Glucosamine MSM Herbal™
Promotes Healthy Joint Function
Glucosamine MSM Herbal™
Supports Joint Flexibility
As we grow older, the stress of repeated activity can result in decreased flexibility and joint discomfort, limiting our ability to move in the world. But a healthy lifestyle, including the use of specific nutrients and herbs, can make a big difference in promoting flexible joints.
Glucosamine MSM Herbal combines leading joint support nutrients, in clinically substantiated potencies, with traditional herbs used around the world to support bone and joint function. The formula combines glucosamine, a building block of joints, with dietary sulfur (MSM), which is necessary for healthy connective tissue, and classic Ayurvedic, Chinese and Native American botanicals.
Together, these nutrients and herbs soothe and lubricate joints, ease movement, and promote joint, tendon and ligament flexibility. Glucosamine MSM Herbal exemplifies Planetary Herbals’ commitment to herbalism at its best—uniting traditional herbal wisdom with the findings of modern clinical and pharmacological research.
Glucosamine MSM Herbal contains several important building blocks of joints and connective tissue. Taken as recommended, it provides 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate and 2,250 mg of MSM (dietary sulfur)—the amounts shown in research to support healthy joint function.
Glucosamine MSM Herbal also features traditional herbs including boswellia, eucommia bark, teasel root and wild yam—which are little known in North America but highly valued by Ayurvedic and Chinese herbalists.
Glucosamine: Structural Support for Joints
Glucosamine is an essential structural component of glycosaminoglycans, the building blocks that can help retain water, lubricate joints and support the strong, healthy structure of your skin and joints. Glucosamine sulfate is well-absorbed and provides an additional source of sulfur. Numerous double-blind, placebo controlled studies have examined the positive effects of glucosamine sulfate in amounts comparable to this formula.
Dietary Sulfur for Joint Lubrication
MSM is an important source of dietary sulfur, a mineral that is vital to all tissues and needed constantly in an assimilable form. Sulfur may promote flexibility due to its role in supporting joint lubrication and movement. Unlike common products on the market, Glucosamine MSM Herbal also contains molybdenum, to ensure an adequate supply of this trace mineral. High amounts of dietary sulfur increase urinary molybdenum loss. Molybdenum is necessary for the functioning of an enzyme that supports proper metabolism of glucosamine sulfate and MSM.
Traditional Herbal Blend
Planetary Herbals has traveled around the world to search out botanicals traditionally used to support bones and joints. Boswellia, an important Ayurvedic herb, and wild yam, which is esteemed by Native American herbalists, have been valued for their soothing properties. The traditional Chinese herb, teasel root, is a primary botanical used to support the skeletal system, and eucommia bark is a classic Chinese back tonic.
