Naturalcare’s Joint Armour Plus (New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Powder combined with MSM) is a powerhouse nutritional combination in a convenient, ready mixed package. Its function is to supply nutrition to support the health, wellbeing, maintenance whilst encouraging tissue repair.
What ‘s In it and Why?
•New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel Powder is known to assist with the support joint health in horses and dogs, and may help to “lubricate” and allay the symptoms of sore and stiff joints. It works by supplying the body with the necessary building blocks to aid in the nutrition of cartilage, synovial fluid and connective tissue. New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel Powder has traditionally been used to support health and wellbeing of joints and is harvested from the clean waters of New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds. For Green-Lipped Mussel powder to be potent, it’s important that it is harvested properly, immediately and expertly processed, without the use of heat application such as steaming the mussels open, which destroys the integrity of the valuable nutrients.
•MSM Powder (METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE). MSM is included in many a wellbeing formulation and for good reason. MSM is primarily a highly absorbable, natural form of Sulphur that the body can easily utilise and assimilate. MSM is an important nutritional precursor, required by the body to create Collagen and Keratin, a must for healthy connective tissue. In particularly, beneficial for the nutritional integrity of tendons, ligaments, skin, hair gut and lung lining (in the case of allergies). Another of its most significant uses as a supplement is its demonstrated ability to relieve pain and inflammation. When rigid fibrous tissue cells swell and become inflamed, pressure and pain result. Since MSM can restore flexibility and permeability to cell walls, fluids can pass through the tissues more easily. This helps equalise pressure and reduce or eliminate the cause of pain. Harmful substances such as lactic acid and toxins are allowed to flow out, while nutrients are permitted to flow in. This prevents the pressure build up in cells that causes inflammation
Naturalcare Joint Armour PLUS is an all natural, convenient nutritional supplement, when added to food daily, increases wellbeing whilst helping your equine or canine companion moving more freely again.
