Complex with MSM
Promotes healthy joints and connective tissues*
Source Naturals GLUCOSAMINE CHONDROITIN COMPLEX WITH MSM provides four important building blocks for healthy joints and connective tissues: glucosamine, chondroitin, bioavailable sulfur (MSM), and vitamin C. Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is an essential structural component of glycosaminoglycans, large linear molecules that help to lubricate joints, nourish cartilage and connective tissue, and assist in wound healing. Chondroitin sulfate lends additional structural support via its high degree of interaction with collagen fibers. Bioavailable sulfur (MSM) plays a critical role in the integrity of joints and connective tissues. Vitamin C, essential for the production of collagen, also serves as an effective free radical scavenger to protect cells. Molybdenum aids in complete metabolism of MSM, glucosamine, and chondroitin.*

- Health Notes
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
