A New Formula is Created

We went to our world-renowned formulator and asked him to analyze the problems of taking care of your joints. We asked him to design a safe, all-natural product to help people, beyond what ordinary joint products were offering.

It took months of concentrated effort by his entire team to assess all the contributing factors. Then, one day not long ago, he called and said three words -- "I've got it!" He had designed an advanced formula, unmatched by anything on the market today. This formula was christened JOINT ADVANCE. We're proud to introduce it to you.

Here's what's you'll get in every tablet:

Glucosamine Complex 1500 mg

Glucosamine is a form of amino sugar that our bodies naturally manufacture. It is considered one of the major building blocks for joint protection. It is usually found in conjunction with Chondroitin Sulfate, and is widely used.

Chondroitin Sulfate 1200 mg

Chondroitin Sulfate is also naturally found in the body. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons states, "It (chondroitin) prevents other body enzymes from degrading the building blocks of joint cartilage."

MSM 900 mg

MSM is a short term for a really long chemical name: methylsulfonylmethane,
(METH-il-sul-FON-il-METH-ane.) MSM provides sulfur, which is a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails. It also supports the production of energy. It is abundantly available in a normal diet, and is found in meat, eggs, milk and other dairy products. Consequently, we don't usually need MSM to correct a dietary deficiency, but for the other things it does. It helps normal re-building of connective tissue.

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 90 mg

Vitamin C deficiency is common in people who don't eat enough fruits and vegetables. It is often characterized by skin that bruises easily, (cutaneous hemorrhages).

The American Journal of Public Health 2004, published results of a study,
titled, "Vitamin C Deficiency and Depletion in the United States: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988 to 1994" (Am J Public Health. 2004 May; 94(5): 870-875.)
The study was conducted by Jeffrey S Hampl, PhD, RD, Christopher A. Taylor, PhD, RD, and Carol S. Johnston, PhD, RD.

The researchers concluded, "...our data indicate that a considerable number of children and adults in the United States are vitamin C deficient or depleted. Health professionals should continue to recommend consumption of vegetables and fruits, especially those that are rich in Vitamin C. In addition, vitamin C supplementation should be discussed with all patients, but especially those who are at the greatest risk of vitamin C deficiency: cigarette smokers and poor eaters."

Ginger Root 100 mg

Ginger is an herb with many benefits. It is most commonly used for nausea and to help digestion. It is known to stimulate the secretion of bile, and helps the liver remove toxins.

White Willow Bark 100 mg

Historical records indicate people have been using willow bark since the time of Hippocrates in 400 B.C. It is used to ease discomfort.

It was not until 1829 when scientists in Europe were able to identify the active ingredient in willow bark. They named it salicin.
