Due to it’s universally beneficial effects, Osteo-C® has the ability to address the needs of all individuals, from those with low-to-average activity levels to the competitive athlete. The ability of Osteo-C® to support recovery, promote a healthy inflammation response, and support the health of connective tissues of your body is second to none.* Osteo-C® has the ability to mobilize fibroblasts and chondroblasts to accelerate the process of regeneration in these tissues and may therefore support the health of cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.*
The Basics of OSTEO-C™
• Promotes nutrient delivery into connective tissue.*
• Speeds recovery by supporting a healthy cortisol balance.*
• Helps support mobility and joint lubrication.*
• Supports joint lubrication*
• Promotes healthy connective tissue*
• Improved mobility and recovery in connective tissue*
What Makes Osteo-C® the Most Effective JOINT SUPPORT on the Market?
There are many extraordinary benefits to taking Osteo-C®; Osteo-C® contains several important phytochemical compounds that, when ingested, may help support the health of connective tissues.* Tetracyclic triterpenoids (saponins) are probably the most important of these phytochemicals, as they exert a marked tissue-strengthening effect, and are responsible for the vast majority of the connective tissue-supporting action of Osteo-C®.* These triterpenoids bind receptor sites associated with tissue rebuilding processes, and have been suggested to enhance the process of connective tissue remodeling.* Vitamin C is also important in this process, because it also competes for glucocorticoid sites (it has an anti-catabolic action), thus further reducing the amount of cortisol that can bind to any given receptor.* Because Osteo-C® is so versatile, dosages vary greatly, depending on the desired effect from the compound, and the anabolic dosage is higher than the therapeutic dosage.
CISSUS & VITAMIN C
Cissus quadrangularis is a unique, versatile herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Native to the warmer climates of Ceylon and India, it is suggested in Ayurvedic texts for supporting health, (1) and supporting a healthy stress response.* (4) Several unpublished case studies and large amounts of empirical data also suggest that taking cissus may help support tendon, ligament, joint, and cartilage health, while helping to support a healthy inflammatory response (Applied Nutriceuticals® Empirical Research).* Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important compound in immune function and tissue repair. It is required for the synthesis of important neurotransmitters, amino acids, and the synthesis of connective tissues (8). Vitamin C also has strong antioxidant properties, enhances iron absorption, and is needed for the formation of cholesterol-based hormones (8). The Vitamin C contained in Osteo-C is important because it converts proline to hydroxyproline, the main substance needed for the formation of collagen, which is a very important structural element in tissue remodeling (8,11).
