Our joints have a fundamental value for quality of life and well-being. After all, it is joints that make it possible for us to move our limbs. More than 100 of these fascinating structures are found in our bodies - wherever two bones meet.
A very important component of joints is the cartilage layer, which is rich in collagen fibers. It lies protectively over the ends of the bones and thus prevents bone from "rubbing" against bone. Maintaining this articular cartilage and supplying it with the necessary nutrients: this is understandably extremely relevant in order to be able to move without pain in the long term. However, this is no longer possible for very many people.
Our joint capsules contain 8 ingredients that complement each other perfectly:
- Green-lipped mussel with 2% glycosaminglycans
- Devil's claw
- Willow bark extract with 15% salicin
- Magnesium-L-Ascorbate with 83% Vitamin C
- Collagen type II (UC®-II)
- Vitamin D3
Manganese, vitamin C and vitamin D contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.
Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation and cartilage function.
- Green Lipped Mussel
The green-lipped mussel (Pema canaliculus) is a type of mussel native mainly to New Zealand. It contains so-called glycosaminoglycans (long-chain amino sugar compounds). These are also found in human synovial fluid (synovial fluid), connective tissue and articular cartilage.
Green-lipped mussel also contains omega-3 fatty acids and other minerals and trace elements.
Glucosamine is naturally occurring amino sugar in the body. It is found in the human body primarily in connective tissue, cartilage and synovial fluid.
- Devil's claw
Devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) belongs to the sesame family and is native mainly to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. Especially in African countries, devil's claw has been used for many millennia for a wide variety of applications.
- Willow bark extract
Willow bark (Salicis cortex) has been used for various preparations since ancient times. It contains various phenols, such as the glucoside salicin, which is converted to salicylic acid in the digestive tract. Salicin forms the basis for acetylsalicylic acid (ASA, also known through aspirin). Our willow bark extract contains 15% salicin.
- Magnesium-L-Ascorbate (Vitamin C)
Magnesium-L-Ascorbate is a particularly stomach-friendly, well-tolerated and basic vitamin C compound. It is particularly suitable for users who cannot tolerate conventional vitamin C products (often containing ascorbic acid).
Vitamin C contributes to:
- to a normal function of the immune system during and after intensive physical exercise
- normal collagen formation for normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth
- normal energy metabolism
- to a normal function of the nervous system
- normal mental function
- to a normal function of the immune system
- to protect cells from oxidative stress
- to reduce fatigue and tiredness
- to contribute to the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
- to improve iron absorption
- Collagen type II (UC®-II)
Collagen makes up the largest percentage of human protein content, 30%. It ensures the maintenance of normal movement, elasticity and strength of connective tissue, bones and also cartilage.
UC-II is a special type II collagen naturally produced from chicken breast bone. This form of collagen is especially valuable because it is not denatured, which means, simply put, it is still in its natural form. Type II collagen is also a major component of human cartilage and ensures its strength, among other things.
Manganese is an essential trace element and is responsible for the activation of many enzymes in the body. Manganese also contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and the formation of normal connective tissue.
- Vitamin D3
Researched for decades, vitamin D is known for its versatile and amazing effects on almost all areas of the human body. Vitamin D (calciferol) is also known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it can be largely produced by the body with the help of sunlight.
There are two different forms of vitamin D: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D2 is the form that occurs mainly in plants, while vitamin D3 occurs mainly in non-plant organisms. Thus, the vitamin D3 form is also present in humans, and it also appears to be significantly more effective and easier for the body to absorb.
Studies based on vitamin D produced from lanolin (wool wax) have shown that:
- Vitamin D contributes to normal immune system function
- Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth and bones
- Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function
- Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption and utilization of calcium, phosphorus and normal calcium levels in the blood
