Joint-Rx from Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals contains three main active ingredients: crystalline glucosamine Hcl, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate (LMW). The substances ensure that new cartilage is built in the joint and ligaments and cartilage are strengthened in the tendons. Chondroitin sulfate helps to improve the absorption of all substances.
Combined with other important ingredients Curcuma longa extract, Boswellia serrata extract, Nexrutine® (patented form of Phellodendron amurense extracts), Humulus lupulus and S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe), Joint-Rx helps support joint mobility in everyday life, alleviates joint problems and relieves inflammation.
- Crystalline Glucosamine HCL helps improve the structural integrity of joints. Glucosamine stimulates the formation of cartilage-producing cells (chondrocytes), which help build new cartilage.
- Chondroitin provides the structural components of articular cartilage and facilitates the entry of glucosamine into the joints.
- MSM is also part of Joint-Rx to help strengthen the connective tissue in tendons and cartilage. All three of these important joint-supporting ingredients are harmful compounds that must be included in order to be a truly effective joint health product.
- Curcumin (the active ingredient in the spice turmeric) provides immediate relief from joint pain by helping to reduce inflammation.
- Boswellia serrata (the active ingredient is boswellic acid) interferes with the inflammatory cascade reaction produced by the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase.
- Nexrutine is a selective COX-2 enzyme inhibitor, meaning that while it targets the COX-2 enzyme, it lags behind the beneficial COX-1 enzyme. Nexrutine® actually inhibits the production of the COX-2 enzyme, effectively stopping the inflammatory problem at its source.
