Glucosamine protects connective tissues, helps maintain the integrity and mobility of joints, and helps lubricate joints by replenishing synovial fluid, which promotes a joint’s shock-absorbing abilities. Chondroitin sulfate attracts fluid and draws nutrients into the cartilage, making the cartilage more shock absorbent. It also promotes growth and normal tissue generation and keeps enzymes in balance. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is present in many fresh foods, but it is destroyed through cooking, processing and storage. Supplementing with this nutrient ensures an adequate supply of sulfur—an important structural component of the connective tissue that joins muscle to bone. Hyaluronic acid is an important component of cartilage and synovial fluid that occurs naturally throughout the body. This molecule plays a crucial role in joint motion, the maintenance of joint homeostasis, skin support, and the maintenance of viscosity and elasticity of the fluid surrounding the joints. EverFlex also contains devil’s claw, an herb long used to support joint health.

25 Adrenal Support Give Your Adrenal Gland a Hand The adrenals produce hormones that help balance blood sugar, which helps your body to manage the daily ebbs and flows of energy. When blood sugar drops, the adrenals release hormones that cause it to rise, increasing energy. When you’re under stress, the adrenals again release hormones in an effort to increase energy. This second reaction can be described as the “fight or flight” response. Being under consistent stress takes a toll on the adrenal glands, and eventually, they run out of steam and stop producing sufficient hormones. Adrenal Support helps maintain normal adrenal function by supporting the body’s ability to regulate stress. Adrenal Support is formulated with powdered bovine adrenal gland from New Zealand, along with a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and adaptogenic herbs. These ingredients include vitamins B1, B2, B6, pantothenic acid and vitamin C, plus zinc, protease, borage oil powder, licorice root and schizandra fruit.
