Joint Flexibility for a More Active Lifestyle
For many people in the nutrition industry, the simple mention of the term “joint health” conjures up images of the “tried and true” dietary supplement, glucosamine. Numerous research studies show the ability of glucosamine supplements to help rebuild and repair joint cartilage to keep joints healthy and flexible. If you’re a consumer of MonaVie Active juice or MonaVie MX juice, then you’re already familiar with the plant-derived form of glucosamine (not from shellfish, like most glucosamine supplements) that MonaVie uses in both products.
What you might not be familiar with, however, is that having a healthy “joint” is a lot more than just healthy cartilage. Joints are actually complex systems involving bones, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels—and all of these structures need to be maintained in a state of healthy turnover (balance between buildup/breakdown) if we want to stay mobile and flexible as we age.
