Advanced intervertebral disc support formula, promoting healthy composition, strength, flexibility, and comfort*
This formula addresses the unique nutritional needs of intervertebral cartilage (IVC). IVC is avascular, wears differently, and is affected by different nutritional factors compared to articular cartilage. The basics of healthy disc composition involve glucosamine, chondroitin, and collagen. Studies indicate that glucosamine supports spinal disc integrity and has the potential to support the strength of the disc under compressive loads. In postmenopausal women, the healthy composition of the lumbar spine is directly related to collagen content. The advanced nature of this product involves its ability to maintain healthy advanced glycation end product activity, healthy immune mediator activity, and healthy calcium metabolism. Advanced glycation end products may reduce the ability of the intervertebral disc to produce proteoglycans, which comprise a healthy disc matrix.
The age-related increase in advanced glycation end products may also contribute to the stiffening of the spine. l-Carnosine, alpha lipoic acid and grape seed extract help to maintain healthy advanced glycation end product metabolism and provide antioxidant protection. Cartilage end plate calcification also affects disc function and longevity. Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 maintains a healthy balance of calcium uptake into extra-skeletal tissues. Vitamin D is a synergist with vitamin K2 to help maintain healthy cartilage endplate calcium metabolism. Devil’s claw supports day to day spinal comfort*
