JOINTS BUILT FOR DISTANCE
Smooth, easy, pain-free movement is taken for granted until we start losing that ability in our joints. Then, every step we take or lift we make can be an aggravated attempt to do the things we’re accustomed to doing.
Wilderness Athlete Joint Advantage is a state-of-the-science formulation that helps protect and preserve healthy mobility of every joint, from knees and hips to shoulders and wrists.*
Glucosamine is naturally found in the body, particularly in the tissues of the cartilage, and is present to provide a natural cushion and shock-absorber for the joints.
Glucosamine allows us to move about freely while reducing friction, and pain that would naturally occur otherwise. It’s job is to pair with other proteins in the body to enhance the preservation of cartilage, and create the production of synovial fluid, which also provides further lubrication for the joints to keep them moving well and without difficulty.*
Trust me, this is an ingredient you’ll be thankful is abbreviated for embarrassment's sake. Methylsulfonylmethane gets its name for the star of the show, Sulfur, and it doesn’t take long to realize why this element deserves some credit.This sulfur-containing compound can naturally be found in some vegetables, other food items, and even within our bodies.
MSM has found to have numerous health benefits, including improved skin, reduction in muscle spasms, and even an improved environment within our gut. But the main focus for us here at Wilderness Athlete is the reduction in inflammation and swelling that MSM provides for our joints.
This compound generously improves the collagen production and assists in the repair process of the tendons and ligaments within our joints, and if that wasn’t enough, provides the flushing out of by products and excess fluids that naturally inflict swelling and pain.*
Also known as the ‘Golden Spice,’ Turmeric gains its popularity among the culinary community for its earthy and powerful flavor in middle eastern areas, but quickly gained enormous respect in the medical field not long after.
The way it works in the body is the Curcumin found in Turmeric that is a natural anti-inflammatory that blocks the production of COX-2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) that is highly associated with inflammation in our bodies. Turmeric is also responsible for improving the Osteoarthritic conditions which is a chronic illness associated with, you guessed it, inflammation.
You can quickly see the plethora of benefits that Turmeric can give the body, and we love the fact that it’s a natural ingredient grown in the wild wilderness.*
Another bang for your buck in the natural world of anti-inflammatories, Boswellia has been the focus of numerous scientific studies supporting the use of this in many cases including Arthritis pain, cancer reduction, increased healing from infections, and if that wasn’t enough, helps prevent Auto-Immune disease. You may have heard of it through its more common name, Frankincense and can be found in dryer climates of the Middle East, specifically in the Indian, and African regions.
Boswellia is backed by a plethora of scientific research speaking to the reduction in joint pain, especially when paired with Turmeric. Need I say more when it comes to Joint Advantage being the most viable option for joint relief?*
White Willow Bark might as well be a one-stop shop for all your pain needs. Really though, this natural extract found in the fibrous bark of White Willow trees can be referenced when dealing with joint pain, muscle soreness, menstrual cramps, and even headaches. What a wonderful resource to have in the pain department!
White Willows are native to the European regions including Asia, and Northern Africa, and gains its value in the chemical called Salicin. The name probably doesn’t sound familiar right off-the-bat, but is actually a key ingredient in Aspirin, though it contains many less side-effects as the man-made pain killer does. Salicin is responsible for breaking down oxidative stress which is where pain and inflammation throughout the body derives itself from.*
You will find Meadowsweet (Filipenula Ulmaria) as another active ingredient in the popular Aspirin pain killer as White Willow bark earlier discussed, but this flower also proves to be a much safer option in the pain and inflammation department. Aspirin is known for reducing lining integrity of the stomach walls in higher doses, whereas Meadowsweet provides healthy protection for the body’s system while providing anti-inflammatory benefits.
The extract from Meadowsweet contains flavonoids which contain antioxidant properties, warding off deterioration of cells. This is crucial when you take a look at the aging process specifically regarding our joints and keeping our tissues healthy for as long as possible.*

JOINT ADVANTAGE IS A GREAT PRODUCT CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE WHEN NOT USING WOULD RECOMMEND
My husband swears by the joint advantage. The only thing that helps him since spinal cord surgery.
Seems to be working
My husband uses Joint Advantage when he is having joint pain from overdoing it...he feels much better after taking it for a few short days (he's not consistent, but finds it works that way for him)
Seems to work well less pain.
