JOINT REPAIR™ Arthritis Support
- Protects cartilage from damage
- Stimulates new cartilage production
- Decreases Joint Inflammation
- Stimulates connective tissue repair
JOINT REPAIR™ is a unique herbal & nutritional formula that helps restore the proper nutritional balance to the joints, by decreasing inflammation and improving function. Recent scientific research demonstrates that both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis manifest a dysfunction in the maturation and repair of both of the major joint cartilage components: proteoglycans and collagen. Joint Repair is the only product on the market that supports all of the components of the joint.
JOINT REPAIRTM contains the a highly concentrated pharmaceutical grade Grape Seed Extract known as Leucoslect. It provides nutritional support for joint collagen, which comprises at least 50% of the joint tissue. Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complex (OPC) from grape seeds activates collagen production, repairs damaged collagen fibrils, protects healthy collagen from free radical damage and inhibits the joint destroying enzyme Collagenase.
OPCs can prevent free-radical damage to collagen and elastin, push back the clock, and reverse the effects of aging on your body.* JOINT REPAIRTM Grape Seed Extract is a super-antioxidant providing 50 times more antioxidant protection than Vitamin E and 20 times more protection than Vitamin C.
To a large extent, youthfulness is determined by the suppleness of your collagen and elastin. Your skin, blood vessels, joints and every membrane within your body are laced together with these connective tissue components.
During infancy, these connective tissues are extremely soft and pliable. Over time the collagen and elastin fibers gradually become cross-linked by free radical damage. As this happens, your joints and cartilage stiffen, lose their flexibility and become painful due to joint inflammation.
You can fight back. When taken orally, the Grape Seed Extract in JOINT REPAIRTM is rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and distributed to the connective tissue where it fights free radical damage, inhibits collagen destroying enzymes, promotes new collagen and elastin formation and slows or even reverses the biological process of aging.
Glucosamine Sulfate is a precursor and stimulant of proteoglycans synthesis. Glucosamine is the essential component required for new proteoglycan synthesis. Recent studies indicate that Glucosamine may decrease the production of inflammatory prostaglandin E2 and enhance Interleukin 1 (IL-1) stimulated human synovial fibroblasts to repair damaged synovial tissue. Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complex (OPC) from grape seeds activates collagen production, repairs damaged collagen fibrils, and protects healthy collagen from free radical damage and inhibits the joint destroying enzyme Collagenase.
Centella asiatica (Gotu kola) is included for its ability to stimulate proline and lysine incorporation into collagen, and enhance the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, especially hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate in connective tissue repair. (Oral forms of chondroitin sulfate are mostly unabsorbed by the mammalian gastrointestinal tract (0-13%) and are too large to make it to cartilage cells even if they were absorbed intact.).
Aesculus hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) is included because of its high concentration of the triterpene saponin Escin, which possesses a marked ability to reduce edema and inflammation. Aesculus also contains a significant amount of Proanthocyanidin, providing additional protection from free radical and enzymatic joint destruction.
Take 2 capsules, 2 times daily as a dietary supplement, or as directed by your healthcare provider.
