Day after day, our joints and bones take a beating just by moving and performing daily activities. Many times, we aren’t aware of the wear and tear on our joints until it is too late. At this point, we feel pain, inflammation, and reduced mobility, all due to our standard, daily mobility.
As we get older, we have to learn to take care of our joints; this is where Spring Valley’s Double Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin Dietary Supplement Soft Chews come in.
Both glucosamine and chondroitin are components of cartilage. Glucosamine is commonly used as a treatment for osteoarthritis and chondroitin as well. Both of these components are found within the proteins and collagens that make up the cartilage.
Spring Valley has created a dietary supplement chew that assist in rebuilding the cartilage that suffers due to years of damage. The chews come in different flavors; I suggest the orange cream flavor, it has less of an after taste, however having water nearby is not a bad idea. The chews are low in calories, only 25 calories to be exact. Hardly any fat, sugars, or carbohydrates. But they do have 500mg of Glucosamine and 400 mg of Chondroitin. This supplement does also contain shellfish, for those who are allergic.
In order for this supplement to work effectively you will need to take one soft chew three times a day. I suggest spacing them out throughout the day such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The chews provide the nutrients that are necessary for healthy joints by nourishing the cartilage, synovial fluid, and other connective tissues.
I have been using this product for about a year now and have noticed that there has been a change in flexibility and range of motion due to the proteins as well as joint lubrication. The level of pain has lessened and because the product is made of the same components of your body, it is safe to ingest.
You can purchase Spring Valley’s Double Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin Dietary Supplement Soft Chews from any GNC store or Wal-Mart. I normally buy the 50 pack, however they do have lesser packages available as well as flavors. The 50 package box will run you around twelve to fifteen dollars depending on where you purchase them.
If you don’t want to take the double strength version of the chews, there is a regular strength version of the product that contains 250mg of glucosamine and 200mg of chondroitin.
I highly recommend this product for those of us out there that suffer from bone and joint pain, arthritis, and any type of patellar instability such as me. But remember, in order for this product to work, you have to take three chews a day, daily! Your bones and joints will thank you!
