Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It causes pain, swelling and reduced motion in the joints. It occurs when cartilage (the slippery tissue that covers the end of bones) in the joints begins to break down. Healthy cartilage absorbs the shock of movement so when you lose cartilage, the joint provides less of a cushion effect and the bones begin to rub together. Over time, this rubbing can permanently damage the joint. Cartilage typically deteriorates with age, but may be advanced from environmental factors, like wear and tear from competitions.
What does Flex Fuel offer to help the body combat this process?
Vitamin C & E- antioxidants help to destroy free radicals that occur from cellular breakdown
MSM- helps neutralize the inflammation produced by tissue breakdown
Glucosamine- this is known as the "building block' of cartilage; the body uses glucosamine to improve the rate of rapid production
Hyaluronic Acid- improves synovial fluid production; this is the gel-like fluid that helps lubricate the joint and reduces friction.
