Thorne Research AR-Encap Details
AR-Encap is a comprehensive joint support formula that goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation. This formula supplies 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate (suggested use – 4 capsules twice daily), which is the amount used in the majority of studies – in combination with joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.
In a study of healthy subjects with mild knee soreness, bromelain supplementation resulted in significant improvement with both 200-mg and 400-mg daily doses. Joint mobility was also improved.
Curcumin, the principal polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric, exerts antioxidant effects. Curcumin Phytosome is a compound containing curcumin and phosphatidylcholine. This compound has significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps maintain a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body.
Glucosamine provides significant joint support, as evidenced by numerous clinical studies. Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM), also known as dimethyl sulfone and methyl sulfone, is an organic, sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of plants, and provides additional joint support.
Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body. A study of curcumin and boswellia found significant support of normal joint mobility in the group taking the botanical formula.
