Healthy bones and joints enable us to move about freely and without discomfort. Our skeletal system is constructed of hundreds of movable parts connected by ligaments and tendons, lubricated and cushioned by cartilage. It requires constant maintenance. The bones undergo a continuous mineralization process, which involves magnesium, calcium, fluoride and boron moving into and out of the bone matrix, regulated by various hormones. Bone thinning occurs when this mineral flow is out of balance. Cartilage and ligaments require constant lubrication, repair, and maintenance. Wear and tear eventually takes its toll as many people suffer from lack of mobility and pain associated with worn out joints and brittle bones associated with ageing, injury, and disease. A healthy lifestyle which involves regular exercise and a nutritious diet goes far in getting the most "mileage" out of our skeletal system.
In addition to proper diet and regular exercise, the additional daily intake of several key nutrients can help to further insure healthy bone and joint function. Dietary supplementation helps provide valuable insurance against the detrimental effects of ageing, disease, and injury. Calcium is without a doubt one of the most crucial nutrients. The chances of age related "thinning of the bones" can be dramatically reduced by taking a daily calcium supplement. Vitamin D, boron, and magnesium are also extremely important to bone mineralization. Menopausal women should consider hormone replacement therapy as well. Nutrients such as glucosamine provide the necessary building blocks needed for cartilage repair and maintenance. Essential fatty acids, particularly gamma linoleic acid, play a key role in joint lubrication as well as in the regulation of the body's inflammatory process. Many of these very important nutrients should be supplemented as part of a comprehensive program designed to optimize skeletal system function.

|Essential fatty acids are "good fats" that are absolutely necessary for the reproduction of cells. We also need them as part of the many natural biochemical processes of the body. They are called "essential" because each cell in our body needs a supply of them each and every day. They are also called "essential" because they must be taken in from our diets or in supplement form. As part of a healthy lifestyle, supplementing daily with essential fatty acids helps to keep our bodies functioning at their peak. This formula combines the beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are most important to our health. Omega-3 EFAs are utilised by the body in several key areas that help influence general wellbeing. As phospholipid components of cell membranes throughout the body, they support healthy cell function and fluidity. Additionally omega-3 EFAs provide anti-inflammatory activity, and also support the maintenance of healthy brain function and healthy triglyceride levels.|
