Joint Relief to the Rescue!
If you have arthritis or other joint issues, you know how much pain it can cause and how it can slow you down. Solaray Glucosamine Chondroitin with Hyaluronic Acid can help you improve your joint health – with pure, fresh ingredients. That includes 1,500 mg of Glucosamine, an amino and building block that your body needs to produce specialized molecules in your cartilage to lubricate your joints and nourish cartilage and connective tissue; plus 1,000 mg of Chondroitin to provide additional structural support because of its extensive interaction with collagen fibers; and 20 mg of Hyaluronic Acid, a jelly-like substance that functions as a lubricant and cushion and is most prevalent in your joints, eyes and skin.
Pain, Pain, Go Away!
Glucosamine occurs naturally in your cells and is a pivotal component in the synthesis of connective tissue and your mobility, knees, and other joints. It has been shown to improve symptoms of osteoarthritis better than NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) and has demonstrated success in relieving pain and narrowing joint spaces in osteoarthritis patients. Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied worldwide for their roles in joint health. Glucosamine assists the body's tissues by producing proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are an integral part of collagen and are important in maintaining healthy joint flexibility and resilience.
Hydration for Your Joints
Moisture is critical for your joints, both for lubrication – similar to how oil lubricates and engine – and for cushioning – similar to the shocks on your vehicle – as you move about through your busy days. The Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in this Solaray formula is responsible for drawing water molecules into your joints to keep your tissues well-lubricated and moist. The Glucosamine and Chondroitin work with HA to form a gel-like “goo” that pads your joints. The Hyaluronic Acid used in this formula comes from microbial fermentation, and Vitamin C has been added to help enhance its absorption.
Glucosamine Chondroitin is one of the most common nutritional supplements that athletes use – especially athletes with arthritis. In one study of athletes with acute knee injuries, taking a Glucosamine supplement like Solaray Glucosamine Chondroitin with Hyaluronic Acid resulted in significant improvement in knee flexion an extension – after just 28 days – compared to a placebo group!
Care for Your Skin
Adding Solaray Glucosamine Chondroitin with Hyaluronic Acid to your daily regimen is also a great option if you’re looking to improve the quality of your skin and skin cells. It has been shown to improve skin hydration, accelerate wound healing – and even help decrease wrinkles! Because it inhibits tyrosinase activation, which, in turn, inhibits melanin production, Glucosamine also is used to help treat people with hyperpigmentation disorders.
