The formula features glucosamine sulfate, a critical precursor of synovial fluid and a necessary nutrient for rebuilding cartilage and improving joint function.

MSM, a compound found naturally occurring in fresh foods, is a nutritionally rich source of bioavailable sulfur that is readily incorporated into the major sulfur-containing amino acids, methionine and cysteine. MSM has been found to be vital to the proper functioning of muscles and joints. Diets of processed food contain little MSM, thus exogenous replacement is the best way to obtain this vital nutrient. Clinical studies using MSM have demonstrated significant improvement in flexibility and comfort in movement. MSM is more readily utilized when taken in combination with vitamin C..
Sea Cucumber is a salt water invertebrate echinoderm that is naturally very rich in mucopolysaccharides, including chondroitin sulfate. Polysulfated glycosaminoglycans such as chondroitin sulfate have a chondroprotective and beneficial effect on the articular cartilage.
