What Nutrients Support Joint and Cartilage Health?
Quantum Joint and Cartilage is a plant-based formula to help ease occasional, minor pain that is associated with normal day-to-day wear and tear of joints.* You can now support the overall health of your joint and cartilage tissue with this top-tier formula featuring Andrographis paniculata, white willow extract, and sodium hyaluronate.*
Andrographis – the “King of Bitters”
The first key ingredient in our formula, Andrographis paniculata, is a powerful plant with a long history of use by traditional practitioners in China with a wide range of uses in promoting health.* It is called the “King of Bitters” with a specific ability to help support musculoskeletal tissues, including joints.* Andrographis contains phytochemicals called andrographolides (active compounds in andrographis) which have been studied for their potential to support circulatory and joint health.* As a botanical adaptogen, andrographis helps promote an adaptive response to common daily stresses, including environmental stressors.*
Hyaluronic Acid – The Joint Lubricator*
Next up is hyaluronic acid which is one of the chief components of the body’s connective tissue. Interestingly, it forms a protective gelatinous matrix that surrounds the cells in joints. Hyaluronic acid is also a chief component of synovial fluid, the fluid that is contained inside our synovial joints (such as our shoulders or knees) where it acts as a lubricating agent for joints. Since hyaluronic acid is also part of the cartilage in our joints, it coats the cells within the joint with its gel-like matrix. The average person has about 15 grams of hyaluronic acid in their body at any one time. About one third of this is degraded and used up daily.
We use sodium hyaluronate, a stabilized form of hyaluronic acid, as a key component in our joint formula. Since it has a smaller molecular weight than hyaluronic acid, it is more stable and less prone to oxidation, making it the preferred form for use in our formula. Some studies have shown that sodium hyaluronate when taken orally may benefit minor joint pain and joint health.*
Willow Bark – Minor Pain Relieving Effects*
The third key ingredient in our formula is willow bark extract. It has been used for thousands of years for its targeted effects in relieving minor pain in joints, such as knees, hips and other joints, due to daily wear and tear.* Because of its famous benefits, willow bark extracts are widely used in sports performance today. Its main ingredient is salicin‚ which is a natural phytochemical that is associated with minor pain-relieving effects.* It also contains other ingredients such as polyphenol and flavonoids which may also play prominent roles in therapeutic benefits.*
Please enjoy this stellar trio that supports healthy cartilage, joint health, and flexibility so that you can move through your day elegantly and with ease.*
