Arthro Joint Complex ~ Previously Arthro-Mend with MSM
Arthro-Mend with MSM/Arthro Joint Complex is a popular choice for people who want to optimize joint mobility. Helps support and maintain healthy joints
Flexibility & Strength Support
When we age, sometimes our flexibility, strength and posture can diminish and our joints, muscles and ligaments suffer. This formula supports the maintenance of healthy joints, tendons, elasticity and cartilage. Humans were made to move, and over time, our bodies need a “revamp” to keep joints, ligaments, tendons and cartilage mobile and healthy. Our newly improved formula harnesses the power of nature to support the body’s important moving parts and improve overall health.

The problem of bone and joint disorders had become so prevalent that the
United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have proclaimed the years 2000 through 2010 as the “Bone and Joint Decade.”
Osteoarthritis affects an estimated 60 million people in this country. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) have been the drugs of choice for joint pain and inflammation. They are among the most widely used drugs on the market.
NSAID’s have known side effects such as stomach irritation, ulcers, gastrointestinal hemorrhaging, liver and kidney damage, and skin rashes. There is also concern over NSAID’s destruction of cartilage and belief that they may accelerate the arthritis process.

Glucosamine – Stimulates the formation of connective tissue that give cartilage its tensile strength. Is a precursor to hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, substances that give cartilage resilience.
Chondroitin Sulfate – A proteoglycan that is responsible for lubricating joint tissues giving them resilience and flexibility.
Phenylalanine – Aids chronic pain sufferers by preventing the destruction of endorphins and enkephalins, the body’s pain fighting hormones.
MSM - Arthritic patients taking MSM reported long lasting relief from pain and stiffness as well as reduced swelling and inflammation. MSM is necessary for collagen synthesis, increases blood circulation, and speeds healing. Dr. Stanley Jacobs, M.D., the author of The Miracle of MSM states that glucosamine sulfate works better with MSM.
Boswellin® (Boswellia serrata)- The therapeutic action of Boswellin ® includes:
• Reduction in joint swelling
• Increased mobility
• Steroid sparing action
• Amelioration of morning stiffness
• General improvement in quality of life
The boswellic acids in Boswellin® were found to have a unique
dual inhibitory action on two pro-inflammatory enzymes, 5-
lipoxygenase and HLE (Human Leucocyte Elastase). Recent studies
show that only the B-Boswellic acids are effective anti-inflammatory
components. HPLC analysis of Boswellin® shows it to consistently
have higher amounts of B-Boswellic acids than other Boswellia
