Staying Active

Healthy joint function is something most of us take for granted, yet over the course of our life the structural components that comprise our joints, including bones, ligaments, muscles, cartilage, fluids, nerves and other components, can wear down. This everyday wear and tear can result in short-term, non-chronic aches and pains, which can affect overall quality of life.

If you want to stay active, it pays to take care of your joints. And one of the easiest ways to do so is to give them the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong.

Joint Health Superstars

While regular exercise and a healthy diet go a long way toward protecting and preserving normal joint function, there are a number of natural nutrients that can contribute to normal range of motion and pain-free movement. Two of the most effective and popular are glucosamine and chondroitin.

  • Glucosamine – Joints love glucosamine. This nutrient is an essential building block of the two main components of joint tissue, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans. Both promote water retention within joints. Water gives joint tissues resiliency by acting as a lubricant and a shock absorber.*

  • Chondroitin – We mentioned glycosaminoglycans previously; chondroitin is a glycosaminoglycan that’s normally found in many body tissues, including the articular cartilage found in joints. Glycosaminoglycans promote water retention for lubrication and shock absorption.*

In dietary supplements there are two different forms of both glucosamine and chondroitin that are used – hydrochloride and sulfate. The sulfate forms of both nutrients are the ones used most often in scientific studies, so we choose to use the sulfate forms in the majority of our products. However, we do utilize the hydrochloride, or HCl, form in certain products where a more concentrated form is desirable.
