GCM-1400 (Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, Ilex) by Dee Cee Labs

Benefits of Glucosamine

Glucosamine is needed to form glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronic acid molecules which are the main constituents of joint cartilage. It is the joint cartilage that is damaged from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine sulfate may help protect joint cartilage by limiting the breakdown and helping to build up levels of cartilage.

Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to support cartilage and collagen. Glucosamine also enters the joint space and is incorporated into proteoglycans, which are cells that form large structures and attract water to the joint space for lubrication of cartilage during movement. When you take a glucosamine supplement it may help to relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder that affects 12% of the population. In addition, rheumatoid arthritis sufferers also report improvements with glucosamine supplements.

There is no natural food source of glucosamine, however, the shells of crabs, shrimp and oysters do contain it, and this is the source of most of the dietary supplements.

Benefits of Chondroitin Sulfate

Studies have shown that chondroitin sulfate supplements appears to block the enzymes that can destroy essential cartilage tissue. Chondroitin has become a popular dietary supplement for the treatment of osteoarthritis because combined with glucosamine it has been shown to be very effective. In fact, some studies point out that it is as effective as aspirin and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) at relieving arthritis pains and of course with much less risk of causing stomach bleeding or ulcer formation. Thousands of people die a year from taking these NSAID medications (such as Advil and Nuprin).

In the mid-1990s, scientists discovered that chondroitin is actually well absorbed and because of promising follow-up research in people suffering from osteoarthritis both the American College of Rheumatology and the European League Against Rheumatism were prompted to recommend chondroitin in their published guidelines for osteoarthritis treatment. Both chondroitin and glucosamine are much safer to take than medications such as aspirin or NSAIDs.

Benefits of MSM

MSM is an organic sulfur compound and is short for Methylsulfonylmethane. It is a known fact that MSM is contained in small amounts in everyone's blood and in most foods. MSM appears to be an essential component for the building of proteins, most importantly, the proteins contained in hair, muscles, and connective tissue of the joints and skin. It has been shown that sulfur levels in those patients with arthritic joints are lower than in patients with healthy joints. MSM may help by delivering needed sulfur to the painful joints. For pain control, it seems that MSM inhibits pain impulses that move along nerve fibers. This natural analgesic property and MSM's possible anti-inflammatory role help those suffering from symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and joint discomfort.

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) supplements have been shown to help strengthen joints, improve blood flow and mobility. Many people with arthritis have found that taking MSM combined with herbal remedies and their medication is more effective than taking their medicine alone. Many studies have revealed that MSM combined with Glucosamine and Chondroitin works great for those suffering with joint pain.

Benefits of ILEX

Ilex, also known as Yerba mate has been used by the Indian tribes in Brazil and Paraguay as a beverage. It continues to be a popular beverage throughout South America. Research has shown that Ilex has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antispasmodic properties.

The combination of compounds in our GCM-1400 has made it a popular seller amongst those with arthritis pain in helping to alleviate arthritis symptoms, as well as joint ailments, such as back pain and chronic knee pain. More good news is that it appears that MSM may decrease muscle spasms and increase blood flow to the joints which can contribute to the maintenance and repair of cartilage. Ilex is an anti-inflammatory found in the South American Holly. The glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM & Ilex found in our products are pure and natural.*
