BENEFITS: Protocol For Life Balance Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM combinesthree of the most researched and effective nutrients for supporting joint health in one dietarysupplement. Studies have shown that these nutrients provide dietary components that support healthy joint structure and function.*
Protocol for Life Balance Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM combines the most effectivenutrients known for their action in supporting healthy joint and connective tissue.
Glucosamine is an amino monosaccharide produced by chondrocyte cells (the cells found incartilage that are responsible for the synthesis, maintenance, and regeneration of cartilage)and used to make glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans. GAGs and proteoglycansare the structural molecules that make up the connective tissues of the skin, tendons,ligaments, and joints. Glucosamine supplementation helps to provide the building blocks ofthese structural molecules, thereby supporting the maintenance of healthy joint tissues.
Chondroitin sulfate is another very important naturally occurring constituent of cartilage tissue.Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to work along with glucosamine to encourage healthycartilage production.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic form of the mineral sulfur, found naturally inplants. Sulfur, provided by MSM, is widely recognized in promoting healthy skin, joints, bone,hair and nails. Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM can help to support healthy joint andconnective tissue.*
Cautions and Interactions Persons with known allergies to shellfish should not take this product. The only side effectsreported with chondroitin sulfate usage appear to be mild gastrointestinal incidents. Similaradverse reactions have been reported with glucosamine and MSM, yet both of thesecompounds also are often suggested as supporting GI-tract health and function. It wasthought that glucosamine might adversely affect insulin sensitivity, but clinical trials havedisproven this.
The use of MSM can lead to the occurrence of an abnormal resonance in the in vivo brainproton MR spectrum as well as in an in vitro cerebrospinal fluid NMR study, hence should berevealed prior to undergoing these or related diagnostic tests.
