Several years ago, Olympian Labs developed Glucosalage SO4, the most advanced natural formulation for use in the treatment of arthritis. Now there is Glucosalage SO4 Extra Strength. This powerful joint formula contains a unique combination of Shark Cartilage, Glucosamine Sulfate and Cat’s Claw, along with added enzymes and rare botanicals that help fight the battle against common joint disorders and pain.
As a nutritional supplement, Shark Cartilage is renowned for providing potent support for the maintenance of healthy joints and cartilage. Shark Cartilage is a natural source of proteoglycans, compounds responsible for building and strengthening the ground substance of cartilage. In particular, shark cartilage contains chondroitin sulfate, one of the most potent proteoglycans known.
The anti-inflammatory effects of Cat's Claw have proven beneficial in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, bursitis and gout. As an antioxidant, it also helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Its beneficial effects in treating arthritis pain may also be due, in part, to its ability to cleanse the digestive tract and aid in removing toxins from the body. Cat’s Claw has also been known to prevent auto immune dysfunction.
Glucosamine Sulfate functions as the primary building block for proteoglycans, large molecules in cartilage that give it buffering properties. When taken orally, Glucosamine Sulfate is absorbed readily into the system and can be traced to cartilage as soon as four hours after consumption. Similar to non-steroid, anti-inflammatory drugs, Glucosamine Sulfate has been shown to have unique anti-inflammatory effects. Additionally, in some laboratory tests, the supplement demonstrated a protective effect on the cartilage as well. These studies suggest that Glucosamine Sulfate may inhibit the breakdown of cartilage and may have the potential to help build-up cartilage.

When cartilage becomes worn, exposed bones can rub together and painful symptoms of joint degeneration, like osteoarthritis, may appear. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, including those throughout the spine. Conventional medicine does not yet have a proven treatment to stop or slow the progression of osteoarthritis or any other joint disorders. For a complete balanced formula with synergistic ingredients, insist on Glucosalage SO4 Extra Strength, from Olympian Labs.
