I have been seeing a lot of questions about joint supplementation lately so I figured I might as well post up theTech writeup for new and veteran members to read over.
Osteo-Sport™ is a state-of-the-art, time-release joint replenishment formula that provides virtually immediate results that improve over time. Osteo-Sport™ combines a series of carefully selected and proportioned co-factors that provide dramatically superior joint mobility, lubrication, recuperation, and overall health to any other joint support available today.
The proprietary Joint-Glide™ Mobility Complex promotes more lubricated and well-cushioned joints, allowing them to function with significantly decreased pain and discomfort. The complex combines Cetylmyristoleate (CMO), , Bioperine, and to form a that allows for greater joint cushioning, flexibility, and mobility in all types of activities; whether it be running, contact sports, or simply for overall health. Cetylmyristoleate (CMO) was discovered in 1972 by Harry W. Diehl, Ph.D., a researcher at the National Institute of Health. It 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 found in many tissues of the body, such as skin and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid is 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. It has also been suggested that hyaluronic acid has positive biochemical effects on cartilage cells. 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.
The CQC˛ Joint Regeneration Matrix™ of Osteo-Sport™ contains the blend of cutting-edge herbal components along with several different proven substances that augment joint health and longevity. The matrix utilizes , a unique, versatile herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Native to the warmer climates of Ceylon and India, cissus is documented in Ayurvedic texts as a powerful analgesic that has the ability to inhibit stress-induced glucocorticoid activity. Cissus 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. The blend also utilizes (turmeric); 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. It is thought to work as a natural inhibitor of the cox-2 enzyme, and has been shown effective in animal models for neuropathic pain secondary to diabetes and other ailments. is another important component of the blend. Glucosamine is commonly used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, and because it is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans. Glycosaminoglycans are important because they are a major active component of joint cartilage. By increasing glycosaminoglycans, users of supplemental glucosamine may help to rebuild cartilage and treat arthritis.
Chondroitin Sulfate is another beneficial substance found in Osteo-Sport™. Chondroitin has a number of positive characteristics including: acts as an anti-inflammatory; stimulations the synthesis of proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid (synergism w/ hyaluronic acid) to promote greater joint lubrication; and decreases the catabolic activity of chondrocytes, which helps minimize joint tissue degradation over time.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is also a contributing factor to the effectiveness of Osteo-Sport™. Individuals taking MSM have reported significantly reduced joint pain, increased mobility, and improved physical functioning by delivering sulfur to the body in a useable way. 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 the final component of Osteo-Sport™. 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. Vitamin C also has strong antioxidant properties, enhances iron absorption, and is needed for the formation of cholesterol-based hormones.
Osteo-Sport™ is the ultimate product for joints because it addresses the problem from multiple angles. The unique blend of ingredients is unlike anything else on the supplement market today, and combines components that promote improved lubrication and mobility, speed healing and regeneration and support an environment conducive to overall joint health and longevity. plus in a sustained-release formulation. Osteo-Sport™ is a TRUE sustained-release formula that begins working immediately and continues to work better and better over time. The product contains three different release factor categories:
1. Factor A Rapid-Release (comprised of , , Bromelain, Vitamin C, and Bioperine)
2. Factor B Intermediate Release (CMO, Hyaluronic Acid, and MSM)
3. Factor C Extended Release (Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate)
To get an even better understanding of why Osteo-Sport is so effective, we must explore the theory of Factor Interaction and how these three factors can produce a synergistic effect that increases over time, making Osteo-Sport something that can remedy short-term and chronic joint issues while helping to prevent new damage from occurring. The very design of Osteo-Sport is simple: It is a product that works right away, yet continues to work in an additive fashion that continues to be effective and even improve over long periods of time; therefore it is a staple product that can be taken indefinitely much like a multivitamin. The chart below demonstrates the flow of the time release:
