Structural System Support

Bone Up on Structural System Support
by Jody Taylor

When the cold days of winter arrive, many people find themselves acutely aware of their joints and muscles. Because the chilly weather brings these body parts to mind, we’re reminding you of the Nature’s Sunshine products designed to help. These products support the structural system—keeping the body’s bones, joints and muscles strong and healthy, and optimizing full function of them.

Skeletal Strength®
As women age, proper bone support and maintenance become a priority. Working in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, Skeletal Strength helps women maintain good bone health, which may lessen the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Each daily serving of 4 tablets provides 600 mg calcium, 600 mg magnesium, plus key vitamins and trace minerals in a blend of six synergistic herbs.

EverFlex combines all of the most promising joint health supplements into one tablet—hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and devil’s claw herb—to protect and lubricate joints and help increase shock absorption. EverFlex Pain Cream enhances flexibility and joint mobility through pain reduction. This penetrating, fast-acting cream features MSM and the cooling relief of menthol to help with minor joint discomfort.

The botanical ingredients in HSN-W nourish hair, skin and nails with nutrients that support the entire structural system—including bones, joints and muscles. HSN-W contains dulse and horsetail, which contain high natural concentrations of the trace mineral silicon, plus sage and rosemary for antioxidant protection.

Collatrim delivers proteins and important amino acids to the body, which it may utilize to rebuild muscles and strengthen lean muscle mass. The key ingredient in Collatrim is collagen, an important nutrient for healthy skin and strong joints. Available in capsules or powder, Collatrim provides the amino acids your body needs to build muscle tissue and help keep joints healthy.

IF Relief
IF Relief combines herbal extracts that may support the body’s natural process for relieving minor muscle pain due to overuse. While it can be especially effective following strenuous exercise or physical activity, it’s also a great choice for people seeking simply to maintain ongoing joint and tissue health.

Nature’s Noni®
The juice of the Morinda citrifolia fruit is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants. Phytonutrients nourish the body’s cells, organs and tissues. They, along with antioxidants, fight oxidative stress caused by pollution, strenuous physical activity and other free-radical-generating factors. By fighting free radical damage to the body’s cells, the nutrients in Nature’s Noni provide essential support to the structural system.

SynerPro® Calcium–Magnesium
Keep bones healthy and strong by providing them with 800 mg calcium and 400 mg magnesium—plus beneficial amounts of vitamin D, phosphorus, zinc, copper and boron—in each serving of SynerPro Calcium–Magnesium. This is a great daily supplement for ensuring you always get the nutrients you need, even when your diet falls short.

Vitamin D3
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that supports both bone health and the immune system. Normally, the body synthesizes vitamin D from sunlight, but recent studies indicate that we may not be getting enough from sunlight alone. Nature’s Sunshine recently introduced a new supplement that provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3, which is the amount many studies recommend for maintenance. This essential vitamin is naturally derived from lanolin.

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic muscle soreness, stiffness and fatigue. The body’s energy production process may make muscle discomfort worse. When the body is deficient in energy-producing fuel, it breaks down muscle protein to create energy. Fibralgia contains malic acid and magnesium. Malic acid, found naturally in high concentrations in apples and other fruits and vegetables, plays an important role in cellular energy production. The body uses magnesium to help absorb several vitamins and minerals, promote bone strength and regulate nerve impulses.

Let these time-tested products from Nature’s Sunshine combat occasional stress to the structural system and make this winter season more enjoyable.
