Benefits

  • Promotes joint and tissue comfort and healthy aging.
  • Supports synergistic cartilage support and healthy cells.

Product Information

Men are more likely to suffer from joint discomfort than are women up to the age of 45, perhaps because men tend to engage in more strenuous physical activities. From age 45 to 55, however, men and women begin to suffer equally, while women are more likely to be faced with such challenges after the age of 55. Not only is joint discomfort more frequent in women age 55 or older, it is also more severe. Millions of women of all ages have joint discomfort and are affected twice as often as men.

Instead of simply dulling the pain with drugs or performing expensive and potentially dangerous surgery, many doctors in Europe and Asia (as well as a small but rapidly-growing group in the United States) are actually increasing joint comfort through nutrition.

Since they are substances we already consume and produce in very small quantities in our bodies, glucosamine and chondroitin have no significant side effects. This fact stands in stark contrast to painkillers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and cortisone injections.

In joints, the ground substance is known as synovial fluid. It is the substance that gives connective tissue and joints resilience after compression and also reduces friction between bones, tendon, and cartilage. Supplementation with glucosamine and chondroitin have been demonstrated to support maintenance of healthy synovial fluid levels.

Glucosamine and chondroitin essentially "jump-start" the production of key elements of the cartilage matrix. In other words, glucosamine and chondroitin strengthen your body's natural repair mechanisms. They can replace what your body fails to make.

MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane is a naturally-occurring compound found in green plants and animal products. MSM is typically used to support joint comfort. There is some evidence that MSM also promotes a healthy immune system during the changing of the seasons, by flushing irritants and promoting healthy cells.

Collagen is an important natural component of our skin's structure. It is also present in our joints, bones and ligaments. In young skin, collagen is abundant and imparts plumpness to the face and other areas of the body, such as our hands. As we age, the amount and quality of collagen in our body decreases, and as a result, wrinkles and creases begin to appear.

There is preliminary research that collagen supplements might help support collagen maintenance in people. Collagen supplements may also cause increased production of collagen by chondrocytes. Chondrocytes are the cells responsible for maintenance of the connective tissue in the joints.

Joint Complex offers the compounds many vets recommend for pets, particularly large dogs, suffering from creaky joints. Many members give their pets Joint Complex, tucked into a spoonful of peanut butter (or other tasty carrier).

Warnings

  • While glucosamine sulfate is often theorized to interfere with metabolism with type 2 diabetes, studies over three years using glucosamine hydrochloride (the form used in Joint Complex) did not show adverse effects on lipid or glucose metabolism.
  • High-dose glucosamine (3000 mg per day), combined with high-dose chondroitin sulfate (2400 mg per day), may enhance the effects of warfarin (Coumadin—an anticoagulent-antiplatelet drug).
Factoids
  • Glucosamine HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate are alternative forms of delivering glucosamine, with the sulfate form having been used for most clinical research. The HCL form delivers the same glucosamine (and benefits) as the sulfate form.
  • MSM is an odorless metabolite of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).
  • Pure chondroitin is a relatively large molecule, weighing about 16,900 daltons!
  • Applying chondroitin sulfate topically, in combination with sodium hyaluronate, to the eye is effective as a surgical aid in cataract extraction or lens implantation.
  • Collagen is also referred to as gelatin.

AMAZING! Knee pain gone! January 11, 2014
Reviewer: Kari R. from Lodi, CA United States  
The doctor prescribed several medicines for knee pain. Several times I thought my knee would give out when walking and I couldn't kneel without literally crying out. Nothing worked. He told me my only alternative was surgery. Within a month of taking Joint Complex, all the pain was gone!
