The human body needs an array of compounds in order to maintain healthy joints and connective tissues. Without proper support‚ you may not be able to move comfortably. A supplement such as Pure Encapsulations' Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM may promote healthy cartilage‚ which can contribute to a better range of motion‚ less pain‚ and decreased stiffness or inflammation.
This product contains chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine HCl; the latter helps the body synthesize the former. Chondroitin is a glycosaminoglycan that promotes the production of proteoglycans‚ which are molecules that serve as the building blocks of cartilage. Cartilage itself is a form of flexible connective tissue‚ which is found between bones and other parts of the body; Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM may boost its growth rate‚ since the lack of blood vessels causes it to repair itself more slowly than other tissues.
Meanwhile‚ glucosamine can promote the integrity of cartilage. Weakened cartilage decreases the amount of cushioning between bones in the knees‚ elbows‚ and other joints; as a result‚ they may rub against each other painfully. Glucosamine helps maintain healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme activity to alleviate this problem.
Finally‚ MSM is sulfur-containing methylsulfonylmethane. MSM might promote the comfort and functioning of joints‚ along with the other ingredients found in Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM. The sulfur in particular may enhance the strength of proteoglycans‚ therefore maintaining cartilage tissue. In some cases‚ it may work to alleviate mild joint stiffness that keeps you from staying active‚ especially during the aging process.
Take three capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 240-capsule bottle of Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM by Pure Encapsulations should last for about three months.
