Maintain Your Flexibility
Healthy joints can help you maintain an active lifestyle. Joint stiffness from exercise and the normal activities of an active life can be a big annoyance, which is why maintaining healthy joints is essential.
Four supplement ingredients for healthy joints
There are four supplement ingredients touted for their healthful effects on joints: Chondroitin Sulfate is a part of a large protein molecule that gives cartilage elasticity. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is believed to assist in cartilage formation and the repair and in the lubrication of the joints. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a biologically active form of sulfur shown to be effective at supporting joint health*. And Celadrin® is a proprietary combination of esterified fatty acids that has been shown to promote joint health and ease minor or temporary discomfort due to the normal activities of an active life*. Many pills contain one or even two of these supplements, but FLX contains all four.
- Chondroitin Chondroitin was first extracted, purified and analyzed in the 1960s. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is derived from natural sources of cartilage. It was first extracted and purified in the 1960s. Chondroitin sulfate works synergistically and has a history of use for strengthening the durability of the cartilage matrix
- Glucosamine was initially prepared in 1876 by Georg Ledderhose by the hydrolysis of chitin with concentrated acid. It is a natural product derived from the exoskeletons of shrimp and crawfish. It works synergistically with chondroitin to strengthen and to stimulate the production of cartilage.
- Celadrin First introduced and discovered by Harry W. Diehl, PhD in the 1960s, Celadrin complex is a blend of esterifed fatty acids in a base of fatty acids. Celadrin functions in joints supporting range of motion, flexibility, and performance.
- MSM A naturally occurring organically bound sulfur compound. The term, “organically bound” refers to the nature of the configuration of sulfur with carbon groups to create a more readily available and absorbable compound. Sulfur plays a major role as a component in the body’s structural elements (bone, cartilage, collagen) as well as the biochemical pathways of amino acids, proteins, and enzymes that build the structural elements of the joint ingredients.
