KALA Health's MSM / Glucosamine / Chondroitin Joint Support Combo is a combination of MSM, vegetarian glucosamine, low molecular weight chondroitin and several other ingredients, each of which have been proven to support healthy joints. The amounts and quality of each of the ingredients of MSM / Glucosamine / Chondroitin Joint Support Combo were carefully selected to maximize their supportive effect on the joints. Each of these ingredients works at different levels for optimal joint support. Combined in a coated tablet and aided by several support ingredients, MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin have a synergetic effect and enhance each other’s activities. For this reason, the glucosamine and chondroitin concentrations can be slightly less than if these ingredients are supplied separately.
Kala Health's MSM / Glucosamine / Chondroitin Joint Support Combo contains top quality ingredients of pharmaceutical grade:
OptiMSM®, the purest MSM available produced by Bergstrom Nutrition in the USA, guaranteed >99.9% pure. MSM is a donor of methyl groups and biological active sulfur, and supports healthy joints;
Regenasure® Glucoamine HCl, the only vegetarian glucosamine in the world, guaranteed >98% pure and produced in the USA by fermenting corn through a patented process. The HCl-form also is the most concentrated form of glucosamine, providing 80% elementary glucosamine (against 60% when glucosamine sulfate.2KCl is used).
ChondroPure® Chondroitin Sulfate of Pharmaceutical 'Low Molecular' Grade, produced in the USA from bovine trachea and guaranteed >90% pure when tested according to the sophisticated Enzymatic HPLC Method (Please click here for more information on Enzymatic HPLC).

KALA Health's MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin Joint Support Combo offers the following advantages:
• Taken in the recommended dosage, the tablets contain the optimal amount of top quality MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin according to the most recent scientific knowledge;
• In addition to MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin, each tablet also contains Vitamin C
Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen, elastin and other molecules that make up connective tissue and cartilage;
Vitamin C slows down the breakdown of GAGs, which form the matrix of cartilage (see column on right);
Vitamin C is the most important water soluble anti-oxidant in the body. It protects the body against the ravages caused by free radicals.
• Other important ingredients included are Manganese and Molybdenum. Both are sparse elements in the human body, nevertheless these minerals play an essential role in many metabolic processes. Manganese is known to help with the production of collagen and proteoglycans from the glucosamine and the chondroitin sulfate, while molybdenum plays an important role in the assimilation of sulfur.
Dear Dr. Ron: Thank you so much. Terri was kind enough to call me earlier also, you may already know that. She was extremely helpful. As I told Terri, I bought 3 bottles MSM/Glucosamine/Chondroitin, one for myself, one for my mom, and one for my cousin. I've had such amazing results with the tablets I'd been taking that I don't want to sacrifice anything. Others here at work are asking about it and I'm so happy to tell them that Kala Health has helped me more than physical therapy. I'm going to send as much business as I can find for you all your way. I found out about Kala Health from two of the people I work with that were giving their dogs Arthrix and had great results. If you haven't heard it lately....you're products are amazing. Thank you. Just one more statement Ron...in these times it is very difficult to find good customer service and your organization is miles ahead of many others. Thank you! We'll be doing business with you as long as I can imagine and will tell others about Kala Health. Have a good day!

MSM reduces chronic pain;
MSM reduces inflammations and the inflammatory process;
MSM normalizes the immune system, a great benefit to people who suffer from allergies;
MSM supplies sulfur to cartilage, necessary for its regeneration;
MSM improves the activity of many vitamins and other nutrients.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is organic sulfur. With increasing age the supply of sulfur in the body decreases: arthritic cartilage contains only one-third of the sulfur concentration of healthy cartilage. MSM is often considered one of the safest and most effective treatments for chronic pain. KALA Health uses OptiMSM, the purest form of MSM made by Bergstrom Corporation. Two tablets twice daily supply 1,600 mg (1.6 grams) of MSM which is sufficient as a maintenance level for most people.
Glucosamine, an amino sugar, promotes the formation and repair of cartilage. A shortage of cartilage can cause painful joint movement.
Glucosamine is an important building block of many GAGs (glycosaminoglycans), which are molecules that form the matrix of cartilage.It is derived from chitin, a substance which gives strength to the exoskeletonof crabs, lobsters, insects and spiders.
KALA Health's formula uses a vegetarian form of glucosamine, called Regenasure, made by Cargill. Two tablets twice daily supply 1,000-mg (1 gram) glucosamine, essential for the maintenance and proper functioning of cartilage, and the production of new cartilage.
The cartilage in the joints act as a spongy ‘shock absorber’. For this it needs special substances to attract fluid. Chondroitin, another natural substance made in the body, attracts fluid into the cartilage like a liquid magnet. Without this fluid, cartilage would become malnourished, thinner and more fragile.3 In this way Chondroitin protects cartilage from breakdown and also stimulates the synthesis of new cartilage, important for healthy joints.
Chondroitin works best when the molecules are small and easily taken up by the body. Cheaper forms of chondroitin are a waste of money as they are passed through the body without benefit. KALA Health's chondroitin is ChondroPure, a US made, branded form of chondroitin of the highest purity. It is guaranteed to contain in excess of 90% active ingredient, and has a small molecular size (19,000 Daltons) that allows it to be easily assimilated.
Two tablets twice daily provide 900 mg of chondroitin, the typical amount for optimal results. This dosage is also considered safe.
Manganese is an essential mineral found in large quantities in both plant and animal matter. Only trace amounts of this element can be found in human tissue, however. Manganese supports many enzyme controlled reactions, and plays an essential role in the formation of GAGs (see above). It aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones.
Low levels of manganese in the body can contribute to bone malformation and weakness. Experts estimate that as many as 37% of Americans do not get the recommended daily amounts of manganese in their diet. A few studies of people with osteoarthritis suggest that the combination of manganese supplementation taken along with glucosamine and chondroitin can reduce pain associated with the condition.
Take two tablets twice daily, preferably with meals. Dosage may vary as directed by your health care provider.
