 NOW’s Glucosamine & Chondroitin Plus MSM

Description

NOW's Glucosamine & Chondroitin Plus MSM combines three studied nutrients for joint health in one supplement. It contains glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane). Research suggests that glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM support healthy joint structure and function.

Glucosamine & Chondroitin Plus MSM features the Lingnusil brand MSM, an organic form of sulfur found in all living organisms. MSM is a natural anti-inflammatory nutrient and source of biologically active sulfur found in cartilage. MSM helps maintain elasticity of connective tissue. Glucosamine and chondroitin are made up of gylcosaminoglycans (GAGs), specialized molecules found in cartilage that cushion, repair and lubricate the joints.

A 2004 double-blind, placebo controlled trial published in Clinical Drug Investigation found that glucosamine and MSM are more effective than either nutrient alone in providing joint pain and inflammation relief and joint function improvement. "It can be concluded that the combination of MSM with glucosamine provides better and more rapid improvement in patients with osteoarthritis," the researchers wrote.
