As the body ages, many people experience joint discomfort. One option is to take a joint supplement to help promote overall bone and joint health. When looking at a joint supplement, there are three main ingredients found in most products on the market: glucosamine, chondroitin and methylsulfonylmethane, more commonly referred to as MSM.
The research on both chondroitin and MSM is very controversial. Chondroitin, for instance, has very poor absorption due to its high molecular weight. Also, one of chondroitin’s mechanisms is to increase the hyaluronic acid content of synovial fluid; while the new Prime Joint Support Formula by Isotonix directly provides hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in tissue hydration and lubrication. Likewise, research on MSM is not conclusive. In fact, it takes large quantities of MSM daily (2-6 grams) to make a difference and see effects.
Prime Joint Support Formula contains glucosamine, which is naturally produced by the body and acts as a key component of cartilage. An aminomonosaccharide (a combination of the amino acid — glutamine and a sugar — glucose), glucosamine is concentrated in joint cartilage, where it supports healthy joint function. Prime Joint Support Formula also contains the powerful antioxidant Pycnogenol™.
Prime Joint Support Formula is the only product on the market delivering glucosamine, Pycnogenol and hyaluronic acid in isotonic form.
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be in an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to obtain maximum absorption of the nutrients. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and rapidly absorb into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.
Isotonix Delivery System
Isotonix products are isotonic because they match the fluids in the body, which have an almost constant concentration of dissolved particles like salts, sugars and minerals. At this concentration, nutrients and molecules essential for cell metabolism are efficiently transported through cell membranes. Isotonix products are formulated with the proper balance of fructose, glucose, citric acid, potassium bicarbonate and other key ingredients to assure that they are isotonic when properly prepared.
Isotonix products deliver nutrients at the right rate and concentration for complete absorption of the nutrient-dense solution. Isotonix is one of the most scientifically advanced nutrient delivery systems on the market.
Glucosamine is a molecule that is naturally synthesised in the body from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is an important constituent of glycosaminoglycans in cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. As our bodies age, we are less able to produce glucosamine, resulting in cartilage that is less flexible and weak. Although the mechanism is currently unclear, studies have shown that glucosamine supplementation can support normal, healthy cartilage cell production to help maintain overall joint health.
Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol)
Pycnogenol is a water-soluble flavonoid complex with powerful benefits. Pycnogenol, similar to the proanthocyanins found in grape seeds, is extracted from the bark of the French Maritime Pine tree.
Pycnogenol has been shown help maintain the body’s natural defenses and supporting good health. In addition, studies have shown Pycnogenol has the ability to support the cross-linking of collagen fibres and other connective tissue.
Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in tissue hydration and lubrication. Although it is produced naturally by the body, the level of hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, contributing to joint discomfort. It is a key component of cartilage and is important for joint health. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to help maintain strong, healthy cartilage and enhance synovial fluid production.

Thanks for helping Us
This is the very 1st product of shop.com we tried. We were skeptical about it. However, it turns out to be such a magical glucosamine supplement. We learnt about the isotonix delivery system which make this a very effective supplement. My mum experienced severe pain with her right elbow, she couldn't even open a bottle cap or carry heavy stuff. She was taking Prime Joint and Calcium, just before she finished the 1st set, she realised her elbow is stronger than before, she managed to open the bottle cap. We were very convinced with the product and continue taking. Now, my mum is able to carry her grandchild as her wish :)
