WooHoo Natural Super Strength JOINT FLEX is specially formulated by combining the powerful healthy-joint compounds of Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfates, Type II Collagen, Boswellia Extract and MSM that help strengthen and lubricate joints, and supports the structure of bone, cartilage, skin, and other body tissues.
Glucosamine sulfate is produced naturally in the body, and is a simple molecule composed of glucose and amines (nitrogen and hydrogen molecules). The inability for some of us to produce glucosamine or the reduced production generally associated with age may be a leading factor in the development of osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that patients who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) felt better initially, but after three to six weeks, the group on glucosamine sulfate felt better.
Chondroitin sulfate consists of repeating chains of molecules called mucopolysaccharides. It is a major constituent of cartilage, providing structure, holding water and nutrients, and allowing other molecules to move through cartilage. Animal studies indicate that chondroitin sulfate can promote healing of bone.
Boswellia has been discovered that this herb contains certain substances called boswellic acids, which are known to have anti-inflammatory properties; therefore, Boswellia is often suggested as a treatment for bursitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis. Research shows that this herb may also protect cartilage from damage.
Collagen Type II is a food sourced supplement that holds a high concentration of joint-saving nutrients including hyaluronic acid (HA), glucosamine, and high levels of chondroitin, the major components of joint cartilage. These necessary elements support and maintain healthy joints and repair the damage that causes pain and swelling associated with arthritis. Chondroitin also acts as an anti-inflammatory compound and pain modulator without the negative side effects of non-steroidal medicines while enhancing the synthesis of cartilage and HA. Supplementing with Collagen Type II focuses on the regenerating effects for skin and connective tissue health.
MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a special biological sulfur found in all plants, soils, fruits, vegetables and meats. MSM is a natural substance that gives relief from joint pain, inflammation and allergies.
