Joint-Glide™ Mobility Complex:
* Cetylmyristoleate (CMO) is a substance similar to fatty acids that has been shown to aid in joint lubrication and mobility, and has also been shown to have some marked anti-inflammatory properties.
* Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapples that works by blocking harmful metabolites such as leukotrienes and neutrophils that accelerate and worsen the inflammatory process. Bromelain has been successfully used to alleviate pain and inflammation resulting from sports injuries, trauma, arthritis, and other kinds of swelling.
* Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring substance used to treat pain and mobility issues in the joints, and is believed to increase the viscosity of joint fluid (synovial fluid); hence lubricating and cushioning the joint and producing an analgesic effect.
* Bioperine® is a pure form of piperine that is derived from the black pepper that promotes nutrient absorption by interacting with the surface of the intestinal tract. The use of Bioperine greatly enhances the effectiveness of the other compounds in Osteo-Sport by slowing their absorption for more consistent, complete utilization.
CQC² Joint Regeneration Matrix™
* Cissus Quadrangularis is an Ayurvedic herb that has been shown to accelerate healing in bone fractures, and taking cissus can also mitigate tendon, ligament, joint and cartilage damage; acting as an analgesic while at the same time inhibiting inflammation-related damage.
* Curcumin (turmeric) is another Ayurvedic herb historically used as a remedy for joint pain and arthritis, and has also been used to treat a variety of inflammation-based ailments.
* Glucosamine Sulfate is commonly used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, and because it is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, which major active components of joint cartilage. By increasing glycosaminoglycans, users of supplemental glucosamine may help to rebuild cartilage and slow or halt the advancement of certain types of arthritis.
* Chondroitin Sulfate has a number of positive effects including acting as an anti-inflammatory. It stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid to promote greater joint lubrication. It also helps decrease the catabolic activity of chondrocytes, which helps minimize joint tissue degradation over time.
* MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) The sulfur found in MSM helps maintain the structure of connective tissue by forming cross-linkages through disulfide bonds, i.e., sulfur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is an important compound in immune function and tissue repair. It is required for the synthesis of important neurotransmitters, amino acids, and the synthesis of connective tissues.
