Glucosamine is a key structural component in cartilage tissue, which is important for the mobility and durability of the joints.
Cartilage is formed by glucosaminoglucans and proteoglucans. If the body`s ability to produce these essential materials decreases, it might cause damage to joint cartilage and become painful. Through supplementation of glucosamine such damages can be eased: supplementation of glucosamine can actually increase the body’s own glucan production.
Vegetal-based glucosamine hydrochloride, used in Bodyflex Glucosamin Plus, is produced from maize originated glucose by using fermentation, without organic solvents. Maize is carefully removed from the product; however, the product is still not recommend for people with a maize allergy.
Chondroitin sulfate is a component of human connective tissues found in cartilage and bone. It helps to reduce pain and inflammation, improves joint function and slows the progression of osteoarthritis (OA).
MSM (methylsulphonylmethane) is an organic water-soluble sulphur compound found naturally from the human body, especially in joints, muscles, skin, nails and hair. In food, MSM is found in many sources, but it’s largely lost during food processing, storage and cooking. This makes it difficult to obtain substantial amounts of MSM from dietary sources. MSM is one of the major building blocks of glycosaminoglycans and it helps maintain the structure of connective tissue by forming cross-linkages through disulfide bonds; sulphur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint which make it also critical to good joint health.
Bodyflex Glucosamin Plus food supplement supports an active lifestyle and is suitable especially for older people and for persons, whose joints are exposed to stress.
