Doctor's Best Synergistic Glucosamine/MSM Formula, Sodium Free, Capsules 180-Count
Glucosamine Sulfate, MSM, and Vitamin C Support Healthy Joint Function*Glucosamine sulfate (GS) supports joint function by supplying the body with dietary ingredients (glucosamine and sulfur) for building joint cartilage. Glucosamine, an amino sugar that is essential to the glycosaminoglycans found in cartilage and synovial fluid, stimulates chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to manufacture cartilage building blocks known as proteoglycans. These building blocks contribute to the maintenance of sound joint structure, ultimately enhancing healthy joint function. Additionally, glucosamine inhibits unhelpful catabolic enzymes and can aid in the balance of interleukin-1β levels in synovial fluid. A recent in vitro investigation examining the molecular biology of chondrocytes found 18 different proteins that were modulated by glucosamine sulfate. In conjunction with other studies, this new evidence suggests that GS fights cytokine-mediated oxidative stress in chondrocytes. Sulfur is a mineral that maintains the structural stability and strength of various tissues by forming sulfur "tie-bars" (sulfhydryl bonds) between connective tissue proteins. MSM supplies the body with nature's primary source of organic bioavailable sulfur. Vitamin C is required for reactions that occur during the production of collagen, an important component of joints, tendons, and skin. An adequate supply of Vitamin C enhances the normal maintenance of these structures. Why Is Potassium-Stabilized Glucosamine Sulfate Preferable?In order for glucosamine sulfate to be processed for oral intake as a supplement, it must be stabilized with either sodium or potassium to become bioavailable. Either mineral works for this purpose, yet potassium is preferable because the Standard American Diet tends to be high in sodium and low in potassium. Furthermore, studies have shown that people needing joint support are often also low in both salivary potassium and total body potassium.
