Health Benefits at a Glance:
The joints are important to the body because they are the tissue that links bones together. Many people experience declining joint health as a part of the natural aging process. This often results in general joint discomfort, joint stiffness, as well as lower mobility. Among joint supplements, ArthroMax® Elite has a unique formula consisting of three potent herbal extracts that work together to guard the body against inflammatory factors in the joints, maintain normal cartilage tissue, and also promote overall joint health for freedom of movement and joint comfort in advanced age.
Why it Works:
The joint structure connects individual bones together and allows them to operate with each other. The joint structure consists of bones, cartilage, connective tissue, and natural lubrication compounds.
However, declining joint health and mobility affects many people every day [1-3]. One of the key factors in determining joint comfort is the degree of inflammation of the joints. Inflamed joint tissue can affect both freedom of movement as well as the overall health of connective tissues such as cartilage- and joint tissue.
ArthroMax® Elite contains a unique formula that combines three potent herbal extracts from Chinese skullcap, white mulberry, and cutch tree. Together, these three extracts offer a three-pronged strategy which supports the body’s inflammatory response, helps maintain healthy connective cartilage tissue, and also promotes a comfortable functioning of the joints.
The Science Behind the Product:
The ArthroMax® Elite formula contains three different herbal extracts that together can promote joint health. Furthermore, each of them offers different strategies for improving joint health, promote joint comfort, and enhance ease of movement:
Extract from Chinese Skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) contains a compound called baicalin. This compound helps inhibit inflammatory factors that can affect joint health and therefore also freedom of movement. In a study that measured every 30 days up to 90 days, the study participants reported that extract from Chinese skullcap combined with cutch tree extract produced significant improvements in comfort and ease of motion, compared to a placebo control group .
White Mulberry Extract:
Extract from White Mulberry (Morus alba) promotes cartilage health by supporting and helping to maintain normal joint cartilage levels and inhibit inflammatory factors in the joints, evidenced by several biomarkers .
Furthermore, research also indicates that subjects who take white mulberry and cutch tree extract together see a decline of a specific biomarker called urinary type II collagen C-telopeptide (uCTX-II). A lower level of this biomarker in the urin indicates that one has a healthy cartilage maintenance [6, 7].
Cutch Tree Extract:
Extract from Cutch Tree (A. catchu) can promote both joint- and connective tissue health in a number of ways. Together with extracts from Chinese skullcap, it also supports joint comfort, ease of motion, and can even help to promote a healthy inflammatory response in the joints. Furthermore, when the extract from cutch tree is combined with extract from White Mulberry, it also helps to inhibit two pro-inflammatory compounds known as 5-LOX and COX enzymes . These are enzymes that can encourage inflammation of the joints.
A healthy inflammatroy response has long been linked to good joint health. The formula in ArthroMax® Elite combines the above mentioned three potent extracts into a single supplement that provides a three-pronged strategy for maintaining youthful levels of healthy joint cartilage, inhibit inflammatory factors in the joints, and sustain ease of movement in advanced age.
