Synergistic Glucosamine MSM Formula - Maintain Healthy Joint Function, 180 caps, (Doctor's Best)

Free Gift For Order Over $50. Check out our gift selection.

Synergistic Glucosamine/MSM Formula supplies only sodium-free, potassium-stabilized glucosamine sulfate. OptiMSM is pure MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a naturally-occuring source of organic dietary sulfur that is readily absorbed and utilized by the body to meet its sulfur needs.
  • Science-based nutrition 
  • Dietary supplement 
  • Maintains healthy joints and connective tissue
Glucosamine Sulfate supports normal, healthy joint function and helps maintain healthy cartilage in joints.* MSM supports organ and joint function by donating sulfur for maintenance of healthy connective tissue.* Vitamin C is essential for production of collagen, a protein that gives strength to cartilage.* 
 
Glucosamine sulfate (GS) supports joint function by supplying the body with dietary ingredients (glucosamine and sulfur) for building joint cartilage. Glucosamine, an amino sugar that is essential to the glycosaminoglycans found in cartilage and synovial fluid, stimulates chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to manufacture cartilage building blocks known as proteoglycans. These building blocks contribute to the maintenance of sound joint structure, ultimately enhancing healthy joint function. Additionally, glucosamine inhibits unhelpful catabolic enzymes and can aid in the balance of interleukin-1β levels in synovial fluid. A recent in vitro investigation examining the molecular biology of chondrocytes found 18 different proteins that were modulated by glucosamine sulfate. In conjunction with other studies, this new evidence suggests that GS fights cytokine-mediated oxidative stress in chondrocytes. 
 
Sulfur is a mineral that maintains the structural stability and strength of various tissues by forming sulfur "tie-bars" (sulfhydryl bonds) between connective tissue proteins. MSM supplies the body with nature's primary source of organic bioavailable sulfur. 
 
Vitamin C is required for reactions that occur during the production of collagen, an important component of joints, tendons, and skin. An adequate supply of Vitamin C enhances the normal maintenance of these structures. 
 
Why Is Potassium-Stabilized Glucosamine Sulfate Preferable? 
In order for glucosamine sulfate to be processed for oral intake as a supplement, it must be stabilized with either sodium or potassium to become bioavailable. Either mineral works for this purpose, yet potassium is preferable because the Standard American Diet tends to be high in sodium and low in potassium. Furthermore, studies have shown that people needing joint support are often also low in both salivary potassium and total body potassium.5,6 Thus, potassium-stabilized glucosamine sulfate serves to provide both the bioavailability of the glucosamine sulfate and the potassium needed for healthy joint support. 
 
Glucosamine Sulfate: A Solid Foundation of Clinical Evidence 
In Europe, implementation of glucosamine for joint health has been studied for 4 decades, including some of the most comprehensive clinical trials on this ingredient. A 3- year, randomized, placebo-controlled and double-blind study of 202 subjects concluded that glucosamine sulfate is safe and effective in both promoting joint function and maintaining joint structure. In addition to its potential to influence joint structure (and thus function), research also backs the ability of GS to influence joint comfort. A short-term (4- week) randomized, double-blind, parallelgroup study of 200 subjects showed that GS taken orally can indeed promote comfortable joint function. Similar results were obtained from a multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel- group study of 252 subjects, where joint comfort in the knee was found to be higher in the GS group. More recently, yet another study (318 subjects) found GS (1,500 mg daily) to be more effective than placebo in enhancing joint comfort. Key among findings from these types of studies is the reoccurring theme of a good safety profile for glucosamine sulfate; reported “side effects” of GS were essentially no different than placebo. 
 
The Sum Is Greater Than the Parts 
Glucosamine/MSM combo formulations have also been designated effective at synergistically enhancing joint function in clinical studies over the years. In one such study, a total of 118 subjects were randomized into one of four groups for 12 weeks: glucosamine (500 mg three times daily), MSM (500 mg three times daily), the combination of glucosamine and MSM, or a placebo treatment. Glucosamine alone and MSM alone were shown to enhance joint function, while the combination was found to be even more effective, by both subjective and objective measurements. 
 
MSM In Action: How It Works 
The human body requires a continuous supply of bioavailable sulfur. MSM supports joint and organ function by donating sulfur for formation of sulfur tie-bars that maintain the structural integrity of cartilage and other tissues. It may reinforce the stability of cell membranes and promote maintenance of joint health by scavenging free radicals. MSM may especially contribute to cartilage formation when sulfur is deficient in the diet. A recent in vitro study points toward other possible mechanisms in its joint-supportive properties. When inducing an immune response, the researchers found that MSM strongly inhibited cytokine production in the stimulated macrophages, and blocked degradation of regulating proteins NF-kB. 
 
Results from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial examining the effect of MSM supplementation on joint comfort in 50 men and women are promising. Subjects were administered OptiMSM methylsulfonylmethane for 12 weeks, ramping up to 6 grams per day by the end of the first week (for the duration of the study). Those taking OptiMSM® experienced greater joint comfort than those taking placebo, suggesting potential for MSM as a joint support nutrient that warrants further investigation in larger clinical trials. MSM also produced statistically significant changes in urinary malondialdehyde, a marker of oxidative stress. 
 
Older research on MSM led to the filing of several patents that cover numerous uses of MSM as a dietary ingredient for both humans and animals. Through these studies, it was surmised that physical and psychological stress might increase in the body when MSM is not at optimal levels. Clinical observations suggest that MSM supports the digestive and immune systems, as well as the maintenance of healthy cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. MSM is rapidly excreted from the body, and sufficient animal research provides a good basis for assuming that it is nontoxic in humans even at high dosage levels. 
 
More Reasons to Supplement Your Diet With MSM 
Widespread in nature, MSM is found in a variety of foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, raw milk, raw meat and raw fish. However, MSM is a volatile substance easily lost during cooking, pasteurization, food processing and storage. The average American diet supplies at best a marginal MSM intake, which may be inadequate to maintain the optimum MSM concentration in the body. The body's MSM concentration is also believed to decline with increasing age.

SUGGESTED USAGE
As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules three times daily, with or without food.

Brenda  "Really helpeful"
I used this product to help me out with my joints. It really worked and the pain is pretty much not there anymore.

Eddie  "Really works"
I had a really long time without playing baseball. Maybe over 15 years and I tried to get right back into it. It didn't really work out for me because my joints were all creaking and this really helped get rid of that. I definitely saw the benefits.

FAQ

What do Doctor’s Best products NOT contain? 
Milk, egg, wheat, corn, sugar, sweeteners, starch, salt, preservatives, or waxes. Because only natural products are used, taste, color and odor may vary. 
 
If you’re allergic to shellfish, is it safe to take Glucosamine Sulfate? 
People who are allergic to shellfish are allergic to the MEAT, not to the shells. The meat is not used to create the glucosamine, it is the ground-up shell. 
 
Why does Doctor’s Best offer Lignisul MSM and not another brand? 
Two major reasons for selecting Lignisul were and continue to be:
  • 1. It is made in the U.S. by using raw materials which are “grown” in the U.S. (pine trees);
  • 2. the quality control used in all aspects of Lignisul’s production are the best in the industry.
The facts about Bioperine: Bioperine is a high purity compound extracted from black pepper and practically devoid of other compounds of black pepper which, like safarole, are contributing to the controversy of black pepper being carcinogenic. Piperine is not a carcinogen, and at a purity level of minimum 98% (Bioperine) it should not pose any concerns related to black pepper or black pepper extract. 
 
Doctor’s Best Gelatin capsule information: 
The gelatin used to make Doctor’s Best capsules is manufactured in accordance with strict guidelines that ensure it is BSE-free. The FDA developed these guidelines. Our gelatin is made only from cattle living in non-BSE countries. All Doctor’s Best capsules are in full compliance with the FDA’s guidance for our industry. 
 
What about Veggie Caps? 
Unlike ordinary animal-derived gelatin capsules, Veggie Caps are made from 100% pesticide-free plant material. If you’re a strict vegetarian or gelatin capsules present a problem for you, Veggie Caps are right for you. 
 
What is HPLC? 
HPLC stands for “High Performance Liquid Chromatography.” this is analytical lab testing method that is used to quantify the active ingredients in herbs. It is considered to be a very sensitive and accurate test. HPLC testing is recognized as a quality benchmark for herbal extracts. 
 
How long should it take for a capsule to dissolve? 
Approximately 30-45 minutes. For a 2-piece gelatin capsule, the USP standard for maximum dissolution time is 45 minutes.  
 
How does Celadrin compare with Best Glucosamine? 
Celadrin is a complex of fatty acids that can affect the expression of certain cytokines that mediate occasional problems in the joints and other tissues. In this way, Celadrin actually complements the actions of glucosamine, which is a necessary building block for joint and cartilage tissue. Together, Celadrin and glucosamine provide an effective means to maintain the health and integrity of joint tissue. 
 
Why is it important to supplement Calcium with Strontium Bone Maker? 
Studies in postmenopausal women diagnosed with osteoporosis showed a strong benefit in women taking strontium plus calcium/Vitamin D versus woment taking calcium/Vitamin D plus a placebo. In one such study of 1,442 women, the strontium group had significant increases in bone mineral density and lumbar risk decreased by 41% compared to those given calcium/Vitamin D plus placebo. 
 
NOTE: Should be taken at a different time of day, preferably 2 hours before or after any calcium supplement. It is also extremely important that adequate calcium and Vitamin D is taken, as strontium can compete with calcium uptake into bone. 
 
What is an “ORAC Value”? 
Short for “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity,” ORAC is a widely method which measures the ability of foods and other substances to quench oxygen free radicals. Fruits such as cranberry, strawberry, plum, pink grapefruit, and tomato have very high ORAC values.
