MegaFlex is a high potency formula designed to support connective tissue for flexible, healthy joints and ease of movement. Glucosamine sulfate is a necessary component of the body's ability to create synovial fluid - the fluid that cushions joints - and an important nutrient to heal cartilage and improve joint functioning. Research has shown that glucosamine sulfate has a low molecular weight which means that it may easily be absorbed by the body and circulated through the blood system to joints.
MSM, is a natural compound found in fresh foods and is an excellent source of bioavailable sulfur that is readily absorbed by the body, being incorporated into critical sulfur-containing amino acids, cyteine and methionine. MSM reduces inflammation and has been found to be critical to proper muscle and joint functioning. The formulation also includes vitamin C which assists in MSM absorption.
Sea Cucumber is a creature living in salt water that contains many mucopolysaccharides, including chondroitin sulfate which also has been found to be helpful in supporting joint health.
