Keep your joints healthy with two proven ingredients
They’re hallmark signs of being over the hill—a little bit of stiffness when you get out of bed in the morning… difficulty opening that jar of jam…
But before you start reaching for a bottle of ibuprofen more often than you’re reaching for your spouse, you can put this worry to bed and start giving your joints the support they need.
Big Pharma will tell you that a few aches and pains are just part of life over 50. Baloney. I don’t care whether you’re 50 or 85… the science is the same. When you give your joints the proper nutrients and antioxidants, they have the ability to maintain themselves, giving you the kind of strength, mobility, and range of motion of you’ve always enjoyed.
The key is in maintaining the health of your cartilage. Cartilage covers the ends of your bones and acts as a cushion, which allows your joints to move freely. Over time, the cartilage can begin to wear away, and in some cases you may be left with bone rubbing against bone. Before you know it, you can’t even toss a football with your grandson without worrying about how your joints will feel the next day.
Of course, your average doctor will tell you there’s no way you can prevent this from happening. But keeping your joints healthy has nothing to do with pain pills, cortisone injections, or surgery. The key is keeping them nourished from the start.
Scientifically proven to keep your joints healthy and strong
Picture with me what happens to a sponge when it dries out… It becomes cracked, stiff, and brittle. That’s exactly what could happen to your cartilage if you don’t do something about it now.
Healthy cartilage is loaded with water, keeping it supple and flexible. But as you get older, your joints lose the ability to hold water. So drinking loads of H2O won’t do you a darn bit of good. What your body needs is an infusion of sulfur, which works to attract water into your joints. That’s why so many of today’s joint health formulas include MSM.
MSM (technically called methyl sulfonyl methane) is a source of sulfate that your body converts into sulfur. This water magnet is crucial to the regeneration of cells—especially cartilage. The best part about MSM is that it promotes joint comfort by helping your body regenerate healthy new cells to replace the old, worn, and torn ones in your cartilage.
And, of course, you can’t talk about joint health without mentioning glucosamine. I know it’s old hat to some of you, but I’m always amazed by how many people are still in the dark about this joint-strengthening powerhouse.
Some of my readers have said they just don’t believe it can live up to the hype. But glucosamine’s superstar status isn’t hype. It’s backed by such sound science that you’d have to be crazy not to try it.
Three different studies—one published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, one in Menopause, and one in the Lancet—found that glucosamine supported healthy cartilage and caused the wear and tear to come to a screeching halt.
The only downside to glucosamine is that it can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to really kick in. But if you ask me, it’s worth the wait for effects that are real and long-lasting, and that accumulate over time.
If you decide you want to supplement with glucosamine (and I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to), just make sure that you purchase glucosamine sulfate—not glucosamine hydrochloride. The majority of the studies showing the beneficial effects have been done on the sulfate form.
There are plenty of reputable products on the market, so by all means, shop around. But if you want to take the guesswork out of researching and choosing which product is best, I recommend Ultimate Joint Support, from my line of supplements.
I’ve handpicked the highest quality ingredients that are proven to promote joint health. It contains both glucosamine and MSM, along with a few other joint supporting nutrients and antioxidants. To order, call (800)723-7318 (and use order code PAINRA), or go online to www.RealAdvantageNutrients.com.
And remember: Don’t expect it to kick in overnight. In fact, you might go through two or three bottles before you begin to notice a difference. But stick with it. I promise you’ll be glad you did.
