NOW Foods Joint Support Powder - an excellent preparation affecting the rate of joint and movement system regeneration. Each serving provides a solid dose of hydrolyzed collagen (with rapid bioavailability), glucosamine sulphate and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). It is recommended mainly for physically active people, but also for obese people, whose joints are subjected to overloads.
Collagen - Is the main building block of our body. Collagen proteins are about 30% of all proteins found in our body. They form the foundation not only of the skin, hair and nails, but also of bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and lymphatic vessels.
MSM - In the human body about half of the total sulfur pool is part of muscles, skin and bones. Sulfur in organic form is used for the production of essential enzymes, antibodies, glutathione and connective tissue proteins. Sulfur-containing amino acids form keratin, collagen and elastin molecules that provide flexibility and durability: to the muscles, bones, joints, skin, hair and nails.
Glucosamine - is a substance belonging to the so-called aminosugars, which abundantly occurs in the matrix of articular cartilage and is a natural component of the so-called synovial fluid. Is a compound necessary to maintain the proper structure and elasticity of the godfather, which increases its resistance to overloading. It facilitates the incorporation of sulfur atoms into the cartilage structure and retains water in connective tissues. Glucosamine contributes to the maintenance of normal joints by activating chondrocytes - cartilage cells.
1 serving (10.5g) once a day.
