Description

Joinix Plus tablet is a balanced combination of two leading natural supplements of healthy cartilage - Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar of cartilage that provides the basic raw material needed by the body to manufacture joint cartilage. And Chondroitin is another naturally occurring mucopolysaccharide of cartilage that stimulates cartilage production, inhibits cartilage destroying enzymes, draws fluid to the cells and helps lubricate the joints.

They work synergistically together to help stimulate the production and regeneration of connective tissues (e. g., cartilage, bone, tendon, skin, mucous membrane, blood vessels etc.).

Indications

Indicated for the treatment of osteoarthritis of knee, hip, spine, hand, and other locations as a dietary supplement. It is also beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis, sport injuries, migraine, different skin problems (e.g., psoriasis), vascular complications (e. g., atherosclerosis), kidney stones, and inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis, leaky gut syndrome).

Dosage & Administration

1 to 2 tablets three times daily or as directed by the physician. Obese individuals may need higher doses, based on body weight.
