‚ molecules that make up the ground substance of cartilage. Meanwhile‚ glucosamine helps your body synthesize chondroitin. Glucosamine may also maintain the integrity of your cartilage through its support for the activity of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes.
Manganese‚ a trace mineral‚ is also provided by Glucosamine + Chondroitin with Manganese. It works with the other ingredients in order to encourage antioxidant activity and further support joint mobility‚ comfort‚ and functioning. Finally‚ magnesium ascorbate promotes the effective formation of collagen.
Each capsule of Glucosamine + Chondroitin with Manganese contains glucosamine HCl from shrimp and crab‚ as well as bovine chondroitin.
Start with an initial dose of three capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals for two to three weeks. Afterwards‚ take the maintenance dose of two capsules daily‚ divided and taken with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Glucosamine + Chondroitin with Manganese by Pure Encapsulations should last for about two months.
