Joint Assets: The Advantage of 4®
One of the first places we feel our age is in our joints: stiffness, soreness, or loss of flexibility. Joint problems generally develop over time and can make it harder to enjoy your favorite activities. You already know the power of exercise to boost metabolism and strengthen the surrounding muscles to help stabilize and protect your joints. And that's just the beginning.
Worth the Weight
Losing weight helps you feel better as well as look better: every extra pound puts 4 times the stress on your knees. Losing as little as 11 pounds may improve joint health. Setting realistic weight loss goals makes it more likely you'll achieve success. Aim for slow, steady reduction, no more than 2 pounds a week. Quick weight loss is mostly water, so it's more likely to come back. And since muscle weighs more than fat, don't be discouraged if you're working out and the number on the scale doesn't budge or even climbs a bit higher. Chances are, you're losing inches and will see an improvement if you stick with your plan.
All the Right Moves
Making sure you get the right vitamins and minerals is another way to care for your joints. Clinically tested Schiff® Move Free® Advanced gives you The Advantage of 4® key compounds for added joint support. Choose from three great formulas: original Move Free® Advanced Triple Strength, Move Free® Advanced Plus MSM and Move Free® Advanced Triple Strength Plus MSM and Vitamin D.
Start With Glucosamine
A natural substance found in your joints, glucosamine plays an important role in building cartilage, the tough connective tissue that cushions your joints. Studies demonstrate that glucosamine supports joint health and flexibility.*
As in any great partnership, glucosamine works well with another substance. Chondroitin is a complex carbohydrate that helps cartilage retain water. Together they lubricate, cushion, strengthen, protect, and rebuild joints.* Unlike other glucosamine/chondroitin supplements that can take up to four to six weeks to start working, Schiff® Move Free® Advanced starts comforting joints in less than seven days.*
Free radicals are unstable molecules created during a chemical process called oxidation. These radicals can start chain reactions that cause cell damage.
That's where antioxidants come in. They help fight free radicals and limit cell damage. And that's what makes Uniflex® so important. A groundbreaking antioxidant system, it protects your joints from the oxidative damage that accelerate the breakdown of cartilage and other joint tissues. This helps keep your joints working better and feeling younger.*
Cartilage is made up of collagens, proteins, and water. A lot of water: about 85 percent. Cartilage cushions your joints, and functions as a shock absorber. So when cartilage becomes damaged or worn, the affected joint can become sore, lose flexibility and become limited in its range of motion.
Joint Fluid (Mega-Potent Hyaluronic Acid) helps lubricate and rehydrate the joints. Hyaluronic acid attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage.* Clinical studies show that the oral form of hyaluronic acid is absorbed in the joints (Balogh, L. et al., J Ag Food Chem 2008)
Get Your 4 PLUS
Move Free® Advanced Plus MSM provides the added benefit of 1,500 mg of MSM, a natural source of sulfur found in the body which is important in the formation of collagen in joints. The amount of MSM found in Move Free® Advanced Plus MSM is the tested amount shown to support joint comfort.* MSM is an important part of joint cartilage that, when replenished, promotes joint comfort.*
And with Move Free® Advanced Triple Strength Plus MSM and Vitamin D, you get the benefits of MSM PLUS the addition of Vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your overall bone health and joint movement in two significant ways: first, Vitamin D helps your bones absorb calcium better and second, it helps your bones retain the calcium already in them.* This is very important because as we age our bones lose calcium.
Move Free® Advanced Triple Strength Plus MSM & Vitamin D helps comfort joints in less than 7 days.* Its Triple Strength formula means you only have to take 2 tablets per day.
