DrVita Ultra Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM
DrVita Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM is a triple-powered joint support formula that supplies vital building blocks for maximum joint health, and joint rebuilding all in one formula. Glucosamine Sulfate is a natural compound manufactured by the body that is needed for healthy cartilage building and good synovial joint fluid lubrication. Glucosamine sulfate supports joint mobility and flexibility better than Glucosamine hydrochloride in studies lasting six months and one year.
Glucosamine sulfate is rapidly absorbed by the body and taken into the synovial fluids of the joints where it can increase Glucosamine joint levels by up to 20%. It positively influences the biology of damaged tissues by blocking the effects of inflammatory compounds such as nitric oxide, COX-2 and other toxins.
What does Glucosamine do?
Glucosamine is naturally produced by us but the production drops with age, and supplementing with Glucosamine sulfate shows that it is rapidly absorbed up to 90% and directly incorporated into joint fluids. Aging slows the production and repair of cartilage, which wears out with age. Cartilage is in our joints to protect against bone-to-bone contact to maintain and lubricate joints and cartilage, allowing for comfort and relaxed movement. Glucosamine sulfate provides that lubrication. DrVita Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM supplies 1,500 mg. of Glucosamine sulfate in a four capsule daily serving.
Studies show that Glucosamine sulfate works synergistically with Chondroitin to rebuild joint cartilage and are the most extensively studied. Many clinical studies tested chondroitin sulfate together with glucosamine.The results suggest that both components enhance each other's efficacy. Significant improvement in pain and joint mobility, daily living improvements and a decrease in joint cartilage thickness between the bones has been shown time and again in studies going out to one year.
Chondroitin is effective at rebuilding cartilage in numerous trials and works in two ways - it slows the progression of cartilage loss and stimulates the rebuilding of new cartilage between the bone joints. Chondroitan is an essential component of cartilage, just as Glucosamine is. They both have structure-modifying effects in knee cartilage as demonstrated in X-ray and ultrasound tests. Chondroitan works synergistically with Glucosamine to increase joint mobility by regenerating healthy joint structure.
Their joint protective action can be explained by these two mechanisms that slow the progression of cartilage destruction and help to regenerate the joint structure, leading to increased mobility of the affected joint. DrVita Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM provides 1,200 mg of Chondroitin sulfate in a daily serving.
Many properties have been attributed to MSM, including blocking levels of prostacyclin (an inflammatory molecule), improvement in functional use of knee joints, increased joint mobility, reduction in stiffness and an improvement in performing activities of daily living. MSM provides sulfur, a necessary component in the building of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails. MSM also quenches free radicals and helps prevent cell membrane damage. MSM acts more potently when combined with Glucosamine and Chondroitin in human clinical trials. DrVita Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM supplies 1,000 mg. of MSM in a daily serving for maximum potency.
