Nutra Life Joint Care Capsules provides a scientifically based combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulphates, with supporting nutrients including copper, manganese, zinc and selenium. As part of the ageing process, the body's level of these nutrients can decline, resulting in joint problems including reduced mobility, pain and inflammation and increasing the need for supplementation. When taken regularly and in the correct dosage, glucosamine and chondroitin can help to improve mobility and joint lubrication, alleviate pain and help repair joint damage.
The ageing body requires glycosoaminoglycans and proteoglycans to maintain cartilage and connective tissues, especially as the body's joints, tendons, ligaments and cartilage come under strain.
Nutra-Life Joint Care supplies these nutrients in a supplement form, which reduces the need for the body to provide them from biosynthesis. Joint Care is a convenient and cost effective way to provide the important nutrients which help maintain joint cartilage and the connective tissues needed for joint health and mobility.

Q Why can joint discomfort and stiffness happen with age or injury?
A Joint discomfort is often due to joint cartilage breaking down. Cartilage – the protective shock absorber between the joints – acts as a smooth, weight-bearing surface. It cushions the joint, allowing bones to slip freely over each other; which provides the easy mobility that many people take for granted. Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Sulfur are compounds that occur naturally in the body, which act as nutritional “building blocks” for healthy joints, cartilage and tendons. Unfortunately, with age or significant wear and tear, the body’s ability to produce these compounds can decline. This can lead to joint cartilage thinning and becoming brittle or inflamed, which can then create joint discomfort and mobility issues.
Q How can supplementing with Glucosamine sulfate and Chondroitin help?
A Joint cartilage is constantly being worn away and rebuilt again using the body’s natural stores of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Sulfur as building blocks. Supplementing can help to “restock” the store levels, which then helps the body to rebuild the damaged, worn cartilage; thus assisting with joint problems. Taking a combination of Glucosamine sulfate and Chondroitin is thought to be more effective than Glucosamine alone.
Q How long should customers continue to take this product?
A Nutra-Life Joint Care provides nutritional building blocks that support the body in rebuilding cartilage. This means the length of time that it takes an individual to notice any benefit will depend upon the health of their cartilage when they begin taking it. Many customers experience benefits after 2 weeks of taking Nutra-Life Joint Care daily, but some may require up to 12 weeks.
Generally speaking, customers can begin taking a smaller dose once they notice improvements. However, they should be aware that their body is constantly replacing cartilage. If their symptoms return, therefore, they may benefit from long-term supplementation.
