Flexibility and optimum function of our joints and ligaments depends on cells that produce a multi-compound extracellular material responsible for strength and provides lubrication to the movement of bones and muscles. Among its many components, collagen and a variety of glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans are critical for healthy function of joints.
The healthy function of cells building our joints largely depends on a continuous availability of specific vitamins, minerals and a variety of other nutritional components.
The Dr. Rath Healthy Joints Synergy Formula is built on our pioneering research which identified a ‘team’ of specific micronutrients acting in synergy for a maximum effect and providing optimum bio-energy for producing healthy collagen, cartilage and supporting the function of cells building our cartilage, ligaments and joints.*
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, Lysine, Proline, Cysteine, Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine, Collagen extract, Quercetin, Copper, Bromelain, Curcumin, Hesperidin, Naringin, and many others.
Vitamin C, Lysine and Proline: These nutrients act synergistically to support the production of collagen and other components of connective tissue forming our joints and ligaments.
Hydrolyzed Collagen: Together with vitamin C, this ingredient's amino acids, glycine and proline, stimulate production of cartilage and build healthy connective tissue for strong joints.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine: Optimum availability of glucosamine is critical for the production of glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans. These molecules help build strong cartilage. Glucosamine also helps in formation of synovial fluid (‘joint lubricant’).
Chondroitin Sulfate: Combines with proteins to form glycoproteins and is important in maintaining strength and optimum structure of cartilage. It also helps with the production of lubricating fluid in joints.
Bromelain: Bromelain is an enzyme complex obtained from pineapple which helps in better absorption of quercetin.
Naringin and Hesperidin: These are citrus fruit bioflavonoids that work together with vitamin C as antioxidants and support the formation of strong collagen and connective tissue.
Green Tea Extract: The important component of green tea extract, EGCG, helps maintain healthy joint cartilage. The effectiveness of EGCG increases in synergy with quercetin.
Copper: Has antioxidant properties. As a cofactor in collagen synthesis, copper is essential for formation of connective tissue in joints, thereby increasing healthy function of joints.
Quercetin: Quercetin acts synergistically with green tea extract to support joints.
