Proteolytic enzymes such as protease, papain, and bromelain help to break down and remove the by-products of inflammation. In this way, they assist the body’s natural healing process and may help to reduce pain and swelling.
Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM
Glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM are nutrients found in healthy joint tissue. They help to support the structure of joints, slow the progression of osteoarthritis, reduce pain and swelling, and improve mobility.
Magnesium and Malic Acid
Magnesium is essential for muscle function, with a deficiency linked to migraine headaches and muscular complaints. Malic acid works in synergy with magnesium to alleviate the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
