Your toes, ankles, knees, and hips handle a lifetime of walking. Similarly, your fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, back and neck perform an endless number of daily functions. The fact is that your joints are well-balanced, and under normal circumstances well-lubricated and effective pieces of machinery, but as with any machine, they work best when well-maintained.
Your body offers a maintenance program for your joints as a normal function that includes rebuilding and regenerating cartilage, which is an important factor in maintaining a shock absorbing type substance in your joint areas. As with so many areas of our body’s functions, as we grow older, gain weight, and experience repeated mechanical trauma to the joints, our body’s ability to produce some biochemical’s, in this case, the biochemical’s necessary for cartilage maintenance, declines. As you wear down or eliminate cartilage, we can experience great discomfort.
Glucosatrin with its special glucosamine HCI sulfate and herbal formula, provides an important nutritional approach for healthy joints and cartilage in one easy-to-take, affordable dietary supplement.
PAIN. YOU KNOW THE FEELING:
Ever twist an ankle? Fall and take a nasty bump from hitting a hard surface? How about break or fracture a bone? Odds are, you have experienced pain and your body’s inflammatory mechanisms in action. This is the area around the joints that gets red and puffy, feels hot and is tender to the touch.
TWO KINDS OF INFLAMMATORY MECHANISMS: ACUTE AND CHRONIC:
Inflammation is the normal reaction our bodies undergo in a response to a problem in your joints. The inflammation response of your body causes the area around the joints to swell and become painful. Over 40 million people suffer from inflammation of the joints. It is usually caused by joint weakness as a result of an injury to a joint from a mechanical trauma or autoimmune diseases, as well as a life’s worth of use.
Acute inflammation lasts a short time, but it is intense. Unattended, it can lead to chronic inflammation. Over time, loss of function can occur and the activities we love to do such as gardening, playing piano, writing a letter or taking a walk can become unpleasant. Joints with this kind of pain and limited flexibility can keep you from living freely because the inflammation can return again and again.
Chronic inflammation causes constant pain and swelling that can last for years. Chronic inflammation can weaken a substance called collagen and the connective tissue molecules associated with collagen. Collagen is a protein building block of connective tissues that includes cartilage and ligaments. It is essential for healthy joints. When collagen breaks down in the joint area, your cartilage may not be able to absorb the impact of an active lifestyle as effectively. Your ligaments can lose their flexibility. Fluid can accumulate in your joints, which may affect ease of movement.
GLUCOSATRIN PRODUCT INFORMATION:
Glucosatrin’s active ingredients can help play a role in controlling inflammation. It can also help with the regeneration of cartilage, including the tissue supporting the joints. Glucosatrin contains glucosamine sulfate, Scutellaria root, oleanolic acid and Boswellia resin.
Glucosamine is a small molecule that your body can absorb and use readily, and is naturally found in your joints. Glucosamine promotes the stability and flexibility of all your joint parts by acting as a chemical building block for cartilage. This biochemical promotes the regeneration of damaged cartilage which means it can help support healthy cartilage tissue.
Boswellia Resin is a purified extract from the large branching Boswellia tree of India. Its active constituents include boswellic acids. Boswellic acids have shown to inhibit certain enzymes that can generate inflammatory responses.
Oleanolic Acid comes from an extract of the Ligustrum plant. It is a cyclo-oxygenase (COX-2) inhibitor that is impoprtant to the maintenance of normal inflammatory response mechanisms.
Scutellaria Root is the dried root of the Scutellaria baicalensis plant. It also has COX-2 inhibitory activity that can play a role in both acute and chronic inflammation.
Glucosatrin is a dietary supplement designed to be used in coordination with Market Australia’s Isotonix OPC-3, Antioxidant, and Multivitamin formulas. Collagen synthesized on the absence of abscorbic acid is less stable because it is insuffiently hydroxylated. Ask your Market Australia representative for details.
