Joint Builder Ultra 90 tablets - glucosamine, MSM, yucca, boswellia, hyaluronic acid and boron for total joint health | discontinued
Jarrow Formulas Ultra Joint Builder offers total joint health by providing nutrients and botanicals that support proper cartilage formation and joint lubrication. Ultra Joint Builder will not just make joints healthier but also make skin, hair and nails look better.
who can benefit from Ultra Joint Builder
People who want to promote joint health and comfort can benefit from the building blocks for cartilage, lubrication and synovial fluid included in Ultra Joint Builder.
Joint problems are the most common form of disability in America as well as in Europe and will likely become more prevalent as baby boomers age.
Injuries and the demands of constant use can damage joint cartilage, particularly of the knee, elbow, shoulder, thumb and fingers. Repair of cartilage is a slow process, becoming even slower with age. Aspirin and other medications can relieve pain but do nothing to encourage joint repair.
Age and poor diet exacerbate joint damage and can lead to irreversible problems. Healing is dependent upon adequate nutrition. Many of the foundational nutrients for joint health, such as vitamin C and manganese, are obtained from a high quality multivitamin supplement. Other essentials to promote joint health are contained in Ultra Joint Builder.
Jarrow Formulas Ultra Joint Builder contains:
- hyaluronic acid from Hyal-Joint®provides the matrix for joint lubrication (synovial fluid), skin hydration and skin repair. Hyaluronic acid has clinically documented bioavailability, having been shown to increase synovial fluid and improve joint mobility.
- Glucosamine sulfate is a stable form of glucosamine, which supports the proper formation of tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, bones, skin, nails and blood vessels
- MSM (methylsulfonyl methane) is a sulfur donor; sulfur is essential for the formation of chondroitin sulfates.
- Yucca extract contains the dried, pure juice of the yucca plant, which contains more naturally occurring saponins than the dried stalk. Yucca also contains polyphenols. Traditionally, Native Americans used the juice of the yucca plant to improve joint health.
- Après Flex Boswellia serrata which includes a proprietary boswellia oleoresin component) is clinically documented to support joint health and function and protects against collagen degradation.
- Boron is essential for healthy bone and joint function.
highlights of Ultra Joint Builder
• supports joint mobility and integrity
• Ultra Joint Builder uses ingredients that don't just complement each other but also work synergistically to build and maintain joints
• contains a high molecular weight form of hyaluronic acid
Glucosamine—Connecting the Parts
Glucosamine is naturally produced by the body and is a basic unit in connective tissue, like cartilage in the knee.
Glucosamine is abundant while young but is lost with age, leading to cartilage thinning. Glucosamine sulfate is a stable, clinically studied form of glucosamine. Several studies have demonstrated glucosamine sulfate to be beneficial in the repair of damaged joints.
AprésFLEX ™: the next generation boswellia serrata extract
AprèsFLEX™ is a new, patent-pending dietary ingredient targeting mediators of comfort and flexibility. These include 5-lipoxygenase, 5-LOX activating protein (FLAP), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and other important mechanisms.
By supporting normal, healthy levels of these mediators, AprèsFLEX promotes healthy joints and connective tissues. This clinically tested ingredient supports joint health and function and protects against collagen degradation.
Lubricating hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found in many tissues, such as skin, cartilage, and the eye. Hyaluronic acid coats and protects each cell, acting as both lubricant and shock absorber in joints.
In weakened joints, changes occur in hyaluronic acid that lead to cartilage degradation, and oral hyaluronic acid appears to offer positive effects. Recently, smaller and more easily absorbed hyaluronic acid molecules have been produced for oral intake. Ultra Joint Builder utilizes these smaller hyaluronic acid molecules derived from biological fermentation, with clinically documented bioavailability.
MSM - sulfur support
The element sulfur is required for the repair and maintenance of joint tissues. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a biological form of sulfur popular for its nutritional support in joint health and repair.
Human trials suggest that MSM helps positively modulate pain. In one trial, glucosamine and MSM individually supported joint health but were more effective in combination. Jarrow Formulas uses the highest quality MSM available.
Yucca extract - a Native American remedy
Yucca Extract is the dried, pure juice of the yucca plant, which contains more saponins than the dried stalk. Yucca also contains polyphenols that function as antioxidants to scavenge free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS).
Traditionally, Native Americans used the juice of the yucca plant to improve joint health.
Boron - importance in joint health
The element boron is essential for plants but only recently become understood as important in human health.
A correlation seems to exist between low dietary boron and a high prevalence of some joint problems. It has been found that where boron intake is low, incidence of clinical joint pain is high (20-70%), while where boron intake is high, clinical joint pain is much lower (0-10%).
Unfortunately, getting enough boron can be difficult. Levels in plant foods are rather low, and many people do not eat enough fruits and vegetables to ensure adequate intake. Therefore, supplementation is very useful.
Jarrow Formulas Ultra Joint Builder addresses total joint health by providing nutrients for proper cartilage formation, facilitating proper joint lubrication and promoting a healthy inflammatory response within the joint.
For best results, use with Jarrow Formulas JarroSil™, the biologically Activated Silicon™. Silicon enhances collagen and cartilage integrity.
