Joint Supplement - A blend of quality ingredients that aid the joints, cartilage and connective tissues
dac® Optimum Flex Plus is a blend of quality ingredients that aid the nourishment of joints, cartilage and connective tissues.
Glucosamine HCl - is required by the body for the synthesis of an important family of macromolecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These GAGs make up many body tissues including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The lack of glucosamine in the joints may lead to specific tissue weakness. As tissues in the joints become damaged, the lubricating synovial fluid in the joint spaces becomes thin and watery. Therefore the normal cushioning effect within the joint is lost leaving the bones and cartilage to grind against each other inside the joint space.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - is a source of bio-available sulfur. Sulfur plays a critical role in the synthesis of connective tissues, hormones and essential amino acids.
Chondroitin Sulfate – is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) that provides structural components to the articular cartilage matrix and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints.
Sodium Hyaluronate - is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) that provides structural components to the synovial fluid and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints. It functions as a tissue lubricant and is thought to play an important role in modulating the interactions between adjacent tissues.
Vitamin C - Vitamin C is considered an effective antioxidant necessary for health.
