 Cytosport’s Joint Matrix

Description

Cytosport's Joint Matrix delivers an exclusive triple glucosamine formula plus chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, curcumin, willow bark extract, bromelain, borage oil, marine lipids, acetyl cysteine (NAC), licorice root and vitamins and minerals.

This potent, natural blend of chondro-protective nutrients not only improves joint and cartilage health, but also helps relieve inflammation, pain and stiffness and improve flexibility. Furthermore, independent studies suggests that these powerful joint supporting nutrients may help relieve the symptoms of arthritis.

Joint Matrix contains three types of glucosamine salts including glucosamine sulfate, N acetyl glucosamine and glucosamine HCL. Glucosamine and chondroitin are essential nutrients for the production, maintenance, and repair of cartilage. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a key component of synovial fluid lubricating the joints. Research suggests that glucosamine, chondroitin and HA can help improve joint lubrication, relieve joint pain, and treat arthritis.

Willow bark extract, bromelain, borage oil, curcumin, licorice, NAC and marine lipids (fish oils) are natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients that can help treat and prevent arthritis by reducing inflammation and improving joint function. The botanical willow bark contains the constituent salicylic acid, which can help relieve pain and arthritis symptoms. Willow bark was the model for the development of aspirin.
