A source of glycosaminoglycans, which are also building blocks of cartilage.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane):
An organic source of sulfur, which is necessary for the chemical bonds to form in cartilage and connective tissue.

Hyaluronic acid:
A substance in joint fluid that helps thicken it to provide good lubrication.

Several classes of antioxidants (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Quercetin, Citrus Bioflavonoids) help neutralize free radicals, the molecules that damage the body's cells, including those in joints and skin.

Yucca schidigera:
From a southwestern United States plant that has immune-system-supporting properties. It also functions as an antioxidant.
