Nutra-Life Joint Formula is a powerful combination of natural, scientifically-researched joint pain relief ingredients. Glucosamine sulfate is the Glucosamine form that has been scientifically shown to help temporarily relieve arthritic joint pain, plus Chondroitin and other important joint health support ingredients include Copper, Boron, Manganese and Zinc to help maintain joint health and mobility, especially during the ageing process when levels of these nutrients can decline and result in joint problems.
If you’re dealing with arthritis symptoms, they’re probably affecting more than just your joints. After all, if your joints are constantly sore and stiff, the things you used to enjoy doing become far less fun. Joint pain usually happens when your joint cartilage (which should cushion and protect the ends of your bones) becomes thin and damaged. This can happen either through injury, or daily wear and tear.
Joint Formula is recommended for:
- Helping to manage osteoarthritis and relieve osteoarthritis symptoms
- Reducing arthritic joint pain and inflammation
- Helping to improve arthritic joint mobility and reduce stiffness
- Assisting with rebuilding damaged joint cartilage
- Supporting your body’s natural cartilage repair processes
Glucosamine Sulfate - Your body produces glucosamine naturally from nutrients it takes in from your diet. It uses this glucosamine as a building block to help repair damaged cartilage. However, as you get older, or if you are injured, your body produces less natural glucosamine. Glucosamine is a source of specific protein-carbohydrate compounds that help to nourish the cartilage tissues in your joints. Glucosamine sulfate is glucosamine that is bound to Sulfur to keep it stable. Glucosamine sulfate is derived from shrimp, prawn or crab shells. Glucosamine sulfate supplements have been scientifically shown to help relieve joint pain. They can also help to ease joint swelling and inflammation, and may reduce joint stiffness.
Chondroitin Sulfate - Chondroitin is another natural substance that your body uses as a building block for joint cartilage repair. The Chondroitin sulfate in Wagner Joint Formula comes from bovine (cow) cartilage. That means it contains all the compounds your body needs to rebuild your joint cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate acts much like sponge to draw water into your joint cartilage. This increases the cartilage’s ability to cushion your bones. Chondroitin also plays a role in blocking the enzymes that cause cartilage breakdown .
Zinc - Zinc is an essential mineral that your body uses as a component in more than 300 different natural enzymes. These enzymes affect everything from immunity to fertility to vision to skin healing and vision. Your body uses Zinc to produce important proteins (e.g. elastin and collagen) that play key roles in cartilage renewal and repair. Zinc is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect joint cartilage cells against free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable, highly reactive molecules that your body produces in response to inflammation. Your white blood cells need Zinc to function normally and produce the right kinds of antibodies. This makes Zinc important for a healthy immune system.
Manganese - Manganese is an essential trace mineral that your body uses in several of its enzyme systems. It is a key building block that your body uses to form enzymes called glycosyltransferases. These enzymes then help your body to create proteoglycans – compounds that help to form healthy cartilage and bones. Your body also uses Manganese to create the powerful antioxidant enzyme Superoxide dismutase. This enzyme helps to protect your joint cartilage against damage from superoxide, a kind of free radical.
Boron - Boron is a trace mineral that plays a role in many of your body’s metabolic processes. Low Boron levels can contribute to inflammation and joint swelling. Your body also needs Boron to absorb and use Calcium properly. This means it plays a role in bone mineralisation, which makes it important for strong, healthy bones.
Copper - Copper is another trace mineral that acts as a antioxidant to help protect joint cells from free radical damage. Your also uses Copper to form collagen and elastin – proteins that give joint cartilage its structure and elasticity. Copper has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. It can also help your body with Iron absorption. This makes it important for healthy red blood cells and haemoglobin levels.
