The building block for ligaments, tendons, fluids in the joints, digestive and respiratory tract membranes, heart valves, eyes, hoof, skin and bone. It provides 50% of the structure of chondroitin sulfate, as well as keratin and dermatan sulfates by readily connecting to galactosamine. These components then combine with protein and hyaluronate in the cartilage to form proteoglycans which lubricate and protect the surface of the cartilage. Vita Stress prefers Glucosamine HCL (hydrochloride) over Glucosamine sulfate because the HCL has a higher concentrate of Glucosamine.
For general use, MSM should be taken internally as a food supplement. MSM (the beauty mineral) is necessary for collagen synthesis in skin, hair and hoof. MSM softens tissue, relieves stress, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation, reduces muscle cramps and back pain, permits muscles to heal, increases energy, mental calmness and improves the ability to concentrate. MSM scavenges free radicals and helps the liver produce choline, coats the intestinal tract so parasites lose the ability to hang on, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases the body’s ability to produce insulin and is important for carbohydrate metabolism and speeds wound healing.
