Joint Repair Complex

D-Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfate, and MSM are three common joint support ingredients that work together to help overall joint health.(1,2,3)

KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II - This ingredient is effectively dosed at 2 grams, one of the biggest doses you will find. Collagen is a component of joint cartilage that, when used as a supplement, can improve joint health.(4)

L-Proline – This is a non-essential amino acid that’s a component of collagen and therefore plays an important role in joint health and function.(5)

Hyaluronic Acid – Joint Defender utilizes an effective dose of this ingredient which is a component of the synovial fluid that surrounds and lubricates the joints. This is common in skin care products when it should be more common in joint health products.(6)

Cats Claw Powder – This is a popular herb with an extended history of traditional use for various ailments such as joint health, digestive problems and whole body vascular health.(7)

Masson Pine Extract – This ingredient promotes increased blood flow which may, in turn, improve nutrient delivery.

Bioperine® Black Pepper Extract is a popular absorption enhancing ingredient which supports improved absorption of the nutrients in Joint Defender.

Joint and Muscle Post-Exercise Inflammation Complex

Dimagnesium Malate – This compound is a blend of Magnesium and Malic Acid. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for bodybuilders because, beyond its use for joint health, it’s also involved in nerve transmission and muscle contraction.(8)

 

KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II – This is a patented, advanced Collagen that is the result of continuous, innovative research and is designed to help reduce pain as well as increase joint mobility.

Bioperine® Black Pepper Extract – This popular compound improves the absorption and utilization of the nutrients it is paired with.
