How it works
The ingredients in Blackmores Joint Formula with Glucosamine and
Chondroitin are important for the maintenance of healthy cartilage and bone.
Osteoarthritis is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of
cartilage. As we get older the ??ear and tear??effects of everyday life may
cause degenerative changes in the cartilage, making it more susceptible to
breakdown and damage. Ageing decreases the ability to restore and synthesize
Glucosamine is a natural component of the cartilage
matrix and synovial fluid. It is a major building block of the substances
that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These
structural units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity,
resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary
glucosamine can be an important source of this vital component of cartilage
as we age, supporting normal cartilage function and joint mobility.
Chondroitin, like glucosamine, is a natural component of
cartilage. Chondroitin and glucosamine appear to work together in the
synthesis of cartilage. Chondroitin is also involved in the lubrication and
nutrition of the joint, and helps the joints to resist compression.
Manganese and boron are minerals which
appear to play important roles in joint health. Manganese supports the
production of cartilage and bone. Boron plays a role in the chemical make-up
of bones and joints.
