How Superflex-3 Can Help

Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder that causes cartilage to become weak and thin. Without the necessary cushion between bones, inflammation can increase, causing severe discomfort. Superflex-3 is packed with nutrients that may help relieve inflammation, alleviate joint aches and pains, and improve joint mobility.

WHAT IS GLUCOSAMINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Healthy cartilage needs three things: water for lubrication and nourishment, proteoglycans to attract and hold the water, and collagen to keep the proteoglycans in place.

Proteoglycans are like a rope that threads itself through the collage and are essential as they hold many times their own weight of water, which both lubricates and nourishes the collagen. If the cartilage is damaged the thread of rope becomes weak and leaks out and thus the collagen loses its nourishment as the proteoglycans lose their grip and float away. And in this environment, cartilage cannot withstand shocks and cracks, and may even wear out completely.

Glucosamine is a major building block of the water. It acts as a stimulus to the cells that produce proteoglycans. In fact, glucosamine is a key factor in determining how many proteoglycans the cells produce. Glucosamine has been shown to speed up production of both proteoglycans and collagen and it normalises cartilage metabolism which helps keep cartilage from breaking down. In short: glucosamine strengthens your body’s natural repair mechanisms.

CHONDROITIN SULPHATE

Where glucosamine helps form the proteoglycans that sit within the space in the cartilage, chondroitin sulphate acts like “liquid magnets.” Chondroitin attracts fluid into the proteoglycan molecules. This is important because the fluid acts as a spongy shock absorber. The fluid sweeps the nutrients into the cartilage. Joint cartilage has no blood supply thus all of its nourishment and lubrication comes from the fluid that ebbs and flows as pressure is applied and released to the joint. Without this fluid, cartilage would become malnourished, drier, thinner and more fragile.

HOW CHONDROITIN SULPHATE WORKS

Chondroitin Sulphate is a long chain molecule with a negative charge attached to it. As these chains wrap around proteoglycans they repel each other and create spaces between each proteoglycan. These are what are known as matrixes within the cartilage and this is where the fluid flows. There may be as many as 10,000 of these chains on a single proteoglycan molecule. Chondroitin protects cartilage and stops it from breaking down and inhibits certain enzymes that may interfere with the metabolism of other enzymes that can starve the cartilage of fluid.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): MSM is a naturally occurring nutrient and sulfur compound that promotes healthy inflammation response. Sulfur is a component of bones, teeth, and collagen (the protein in connective tissue) and also helps you maintain a healthy inflammatory response in joint tissue. The mineral sulfur is needed for the manufacture of many proteins, including those forming hair, muscles, and skin.

VITAMIN D3:Known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D3 can be found in small amounts in a few foods, including fatty fish such as herring, mackerel, sardines and tuna. To make Vitamin D more available, it is added to dairy products, juices, and cereals. But most Vitamin D (80% to 90% of what the body gets) is obtained through exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D3 is also used for treating weak bones (osteoporosis), bone pain (osteomalacia), bone loss in people with a condition called hyperparathyroidism and an inherited disease (osteogenesis imperfecta) in which the bones are especially brittle and easily broken. It is also used for preventing falls and fractures in people at risk for osteoporosis, and preventing low calcium and bone loss (renal osteodystrophy) in people with kidney failure.
