Joints / Bones / Muscles
Youth and vitality depend to a large extent on the good condition of joints and bones. If you have healthy joints, you can move without problems. On the other hand limited movement is a sign of aging and weakness.Is accompanied by unpleasant pain. The joints work together with the cartilage. Increasing age or injuries can disrupt the joints and lead to arthritis.
Our bones are also gradually changing and transforming - in youth, the volume of bone mass gradually increases and peaks around the age of 30. Even then, this process still continues, but gradually we lose more bone mass than we gain.
Formation of osteoporosis depends on how much bone you have around 30 and how quickly you start to lose it with age. However, every part of the body can be strengthened with proper nutrition. These substances are guaranteed to help keep your joints and bones healthy:
- Glucosamine - The body naturally makes it from glucose and the amino acid Glutamine. Glucosamine helps to heal cartilage and other tissues and reduces inflammation.
- Chondroitin - Occurs in cartilage and is partly responsible for its elasticity. An important role of Chondroitin is to prevent enzymes from working that could damage cartilage. Together with Glucosamine, they prevent cartilage death.
- MSM - Represents a significant source of organic sulfur (34%), which supports the formation of important nutrients, including the amino acids glutathione, cysteine and methionine.
- Calcium and Vitamin D - Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body.
Energy for active muscles
- BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) - Due to their anti-catabolic and anabolic properties, they are an important part of muscle and a key element in the breakdown of proteins. BCAAs make up 35 % of muscle mass and are involved in energy production in working muscles. They accelerate protein synthesis and protect muscle proteins from the loss of muscle mass during sports and physical activity.
- Glutamine - Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that makes up 60 % of the free amino acids in muscle cells, where it is the main source of nitrogen. In states of intense physical exertion and stress, it becomes conditionally essential. Glutamine protects muscle proteins from post-workout catabolism and supports muscle tissue regeneration.
