Decreases "aging aches and pains" due to arthritis and general wear and tear that comes with aging.
Joint Health is an all-important natural nutritional supplement with vitamin-like effects that promote normal growth and repair mechanisms in the body. The main ingredient is MSM, an important anti-inflammatory nutrient. Inflammation is considered to be the single most common cause of illness. MSM is so effective that you may be able to decrease/discontinue use of prescription pain medication.
MSM's name is Methylsulfonylmethane. MSM occurs naturally in the body, but you also obtain it by ingesting fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. However, processing, including heating and dehydration, destroys the compound making it totally different and ineffective. MSM is important to healthy joint and skin, connective tissue, muscles, hair and nails. You may notice softer skin; thicker hair; stronger nails; decrease in scare tissue; relief from constipation; and additional energy when taking Joint Health. Joint Health is used for chronic pain, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, tendentious, musculoskeletal pain, muscle cramps, scleroderma, scar tissue, stretch marks, hair loss, wrinkles, protections against sun/wind burn, eye inflammation, oral hygiene, periodontal disease, and accelerated wound healing.
Joint Health has also been used to treat stomach aches, ulcers, diverticulosis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) mood elevation, poor circulation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, liver problems, Alzheimer's disease, emphysema, chronic fatigue syndrome, and any other auto-immune disorders, especially Lupus. Research has shown a distinct relationship with the treatment in breast/colon cancer for slowing it down, which is very promising for the future. Joint Health reduces stomach acid and a hypersensitivity to some drugs, such as aspirin and non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs.
Taking Joint Health by mouth before running (marathon, 5K, etc.) has been seen to reduce muscle damage and other markers of stress caused by extreme exercise. And, of course, the greatest aid is helping to reduce the symptoms of arthritis by increasing movement in the joints and decreasing pain caused by movement. You know the cliché, "A body that stays still, remains still; the body that stay in motion, remains in motion." And isn't that we all want, HOWEVER, without the aches and pains? So often we think of Joint Health for the elderly, but understanding the above, we now know that Joint Health covers a variety of issues, not just the discomfort of the joints.
Note: If you have an allergy to Sulfur or Sulfonamides, it would be wise to check with your personal Health Care Provider before taking Joint Health.
