One of the biggest concerns of athletes and people who are approaching the later stages of life is maintaining healthy joints. Having healthy joints is something people often take for granted, but when their joints get injured or overexerted, the pain and disability can be significant.
Infinite Labs created its Joint Support supplement to protect people’s joints from the natural wear and tear of aging as well as the stress of high-impact athletic performance.
Glucosamine Sulfate Glucosamine sulfate is actually produced naturally and is found in people’s joints. In dietary supplement form, glucosamine sulfate is often produced in laboratories. Research states that this chemical is “likely effective” for treating osteoarthritis and for relieving pain of joint breakdown. In addition, the chemical is as effective at reducing joint pain as most over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol, NSAIDs, Advil and others. However, it’s important to note glucosamine sulfate isn’t approved by the Food and Drug Administration for medical use in humans, and there are no completed clinical trials that support evidence it is effective at reducing joint pain or swelling or promoting joint health.
Methysulfonylmethane (MSM) MSM is a natural chemical present in almost all living organisms, including plants, animals and humans. Like glucosamine sulfate, it can also be made in laboratories. WebMD reports MSM is “possibly effective” at treating the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee, including pain and increasing range of motion. The chemical is also likely to be effective at reducing physical stress and damage brought on by exercise. In addition, MSM may have anti-inflammatory effects, which would make it beneficial for helping to repair stressed or torn tissues in the joints and ligaments.
White Willow Bark Extract The third major ingredient in Joint Support is white willow bark, which has a similar mechanism as aspirin in helping to reduce pain. That’s because a chemical inside the plant called salicin is chemically similar to the composition of aspirin. According to WebMD, willow bark is possibly effective for treating lower back pain. However, it goes on to state there is insufficient evidence it treats osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain. While some people may experience relief from those conditions by consuming white willow bark, more studies are needed to determine if it is truly effective at treating joint and bone-related conditions.
Ginger Root Extract Ginger root extract is similar to white willow bark extract, as both are plants which contain chemicals used to treat a variety of health conditions, including arthritis, muscle soreness and joint pain. Ginger root extract is possibly effective for treating arthritis since research shows ginger can reduce pain in people who have the condition. Other studies show the plant has similar effectiveness in reducing pain as medications like ibuprofen.
