What is a joint health supplement?
A joint health supplement consists of ingredients that work in combination to support and protect healthy joint cartilage. Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. is an industry leader in research, development, and manufacturing of high quality joint health supplements for you.
What is joint cartilage?
Cartilage is a slippery, cushion like tissue between your bones. Joints are the junction between two or more bones. The ends of the bones are covered with cartilage which serves as a smooth, resilient cushion that allows the joint to move freely. Joints also have a synovial tissue lining that encloses them and secretes a lubricating fluid. The stability of the joint is supported by ligaments that connect bone to bone; and tendons that connect the ends of muscles to bone. Cartilage in the joint is produced and maintained by its own specialized cells. When you do even the simplest of everyday activities, there is tremendous pressure on your joints. The protective cartilage cushion and joint fluid work together like a shock absorber to allow for proper joint flexibility.
Why is cartilage important for joint health?
Cartilage serves as a protective layer between bones allowing them to move freely without pain. With age and other factors, cartilage starts to break down, resulting in stiffness and pain. The body cannot correct this process by itself, but using joint health supplements can help.
Why does cartilage break down?
There are many factors that lead to cartilage breakdown:
- Excess weight
- Over activity
If you start to notice changes in your flexibility or overall joint function, it’s best to visit your doctor and discuss Cosamin.
