ProHealth’s Organic Bone Broth Protein Joint & Muscle Support formula provides 15 grams of protein as well as a full range of amino acids, minerals and collagen to support muscle support and joint comfort. Organic Bone Broth Protein supplies a unique nutrient profile not found in other foods. It contains collagen and more importantly, the amino acids proline and glycine. These amino acids make up collagen, the primary structural protein that provides integrity, firmness, and elasticity to skin and joints.
Organic Bone Broth consists of 38% collagen protein type I, II, & III. Type I & III support skin, muscles, bone health, and hair and nail growth and maintenance, while type II helps support the fluids and function in cartilage and joints. Another important amino acid in bone broth is glutamine. It plays a vital role in some of the body’s most important functions such as energy production and protein synthesis. Glutamine is essential for an active metabolism, an import neurotransmitter, and vital for muscle function. Bone broth is also an excellent source of essential minerals calcium, magnesium, sulfur and silicon.
Joint & Muscle Support Formula
Ashwagandha Root - As an adaptogen, this popular Ayurvedic herb supports the body in a variety of ways. One way it works is to reduce inflammation.[i] Researchers have identified several compounds that specifically target inflammation that affects the joints and are responsible for chronic pain.[ii] Another study reported that ashwagandha specifically protected collagen from breakdown.[iii]
Organic Turmeric - Even though turmeric captured popular attention for its anti-inflammatory properties years ago, enthusiasm for its ability to ease joint pain hasn’t waned. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, has shown a great deal of promise in the treatment of joint and muscle inflammation.
- In 2012, a study of 45 patients suffering from chronic joint pain reported those who took curcumin experienced greater relief than those in the placebo group.[iv]
- Curcumin has also been shown to reduce muscle pain and inflammation.[v]
- A recent study reports a blend of curcumin with Boswellia brought significant relief to patients ages 40-70 suffering from osteoarthritis.[vi]
Wokvel (Boswellia Serrata) - Commonly known as Frankincense, Boswellia serrata has a long history in Ayurvedic medicine for joint health. Modern research supports its anti-inflammatory properties, especially in the treatment and protection of joints.[vii] WokVel® is an extract developed by Verdure Life Sciences to ensure the maximum availability of the nutrients to support its effect.
