Optimize your joints for flexibility and comfort to feel and move younger.

  • Joint lubrication and shock absorption*
  • Support ligaments, tendons, cartilage*
  • Herbal relief for stiff, achy joints*
  • Promotes normal joint mobility
    • Chondroitin is a proteoglycan that is found in the cartilage tissue that helps retain fluid in the joint space to support joint mobility. 
    • Glucosamine influences the stimulation of the cartilage extracellular matrix. 
    • MSM supports the natural immune response to oxidative stress in the joint space through its action on cytokines.
  • Supports joint nutrition
    • Glucosamine and chondroitin support the joint fluid that carries nutrients to the bone and cartilage.
  • Promotes healthy joint structures, cartilage, and connective tissues
    • Chondroitin is an important structural component of cartilage in that it provides much of the resistance to compressive forces on the cartilage.
    • Chondroitin influences gene expression in the formation of new subchondral bone.
    • Glucosamine is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans which are a major component of cartilage tissue and acts as a substrate for cartilage repair.
    • MSM supports the body’s natural defense against cytokines that can lead to cartilage degradation.
  • Supports natural joint lubrication
    • Chondroitin and glucosamine bind water to help to retain fluids in the joint space.
  • Help maintain an active lifestyle
    • By supporting healthy joints, a person can maintain an active lifestyle.

Ingredient Review:

 

Chondroitin: Chondroitin is a proteoglycan that is found in the cartilage tissue that helps retain fluid in the joint space. It is an important structural component of cartilage as it provides much of the resistance to compressive forces that can wear away cartilage. Chondroitin helps to create osmotic pressure which supports the collagen matrix found in joint. Reported dosages range from 800 – 1200 mg per day. [1-3,6,7]

 

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a monosaccharide naturally produced in the body that is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans which are a major component of cartilage tissue. These molecules also act as substrates for natural cartilage repair. Glucosamine actively binds water molecules to maintain fluids in the joint space. Reported dosages range from 1000 – 1500 mg per day. [1,2,6,7]

 

MSM: Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring organosulfur compound. MSM influences transcription factors and gene expression of cytokines to support natural defenses against oxidative stress. MSM helps to preserve cartilage elasticity through free radical scavenging in the joint space. Reported dosages range from 200 mg – 4000 mg per day. [4,5]



What are the ways this formulation is better than the competitors:

 

As a joint formula, the NOW Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM product contains the three most widely studied ingredients for joint health at dosages that are supported by the scientific literature.

⚠️ WARNING!⚠️

We want to keep you safe!

Please consult your physician, assess your fitness level, and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment.

Body By Yoga provides a variety of exercise programs, some of which are physically demanding and high-intensity in nature. For this reason, you must listen to your body, use common sense, take breaks, and hydrate as needed to avoid injury. If at any time you feel any discomfort, pain, dizziness, light-headedness, shortness of breath, or nausea, stop exercising immediately and consult your physician. Incorrect or excessive training can result in serious injury or death.

When doing any outdoor workouts or activities, be aware of your surroundings and avoid anything that could hurt you or disrupt your exercise, especially when walking or running in public areas such as sidewalks and streets.

If you have any unique or special medical conditions, such as if you’re pregnant, have diabetes or asthma, or if you have a history of knee, ankle, hip, shoulder or spinal (back or neck) problems, you must consult your physician to understand all potential risks and complications of using our exercise programs, nutrition plans, and/or equipment, and receive approval from them to proceed before beginning. Failure to do so could result in significant injury to you and others (including, if applicable, your unborn child). By engaging in any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment, you assume all dangers, hazards and risks of injury or death.

SAFE USE OF EQUIPMENT

FITNESS EQUIPMENT PRESENTS HAZARDS WHICH, IF NOT AVOIDED, COULD CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH

Certain programs may utilize equipment, such as yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, chairs, foam rollers, and other equipment which, if not used correctly, could lead to serious injury or death. Carefully review all safety, care and use instructions and manuals prior to beginning.

For your safety, you must:

Use any equipment shown in the workouts only as demonstrated, using proper form.
Inspect any equipment for wear or damage prior to each use and refrain from using any equipment that appears damaged, worn or defective.
Keep children, pets and any other obstacles away from equipment and exercise area at all times.
Always use a secure, proper, and stable anchor for any equipment that requires hanging or attaching.
Always exercise caution during use of any equipment to make sure you do not lose your grip or control, such as making sure your hands are not wet or sweaty.
Ensure exercise bands are firmly secure and assembled to prevent slipping, snapping, recoiling and injury to yourself or anyone else.
Ensure your workout bench and pull up bar is stable, strong enough to hold your weight and does not move during use. If you do not think you can safely perform exercises with your bench or pull up bar, or you do not have the proper equipment, you should do the modifier exercises instead.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Body By Yoga and its parent, affiliate, and subsidiary companies will not be liable to any person or entity for any injury, death, damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by any exercise programs, workouts, nutritional supplements or plans, equipment (including without limitation the Body By Yoga mat and Body By Yoga blocks), advice or any other products, services or materials.
