Joint Essentials, with a pleasant taste of lemonade, contains a wide range of important ingredients to support bone and joint health1,2,3. This is an original formulation, based on years of research by nutritional scientists which is designed to:
- Maintain connective tissue
- Contribute to the normal function of cartilage
- Contribute to the normal function of bones
As we learn more about science, nutrition and the body, we see that everything is interdependent. There is no one magic superfood. No bodily system works in isolation from the whole. We have evolved to get a hugely varied diet and everything that happens in the body is a result of complex, interdependent reactions at cellular level.
Therefore, to keep everything working as it should, we need a diversity of proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients to interact at cellular level. That’s why Joint Essentials brings together lots of carefully chosen ingredients, which work separately and together, to support osteo-health3,4 in a fuller, more effective way. These include:
Collagen – A protein present in skin, bone, tendons and muscle.
MSM – Provides the important mineral sulfur
Glucosamine – produced in the body, can be found in the connective tissues.
Chondroitin – a building block of cartilage
Vitamin D3 – to support the absorption of calcium for bone health4 while Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
Copper – to contribute to the maintenance of normal connective tissues
A selection of B vitamins to support the nervous system and energy yielding metabolism5.
Essential trace minerals such as zinc and selenium and antioxidants including Vitamin C and E which help protect the cells from oxidative stress6.
