Connex Plus 90c is available by Pharmax.
Connex Plus contains the major components involved in the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissue. Connex Plus is the Pharmax product of choice in any circumstances where joint mobility and flexibility are challenged or where there is joint pain.
Glucosamine is the building block of the proteoglycan matrix, which constitutes the major component of cartilage. Several double-blind, placebo-controlled trials looking at joint pain, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis have shown significant beneficial effects with supplementation of glucosamine sulfate (Noack et al., 1994, Rovati et al., 1994, Reginster et al., 2001). Glucosamine appears to have its effect by preserving proteoglycan structure and so slows the progression of disease and symptoms. Furthermore, evidence then suggests that the damaged tissues heal with glucosamine supplementation.
Chondroitin sulfate is a glycosaminoglycan composed of repeating units of N-acetylchondrosine. In most diseases or malfunction of connective tissue, the structure of chondroitin is compromised and this can be ameliorated by supplementation.
Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) is an excellent source of sulfur, an essential element for the formation of keratin, collagen and elastin. Sulfur plays a vital role in detoxification and also inhibits the cross-linking and bonding of collagen (thought to be responsible for the ageing, wrinkling and toughening of skin). Sulfur supplementation with MSM can therefore help to maintain the elasticity of the skin and tissues, speed wound healing and reduce scar tissue. MSM also supports the health of mucosal barriers of the body.
Due to the nature of how the components of Connex Plus function in the metabolic process, at least eight weeks of supplementation are needed in most people before significant
