One of the biggest challenges with most joint supplements on the market is that their large size makes them difficult for many to swallow. Our liquid formulation means that the problem is no longer an obstacle. You’ll also get superior absorption. Vitabase Liquid Glucosamine is a leader in the health supplement industry when it comes to potency, convenience, and price.
Instead of buying three separate products, you can get the most popular arthritis and joint pain natural supplements in one formula with outstanding potency. Each one-ounce serving provides you with an incredible 1,600 mg of glucosamine, 1,200 mg of chondroitin, and 1,000 mg of OptiMSM™-brand MSM. Compare this offering to many standard supplements that typically contain about 500 mg or less of each supplement.
After you have taken liquid glucosamine and experienced relief for several months, you may want to cut back to a maintenance dose, which may be as little as half the original dose. We recommend you take the full dosage to begin with but break it up into two or three smaller doses.
You have no doubt heard talk about the benefits many have experienced from the nutritional supplements glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. What is it about these ingredients that make them so special?
Glucosamine, a substance found naturally in the joints, stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage that has degenerated over time. The subject of many clinical studies over the past 20 years, glucosamine has proven effective at reducing joint pain. In one Portuguese study involving sufferers of osteoarthritis, 95 percent of participants experienced at least some benefit when taking 1,500 mg of glucosamine per day. Another recent study seems to indicate that glucosamine slows the deterioration of cartilage and relieves pain. More research is necessary to confirm specific health benefits. Glucosamine is considered safe with no adverse side effects.
Chondroitin is a major component of cartilage. Found naturally in the body, it works to protect the cartilage by blocking enzymes that seek to break down cartilage and by absorbing excess fluid in the connecting tissue. It also assists in cartilage repair. Many studies done on chondroitin supplements indicate that chondroitin supplements may effectively reduce swelling and stiffness in the joints and may provide relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Numerous other studies are currently underway.
MSM is included in the formulation because of its ability to reduce pain. MSM is a biologically available (organic) form of sulfur. Sulfur is one of the major components of food and one of the most prevalent materials in the body. While this supplement is taken for many purposes, including allergies and skin problems, one of its most common uses is for joint and muscle pain. In studies, it has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Since some MSM is found in the food we eat, there are no side effects or major health concerns.
