Glucosamine is a sugar-like substance produced by the body and found in many bodily tissues and structures, including in cartilage. Glucosamine plays an important role in the production and maintenance of cartilage which is the white, smooth, rubber-like padding that covers the ends of bones and prevents them from rubbing against each other as we move.
Chondroitin is a naturally occurring nutrient found in connective tissue and is one of the building blocks for cartilage. Chondroitin is often recommended along with glucosamine for supporting joint health. Chondroitin helps support joint lubrication and cushioning which aids joint flexibility.There are no major chondroitin food sources, so it must be obtained through supplementation.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a dietary source of sulfur found naturally in the body. Sulfur is a necessary component that works in conjunction with Glucosamine to provide the building blocks of collagen, an important component of healthy joints and connective tissue.
Healthy joints are only one key part of the musculoskeletal system, which is vital for mobility. Other major parts include bones and muscles. Vitamin D is an important nutrient that plays a key role in bone and muscle health. It helps support healthy bones by aiding calcium absorption in the body.It also provides support for muscle health by helping with muscle function.Research shows that inadequate intakes of vitamin D can lead to muscle weakness.
Unfortunately, too many Americans are not getting enough of vitamin D. The 2015 USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans Committee identified vitamin D as a “nutrient of public health concern,” 4 as 9 out of 10 Americans fail to meet their daily vitamin D needs.Supplementation is often recommended to help meet daily vitamin D needs and support overall wellness including bone and muscle health.
