If you're anything like us, you've been launching your body off of skate ramps and dirt bike jumps your entire life.
In your teens and 20's you barely thought twice about it. But after 10,000 falls from 12' onto concrete or dirt, your joints and ligaments don't bend and move as easily as they used to. Arthritis and inflammation have set in causing knee pain, back pain and osteoarthritis.
I'm here to discuss how joint supplements can be used to lubricate your joints, decrease inflammation and relieve pain from arthritis.
Old Bones Therapy has created a "Joint Care Formula" supplement that is a custom blend of ingredients designed to support healthy joints by maintaining the structure of the body's cartilage.
Our unique formula combines Glucosamine, as well as Chondroitin and Hyaluronic Acid, which aids in the metabolism of healthy connective tissue, increasing the lubrication and resiliency of cartilage. These ingredients, combined with our proprietary blend of herbs, Turmeric and Boswellia, help fight inflammation and joint pain.

Glucosamine is a natural compound found in cartilage — the tough tissue that cushions joints.
People use glucosamine sulfate orally to treat a painful condition caused by the inflammation, breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage (osteoarthritis).
Chondroitin is a substance that occurs naturally in the connective tissues of people and animals.
Taken regularly as a supplement, chondroitin is a popular treatment for osteoarthritis.
Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan or hyaluronate is a gel-like substance that is naturally present throughout the human body. In the joints, natural hyaluronic acid has several functions, including:
- Lubrication - Hyaluronic acid binds well to water, producing a viscous, jelly-like consistency. This viscous fluid provides lubrication and also acts as a shock absorber within the joint.
- Growth of Cartilage and Bone - Hyaluronic acid helps in the growth and development of joint’s cartilage and bone by promoting the growth of new cells and tissues.
- Reducing Inflammation - Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in reducing joint inflammation and pain caused by injury or tissue degeneration.
It is widely believed that Curcumin, which is the active ingredient in Turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. And for this reason, it’s frequently used as a supplement by many people to help with joint symptoms, reduce pain and improve function in people with knee osteoarthritis.
Boswellia, also known as Indian frankincense, is an herbal extract taken from the Boswellia serrata tree. Resin made from boswellia extract has been used for centuries to treat chronic inflammatory illnesses as well as a number of other health conditions.
