The Best Joint Health Supplements

We need our joints to run, walk, type, write, and eat, and without them no task of importance can be done. As we age, our joints take a beating; they become stiffer, and begin to hurt as we bend them back and forth. Working out often and living an active lifestyle can actually make joint problems worse. That’s why many people take proven supplements to increase their joint flexibility and health, as well as decrease pain. offers an extensive line of bone and joint supplements to help you continue an active lifestyle. We carry the best joint health supplements, including Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM.

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

MSM: MSM keeps cells from becoming rigid and softens tissue (“the beauty mineral”), it is believed to relieve stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxify the body and increase blood circulation, reduce muscle cramps, and back pain, help muscles to heal, increases energy, alertness, mental calmness, and the ability to concentrate. MSM scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to food and pollens, helps the liver produce choline, controls acidity in stomach and ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose ability to hang on, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases body’s ability to produce insulin, is important for carbohydrate metabolism, and speeds wound healing.

Hyaluronic Acid – Natural Remedy for Joint Health

Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) is a component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate.  Hyaluronan occurs throughout the body in abundant amounts in many of the places people with hereditary connective tissue disorders have problems such as joints, heart valves and eyes.  Hyaluronic acid abnormalities are a common thread in connective tissue disorders.  Interestingly, they are also common biochemical anomalies in most of the individual features of connective tissue disorders such as mitral valve prolapse, TMJ, osteoarthritis, and keratoconus.

Hyaluronic acid has been nicknamed by the press as the “key to the fountain of youth” because it has been noted that at least some people who ingest a lot of it in their diets tend to live to ripe old ages. ABC News had a show on a village in Japan and hyaluronic acid entitled, “The Village of Long Life: Could Hyaluronic Acid Be an Anti-Aging Remedy?”. (It should be noted that the people in the ABC news show were thought to get high amounts of HA from starchy root vegetables their natural diets. They were not taking supplements.)

While a number of studies have linked abnormal levels of HA to either connective tissue disorders (CTDs) or conditions common in CTDs, such as premature aging, there are also a number of studies on Pubmed noting associations of high levels of HA to some forms of cancer. With HA as with other substances in the human body, such as estrogen and cholesterol, there are most likely optimal levels, and disease often occurs when these levels become out of range in either direction. Low estrogen levels have been linked to bone loss, while high estrogen levels have been associated with breast cancer. High cholesterol levels have been linked to heart attacks and stroke, while low levels have been linked to bleeding problems and depression. HA has been studied less than either cholesterol or estrogen, but the prudent path would be to assume that the body has optimal levels of HA, as it does for cholesterol, estrogen and many other substances.

As such, it is always prudent to consult your doctor before you decide to take HA or any other type of supplement to make sure it is an appropriate treatment for your particular health condition.

“Aging like Wine” Trans-Resveratrol the Secret to Anti-aging

Resveratrol might be a key ingredient in red wine that helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces “bad” cholesterol and prevents blood clots.

Trans-Resveratrol: The secret to anti-aging lies with Tran-Resveratrol, active form of resveratrol polyphenols found in the skins, seeds, and stems of red wine grapes. Trans-Resveratrol remains active only when sheltered from the sun, light, and oxygen. In this pure, ultra beneficial form, Trans-Resveratrol has been proven in studies to activate the SIRT1 longevity gene and enhance cellular productivity. Trans-Resveratrol is found here and available to you at its peak of potency. 

  • Supports a Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Positive Anti-aging effects
  • Most bottles of wine on the market contain less than 1mg of Resveratrol in each bottle. The sure way to get the higher dosages of Resveratrol is through high quality nutritional supplements.

    Resveratrol is a natural substance found in grapes and other plants to help ward off fungus infections. The Resveratrol content in wine varies tremendously. Grapes that have been sprayed with pesticides have less Resveratrol, and grapes grown in humid climates have less Resveratrol. Organic red wines grown in humid climates are usually the wines with the highest Resveratrol content. Most red wines on the market contain little less than 1mg or no Resveratrol. The sure way to get the higher dosages of Resveratrol is the supplementation with organic supplements.

    NutraceuticsRx only uses high quality Polygonum cuspidatum extract standardized to 50% Resveratrol with low emodium content.

    Pine Bark Extract
    Pine bark Extract (Pycnogenol®) has proven to be one of the most potent antioxidants, a property that may explain why pine bark has been used in folk medicine around the world. Pine bark contains complex polyphenols that are among the most potent of any plant. Pine polyphenols are powerful antioxidants, giving benefits to the cardiovascular system and the immune system. They are well known for supporting capillary health. Polyphenols are vigorous free radical scavengers that help the body reduce oxidative stress.

    Pycnogenol® is a combination of some 40 chemicals extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine, Pinus pinaster, which grows in many areas along the Atlantic coast of France and into North Africa. Extracts and teas of pine were commonly used by early Europeans and native Americans, and reportedly are used in Asian medicine as well.

    Scientific studies have also found that Pycnogenol® extends the lifetime of vitamin C in the body, prolonging its beneficial effects as an antioxidant.

    Deal of the Week: Colorado Nutrition’s Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

    Alpha Lipoic Acid was mentioned in Readers Digest article “New Pill That Stops Aging.”

    Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

    Alpha Lipoic Acid and Diabetes

    Alpha Lipoic Acid is prescribed in Germany for adult onset of diabetes. There it has been shown to help for the following reasons:

    *Recommended supplementation for diabetic neuropathy is 800mg/day

    Alpha Lipoic Acid Helps to preserve brain function in aging adults.
    Results from animal studies indicate that alpha-lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. Much remains to be learned about whether this occurs in humans, but it may be worth trying this powerful antioxidant when a disease such as Alzheimer’s starts to erode memory. In addition, alpha-lipoic acid holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.

    Food Sources of Alpha Lipoic Acid include:

    • Red meats and other Organ Meats such as Heart and Kidney
    • Broccoli
    • Spinach
    • Yeast (Particuarly Brewer’s Yeast)

    A Clean Digestive System can Lead to Better Overall Health

    Nearly every health concern from cancer to ulcers can be traced back to
    your digestive system. Whether it’s the obvious problems that come with
    indigestion such as bloating, heartburn, gas, irregularity or more serious
    immune issues, it all comes down to what’s going on inside your gut. Not
    only is your digestive system responsible for breaking down foods and
    sending critical nutrients into your bloodstream, it’s also where most
    of your immune system resides.

    Everything entering your mouth or nose can reach the GI tract. So
    everything we breathe, eat, or drink creates a potential invasion into
    our internal environment. If pathogens survive the trip through the
    acids and enzymes of the upper part of the GI tract, they find the
    perfect permanent home in the colon. As a result, the colon is often the
    seat of many chronic problems. When you take into account many of our
    society’s current habits, it’s easy to understand how pathogenic
    bacteria can easily gain a strong foothold right there in your gut.

    For instance, we now consume less fiber and more refined carbohydrates
    than at any other time in history. Both of these habits slow bowel
    transit time (allowing toxins to sit in your body for far too long) and
    help provide fuel for harmful bacteria strains. On top of that,
    excessive use of antibiotics and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anit-inflammatory
    drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen) has become widespread,
    which throw off the delicate balance of good, necessary bacteria in
    your gut.

    It’s no wonder that most people in this country complain about no energy
    and are constantly sick. Their imbalanced colons support colonies of
    pathogenic bacteria, which are constantly spewing toxins into their
    system. Their immune system is in a constant fight just trying to keep
    things under control.

    Now for the good news, It’s not that hard to turn all this around
    enjoy comfortable digestion, and get your immune system armed and ready
    for any invasion. It all comes down to balancing the bacterial flora in
    your gut. There is no doubt that proper digestion, absorption,
    elimination, and immune response; all dependent on bacterial flora; must
    be maintained if you want to remain healthy. Every day, groups of
    individuals are exposed to the same pathogens; but not everyone gets
    sick. A strong immune system response determines your ability to fend
    off premature aging, sickness, and disease. And a strong immune system
    requires the proper flora in the bowels.

    And that’s surprisingly simple to achieve. By eating certain types of
    foods, you can feed your body the healthy, good bacteria it needs to
    keep your immune system strong and your digestive system running well.
    You can also do a Natural Colon Cleanse to clear out the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, intestines and colon.

    It’s baffling why conventional medicine hasn’t been able to grasp
    or accept this concept. Obviously, the pharmaceutical companies stand to
    make a lot more money selling antibiotics and other medications than
    recommending a daily dose of fruit or vegetables.

    With impending digestive threats all around you, you should take every precautionary measure to boost your immune system and keep your GI tract clear in order to ensure optimal health.

    DEAL OF THE WEEK: NRx Picamilon 100mg 60caps

    • Improves learning & Concentration
    • Promotes Relaxation
    • Relieves Stress, Tension & Pressure
    • Helps Relieve Headaches
    • Aids in recovery from Stress and Fatigue
    Picamilon is useful for mitigating the negative effects of stress, providing a feeling of tranquilization without the feeling of sedation that can come from other drugs. Picamilon’s effects can be felt quickly and last for up to six hours. Consistent use can show a noticeable improvement in concentration and an increase in energy and endurance.

    Picamilon is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it splits into GABA and niacin. The GABA then stimulates GABA receptors producing a calming effect. GABA is the main inhibiting neurotransmitter that regulates neuronal excitability. The niacin causes vasodilation, or a widening of the blood vessels, which can lead to the relief of headaches and lower the blood pressure.

    *Picamilon has been used in Russia for years to treat depression, anxiety, glaucoma, headache, and brain injury.
