JOINT PROTECT IS FORMULATED TO PROTECT AND REPAIR DAMAGED JOINTS AND CONNECTIVE TISSUE. INFLAMMATION IS ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF JOINT PAIN IN ATHLETES, PNI HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THIS IN THE FORMULATION OF THIS PRODUCT.
Joint protect is filled with 7 active joint supporting and inflammation decreasing ingredients to help those who have struggled with a previous or current injury, or just find that there joints don't work as well as they used too!
Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme which derives from bacteria native to the silkworm’s digestive system. It is known for its benefits as a non-prescription anti-inflammatory, and therefore a key ingredient in any joint support formulation.
Glucosamine is a supplement in which is derived from shellfish. It can be found in most joint health supplements, as a large volume of studies have shown it will reduce the rate of collagen (joint tissue) degradation and symptoms of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is comparable in potency to acetaminophen, acetaminophen being the reference drug for osteoarthritis
Turmeric is a spice commonly used in Curry, which has Curcumin and the Curcuminoids as the main bioactive compounds. Turmeric itself is fairly healthy and has other bio-actives in it. It has been shown to support healthy inflammatory function thereby maintaining overall health and vitality.
Do you keep ginger in your spice cabinet? Maybe it should be in your medicine cabinet. Besides being a tasty spice often used to enhance holiday treats, ginger can soothe upset stomachs and diminish nausea, and studies have even shown it may help alleviate pain and inflammation.
Recent studies have shown that ginger’s anti-inflammatory benefits come from its compounds called gingerols. The studies suggest that gingerols work by inhibiting CO-X2, which is a pro-inflammatory enzyme.
Even more interesting, are the results from a double blind, placebo controlled study done which shown that ginger reduced pain in 63% of the patients receiving ginger supplements compared to 50% receiving placebo.
Another study showed that supplementing ginger can help to alleviate muscle pain caused by exercise.
Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) is a small sulphur containing molecule which is included specifically for both its anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties.
MSM contains a lot of sulphur (34% by weight), which is thought to be delivered to the body in a useable way, as sulphur helps maintain the structure of connective tissue by forming cross-linkages through disulphide bonds, i.e., sulpur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint.
Sulphur is critical to good joint health. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are the fundamental building blocks of joint cartilage, and GAG molecules are linked together in chains by disulphide bonds. As the name implies, these bonds are between two sulpur atoms. The disulphide bridges reduce conformational flexibility of GAG chains, making cartilage firm and resilient. Cartilage integrity is thus a sulphur-dependent state.
Celadrin is an all-natural product, which has been clinically approved as a pain management and anti-inflammatory treatment. It is a compound that will enhance the cell membranes all throughout the body and therefore provides cell fluidity and elasticity, as a result of this extra fluid that the body gains, it will help to act as a cushion so to speak for the bones and joints, giving them more flexibility to move around, pain free. Celadrin's compound is made up of different fatty acid carbons, which have been arranged in a certain way to achieve maximum treatment for healthy joints. It has also been known to work very fast, within 30 minutes in fact as a pain relief. The Celadrin compound provides constant lubrication for the joints allowing the cell membranes to stop the inflammatory chemicals. It also helps to stop the chemicals attacking the membrane which makes the joints stiffen, to gain more flexibility.
Boswellia Serrata is a gum resin in which is extracted from a tree. Studies have shown Boswellia extract to have a number of anti-inflammatory properties. These anti-inflammatory effects have been investigated for their benefits in osteoarthritis, and it appears that oral Boswellia supplements can both suppress the pain and the immobility associated with osteoarthritis quite significantly with the effects taking as little as a week to occur.
