What is Resveratrol? Resveratrol is a naturally-existing substance found in the skin of grapes and in the Japanese knotweed plant. It is a polyphenol of the class flavonoid, also referred to as an antioxidant. In studies, resveratrol has activated the "SIRT1" gene. When activated, the SIRT1 gene increases lifespan, causes healthy weight control, prevents Alzheimer's disease, liver conditions, cancer, leukemia, arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, bladder & kidney infections, fungus, and more. Our resveratrol capsules are guaranteed to contain 200mg of pure 100% trans-resveratrol (biologically active) which has been processed with the utmost care (freeze-dried) to preserve potency and freshness.

What is Quercetin? Quercetin, a highly potent anti-oxidant flavonoid, is extracted from fruits and vegetables. Click here to find references by the JAMA, AMA, Oxford Journals, Biochem Pharmacol, UCLA, and others describing how quercetin kills HeLa cells (cancer cells) and helps the body's immune system to fight bacterial and viral infections, fungus, allergies (including asthma), kidney and bladder conditions.
What is Bromelain? Bromelain is a natural digestive agent which causes the body to absorb far more vitamins & minerals from ingested nutrients than without it. Bromelain has many other benefits. Click here to read about how bromelain acts as an anti-inflammatory, helps wounds heal faster, reduces or eliminates pain, helps prevent strokes, and reduces blood pressure.
What is Glucosamine? Glucosamine helps to maintain joint health. It can also restore damaged joints by promoting faster regrowth of cartilage (cushion), thus preventing a bone-on-bone situation which usually requires surgical joint replacement. Glucosamine is a compound found naturally in the body, made from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is needed to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues. Production of glucosamine slows with age, causing loss of cartilege between joints, sometimes leading to a bone-on-bone condition requiring surgical joint replacement.
Why do I need chondroitin and MSM along with glucosamine?
Two large studies that evaluated data from about a dozen studies showed significant improvement in pain and inflammation and improved joint function. Some people taking chondroitin are able to decrease NSAID dosage.
MSM: Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring sulfur compound containing sulfur and methyl groups. It is found in the normal diets of humans and almost all other animals. MSM is made up of 34% sulfur, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body.
MSM has shown benefits for a range of health problems including arthritis, muscle and joint pain. MSM has shown promise in the inhibition of pain impulses along nerve fibers, (analgesia), lessening of inflammation, increasing blood supply, reducing muscle spasms, and softening of scar tissue. MSM supports healthy, active lifestyles and benefits multiple structures and functions within the body, including connective tissues and the respiratory system while the methyl groups support energy production.
