An estimated 21 million Americans live with osteoarthritis – the ‘wear and tear’ form of arthritis. Despite the longevity and frequency of the disease, the cause is still not completely known and there is no cure. In fact, many different factors may play a role in whether or not you get osteoarthritis, including age, obesity, injury or overuse, and genetics. Management of the symptoms and controlling the progression of osteoarthritis are critical to long term mobility. Proper diet, appropriate physical activity, weight management, and supplementation are all methods that support achieving this control. Dr. Joints® is an effective joint health supplement formulated with ingredients proven to reduce pain and inflammation, increase mobility, and help maintain healthy cartilage.* Don’t let sore joints keep you from enjoying the activities you love. Stay active, stay healthy with Dr. Joints®.
Glucosamine Sulfate: (pain relief and functionality properties) Proven in more than 300 studies and 20 clinical trials to actually build joint cartilage, Glucosamine sulfate significantly improves the symptoms of pain and functionality in those who suffer from arthritis, and may help to slow the degeneration process. It has also been found to somewhat reduce the breakdown of cartilage that can be caused by anti-inflammatory medications, which ironically are often prescribed for those with arthritis. When combined with Chondroitin sulfate, Glucosamine can have an even greater effect on osteoarthritis and overall joint pain relief.
Cetyl-Myristoleate: (lubricant and anti-inflammatory properties) Cetyl Myristoleate is a fatty acid reported to function in four ways: as a lubricant, as a facilitator in building cartilage, as an immune system modulator, and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Studies show its ability to reduce the incidence of arthritis, and improve function/mobility in those who suffer from arthritis pain.
Chondroitin: (slows degeneration process) Chondroitin studies have demonstrated its efficacy in controlling pain and improving functionality in those with osteoarthritis, particularly of the knee and hip. Additional evidence shows that chondroitin might slow progression of osteoarthritis by modestly reducing joint-space narrowing.
