MOTION Joint Supplement Explained
Anyone who has felt the pain of a sore knee or shoulder knows very well how debilitating it can be to deal with a joint issue. Whether joint pain is caused by an athletic injury, an accident, or just the natural process of aging, we have all dealt with and sought remedies for joint issues. Because joints do not repair as readily as muscle or even bone, the best way to remediate joint injuries and pain is to prevent injuries from happening in the first place. Many athletes take a pre-workout supplement to maximize athletic performance. Many people take vitamins to support the body’s general functions. It only makes sense to take a joint support supplement to maintain long-term joint health. Two of the most common causes of joint issues are inflammation and physical damage. These causes can lead to joint pain or soreness, cracking or clicking sounds within the joint, or space within the joint that may lead to a joint popping out of place. None of these conditions are desirable and can a significant impact on one’s quality of life, let alone training performance.
As sufferers of joint injuries ourselves, we at M.A.S.S. Nutraceuticals take joint health very seriously. MOTION is the result of over a year of research review, product development, and real-world testing. We know this product works because we tested it on ourselves. MOTION was formulated to achieve the following results:
- Reduce systemic and local inflammation
- Repair damaged joints and connective tissues
- Strengthen joints and increase joint lubrication
Of specific note, MOTION is not formulated with pain killers to mask joint pain. The relief you feel is due directly to the repair and strengthening of joints themselves. MOTION is one convenient daily serving first thing in the morning. It can be taken with your other vitamins and supplements, and pairs great with our BRAIN FOOD nootropic supplement. Let us review how MOTION works.
Inflammation. This word is thrown around attached to a variety of ailments. Inflammation most generally refers to your body’s process of fighting natural stressors and a subsequent attempt to heal. Inflammation can be brought on by a physical injury, an illness, an allergy, and even exercise. Inflammation is natural and necessary. Inflammation often resolves itself with proper rest and nutrition. Inflammation only becomes a problem when it becomes a chronic condition when the natural processes of repair instead cause damage to the body.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) extract, also known commonly as curcumin, is fantastic at reducing inflammation. Curcumin has received a lot of attention recently, and for good reason. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It can help in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, including arthritis. It may also help in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thus improving recovery and subsequent performance in active people. MOTION contains a highly potent 95% curcuminoid extract. The effects of curcumin are enhanced substantially when paired with Bioperine. Bioperine is a patented black pepper fruit extract used in supplements to increase the bioavailability of nutrients. Bioperine has been shown to increase the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000% making it an essential ingredient in this formula. Curcumin has also been shown to be fantastic for liver health. MOTION also incorporates Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) extract, Boswellia extract, and bromelain to help reduce inflammation. Bromelain has also been shown to reduce muscle soreness after exercise.
As has been previously mentioned, the best path towards long-term joint health is to prevent damage from occurring in the first place. MOTION incorporates chondroitin sulfate and methylsulfonylmethane to help strengthen and reduce joint cartilage. Chondroitin is a dietary supplement and a vital part of cartilage. Studies have found that taking chondroitin can prevent cartilage from breaking down and can also stimulate its repair mechanisms. Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is an organosulfur compound that occurs naturally in some plants. Studies have shown that MSM significantly reduces inflammation in the body. MSM also inhibits the breakdown of cartilage.
The final ingredient in MOTION is hyaluronic acid, sometimes referred to as hyaluronan. Hyaluronic acid receives a lot of attention for its efficacy on the skin, but it is also vital to joint health, especially within synovial joints. Hyaluronic acid is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan that has a unique ability to bind and hold on to water.
Synovial joints are the joint type where bones move against each other. Examples of synovial joints are the knee, elbow, hip, and shoulder joints. The hip and shoulder are also examples of a ball and socket joint. This type of joint has an open cavity filled with synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is a water-based fluid that contains high levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid gives synovial fluid is viscous properties which maintains proper lubrication within joints and prevents damage to the cartilage. Additionally, hyaluronic acid helps the growth and development of joint cartilage and bone by promoting the growth of new cells and tissues. MOTION is the only supplement on the market to use a research-backed dosage of 250mg per serving.
You may notice that MOTION does not contain glucosamine, glucosamine sulfate, or any related derivatives. Scientific research is very hit and miss on glucosamine. Many studies that report efficacy include glucosamine paired with other supplements that have their own track record of alleviating joint issues. If glucosamine worked as well as people would like it to there would have been no need to create MOTION.
