    Glucosamine Sulfate
    Glucosamine Sulfate is a natural substance that is the first step to creating connective tissue components and has been tested and confirmed in its ability to aid in healing damaged collagen of joints in arthritis.

    Ester-C is a superior form of vitamin C, essential to the building and maintenance of collagen, needed for healthy joints, bones, skin, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is part of more than 300 bodily functions and assists the management of inflammation.

    Shavegrass contains high concentrations of silica which helps joint mobility, circulation, detoxification and assists the body to reduce inflammation.

    Arthred is a food form of collagen, providing 19 amino acids for natural support of healthy joints and various forms of connective tissue.

    Boswellin is a resin from the Boswellia serrata tree from India shown to be effective in helping the body’s management of joint swelling, mobility and morning stiffness. Boswellin also improves blood supply to the joints and integrity of synovial fluid, which encapsulates joints.

    B-Complex Vitamins
    The B vitamins in Dr. Ricketts’ CJB Plus are in their food state for maximum use by the body. B vitamins are components of enzymatic reactions needed for protection against cell damage from free radicals. Important functions of B vitamins include new tissue growth, proper collagen development for healthy bones and concentration of the essential minerals magnesium and zinc into cells.

    Methylsulfonylmethane is a rich source of sulfur often absent in our diets. MSM is a structural component of connective tissue and assists with inflammatory disorders such as arthritis. MSM assists delivery of other nutrients into cells by making cell walls more permeable.

    The organic form of calcium citrate is important in much of the body’s enzyme activity. Calcium is required for bone density and is a primary nerve food as well as providing anti-inflammatory properties.

    Magnesium is also considered a primary nerve food and contributes to management of inflammation. Magnesium ensures metabolism of calcium by the body and helps to prevent calcium deposits in the joints that cause bursitis.

    Manganese functions in many enzymatic systems including the antioxidant SOD (superoxide dismutase) which prevents free radicals from destroying cell components. Manganese assists with inflammation.

    Low levels of zinc are associated with arthritic conditions as a result of impaired immune function. Zinc functions include stabilization of synovial membranes, antioxidant activity, collagen synthesis and control of inflammation.

    Copper helps to reduce pain and inflammation and is a component along with zinc and manganese in the action of the enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase).

    Boron is an important element in maintaining healthy bone and joint function. Boron reduces calcium lost in the urine.

    Bioprine is an alkaloid from black pepper which increases intestinal absorption and delivery of nutrients to the blood stream.

    Siberian Ginseng
    Dr. Ricketts’ CJB Plus contains Siberian ginseng for its adaptogenic, anti-rheumatic, immuno stimulant and cardiovascular properties. Ginseng assists the body with detoxification, stress and circulation.

    Fulvic Base®
    Fulvic Base is Morganics’ proprietary form of plant based minerals. 73 trace elements in Fulvic Base are easily absorbed and contribute to the electric potential and acid – alkaline balance of cells.
