Veterinarian-formulated Arthroplex contains glucosamine sulfate, one of the safest and most widely-researched ingredients for arthritis (osteoarthritis) pain and stiffness. Glucosamine has been shown to have anti-inflammatory activity, and unlike NSAIDS and corticosteroids, glucosamine sulfate works to maintain joint health.
Each capsule contains:
Glucosamine Sulfate (as Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium Chloride Complex) - 225 mg.
Glucosamine sulfate is one of the best-known and safest ingredients for promoting joint health. It is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), including hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, an essential component of the cartilage matrix. Considerable animal research indicates glucosamine sulfate's effectiveness in maintaining joint health.
Vitamin C - 100 mg.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) enhances collagen formation and cartilage growth. Ascorbic acid has been shown to help maintain healthy cartilage.
DL-Phenylalanine - 75 mg.
DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is a component of the catecholamine neurotransmitter cascade, leading to increased levels of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, which can in turn increase levels of endorphins and enkephalins.
Curcumin Phytosome - 50 mg.
Curcumin is the orange pigment found in turmeric and is a potent antioxidant. Studies have show that curcium helps reduce inflammation and accompanying pain and also protects the gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidneys from damage.
Boswellia Serrata extract - 35 mg.
Boswellia serrata extract is a gum resin from a tree native to India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. Animal studies have demonstrated Boswellia helps maintain a normal inflammatory response.
Bromelain - 35 mg.
Bromelain stimulates fribrinolytic activity and inhibits thromboxane A2, which also helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response. Bromelain is a enzyme found in pineapples and helps to reduce swelling and inflammation.
