MSM

The MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane or dimethyl sulfone) is a sulphur containing molecule andsupports tissues such as tendons, ligaments and muscles.

 

It is a natural source of sulfur with strong anti-inflammatory properties.

 

MSM provides the sulfur in amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins while its end product is deposited in the collagen of joints and in the vessels. It is also part of the keratin, a substance that is essential for healthy hair and nails.

Despite this substance being vital to maintaining the proper structure and functioning of the body, levels of MSM decrease over time.  Latest surveys showed that the MSM helps in quick muscle recovery after exercise.

SUPER K with Advanced K2 Complex

sku: 1224 | Joints | 90 soft capsules
SUPER K with Advanced K2 Complex

Numerous clinical trials confirm that vitamin K plays a vital role in maintaining healthy bone structure since it facilitates the transfer of calcium from the bloodstream to the bones.  Vitamin K is also essential for regulating proteins that depend on calcium in the arteries. When there is a deficiency of vitamin K calcium circulating in the blood may cling to the artery walls leading to arteriosclerosis.

People of an advanced ageare at a greater need for vitamin K as even a small decrease in itslevels can pose risks to the vascular system.  In addition, the lack of vitamin K can lead to increased levels of undercarboxylated osteocalcin a process that has been associated with decreasing bone mass in women after menopause.

Humans receive most of their vitamin Kfrom green vegetables in the form of Vitamin K1. The problem is that K1 is tightly bound to plant fiber and onlya small fraction of it is absorbed bythe blood. Vitamin K2 is found in meat, eggs and dairy, while it is also made by friendly bacteria in the gut. Studies have shown that vitamin K2 has up to ten times higher bioavailability than K1.  K1 for exampleis metabolized by the liver within eight hours of intake, whereas measurable levels of K2 can still be found even 72 hours after intake.

Latest surveys have shown that the types of MK-4 and MK-7 of vitamin K2 are the most effective and can be immediately absorbed by the body.  MK-7 remains bioavailable in the body for a longer time, while the MK-4 causes an immediate increase of vitamin Kin the blood. Vitamin K1 is found in vegetables and is necessary for the body but even more important is the provision of the two types of K2. Life Extension’s Super K formula provides the necessary amount of Vitamin K1 and types MK-4 and MK-7 of vitamin K2 with only one capsule daily.  The advantage of this formula is that it provides optimal levels MK-7 that is sufficient over a for 24 hours period for our body.

BIO-COLLAGEN with Patented UC-II®

sku: 1631 | Joints | 60 capsules
BIO-COLLAGEN with Patented UC-II®

Pain and tenderness in the joints can limit daily activities. With age there is a continued strain on joints compromising joint cartilage and revealing small collagen fibers.  The body's immune system mistakenly identifies these collagen fibers as ‘foreign cells’ triggering an inflammatory reaction of the collagen contained in the cartilage of the joints. An inflammation soon develops and joint discomfort soon follows.

Bio-collagen with UC-II ® is a novel form of an undenatured type II collagen derived from chicken cartilage that provides targeted support for the immune- system issues associated with joint discomfort. The UC-II ® travels into the intestinal tract introducing to the immune system the same type of collagen molecules that are found in joint cartilage.  Normally when chicken cartilage is processed its molecular shape changes and as a result it loses its bioactivity and becomes denatured. Researchers have found that this has no beneficial effect on the immune system.  Fortunately a unique processing technique preserves the correct molecular shape of collagen which retains its bioactivity and produces a format known as undenatured collagen.

Scientific studies have shown that the UC-II ® helps in the normal functioning of the joints.

ARTHROMAX® Advanced with UC-II® &AprèsFlex®

As people age joints start to develop problems like stiffness and aches restricting movement and activity. ArthroMax ® advanced with UC-II ® andAprèsFlex ® is a multi-nutrient for joint health providing better support to joints with two innovative ingredients: the AprèsFlex ® and UC-II ®.

The AprèsFlex ® is from the extract Boswellia serrata .Boswellia has the ability to assist in inhibiting inflammatory factors and is highly effective in inhibiting 5-LOX enzyme (5-Lipoxygenase).Excessive activity of 5-LOX results in the accumulation of leukotriene B4 which is a pro-inflammatory compound. Boswellia directly binds the enzyme 5-LOX, preventing the production of pro-inflammatory leukotrienes.

AprèsFlex ® Boswellia is absorbed bythe  blood 52% better than other available forms of Boswellia.

Apart from the AprèsFlex ®, ArthroMax ® formula contains collagen from chicken cartilage called UC-II ®. Scientific data show that contributes to the normal functioning of the joints.
