Advanced Joint Complex™ naturally contains carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), superoxide dismutase, and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in specially grown, enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Acerola cherry Malpighia glabra, New Zealand bovine tracheal cartilage, Burdock root Arctium lappa, Alfalfa plant Medicago sativa, Aloe leaves Aloe vera, Cayenne fruit Capsicum, Devil’s claw Harpagophytum procumbens, Horsetail herb Equisetum arvense, Borage seeds Borago officinalis, and Grape seeds Vitis vinifera —all the nutrients shown above are contained in these foods.
Unlike many so-called ‘natural’ formulas, FOOD Advanced Joint Complex™ is only comprised of foods, contains no synthetic USP nutrients or isolated mineral salts, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates.
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
