The Vita Joint Formula
Glucosamine HCL and Chondroitin Sulfate with Vitamin C.
Each capsule contains a blend of nutrients
that have been shown to help the body repair cartilage in joints damaged
by osteo arthritis and other types of physical damage.
Glucosamine HCL &
Joint Repair Supplement
Glucosamine HCL and
Chondroitin Sulfate have been shown in studies to be supportive agents
for the maintenance of healthy joint and cartilage tissue. As a person
ages, the cartilage which cushions the joints often loses its ability to
support healthy cellular growth. In addition, the synovial fluid which
lubricates these joints also deteriorates. This condition, called osteoarthritis,
often leads to rough bones which rub together and cause distress with every
twist or bend.
Over time, the only option
you have is to use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These
preparations may cause side effects like slowing down the body's rate of
cartilage replacement and actually destroying cartilage. Other side effects
include: gastrointestinal tract damage, hemorrhaging, tinnitus (ringing
in the ears), edema (fluid retention) and sometimes kidney and liver damage.
Although scientific studies
were conducted with glucosamine sulfate, the hydrochloride (hcl) form is
known to be even better assimilated by the body. Glucosamine hydrochloride
demonstrates more stability, purity, and higher concentration when compared
to glucosamine sulfate.
What does it do? Glucosamine
HCL provides the joints with the building blocks they need to repair damage
caused by osteoarthritis or injuries. Specifically, glucosamine hcl provides
the raw material needed by the body to manufacture a mucopolysaccharide
(called glycosaminoglycan) found in cartilage. Glucosamine hcl may also
play a role in wound healing.
Glucosamine stimulates the
body's manufacture of collagen, the protein portion of the fibrous substance
that holds joints together. Collagen is also the main component of the
shock-absorbing cushion called articular cartilage-the white smooth surface
which covers the ends of body joints-such as those in the wrist, fingers,
toes, ankles, knees, hips and between the discs of the spine.
Glucosamine HCL is used extensively
to treat & partially reverse osteoarthritis. It provides the
raw material needed for chondrocytes to regenerate cartilage & actually
help rebuild joints. Now being used by thousands, if not millions, secondary
to study results & wide publicity.
Glucosamine HCL has been used in connection
with the following conditions:
Minor injuries and wound healing
In studies it produced:
Major reductions in joint pain, tenderness, &
Improvements in joint function & overall
Takes 4-6 weeks of use to produce noticeable
What does it do? Chondroitin
sulfate consists of repeating chains of molecules called mucopolysaccharides.
Chondroitin sulfate is a major constituent of cartilage, providing structure,
holding water and nutrients, and allowing other molecules to move through
cartilage-an important property, as there is no blood supply to cartilage.
Chondroitin sulfate also appears to help restore joint function in people
with osteoarthritis, a finding confirmed in double
Chondroitin and similar compounds
are present in the lining of blood vessels and the urinary bladder. They
help prevent abnormal movement of blood, urine, or components across the
barrier of the vessel or bladder wall. Part of chondroitin's role in blood
vessels is to prevent excessive blood clotting remains unclear. However,
whether supplements of chondroitin are able to favorably affect blood clotting.
In addition, chondroitin sulfate may lower blood cholesterol levels.
Older preliminary research showed that chondroitin sulfate may prevent
atherosclerosis in animals and humans and may also prevent heart attacks
in people who already have atherosclerosis.
Chondroitin sulfate can help
form a coating on nasal passages. Perhaps as a result, researchers found
that when chondroitin sulfate was sprayed onto nasal passages in a small
group of snorers, the amount of time people spent snoring was reduced about
one third in a double blind trial. No further studies
have investigated the effects of oral chondroitin sulfate on snoring.
Chondroitin sulfate is classified
as a type of glycosaminoglycan; it is rich in sulfur and is related to
glucosamine. Glycosaminoglycans affect how the body processes oxalate-a
substance linked to kidney stones. In one study of forty people with a
history of kidney stones, 30 mg twice a day of mixed glycosaminoglycans
reduced urinary oxalate excretion in fifteen days-a change that could drop
the risk of stone formation. However, while experts
believe that glycosaminoglycans effectively prevent formation of kidney
stones in test tube studies, effects in humans have been inconsistent.
Where is it found? The only
significant food source of chondroitin sulfate is animal cartilage.
Chondroitin sulfate has
been used in connection with the following conditions:
Also known as: Ascorbic acid
Dietary antioxidants, especially
vitamin C, have been proven to limit joint pain and damage, as well.
What does it do? Vitamin
C is a water-soluble vitamin that functions as a powerful antioxidant.
Acting as an antioxidant, one of vitamin C's important functions is to
protect LDL cholesterol from oxidative damage.
Vitamin C is needed to make
collagen, the "glue" that strengthens many parts of the body, such as muscles
and blood vessels. Vitamin C also plays important roles in wound healing
and as a natural antihistamine. This vitamin also aids in the formation
of liver bile and helps to fight viruses and to detoxify alcohol and other
Where is it found? Broccoli,
red peppers, currants, Brussels sprouts, parsley, rose hips, acerola berries,
citrus fruit, and strawberries are good sources of vitamin C.
Vitamin C has been used in connection with
the following conditions:
|Athletic performance (for deficiency only)
Bruising (for deficiency only)
Common cold/sore throat
Gingivitis (periodontal disease) (for deficiency
|High cholesterol (protection of LDL cholesterol)
Infertility (male) (for sperm agglutination)
Injuries (minor) (oral and topical, for sunburn
|Athletic performance (for exercise recovery)
Iron deficiency anemia (as an adjunct to supplemental
Other Alcohol withdrawal support
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Ear infections (recurrent)
High blood pressure
Menorrhagia (heavy menstruation)
Urinary tract infection
Who is likely to be deficient?
Although scurvy (severe vitamin C deficiency) is uncommon in Western societies,
many nutritionally oriented doctors believe that most people consume less
than optimal amounts. Fatigue, easy bruising, and bleeding gums are early
signs of vitamin C deficiency that occur long before frank scurvy develops.
Smokers have low levels of vitamin C and require a higher daily intake
to maintain normal vitamin C levels.
Great for dogs and cats, too
