Ease of movement, lack of swelling and flexibility are all signs of healthy joints. Joint Guardian is formulated to support joint health with a mixture of compounds such glucosamine and chondroitin. They and other ingredients promote strong bone joints in order for user to enjoy daily activities from exercise to hobbies to gardening.∗
The glucosamine sulfate in this joint health supplement is absorbed by the body and converted to glucosamine. Glucosamine plays an important role in the production and maintenance of cartilage.∗ The body uses glucosamine to make special molecules called glycosaminoglycans, which are found in the cartilage an important component of bone joints. That smooth tissue, which is both rubbery and tough, lines and cushions the surface in a healthy joint. The amount and condition of cartilage is directly related to the proper functioning of each bone joint.
The glucosamine sulfate like that found in this joint health supplement is also a normal constituent of synovial fluid. That stringy, thick fluid acts like a lubricant between bone joints.∗ At rest, the fluid is more like a thick paste. When a person begins moving, it becomes more like a fluid that protects joint health during periods of strenuous activity.
Sufficient coverage of bone joints with cartilage is essential to joint health, and to ease and range of movement with no pain. With age, the amount of glucosamine created by the body decreases and the synovial fluid found in joint spaces become thinner and more watery. This causes the cartilage and the bones to scrape against each other, increasing the friction in bone joints. Almost none of this related to a natural diet of glucosamine and chondroitin. The degradation of bone joints can lead to a loss of range of movement, discomfort and increased difficulty in physical activities such as walking. This breakdown in cartilage can lead to arthritisjoint problems, which affects the joint health.
Pain relievers, including prescription drugs, are often used to treat arthriticjoint-related discomfort. But the authors of clinical studies report that the glucosamine and chondroitin like that in this joint health supplement can help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritispromote joint comfort. (1)∗ This is a type of arthritis Joint problems are caused byJoint health is affected by continuous wear and tear on the bone joints, leading to inflammation, breakdown, and eventual loss of cartilage. The tissues most affected by osteoarthritis are the weight-bearing joints, such as the knees and hips, as well as the joints in the hands. The study found that among those individuals with moderate to severe paindiscomfort, those taking a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin reported significant pain relief.∗
A six-month study of individuals with moderately severe osteoarthritis symptomsfound, those taking glucosamine sulfate like that in this joint health supplement reported greater relief from knee symptoms discomfort than those taking a placebo (sugar pill). (2)∗ And a separate study of people who had taken glucosamine sulfate for at least 12 months and up to three years had significantly better joint healthhalf the number of total joint replacements as those in the same studies that had taken a placebo.

In one study, glucosamine acted more slowly than ibuprofen in reducing pain discomfort in bone joints but provided longer-term relief. (4) And another study found that the two were equallyglucosamine effective in treating paindiscomfort. (5)∗ For joint health, only the highest quality, most active and readily absorbed form of glucosamine is in this joint health supplement. Each daily dosage contains 1,500 mg of Glucosamine.
The Chondroitin in this joint health supplement comes from natural sources — shark cartilage. Chondroitin helps to maintain bone-joint function by absorbing fluid into the connective tissue. As a building block for soft tissue such as cartilage, this compound is essential to joint health.∗
A study of patients with knee osteoarthritis discomfort found that those taking 1,200 mg daily of chondroitin sulfate were more likely to report improvement in symptoms, including joint mobility, than those who took the placebo. (6)∗
Chondroitin cannot be found in foods, so the only source is joint health supplements. Each daily dosage contains 1,200 mg of chondroitin sulfate.
