Joint Vibrance contains a full gram of methyl sulfonyl methane, or MSM. This ingredient supports the re-synthesis of flexible disulfide bonds in connective tissue, including tendons and ligaments of the joint. The goal is to support overall flexibility and ease of movement.
Disulfide bonds work like hinges in a door. They contain two sulfur molecules, and predominate in the connective tissue of infants, and children. Those disulfide bonds tend to be replaced by stiffer, protein bonds as we age. It has been suggested that the replacement of disulfide bonds by protein bonds is due to a chronic, subclinical deficiency of sulfur throughout our lifetimes. Whether or not that is true, we do know that supplementing the diet with MSM can help increase again the number of flexible disulfide bonds in connective tissue.
