The ingredients in Blackmores Joint Formula Advanced - glucosamine, chondroitin, manganese and boron - are research based and have been selected for overall joint health.
As we age, the ‘wear and tear’ effects of many years of using our joints can become apparent. This may cause degenerative changes in the cartilage. Glucosamine and sulfate are natural components of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of the substances that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine sulfate as glucosamine sulfate sodium chloride complex supports healthy cartilage, joint mobility and comfort.
Research has shown that 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate as sodium chloride complex supports joint comfort and functionality. Glucosamine sulfate may also have a long-term protective effect.
Chondroitin, like glucosamine, is a natural component of cartilage. Chondroitin is also involved in the lubrication and nutrition of the joint, and helps the joints to resist compression.
Manganese and boron are minerals which appear to play roles in joint health. Manganese is essential for the production of cartilage and bone. Boron plays a role in the chemical make-up of bones and joints.
