Clinicians Mega Joint Ease 90 Capsules
The joints play a very important role in our mobility. When our joints are damaged, we experience pain which often causes us to stop our usual daily activities. Because of the fear that any movement or activity will aggravate the pain we forego our active lifestyle. Therefore, joint pain results in a sedentary lifestyle. In order to support joint health, we can take a supplement that is made with glucosamine and chondroitin. These nutrients are naturally produced by the body but are depleted as we age. Clinicians Mega Joint Ease Capsules are made with naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin. In combination, these two nutrients support the structure as well as the proper function of tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage and synovial fluid. All these parts are essential in fluid mobility of any person.

Glucosamine is naturally formed by the body as glucosamine-6-phosphate. It is formed with the mix of amino acid glutamine and the sugar glucose. A building block for cell membranes, it holds the cells together and are found primarily in cartilage. Cartilage is what serves as the cushion at the end of bones. Directly or indirectly glucosamine plays a role in the formulation of articular surfaces, tendons, ligaments and synovial fluid. Whilst Chondroitin supports proteoglycan production -- the special protein molecules contained within joint cartilage. This provides flexibility and resistance to compression. Therefore, making it a vital component to help support the structure and functional integrity of the joints.
Poor joint mobility and stiffness is thought to affect 12 percent of the population. And this condition mostly affect the following areas of the body: in the knees, hips, fingers, and wrists. And primarily caused by wear and tear on the cartilage. This joint wear could be a result of trauma (injury or overuse), dietary practises, or age-related breakdown and deformity (developmental or genetic). Although the cartilage is not well supplied with blood and lymph vessels and nerve fibers, it does have the ability to repair and replenish itself if vital nutrients are made available through diet and supplementation.
