Joint Repair Complex
D-Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfate, and MSM are three common joint support ingredients that work together to help overall joint health.
KollaGen II-xs Collagen Type II - This ingredient is effectively dosed at 2 grams, one of the biggest doses you will find. Collagen is a component of joint cartilage that, when used as a supplement, can improve joint health.
L-Proline - This is a non-essential amino acid that's a component of collagen and therefore plays an important role in joint health and function.
Hyaluronic Acid - Joint Defender utilizes an effective dose of this ingredient which is a component of the synovial fluid that surrounds and lubricates the joints. This is common in skin care products when it should be more common in joint health products.
Cats Claw Powder - This is a popular herb with an extended history of traditional use for various ailments such as joint health, digestive problems and whole body vascular health
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) - Curcumin is being recognized and used worldwide in many different forms for multiple potential health benefits including joint health
Bioperine Black Pepper Extract is a popular absorption enhancing ingredient which supports improved absorption of the nutrients in Joint Defender.
