Unfortunately, many doctors do not know much about the role that nutritional supplements can play in managing joint discomfort and healthy inflammatory response. When you have joint discomfort, you may be inclined to take a pain medication day after day for years on end. While your doctor may prescribe it, that doesn’t mean that it’s completely safe. Even seemingly innocuous over-the-counter pain medications, known as NSAIDs (like aspirin and ibuprofen), taken for long periods of time, can have serious negative health consequences. Luckily, plenty of research has shown the promise of glucosamine and MSM in reducing joint discomfort and in stemming the tide of joint deterioration over time by protecting cartilage and perhaps even rebuilding it.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound synthesized in the body. Glucosamine stimulates the creation of important components of the cartilage needed for healthy joints. Supplemental glucosamine is generally derived from the shells of crabs and other crustaceans. However, Osteo-GM™ is made with a brand name all vegetarian, non-shellfish source form of glucosamine called Regenasure®. Glucosamine has become accepted by mainstream medical professionals. It's recommended for improving joint mobility, reducing discomfort and helping to repair and maintain cartilage.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur nutrient found in plant foods, animals and humans. Its main joint health benefits are attributed to its extremely high sulfur content — a full one-third of MSM is elemental sulfur. The body needs sulfur to form connective tissue and to produce healthy collagen, and sulfur is notoriously low in the cartilage of joint discomfort sufferers. Researchers speculate that MSM replenishes much-needed sulfur and provides a healthy inflammatory response to promote healthy joint function.
Why combine glucosamine and MSM? Glucosamine is often combined with sulfur for maximum effectiveness. Most formulas use chondroitin as a sulfur. While very effective, chondroitin is animal-based, which makes the popular glucosamine-chrondrotin combination not an option for vegetarians. We were thrilled when we discovered gold-standard, double-blind, placebo-controlled research impressively showing that MSM boosts glucosamine's effectiveness and that, together, these two ingredients have more potent benefits than either does alone!
So we decided to formulate our Osteo-GM™ as an equally effective alternative to glucosamine-chondroitin. But we didn't stop there. Since glucosamine is normally derived from shellfish, we decided we would also make this product appealing to those who are kosher, those who are allergic to shellfish and those who just prefer not to eat fish. We did this by using shellfish free glucosamine!
A secondary reason why we formulated Osteo-GM™ is that this combination offers new possibilities for people who do not feel they get maximum benefits from glucosamine-chondroitin products. Research has shown, for reasons not entirely known, that some people just react much better to the combination of glucosamine and MSM than they do to the glucosamine-chondroitin combo. If glucosamine-chondroitin hasn't worked for you in the past, Osteo-GM™ allows you to give glucosamine another chance. Millions of people take this supplement and swear by it!
What Makes Stop Aging Now's Osteo-GM™ Superior?
- Osteo-GM™ is a vegetarian and kosher alternative to glucosamine-chondroitin and is just as effective for optimal joint, cartilage and bone health. In fact, some studies have shown that some people react better to a glucosamine-MSM combination than glucosamine-chondroitin.
- Our Osteo-GM™ formula is made to USP standards so its optimal dosages of 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,500 of MSM are guaranteed.
- Osteo-GM™ contains 100% Regenasure®, a patented form of glucosamine HCl (hydrochloride), which is the only non-shellfish source form of glucosamine available. Glucosamine HCl is the most pure and most chemically stable form of glucosamine, meaning it is less likely to degrade in potency over time. The HCl form of glucosamine is highly absorbable and is generally the most cost effective form for the consumer.
- Osteo-GM™ is made with OptiMSM®, a patented form of MSM, which is among the purest forms available and one of the only sources made in the U.S.
The Supplements That Science Created
Since our founding in 1995, our philosophy has been centered around a "show us the proof" approach. Every single active ingredient contained in our formulas is backed by strong clinical evidence supporting its anti-aging properties and total body wellness attributes. More importantly, we use the exact doses and exact brands used in the research studies. At Stop Aging Now, our research team reviews over 2,000 clinical studies per year.
Quality You Can Trust
Equally important to potency and effectiveness, you get the reassuring comfort of Stop Aging Now's legendary quality. All of our premium dietary supplements are made in the USA in a state-of-the art FDA inspected facility to meet the stringent standards of US Pharmacopeia (USP) for quality, purity, potency and disintegration. Most supplements are made to far lower standards. Additionally, and unfortunately, many companies keep their costs down by outsourcing production to third world countries where quality controls and regulations are virtually non-existent. Whether you take our premium products or those from another company, we strongly encourage to you to be sure to know where they are manufactured. If the bottle label doesn't say "Made in the USA", they are most likely not. Our manufacturing facilities are located in California, Illinois and Florida. We invite you to take a virtual tour of one of our facilities.
