What is Turmeric & Glucosamine Joint Care?
Turmeric & Glucosamine Joint Care is a unique formulation exclusive to Protein Works that combines high strength Turmeric Extract, Glucosamine, Vitamin C and Vitamin D3. Turmeric has a long tradition of use in holistic medicine known as Ayurveda and is being extensively studied in more recent times for anti-inflammatory properties and aiding digestion. The majority of Glucosamine being sold by other brands is from shellfish but we’ve gone the extra mile and sourced a glucosamine fermented from corn to ensure this supplement is vegan suitable. We’ve also added Vitamin C and Vitamin D3 which contribute to collagen formation and maintenance of the normal function of joints, bones, muscle and cartilage. Turmeric & Glucosamine Joint Care is the perfect support for an active lifestyle.
What are the benefits of Turmeric & Glucosamine Joint Care?
Glucosamine is a natural compound present in the human body, where it plays a role with the proteins constituting the joints and the cartilage. As we get older, our body produces less and less glucosamine, and unfortunately it cannot be sourced in our diet. With ageing, our cartilage can become less flexible and a decrease in the levels of glucosamine can leave our joints more vulnerable to the potential for damage. Our glucosamine comes for a vegan suitable source and is completely 100% animal free.
Turmeric is an ingredient which has been used for hundred years as a spice in India and also in traditional Indian medicine. Curcumin is the active compound found in turmeric and is being studied extensively for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Vitamin C is involved in collagen production, which is an essential protein which helps to protect our bones, joints and keep cartilage healthy. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant which means it helps counteract cell damage caused by environmental factors, such as pollutants and poor diet.
Vitamin D3, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is a fat-soluble vitamin predominantly synthesised in the skin by the sun. Vitamin D3 is also sourced in very few foods such as oily fish, milk and eggs, therefore, meeting your daily requirements through diet can be tough. We added Vitamin D3 to help with absorption of calcium, essential to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function.
