How Jointrex Works

Jointrex dietary supplement contains a blend of Chicken Collagen II, (Extracted in pure form from Chicken Sternal Cartilage), Chndroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine Sulfate, Hyaluronic Acid (HCA), MSM (Lignisul), Vitamin C, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, and Boron.

Jointrex is a scientifically advanced joint suppport formula that works.

Jointrex has been developed using the latest technology in nutritional sciences and contains a comprehensive blend of high-quality ingredients synergistically formulated to provide maximum support to the joints and connective tissue, including Chicken Sternal Cartilage II which is the purest form of chicken sternal cartilage containing high levels of highly-absorbable Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate.

A unique component of Jointrex which works together with Chicken Collegen, Chondroitin and Glucosamine in Jointrex is Hyaluronic Acid.

ABC NEW SPECIAL REPORT

A special report by ABC News featured a village in Japan and hyaluronic acid entitled, “The Village of Long Life: Could Hyaluronic Acid Be an Anti-Aging Remedy?” If you missed this report, here’s the information you need to know about hyaluronic acid and what it can do to supplement your body’s machinery.

Hyaluronic acid has been nicknamed the “key to the fountain of youth” because it has been noted that at least some people who ingest a lot of it in their diets tend to live to ripe old ages.

In the village of Yuzuri Hara, two hours outside of Tokyo, 10 percent of the population is 85 or older—10 times the American norm. The residents of Yuzuri Hara are not only living longer, but they are also quite healthy. Rarely do they have any reason to see a doctor, and they are hardly affected by disease like cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Many have even managed to keep their skin from showing signs of aging—even after a lifetime of working in the fields under the sun. What makes the residents of Yuzuri Hara more remarkable is that they are living long, healthy lives, including those who smoke a pack of cigarettes a day and practice other unhealthy activities. Local doctors believe locally grown starches help stimulate the body’s natural creation of hyaluronic acid, which aging bodies typically lose. This may ward off the aging process by helping the cells of the body thrive and retain moisture, keeping joints lubricated, protecting the retina in eyes and keeping skin smooth and elastic.



What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
The term “acid” can be confusing. Hyaluronic acid is a special protein occurring naturally throughout the human body. It is a key component of connective tissue and, in particular, collagen. Also known as hyaluronan, hyaluronic acid’s main role is cushioning and lubricating connective tissue by binding to water. Since it is one of the most hydrophilic (“water-loving”) molecules in nature, hyaluronic acid is often described as “nature’s moisturizer.” It also helps maintain smooth, elastic skin because it effectively holds water in the skin. In the United States, hyaluronic acid has been used for years in eye surgery as a shock absorber to protect the retina, and has been proven effective in lubricating arthritic joints.

Your body is made up of so many networks of connective tissues that it needs a vast supply of hyaluronic acid to keep all of your moveable parts, well, moving. In fact, connective tissue is so vital to life and your body’s mechanics that people with hereditary connective tissue disorders experience a variety of serious health problems that can entail their skin, joints, hearts, eyes and bones.

Proteins are the most abundant macromolecules in living cells, occurring in all cells and all parts of cells. Most remarkable is the fact that cells can produce proteins that have strikingly different properties and activities by joining the same standard 20 amino acids in many different combinations and sequences.

Hyaluronic acid is one example of a highly - specialized protein manufactured by the body to bind to water and lubricate your joints, muscles, skin, eyes, and any area of the body that contains connective tissues.

The 101 on Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant and important structural molecule of bones, skin, blood vessel walls and all other organs. It’s not limited to one or two areas in the body. Much of the human body is built of the protein collagen, as it accounts for more than 60-percent of the protein in bone and cartilage, and provides 50-to 90-percent of the dry weight of skin, ligaments, tendons, and the dentine of teeth. Collagen is everywhere in your body—it’s in your eyes, blood vessel linings, basement membranes, and connective tissue.

The ability of your body to build and repair collagen is so crucial to your health that defects in collagen lead to a variety of medical problems, including osteoporosis and aortic aneurysms.1

Collagen fibers exist in your lower skin, or dermis. They help keep your skin tight and firm. Despite what the cosmetic industry would have you believe you can’t rub collagen on your skin to increase its abundance. Topical collagen makes skin soft and may have some short-term firming capabilities, but it’s powerless to help build collagen fibers from within your skin. The only way to ensure that you get the collagen supply you need is to make sure your body has all the ingredients it needs to produce collagen. And hyaluronic acid acts as a binding and protective agent to the ground substance of connective tissue, namely collagen. In other words, if you have a good supply of HA in your body, you’ll have an essential ingredient to healthy, normal collagen. HA works synergistically with Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II to support the bodies connective tissue and joints.

Jointrex is a rich, high-quality and economical source of high-grade Hyaluronic-Acid and Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II.

The Scientific Studies

In many instances, the value of a particular nutritional ingredient is most apparent when we see the results of its absence or deficiency in our diet.

For example, for years the value of Vitamin C supplementation was disputed by medical professionals. However, it is now scientifically proven that fatal diseases like SCURVY arise in people who have Vitamin C deficiencies and that simply taken daily Vitamin C tablets can eliminate SCURVY completely.

Let's take a look at what happens to people who exhibit hyaluronic acid abnomalities.

People with connective tissue disorders and related features all seem to have abnormalities of hyaluronic acid, thus establishing the true importance of HA in maintaining the health and wellness of connective tissues. The following illnesses are linked to HA deficiencies2:

• Ehlers-Danlos syndrome;

• Marfan syndrome;

• Osteogenesis imperfecta; and

• Stickler syndrome.

You may not be familiar with these unusual syndromes, but all of the above are connective tissue disorders.

You may, however, be familiar with some of the following problems that both human and animal studies have shown to

occur in people with hyaluronic acid abnormalities:

• Heart valves with MVP (mitral valve prolapse)

• TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorder)

• Joint instability

• Osteoarthritis

• Detached retinas

• Muscle contractures

• Rachitic skeletal features (pectus excavatum, pectus carnitum, scoliosis, bowed limbs, hypermobility, etc.)

• Glaucoma

• Keratoconus

• Poor scar formation (fetuses do not scar because of the high content of HA in amniotic fluid)

• Acrogeria (prematurely wrinkled skin)

• Fibromyalgia

• Premature aging syndromes (which share many features with connective tissue disorders, especially Ehlers-Danlos)

Hyaluronic acid is currently in use (and under advance study) for preventing, treating, or aiding in the surgical repair for many types of problems people have with connective tissue disorders. Given this list (above) of problems linked to HA abnormalities, it’s no surprise to see HA in use for the following:

• Fractures

• Hernias

• Glaucoma

• Keratoconus

• Detached retinas

• Osteoarthritis (HA injections are the new breakthrough treatment for this condition)3

• Muscle contractures

• TMJ

• Scarring prevention

• Vocal cord insufficiency

• Wrinkled skin

• Cartilage damage

• Wound healing

• Ligament Healing

If you’ve ever suffered from any of the above ailments, you have to wonder, are you getting enough HA in your diet or produced by your body? Many of the above ailments are related to aging, so just about everyone can expect to experience one of these at some point.

HA and Your Diet and Environment

Genes do play a role in your body’s ability to manufacture HA. But there are nutritional and environmental factors that are known to have an impact and that may, in fact, play a greater role in the body’s HA levels. In particular, magnesium and zinc deficiencies are known to be associated with many of the same symptoms connected with hyaluronic acid abnormalities, such as mitral valve prolapse and poor wound healing. Scientists have suggested that a zinc or magnesium deficiency contributes to the hyaluronic acid abnormality, which in turn causes the symptom.

Many studies have shown how environmental factors like consumption levels of magnesium and zinc affect one’s hyaluronic acid levels 4,5. These studies have all arrived at similar conclusions: A change in diet—especially a change in how much magnesium and zinc is consumed—directly affects levels of HA, which then affects levels of collagen. How does this happen?

Magnesium is needed for hyaluronic acid synthesis and a lack of that magnesium is one of the factors in some connective tissue disorders. As a result, magnesium supplementation is an established treatment for many of the symptoms of connective tissue disorders.

JOINTREX contains 400 mg daily of Magnesium to facilitate proper Hyaluronic Acid uptake in your body.

Environmental factors such as what you eat, how much you eat, and generally how well you live, have been show in studies to affect levels of HA in the body. In a study of rats, hyaluronic acid turnover and metabolism were affected by age, dietary composition, and caloric intake.6 In human studies, researchers have demonstrated that hyaluronic acid levels can be altered by physical activity, food ingestion and supplementing the diet with Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II.

Diet and your environment are more likely to directly affect your body’s HA production and activity than genes alone. Do you know how much HA your body needs or can successfully produce? Probably not. In addition to your diet and environment having an impact on your HA, age does have its own impact.

Age is a natural factor that affects the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid. As we age, our body produces less and less HA and it is very difficult to replenish unless you supplement with HA and Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II. If you’re not getting enough HA production through your diet, chances are your body will slowly respond as cartilage and other structures of your joints begin to weaken and break down. Without proper lubrication, the joints become stiff and movement is painful.

Good for Skin and Eyes

Collagen is part of your skin and eyes, too. People who cannot build and maintain healthy collagen have more than just problems with their joints—they have poor vision, prematurely wrinkled skin, a hard time getting their wounds to heal, and more. It is because collagen is so central to the body’s basic mechanisms and appearance that HA has been called a “fountain of youth.”

To imagine having poor joints, skin and eyes is to imagine very old age. Most revealing is that one of the defining characteristics of premature aging syndromes, such as Progeria, is hyaluronic acid abnormalities.

Daily Jointrex supplementation can help combat these symptoms.

Jointrex Formula with Hyaluronic Acid and Chicken Sternal Collagen II

By adding HA to your diet you can ensure that you’re getting the HA your body needs to run smoothly and recover quickly. Optimizing your HA levels may also help support treatments for many inherited connective tissue disorders, as well as stave off premature aging. HA also works with Chicken Sternal Collagen II to increase bioavailable benefits of Jointrex supplementation.

Because hyaluronic acid is being used commercially and experimentally to correct a large portion of the problems found in connective tissue disorders (such as fractures, eye disorders, poor wound healing and prematurely wrinkled skin), it’s logical to consider the possibility that hyaluronic acid works to correct these problems because defects or deficiencies of hyaluronic acid are what cause these problems in the first place.

Jointrex’s Hyaluronic Acid with Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II are just two Jointrex ingredients designed to nutritionally support joint function and maintain healthy cartilage tissue.

Athletes or physically active person needs to have a good supply of hyaluronic acid on hand to help keep the body moving freely and recovering from the tiny internal injuries that inevitably occur during a work-out or strenuous exercise. Trouble is, it’s impossible to know how well your body is keeping up with manufacturing quality HA for everyday use. Adding Jointrex with HYALURONIC ACID to your diet can deliver a high-quality form of this biomolecule, which your body already needs.

For those who don’t think they have a problem with joint fluids, there’s nothing wrong with having a little extra ingredients around for when your body gets deprived when you least expect it.

Can Jointrex help you, even if you are not experiencing joint problems now? Yes, it certainly can, especially in the long run. Taking Jointrex with HYALURONIC ACID may help prevent future joint damage by optimizing the body’s levels of hyaluronic acid despite its natural decline in production. It will also counteract the daily abuse to the joints, caused by a lack of viscosity in joint fluid. Few people in the United States can say they have extremely-healthy diets similar to those of small Eastern villages where local foods naturally introduce the ingredients the body needs to produce HA and other essential nutrients.

As we age, supplementation becomes important to longevity—especially given our Western lifestyles.

Jointrex with hyaluronic acid is formulated to help with several signs and realities of aging, such as fractures, eye disorders, poor wound healing and prematurely wrinkled skin. It’s non-toxic, all natural, and certified free of yeast, wheat, corn, milk, eggs, soy, glutens, sugar, starch, artificial color and preservatives.
