Blackmores Joint Formula 60s
Blackmores Joint Formula Advanced has been specially formulated to contain the most scientifically validated form of glucosamine and a high strength dose of chondroitin. Chondroitin sulphate is found in cartilage and helps joints resist compressive loads.
As we age, the wear and tear effects of many years of using our joints can become apparent. This may cause degenerative changes in the cartilage. Glucosamine and sulfate are natural components of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of the substances that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine sulfate as glucosamine sulfate sodium chloride complex supports healthy cartilage, joint mobility and comfort.
The ingredients in Blackmores Joint Formula Advanced - glucosamine, chondroitin, manganese and boron are research based and have been selected for overall joint health.
Glucosamine and sulphateare natural components of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of chondroitin sulphate and keratin sulphate that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units are important for cartilage's elasticity and shock-absorbing properties.
Glucosamine sulfate sodium chlorideis the most scientifically validated form of glucosamine. the research-based dosage for effect is 1500mg/day. This promotes joint comfort, function and mobility, and healthy cartilage production. It also helps maintain cartilage in ageing.
Chondroitin sulfateis a major component of the matrix of many connective tissues in humans, including cartilage, bone, skin, ligaments and tendons. The high content of chondroitin sulfate in cartilage helps joints naturally resist compression and plays an important role in normal lubrication and nutrition of the joint.
Manganeseis important for healthy production of cartilage and bone in addition to protecting cells from free radical damage.
Boronplays a role in the chemical makeup of bones and joints. Dietary sources of boron include vegetables and fruits, legumes, pulses and nuts. In areas of the world where dietary intake is 3-10mg/day, joints tend to remain healthy.
