Quantity per Container: 120 Capsules
Glucosamine + MSM® Forte™ capsules contain 500 mg of pure glucosamine sulfate and 250 mg of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM®). Ascorbic acid, proanthocyanidins, and bromelain are also included to provide additional aid in maintaining the health of aging joints.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in glycosoaminoglycans, integral components of the proteoglycans found in joint cartilage. Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate rich structures that provide resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive and lubricating properties to joints and connective tissues. The availability of glucosamine is an integral part of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that are necessary during the constant remodeling that aging cartilage undergoes. Thus, the maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced deposition of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used for connective tissue metabolism than other glucosamine sources, such as cartilage extracts or chondroitin sulfate. In summary, glucosamine sulfate is a well recognized, highly effective source of glucosamine for glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues, such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone.
MSM® helps maintain normal immune response, lung function, connective tissue metabolism, and muscle contraction. MSM® occurs naturally in a variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, milk, and fish. However, MSM® is volatile and easily lost during cooking. MSM® is very well absorbed by the intestinal tract and rapidly distributed within the body.
Although vitamin C has numerous biological functions, foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycan which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as joint cartilage, tendons, blood vessels, skin, and bone. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the cross linking of collagen fibers -lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases. Consequently, vitamin C is essential for the normal structure and function of connective tissue.
Scientifically formulated, pharmaceutical grade supplements meet or exceed the highest standards of excellence from formulation through raw materials testing and current good manufacturing processes (cGMP). Third party independent testing assures superior quality, enhanced absorption, purity, potency, efficacy and truth in labeling.
