Joint Comfort† Do you know how much weight is placed on your joints each time you take a step? One and one-half times your body weight. That is pretty scary! Lucky for us, each joint has something called “articular cartilage” which absorbs most of the pressure. It not only acts as a shock absorber, but also as a “teflon” coating over the surface of the joint. Glycosaminoglycans (bet you can’t say that three times in a row) are a very distinctive protein designed to give connective tissue its structural qualities. Cartilage is continually being broken down and replaced. When cartilage is being broken down faster than it can be replaced, problems may occur.
JointSolution™ Over a period of time, wear and tear associated with normal aging begins to take its toll. Both situations can lead to cracks and fissures within the articular cartilage. These fissures combined with the prostaglandins the body produces can cause uncomfortable feelings.
Glucosamine – A precursor of glycosaminoglycans, it displays chondroprotective qualities.
Boswellin – Interferes with the production of prostaglandins.
Bromelain – Is found in the stem of the pineapple. A protecyltic enzyme, bromelain breaks up large, negatively charged proteins which attract fluid such as histamine and bradykinin.
Quercetin – An extremely active bioflavonoid which inhibits the manufacture and release of histamine. It also acts as an antioxidant, sparing Vitamin C for other actions.
Curcumin C3 Complex® – Inhibits prostaglandin production. (There are three types of prostaglandins. The wrong type can cause uncomfortable feelings.)
Devil’s Claw – Its active compound irioid glucoside can be helpful.
Yucca Root – Long used by Native Americans.
Joint Solution™ is available in a convenient 120 capsule bottle. As with all their products, Highland Laboratories uses only the highest quality ingredients.
Alfalfa – Known as “the food of the Gods”, alfalfa is an excellent source of vitamins A, D, and K; and the minerals iron and calcium.
