A DETAILED LOOK
Structure: Collagen is the main structural protein that creates a mesh framework that holds the body’s tissues together. Collagen production is enhanced by Vitamin C, which also holds the fibers of collagen together and provides antioxidant benefits. Likewise, MSM contains a bioactive form of Sulphur that creates strong bonds in connective tissue.
Hydration: Moisture is critical to joints because for both lubrication of the joints in the form of synovial fluid – much like motor oil lubricates an engine – and for cushioning as we move throughout daily life – much like the shocks on a car. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is responsible for drawing water molecules into the joint. Glucosamine and chondroitin work in conjunction with HA to form a gel-like “goo” that pads the joints.
Antioxidants: Free radicals are wrecking balls that bounce around the body and cause tissue degradation, resulting in pain and inflammation of the tissues. Antioxidants are nature’s way of neutralizing the destruction free radicals. Each antioxidant contains unique compounds that target different tissues and pathways within the body. An important distinction with antioxidant-containing herbs is the form and concentration of the active components. Ground powders are not condensed and bulky substances like fiber and cellulose remain. Extracts concentrate the value of the herbs by removing inactive components of the plant, resulting in a more powerful bioactivity in the body. For example, turmeric can be a seasoning used in cooking as a powdered root, but when curcumin is extracted it forms a highly effective supplement. The Move Matrix Blend™ contains multiple antioxidants in the form of supplement-grade extracts.
