Joint Guard Review – How Well Does It Really Work?

What Are The Ingredients Of Joint Guard?

One of the great advantages of a supplement that is as well known as Joint Guard, which is manufactured by Met RX, is the wide availability of actually useful public information, including a supplement label which lists most of the ingredients by weight or amount. In fact, this information is in such high demand that Joint Guard has published a PDF which has the supplement facts label in a printed form, a convenience which most other manufacturers have failed to provide. The ingredients of Joint Guard are divided into two sections. The first section consist of glucosamine sulfate and the  “super Joint Guard proprietary blend,” and the second section consists of the second proprietary blend. The presence of two proprietary blends contributes to general consumer confusion as to what the actual contents of a Joint Guard capsule may be. The first proprietary blend is called the “super Joint Guard proprietary blend” which basically consists of MSM and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients are very popular in joint supplements, and are basically accepted as standard ingredients. This does not necessarily mean that these ingredients are effective, since they have overlooked the relatively low bioavailability (the amount of a substance which survives digestion).

Furthermore, the second proprietary blend is even more difficult to understand. It only consists of 300 mg, which is usually not enough to deliver any kind of useful effect into the bloodstream. Consider all the joints in the body, and how much matter is to be affected, then divide 300 mg of the proprietary blend by all these different joints, and you can see how it could take several months or even years to create any kind of difference  with Joint Guard. The second proprietary blend seems to deliver a profile of omega three, Omega-6, and Omega-9 fatty acids. Fatty acids have long been associated with a reduction of inflammation, but in fact, Omega-6es and Omega-9s are usually covered by any diet which includes vegetable oils. Since most adults already ingest vegetable oil, they’re getting plenty of Omega-6 and Omega-9. Omega three is usually found in fatty fish. The proprietary blend of Omega fatty acids for joint care consists of evening Primrose oil, flax seed oil, and fish oil, which would cover most the basics for Omega fatty acids, if 300 mg were enough. In fact, most adults need over 2 grams of fatty acids in order to fulfill their basic needs. This is the amount delivered by a serving of fatty fish, or by an omega-3 supplement.

In conclusion, Joint Guard seems to offer more than most other joint supplements, although there are relatively few servings per container, and each serving is large, in order to accommodate a glucosamine, chondroitin, and omega fatty acid profile.
