Natural Factors MSM Joint Formula Overall Review: 3 out of 5.

MSM Joint Formula contains Methyl-sulfonyl-methane, glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. These compounds together are believed to keep joints strong and promote the health of cartilage, especially in the bodies of people suffering from arthritis.

MSM is found in many foods, as well as in some primitive plants. Some researchers have suggested that MSM has anti-inflammatory effects. It is most commonly used as an aid in the treatment of osteoarthritis. MSM is normally combined with other ingredients that are naturally found in the body, as well as taken by itself.

Glucosamine is a combination of glucose, an amino sugar, and glutamine, a carbohydrate. Both of these compounds work to ease the pain in joints and promote proper lubrication in the cartilage. They are natural components found in our bodies. Glucosamine is found to inhibit certain enzymes that destroy cartilage by blocking disease-causing agents that lead to articular degeneration. Glucosamine can help delay the progression of the disease and may relieve some symptoms.

Chondroitin Sulfate helps stimulate the production of cartilage and has the power to keep enzymes from dissolving cartilage. It allows proper circulation of blood to joints.  This helps the glucosamine to enter inflamed joints and encourage the restoration required for the regression of osteoarthritis.
