Procosa supplement helps maintain and protect joint health with a unique blend of vegetarian glucosamine, vitamin C, and Meriva bioavailable curcumin.
Your joints connect your bones together, with most of them acting as “pivot points” that allow you to move and bend and help absorb impact sustained during daily activity. When joints are healthy, they allow the bones to move together comfortably. However, in some individuals, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin, resulting in more joint friction, discomfort, and stiffness.
In addition to a healthy diet and maintaining moderate physical activity, the unique blend of vegetarian glucosamine, vitamin C, Meriva bioavailable curcumin, and other nutrients in Procosa can help support optimal joint health and function so you can maintain an active, independent lifestyle.
Between the bones is a narrow space—the joint cavity. Within the joint cavity, your bones are capped with cartilage, which helps reduce friction during movement. Cartilage gets its lubrication and nutrients from synovial fluid, which also acts like a shock absorber. If synovial fluid and cartilage deteriorate, the spacing between the bones narrows, and eventually the bones will rub together. Research has shown that joint space may be better maintained in those who take glucosamine.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is believed to play a role in regulating cartilage formation by encouraging production of collagen and by acting as a building block for proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are essential for healthy cartilage because they bind the water that lubricates and cushions the joint. Glucosamine is well-absorbed and effectively distributed into tissues, including articular cartilage.
Glucosamine also stimulates production of hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for the lubricating and shock-absorbing properties of synovial fluid. Synovial fluid reduces friction between the articular cartilage of synovial joints—wrists, knees, elbows, shoulders, hips—during movement. The recommended daily dose of Procosa provides the body with 1500 mg of vegetarian glucosamine.
Joint stability comes from ligaments that connect bones to each other and tendons that connect muscles to bone. One of the main structural proteins needed to maintain the integrity and strength of your ligaments and tendons is collagen. Collagen synthesis depends on the presence of vitamin C, which is why Procosa delivers 225 mg per daily dose.
Meriva bioavailable curcumin, a critical component of the Procosa formula, is an innovative phytosome that has been shown to support joint comfort and function. Curcumin helps protect chondrocytes (joint cells) and provides antioxidant activity. Traditionally, curcumin, which is derived from turmeric, has very poor bioavailability and is not absorbed efficiently. Meriva enhances the absorbion of Procosa by combining curcumin with a phospholipid, which improves absorption by helping it pass through cell walls more easily, making it nearly 30 times more bioavailable than traditional curcumin preparations.
