Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM (Pure Encapsulations)
Cartilage‚ a variety of connective tissue found within the body‚ doesn't have a supply of blood flowing to it‚ nor does it have any nerves. It serves the purpose of providing structure and supporting other tissues. Although this connective tissue is durable‚ it's not as hard or rigid as bone matter; in fact‚ it's typically flexible and supplies your joints with cushioning. Since it doesn't have its own blood supply‚ it relies on the matrix located within the tissue for nutrients to pass through and be dispersed throughout it.
Your cartilage works with other parts of your body in order to support a wide range of motion. In fact‚ you have other forms of connective tissue that play vital roles in movement‚ along with your joints. Obviously‚ stretching and exercise will help your tissues and joints stay limber and healthy‚ but your body needs certain nutrients to support these functions‚ too. Although there are good dietary sources of these ingredients‚ you may want to consider taking a convenient supplement for extra insurance.
Glucosamine + Chondroitin with MSM by Pure Encapsulations is designed with this in mind to help your body. Each vegetable capsule provides the following ingredients:
- Glucosamine HCL (derived from crabs and shrimp)—may alleviate joint pain and stiffness‚ knee pain‚ and back pain. It's naturally found in cartilage in the human body‚ and this supplement may replenish any missing cartilage‚ since degenerative tissues are known to have less of this substance.
- Condroitin sulfate (derived from bovine sources)—a substance that's naturally found in the cartilage around the joints‚ which may have the potential to reduce stiffness and pain by providing additional cushioning.
