Prime Fifty Advanced Daily Joint Formula has been specifically developed for the needs of the over 50’s, as part of a nutritional range designed to help you stay active. Supporting your joints and connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments, is vital for movement and agility, and this unique formula has been developed to help keep your joints, ligaments and tendons in prime condition.

Glucosamine
Found naturally in quite high concentration in joints, glucosamine is recognised throughout the world as a front line joint health ingredient. It is a basic building block of certain constituents of cartilage.

Glucosamine is important for maintaining elasticity, strength and resilience of cartilage , helping to reduce damage to joints.

Chondroitin
This is another material found naturally in joint tissues such as cartilage and connective tissues. Molecularly chondroitin is a mixture of large molecular weight glycosamino glycans (GAGs) and other polymers. GAG’s are the substances in which collagen fibres are embedded in.

Chondroitin tends to absorb water adding to the thickness and elasticity of collagen. Also chondroitin is believed to destroy harmful enzymes in joint tissues which are responsible for breaking down cartilage.

Hydrolysed Collagen
Many Companies are now offering collagen materials which has been hydrolysed (chopped up to make it more absorbable/bioavailable) as a joint health ingredient. Despite there being no approved joint health claims, again there is much evidence from various companies and scientists around the world that hydrolysed collagen is absorbed effectively and that in some cases, joint health has been proven to improve. Research continues.

MSM (Methy Sulphonyl Methane)
A fourth joint health ingredient used by Prime Fifty is MSM, a sulphur containing nutrient which again has been studied across the world within joint science. MSM contains a very high level of sulphur and it is the presence of this available sulphur that some believe is the reason why MSM has been shown in some studies to help joint health. The exact mechanism is not completely understood.

Hyaluronic acid
This material is found naturally in our body, mostly in the joint, various connective tissues and also the eyes too. It is also used in its injection form by doctors, for those with painful joints, including osteoarthritis, increasing the natural cushion within joint tissue.

Vitamin C, Manganese and Copper
In separate studies, Vitamin C has been shown to contribute to the formation of collagen, which is the protective layer between bones, whilst Manganese and Copper are proven scientifically to contribute to the maintenance of tendons and ligaments. As tendons and ligaments are both connected to bone, and collagen plays a key role in bone movement, Prime Fifty believe that they are highly relevant ingredients to use in their joint health products, hence their inclusion.

Selenium, Zinc and Vitamin C
One of the cell damaging mechanisms within the body is known as ‘oxidative stress’. This is why Prime Fifty has also added selenium, Vitamin C and zinc, as all three of these nutrients contribute to the reduction of this oxidative stress, so protecting our cell damage to some extent. Such cell damage also occurs within joints and therefore these ingredients are key additions to our formula.

 

Other Age Relevant Ingredients Across the Prime Fifty Range

Finally, as with all Prime Fifty products, Vitamin D has been added for ongoing bone health.

Calcium too is present again to contribute to bone health but also helping normal muscle function too, relevant to this particular product.

Vitamin C is present for energy, the immune system, collagen formation and also to help protect cells from oxidative damage, something highly relevant to the ageing body.

Vitamin E is formulated across the Prime Fifty range as a further protectant from this cell damage caused by oxidative processes within the ageing body.

Vitamins B6 and B12 are used in all Prime Fifty products too , bringing a range of over 50’s relevant benefits such as red blood cell formation and contributing to normal levels of homocysteine.

Homocysteine is associated with cardiovascular problems and therefore it is important to maintain normal levels and not allow homocysteine to get too high.

Folate is also a Prime Fifty ingredient used across the entire product range, as folate also helps maintain normal levels of homocysteine. It also has other health benefits such as red blood cell formation and is involved in energy metabolism too.

All Prime Fifty products also contain Zinc bringing a whole range of benefits including bone health, immunity and also cognitive benefits too. Like Vitamin C and E, Zinc is another active nutrient that plays a role in helping to combat oxidative stress which can damage cells, highly relevant to ageing processes.

As connective tissues, such as tendons and ligaments are important to look after as one ages, the Prime Fifty range also contains Copper which together with Vitamin C contributes to collagen formation and also to the maintenance of connective tissues.

Enhanced Bio-availability
Finally you will find that across the entire Prime Fifty range, we have formulated in certain minerals that are more soluble and therefore more bio-available than most, namely bis-glycinates. These are much more quickly absorbed than the more normal oxides and carbonates. In addition, we have included a patented ingredient called Bioperine too which has been proven in separate studies to also enhance the bio-availability of certain vitamins and minerals

 

Prime Fifty targets a specific health area BUT ALSO is formulated for general health benefits which are highly relevant to the ageing body too.
