Thorne Research AR-Encap
AR-Encap is a comprehensive joint support formula that goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation.* This formula supplies the recommended daily dose of glucosamine in combination with joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.*
Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM), also referred to as dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2) and methyl sulfone, is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and animals, including humans.
Curcumin, the principal polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric, exerts potent antioxidant effects. Curcumin Phytosome is a compound containing curcumin and pure phosphatidylcholine. This compound has demonstrated significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps support the body's normal inflammatory response.*
In addition to glucosamine sulfate, MSM, and curcumin, AR-Encap contains the botanicals Boswellia and devil's claw. Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting the body's normal inflammatory response.*
