Information About Shaklee's Advanced Joint Health

Over 28 million Americans have some form of joint-related issue.

Click Here for Shaklee Advanced Joint Health ComplexMost of these situations are related to two factors, age and weight. Sometimes, there are also injuries and other things which might also contribute to the problem. For example, I am 68, have osteoarthritis, but, in addition, am on a medication which has caused weight gain, and which, as a side effect of the medication itself, produces joint pain.

As we age, we tend to increasingly encounter the ravages of time upon our joints. Weight gain also increases the chance for joint pain.

Approximately two thirds of American citizens are overweight.

Did you know that for every pound you gain you add four additional pounds of pressure on your knees and six additional pounds of pressure on your hips?

These additional pounds can put extra strain on your joints especially as this overweight condition lasts over days, weeks, months, and years.

Without healthy joints, common activities such as bending, sitting, and walking would all be challenging. That’s because joints serve as links between bones that provide stability and control body movement. Cartilage is an essential component of joints that provides cushioning between bones and helps absorb shock from physical impact. As we age, this protective cushioning breaks down naturally.

Additional factors such as continued physical stress and overexertion can further accelerate the breakdown of cartilage by causing the release of chemicals that attack cartilage. As a result, many people of all ages experience joint discomfort and limited mobility.

Advanced Joint Health Complex* from Shaklee contains a patent-pending, fast-acting form of boswellia extract that has been shown in a clinical study to improve joint comfort in as few as 5 days.*

This scientifically formulated blend also contains the most concentrated form of glucosamine. Glucosamine is clinically proven to:

  • Promote mobility*
  • Enhance flexibility*
  • Improve joint function*
  • Support long-term joint health*
Shaklee's Advanced Joint Health Complex* also includes a specially designed combination of key joint-health nutrients: zinc, copper, manganese, and vitamin C...each ingredient playing a unique and critical role in building healthy connective collagen and cartilage.*

INGREDIENTS

Boswellia Extract

Derived from the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree, this botanical extract contains boswellic acids that inhibit the formation of leukotrienes, chemicals produced by the body that attack joint tissue and contribute to joint discomfort. The proprietary boswellia extract used in advanced Joint Health Complex* contains a high concentration of AKBA (3-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid), a boswellic acid, as well as other natural boswellia constituents that, when combined, exhibit bioactivity superior to that of AKBA alone.

In a recent clinical study, participants who took the boswellia extract in advanced Joint Health Complex* reported more joint comfort, better ease of motion, and greater ability to perform daily activities than those who took another form of boswellia extract containing higher levels of AKBA.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is an amino sugar that serves as a key building block of proteoglycans, structural components of cartilage and the fluid between bones that provides lubrication.

Numerous studies published over the years indicate that taking a glucosamine supplement can help improve range of motion, mobility, and flexibility.

Multiyear studies also suggest glucosamine supplementation improves long-term joint health; advanced Joint Health Complex* features glucosamine hydrochloride, the most concentrated source of glucosamine. It is also derived from a vegetable source, unlike most glucosamine that comes from shellfish.

Vitamin C

Advanced Joint Health Complex* delivers 100% of the Daily Value (DV) of vitamin C, an essential nutrient needed for collagen synthesis.

Zinc, Copper, and Manganese

These trace minerals are required to build collagen and glycosaminoglycans—components of connective tissue.

HOW IT WORKS

Shaklee's Advanced Joint Health Complex* supports healthy joints in three ways:
  1. Improves cushioning: Glucosamine helps maintain cartilage...the protective cushioning between joints that allows them to move more freely.*

  2. Maintains healthy connective tissue: Zinc, copper, manganese, and vitamin C help build collagen and other important components of connective tissue that give strength and structure to joints.*

  3. Increases joint comfort: Boswellia extract inhibits the formation of cartilage-attacking chemicals and works fast to improve joint comfort.*
RESEARCH

As shown in one clinical study, the boswellia extract in advanced Joint Health Complex* works in as few as 5 days†—up to 28% faster than claimed by Osteo Bi-Flex®1, a national leading brand.

Participants in a 90-day clinical study were asked to rate their level of comfort and ease of motion before and after taking joint-health products. Results showed that the boswellia extract in advanced Joint Health Complex* scored significantly better than the boswellia extract in Osteo Bi-Flex®1 in both categories.
