Thorne's Meriva® ingredient – curcumin bound to phospholipids – and boswellia both exert an antioxidant effect and help maintain a healthy cytokine balance (for a normal inflammatory response) in the joints and muscles. AR-Encap combine all of these ingredients in a single comprehensive joint support supplement. Joint Support Nutrients is a comprehensive joint support formula that goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation. This formula supplies 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate (suggested use – four capsules twice daily), the amount used in the majority of studies – in combination with other joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.


Glucosamine provides significant joint support, as evidenced by numerous clinical studies. Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) – also known as dimethyl sulfone and methyl sulfone – is an organic, sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of plants and provides additional joint support. In a study of healthy adult subjects with mild knee soreness, bromelain supplementation resulted in significant improvement with both 200-mg and 400-mg daily use. Joint mobility was also improved. Curcumin, the principal polyphenol in the Asian spice turmeric, exerts an antioxidant effect. Curcumin phytosome (Meriva®), a compound that contains curcumin and phosphatidylcholine, has significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps maintain a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body. Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of the lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body. A study of curcumin and boswellia found significant support of normal joint mobility in the group taking the botanical formula. Suggested use Take 4 capsules one to two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner. Other ingredients Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide. Contains ingredients derived from shellfish (glucosamine sulfate = crab and/or shrimp). Tamper Evident: Use only if bottle is sealed. Store tightly sealed in a cool, dry place.
