Glucosamine + Chondroitin + MSM provides glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and MSM, combined with vitamin C and manganese for optimizing joint health. 

Glucosamine, a naturally occurring amino sugar synthesized in the body from L-glutamine and glucose, stimulates the manufacture of glycosaminoglycans, which are important components of cartilage.1,2 Sources of glucosamine from the exoskeleton of certain shellfish are available as glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, and N-acetyl-glucosamine. The sulfated form may most effectively incorporate sulfur into the cartilage.3

Glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins allow cells in tissues to hold together. They are necessary for the construction and maintenance of virtually most connective tissues and lubricating fluids in the body.4 A combination of N-acetyl-glucosamine bound to glucuronic acid is polymerized to make the joint lubricant known as hyaluronic acid.

Chondroitin sulfate provides the structural components of joint cartilage and facilitates the entry of glucosamine into joints. Like glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate attracts water into the cartilage matrix and helps stimulate the production of cartilage.
Research suggests that chondroitin, in combination with glucosamine sulfate, has a positive effect on subchondral bone structural changes and may help support repair processes following accessory joint tissue injury.5-6 These agents may help maintain healthy joints and reduce joint discomfort and stiffness.7

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a sulfur-containing molecule found in various plants and some body tissues. MSM is a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails. It is a natural and efficient source of the sulfur that is used by many of the body’s molecules.8 Peer-reviewed clinical research in the U.S. has shown MSM is safe and effective in increasing joint comfort and supporting a normal range of motion.9

Together, glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM support healthy joints.10
