Healthy cartilage needs three things: water for lubrication and nourishment, proteoglycans to attract and hold the water and collagen to keep the proteoglycans in place. Glucosamine is a major building block of the water-loving proteoglycans.
Where glucosamine helps form the proteoglycans that sit within the space in the cartilage, chondroitin sulphate acts like “iquid magnets”. Chondroitin is a long chain of repeating nigans that attracts fluid into the proteoglycan molecules. This is important for two reasons. 1.) The fluid acts as a spongy shock absorber, sweeping nutrients into the cartilage. Joint cartilage has no blood supply thus all of its nourishment and lubrication comes from the fluid that ebbs and flows as pressure is applied and released to the joint. 2.) Without this fluid, cartilage would become malnourished, drier, thinner and more fragile.
MSM is a naturally occurring nutrient and sulfur compound. Sulfur is a component of bones, teeth and collagen (the protein in connective tissue). The mineral sulfur is needed for the manufacture of many proteins, including those forming hair, muscles, and skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is plentiful in our bodies when we are born, but its levels gradually recede over time. Hyaluronic Acid occurs in the deeper layers of our skin known as the dermis and it appears to help keep the skin smooth because of its water retention qualities. Hyaluronic Acid also effectively helps repair skin wounds. In joints, Hyaluronic Acid’s function is to cushion and lubricate.
Boswellia serrata (Sallai Guggal) is an ancient sap-producing tree that is grown throughout Western and Central China. A purified extract of its resin is used in modern herbal preparations. The active compound in boswellia sap is boswellic acid, a long-standing herbal supplement for joint care.
Known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D3 can be found in small amounts in a few foods, including fatty fish such as herring, mackerel, sardines and tuna, but most Vitamin D (80% to 90% of what the body gets) is obtained through exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D regulates calcium, and is important for bone mineralization and bone homeostasis.
