Bio-Glucosamine + MSM cream contains cartilage maintaining nutrients, and is formulated to help soothe aching joints and maintain normal joint mobility. Bio-Glucosamine +MSM cream contains two main ingredients, glucosamine (sulphate form) and MSM (methylsulphonylmethane). Glucosamine is a naturally occurring sugar-related nutrient, which is important in normal joint function. Glucosamine is produced within the body; however as people age the capacity to manufacture sufficient levels of glucosamine is reduced. Supplements are the best source of additional glucosamine, since there are no accessible food sources of this substance. Commercially available glucosamine supplements are derived from the shells of shrimps, crabs or oysters. MSM is a natural compound containing sulphur (required by the body for normal growth and development). MSM is required for the normal formation of bone and collagen in connective tissues, and for healthy skin, hair and nails. This product also contains menthol and Japanese mint (Mentha arvensis) to help provide immediate analgesic activity, together with herbal extracts of Butcher’s broom (Ruscus aculeatus) and Hawaiian white ginger (Hedychium coronarium) to promote healthyblood circulation.
