Joint Support

Have you noticed your joints starting to slow you down at times?  Maybe they’re stopping you from being quite as active as you’d like?  Have you ever wondered if there was anything you could do to take better care of them?

Maintaining comfortable, mobile joints is all about keeping your joint cartilage healthy.  Cartilage – the “shock absorber” between the bones – cushions your joints, keeping them mobile.  Unfortunately, daily life (or the occasional sports injury) can wear away at your cartilage, breaking it down.

When you were young, that probably wasn’t a problem – your body was constantly rebuilding damaged cartilage using two compounds it produced naturally: Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin; plus minerals like copper, manganese, zinc, selenium and boron.  As you grow older, however, your body produces less glucosamine and chondroitin; and not everyone gets enough joint health minerals in their diet to keep up with cartilage breakdown.
