HPF's 1st Step Liquid Joint Support - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

HPF’s 1st Step Liquid Joint Support features the first water-based liquid form glucosamine and chondroitin. This new formula works with the immune system to deliver glucosamine and chondroitin’s documented benefits to joints and cartilage. Research suggests that 1st Step’s all-natural, joint support nutrients not only improve joint health, but also help relieve pain and stiffness and promote mobility.

Glucosamine and chondroitin are two leading nutrients essential for the production, maintenance, and repair of cartilage. Glucosamine and chondroitin are an important part of a biomolecular group called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are found in cartilage, where they bind to water to produce a gel-like extracellular matrix. This helps cushion and lubricate joints.

Studies suggest that glucosamine may be as effective as the OTC anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen in improving arthritis symptoms. In one study, published in Current Medical Research and Opinion, researchers gave arthritis patients glucosamine sulfate or ibuprofen daily for eight weeks. They found that pain symptoms and mobility improved faster in the ibuprofen group during the first two weeks. However, the glucosamine group demonstrated a greater improvement in arthritis symptoms by the eight week.

Ever since I could remember my joints would bug me. I was overweight but when I lost the weight I still had the problem. I talked to my doctor and I was told to take a supplement specifically beneficial for the joints. I found this product and I have become very fond of it.
