Natural Factors® glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates

Joint pain can cause a lot of discomfort and limit your mobility, but it doesn't have to. Natural Factors glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates help maintain joint health so you can get back to moving effortlessly and pain-free.

Pain in hands, back, knees or anywhere else prevent you from doing the things you love to do, whether it's running a marathon or playing with your grandchildren? Our bones and joints are purpose-built to cope with stress and impact, but even the strongest mechanisms wear out over time, causing pain, inflammation and, eventually, osteoarthritis. Fortunately, glucosamine and chondroitin can help you get back on your feet.

4.6 million Canadians and 50 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritisand many of them experience severe pain caused by wear and tear. To prevent bones from rubbing against each other during movement, joints are covered with cartilage and lubricating synovial fluid. Unfortunately, cartilage is not getting any better. As we age, cartilage breaks down faster than it can be repaired, and this process is often accelerated by wear and tear, oxidative stress, dehydration and poor nutrition. When cartilage breaks down, bones rub against each other, causing pain and stiffness, and eventually osteoarthritis.

For many people, arthritis seems inevitable. At the first signs of inflammation, they take over-the-counter anti-inflammatories to ease the pain, but these don't improve joint health. Despite what your knees might lead you to believe, your body is resilient. Good support can help you fight pain and restore joint health.

Healthy cartilage is mostly water (around 65-80%), and without a direct blood supply, dehydration of cartilage can quickly leave it fragile and susceptible to damage. Good hydration is essential for joint health; increased water intake promotes the production of cartilage and synovial fluid, which keeps joints lubricated so they can glide easily over each other. Anti-inflammatory spices such as turmeric and ginger and foods such as salmon, red peppers and berries (the more colorful the better!) help reduce swelling and prevent further damage.

The effects of diet, however, are limitedIt's up to supplements to stimulate cartilage production in your body and protect it from deterioration, while reducing pain. If only ibuprofen could do that! In fact, studies show that NSAID-type drugs such as ibuprofen can make arthritis worse instead of better, so you need more and more of them for pain relief. What's more, they cause all kinds of undesirable side effects.

Unlike other painkillers, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate from Natural Factors does more than just mask pain. These natural compounds get to the root of osteoarthritis by improving joint lubrication, encouraging repair of damaged connective tissue and relieving inflammation without the side effects of NSAIDs.

Glucosamine sulfate greatly relieves painIt significantly improves mobility and function, and can reduce the long-term progression of joint degeneration by 50%. It also helps produce chondroitin, a major ingredient of cartilage. Chondroitin helps create new cartilage and protects existing cartilage by inhibiting enzymes that destroy joint tissue. It retains water to rapidly rehydrate cartilage and stimulate __nutritional content, reducing the risk of joint damage. It also releases glucosamine, which can act to relieve pain by reducing the production of inflammatory factors such as cytokines, while producing synovial fluid to lubricate joints. The form of glucosamine is more important than you might think: always choose glucosamine sulfate, a form successfully used in dozens of clinical trials.

Glucosamine and chondroitin work better when combined, and can even halt the progression of osteoarthritis if the disease is diagnosed and treated before irreversible damage occurs. These powerful substances can prevent damage while helping to reduce inflammation to restore joint health. Since they're both naturally occurring substances, they're gentle on your body... But your body simply can't produce enough of them. They may also help thin the blood, so if you're taking medication, always consult your doctor before adding supplements to your health program.

If you're an athlete concerned about age-related osteoarthritis or suffer from joint pain and stiffness that prevents you from doing the things you love, Natural Factors Glucosamine with Chondroitin could be the solution for you.
