Joint BuilderTM uses cutting edge technology to provide your body with these nutritional supplements through their patented technology called Quick-SolvTM tablets which dissolve within several minutes after ingestion. Some of the more commercial forms of glucosamine have waxes and coatings that make them look nice, but the absorption is severely reduced and you end up flushing away these nutrients down the drain. Quick-SolvTM tablets are only found with Joint BuilderTM. This is our preferred brand of Glucosamine Sulfate with MSM and other vitamins to help heal injured cartilage.

Glucosamine Sulfate is a stable, clinically studied source of glucosamine that stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans that are the fundamental building blocks required for cartilage growth. Glucosamine is also an essential building block of proteoglycans, hyluronaic acid (a component of joint lubrication) and glycolipids. It is essential for the proper formation of tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, bones, nails and blood vessels. Joint BuildersTM glucosamine is naturally water soluble and low in molecular weight, thereby offering rapid and high absorption (over 90%). For more information about glucosamine in general, see our Glucosamine Page.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring substance found in most freshly cut or picked plants. MSM is a sulfur donor. When a plant is cut such, as grass, this sulfur is released and this is why you have that wonderful smell. However, MSM is volatile and is rapidly lost after fruits and vegetables are harvested. MSM may be lacking in our modern diet since we rarely have the opportunity to eat freshly harvested fruits and vegetables. MSM may have some favorable benefits in the treatment of arthritis. MSM donates its vital sulfur to allow your body to utilize such essential vitamins as Vitamin B, which are essential for cartilage growth. MSM has also been theorized to reduce inflammation by increasing the effectiveness of cortisol, which is the body's own natural inflammation fighter. MSM is relatively safe even at large doses and has little known and documented side effects.

Manganese is a mineral important for the synthesis of cartilage components and is also considered an antioxidant because it is vital to the function of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). Maganese has been used in Europe to treat inflammation of joints, tendons and ligaments. Maganese is found naturally in many whole foods such as nuts, beans, oatmeal, and beef liver. However, it is usually lacking in processed foods.

Vitamin C is the most famous vitamin known for its ability to act as an antioxidant. However, it is also very important in cartilage production as well as protecting your cartilage from free-radical breakdown. We normally obtain our vitamin C from citrus fruits, but the high contents of vitamin C are usually lost when we discard the outer skins or leaves.

Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin linked to healthy bones and joints. Lack of vitamin D usually leads to poor utilization of calcium. We have recently found that women with lower levels of vitamin D3 have alterations in their genetic code causing more rapid progression of arthritis on x-rays. We have also found that women with lower levels of vitamin D exhibited a three-fold increase in the progression of their arthritis. The best natural source of vitamin D is cold water fish, butter and eggs. However, the concern of many women about low fat diets has caused many to seek other forms of vitamin D such as supplements.

When comparing to other brands, please make sure you're comparing apples to apples and oranges to oranges:

  • Does the other brand have all the other vitamins that JointBuilder contains (MSM, manganese, Vit C & D)? You may pay a lot more to get these in addition and have to take more pills.
  • How many milligrams (mg) of glucosamine does the other brand provide? Some will only provide 500mg; you'll need to take at least 3 of those a day!
  • How many months will one bottle last you, assuming that you take 1500mg a day? Joint Builder provides you with a two month supply in one bottle! Most other brands provide you with a month or less.
  • Is the other glucosamine you're considering a generic or unknown company brand? You want to be sure that you're getting pharmaceutical-grade, high quality glucosamine and not some quickie formulation with untested quality.
