Glucosamine, MSM & Collagen in one product! Injuries and just normal wear & tear can cause your tendons and ligaments to fray and become inflamed. Organika's Ligamend contains active glucosamine in the HCL form plus added collagen to optimize your body's ability to repair damaged soft tissue. MSM is included because of it's potent anti-inflammatory effect.
A unique combination of Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane, and Collagen Type II for those suffering from joint pain and degeneration due to injury.
Glucosamine is a precursor molecule for the formation of cartilage, the connective tissue disk that acts as a cushion and eliminates friction in your joints. It also forms the hair, skin, nails, eyes, tendons, bones, ligaments and heart valves. As we age our ability to make glucosamine decreases and loss of glucosamine decreases the integrity of cartilage. In joints, that results in less support, cushioning and more friction, like wear-and-tear injury. Glucosamine also has anti-inflammatory properties, which help the joint to repair itself after injury.
Studies show that glucosamine supplementation improves joint function and decreases pain in individuals suffering from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine can decrease the destruction of cartilage that occurs when arthritis sufferers use unnatural anti-inflammatory products. Natural health practitioners also recommend glucosamine for joint injury, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, bursitis, tendonitis and skin problems.
MSM is a sulphur-containing compound that is used as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It is a derivative of DMSO and is safer to use because it does not accumulate as rapidly in the body and does not have an offensive odour. As a source of organic sulphur, MSM helps to build protein, connective tissue, hormones and enzymes. Its pain relieving activity is believed to be fourfold. Firstly it can reduce the transmission of pain signals along nerve fibers. Secondly it increases blood flow to an area. Thirdly it reduces muscle spasms. And lastly, MSM stops the release of inflammatory compounds. MSM can also help the body to detoxify by supporting the functioning of the liver. MSM can be helpful for those individuals who have inflammatory conditions like arthritis, lupus and interstitial cystitis, suffer from seasonal allergies, or have pain due to other health conditions.
Collagen Type II
There are four types of collagen in the body. Collagen type II is the primary component of cartilage, with types I and III also being present but to a lesser degree. Cartilage is the connective tissue disk that acts as a cushion and eliminates friction in your joints. As we age our ability to make collagen type II decreases and loss of collagen type II decreases the integrity of cartilage.
Wear-and-tear injuries occur in the joints and cause less support, less cushioning and more friction. Collagen type II also has anti-inflammatory properties, which help the joint to repair itself after injury. As a supplement collagen acts as a source of amino acids for use in making and repairing connective tissue all over the body.
Reducing Joint Pain Naturally
Most people over age 35 have at least some wear and tear in their joints, but that doesn't mean it should cramp your style.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It usually has a gradual onset and begins after the age of forty. The knees, hips, fingers and vertebrae are most susceptible. The joint deterioration is due to faulty or deficient repair of bone and cartilage in the joint. The standard North American diet is deficient in the minerals necessary for proper joint repair; therefore it is not surprising that osteoarthritis is a common concern. Osteoarthritis causes stiffness and joint pain on motion.
It is typically worse in the morning. Initially there is no inflammation or swelling of the joint. As the damage progresses the joint may become inflamed and deformed. Muscles around the joint can tense up, joint mobility may decrease and there may be a grating feeling on movement. The pain becomes constant and occurs even when at rest.
Drug Treatments Actually Worsen Arthritis
Conventional treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatories has been shown to worsen arthritis. Side effects of some drugs are gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach ulcers, heart attacks and liver problems. Some of these medications, especially the NSAID group can actually accelerate the degradation of joint tissue and can cause a loss of bone mass.
