Healthy Joints gummies are formulated to gently support healthy joints and ease joint stiffness that happens during active daily routines.

Glucosamine is a compound that occurs naturally in your body. One of its main roles is to support the healthy development of articular cartilage, a type of smooth white tissue that covers the ends of your bones where they meet to form joints. Along with the lubricating liquid called synovial fluid, articular cartilage minimizes friction and allows bones to move freely and painlessly across one another. More specifically, it is thought that glucosamine promotes the creation of certain chemical compounds, including collagen, that are important structural components of articular cartilage and synovial fluid. Some studies indicate that taking glucosamine supplements may protect joint tissue by preventing the breakdown of cartilage, particularly in athletes.

Chondroitin sulfate is a compound present naturally in the body as an essential part of hyaline cartilage, a tissue that cushions your joints. When taken as a daily supplement, Chondroitin increases the synthesis of various cartilage components while also preventing cartilage breakdown.

Methylsulfonylmethane, more commonly known as MSM, is a popular dietary supplement used to treat a wide array of symptoms and conditions. MSM has been shown to benefit those with joint degeneration, a common cause of pain in the knees, back, hands and hips. Joint degeneration can negatively impact your quality of life by limiting your movement and mobility. Studies have shown that MSM significantly reduces inflammation in your body. It also inhibits the breakdown of cartilage, a flexible tissue that protects the ends of your bones in joints.

1. Nagaoka, Isao et al. “Chondroprotective action of glucosamine, a chitosan monomer, on the joint health of athletes.” International journal of biological macromolecules vol. 132 (2019): 795-800. doi:10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2019.03.234

It has been reported that cartilage metabolism (type II collagen degradation) is enhanced in endurance athletes with intense joint loading. Notably, glucosamine, a chitosan monomer, exhibits a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by inhibiting type II collagen degradation. This study demonstrated that taking glucosamine daily for 3 months significantly decreased cartilage breakdown in collegiate soccer players and professional rugby players.

MSM, acting as an antioxidant, is able to blunt tissue damage and the resulting inflammation and, as a consequence, prevent leukocyte apoptosis. As inflammation induced by exercise may cause prolonged muscle soreness, these data are in agreement with the results noting a reduction in muscle soreness after exercise with MSM supplementation. Based on these results, we speculate that MSM taken during intense bouts of exercise would reduce post-exercise immunosuppression.

Participants were randomized in a double-blind placebo-controlled fashion into two groups. Subjects consumed daily either placebo (200 mL water) or MSM supplement (50 mg/kg MSM in 200 mL water) for 10 days. Afterward, participants ran 14 km. Blood samples were taken before supplementation, before exercise, immediately, 30 min, 2, 24 and 48 hour after exercise. It seems that 10-day supplementation with MSM has allowed to decrease muscle damage via effect on antioxidant capacity.

Glucosamine and chondroitin supplementation may lower systemic inflammation and alter other pathways in healthy, overweight individuals. This study adds evidence for potential mechanisms supporting epidemiologic findings that glucosamine and chondroitin are associated with reduced risk of lung and colorectal cancer.

Glucosamine is a widely used supplement typically taken for osteoarthritis and joint pain. Emerging evidence suggests potential links of glucosamine with glucose metabolism, inflammation, and cardiometabolic risk. Researchers prospectively analyzed the association of habitual glucosamine use with risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and assessed whether genetic susceptibility and inflammation status might modify the association. Their findings indicate that glucosamine use is associated with a lower risk of incident T2D.

Articular cartilage is a highly specialized tissue whose remarkable properties of deformability, resistance to mechanical loading, and low-friction gliding are essential to joint function. Due to its role as a cushion in bone articulation, articular cartilage is subject to many types of damaging insults, including decades of wear and tear, and acute joint injuries. However, this built-for-life tissue has a very poor intrinsic ability in adulthood to durably heal defects created by damaging insults.

Based on the preclinical and clinical data, it is obvious that chondroprotectives such as glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and other nutrients, such as antioxidants and PUFAs, can modulate osteoarthritis. In long-term use they exhibit, in contrast to NSAIDs, an excellent safety profile, with as few adverse events as placebo. The chondroprotectives are essential components of the cartilage metabolism and stimulate important cartilage regeneration processes, thereby adjusting the imbalance of catabolic and anabolic processes in osteoarthritis.

In summary, MSM shows positive effects in improving joint function, relieving symptoms associated with joint degeneration—including joint pain, joint stiffness, joint swelling, difficulty walking, difficulty getting up from bed and difficulty going down stairs—and improving quality of life, in elderly populations.

In this study, 22 healthy women received either MSM or a placebo per day for three weeks leading up to a half marathon. The MSM group reported less muscle soreness and joint pain than the placebo group.
