Ultra Joint Builder 90 tablets - glucosamine, MSM, yucca, boswellia, hyaluronic acid and boron for total joint health | Jarrow Formulas
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 sulfateis 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.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Is 5G safe enough?In the last few months, we've been bombarded with news about whether or not to cooperate with Huawei in the creation of a 5G-network, due to fear of being spied upon by the Chinese government.
However, it is rare to see concerns being spoken about the possible health effects of introducing a 5G-network, which is necessary in order to create the ability for the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).
What is 5G?5G, also known as 5th generation mobile networks or wireless systems, is considered the next phase in mobile technology. These wireless systems are the transmitters that carry signals to our cell phones and other wireless devices.
While the public isn’t operating on 5G yet, it’s anticipated that over the next decade, most wireless carriers will shift to 5G technology. This transition is expected to bring better coverage, lower battery consumption, faster Internet connection speeds, and the ability to support a growing market of products other than phones and tablets that feature wireless integration.
Return to sports after knee surgery, is it possible?
Whether you are a top athlete or an amateur, it will happen to you do one day or later: you will have a sports injury.
One of the most common dramatic sports injuries is a torn anterior cruciate ligament, abbreviated to ACL.
When you tear your anterior cruciate ligament or ACL your knee swells with blood. When the knee swells, that triggers a cascade of events which causes you to lose quadriceps strength. In addition you will notice that your thigh looks a lot smaller than the other one. That is due to atrophy of the quadriceps which occurs after an ACL injury.
In addition to the loss of quadriceps strength and atrophy which accompanies an ACL tear you will also notice loss of motion and in most cases a fair amount of pain.
Many athletes choose to have ACL surgery to improve their chance of returning to the same level of performance as they had before.
The sad reality is that many athletes can not return to sports after ACL surgery. The reasons for this vary. As such, there is a lot of research taking place to improve your chance for a successful return to sports after an ACL reconstruction.
But first the question whether ACL surgery should be done.
Glucosamine for healthy joints and gutGlucosamine is a compound naturally found within the cartilage of our joints, made from chains of sugars and proteins bound together. It acts as one of the body’s natural shock-absorbents and joint lubricants, allowing us to move around without joint, bone and muscle pains.
Glucosamine possesses natural anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. One of the most popular supplements taken by people with bone and joint pain, glucosamine aids in treating common symptoms of age-related disorders like arthritis and osteoarthritis.
It can also help improve digestion and gut health, mobility, range of motion and general joint health, even in healthy people who have no chronic joint or bowel disorders.
Without glucosamine, everyday movements and tasks would be very difficult and painful. The body needs glucosamine for the synthesis of certain proteins and fats that form various important tissues, especially cartilage. This plays an important part in the construction of our joints, tendons and ligaments. In addition, it helps form the (synovial) fluids that surround joints and provide lubrication.
Glucosamine also serves an important role in microbial health. It helps form connective tissue that make up parts of the digestive tract, a system that helps the immune system function.
Botox: what is it and is it dangerous?Nowadays, you often hear how people have used botox in order to get rid of unwanted wrinkles. Apparently, 3 out of 4 users are satisfied enough to recommend it to others. As a matter of fact, botox has become so popular, there are even so-called 'botox parties' in which the guests all receive injections while having a drink and bite.
Although botox was approved for medical use almost 30 years ago in 1989, it was only approved for cosmetic treatment 15 years later in 2002.
Botox became rapidly popular as a solution to sagging skin. So much so, that perhaps you too are considering to do it as well.
However it is a smart idea to get familiar with how botox works and what to expect in order to make a smart decision.
Scoliosis, and kyphosis, how much does it influence your fitness level?
The leading personal trainer and researcher Brat Contreras, famous for his glute-building hip thrust exercise that earned him the title 'Glute Guy', made the following statement:
"In my experience as a personal trainer, it seems that the whole darn world is preoccupied with some sort of perceived imbalance, anatomical anomaly, or dysfunction that they've been made aware of by a prior trainer, physical therapist, chiropractor, doctor, or manual therapist. The vast majority of individuals come to me and warn me right away about their gluteal amnesia, or leg length discrepancy, or pelvic torsion, or tight hip flexors.
Why are we so much less flexible when we age?
We cannot stop but smile at how adorable babies and toddlers look when they move: they may be clumsy but their little bodies can bend as if they have no bones to stop their amazing range of motion. The reason is these toddlers have a very high amount of collagen in their joints.
