Summit Joint Performance - How It Works
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
Summit Joint Performance® is the purest form of chondroitin sulfate ever developed. It is an organically derived, low molecular weight compound, and is the most effective and safest chondroitin product available on the market today.
Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical that is normally found in cartilage around joints in the body.
Summit was originally developed for use in human corneal transplant surgeries. Doctors and scientists were looking for a product that would reduce inflammation in the eye after surgery.
Later, after additional research, it was discovered to have incredible effects on the joints of horses and dogs.
DRAMATICALLY REDUCE JOINT INFLAMMATION
In clinical studies conducted in conjunction with Cornell University and Pathogens Laboratories, Summit has been shown to dramatically reduce inflammation in all horses tested.
In just 72 hours, over 80% of cases had a noticeable change in the quality and viscosity of their intra-articular joint fluid. As a result, Summit has several highly beneficial properties:
- Decrease or even eliminate pain
- Increase mobility
- Improve the cushioning properties of cartilage pads in joints.
Summit is not a painkiller and does not ‘cover up’ symptoms. Instead, as a molecular building block of the cartilage itself, it actually helps to repair, renew and protect joints within 24 hours of the first dose.
WHY CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS?
The rationale behind the use of chondroitin sulfate is based on the belief that osteoarthritis is associated with a local deficiency or degradation of natural substances, including internal chondroitin sulfate. The beneficial effects of chondroitin sulfate in patients with osteoarthritis are likely the result of a number of reactions.
Chondroitin sulfate’s anti-inflammatory activity can contribute to the stimulation of the synthesis of proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid and decrease the catabolic activity of chondrocytes by inhibiting the synthesis of proteolytic enzymes, nitric oxide and other substances that contribute to cartilage matrix damage and cause the death of articular chondrocytes.
RELIABLE JOINT TREATMENT
The incredibly low occurrence of adverse reactions during numerous clinical studies around the world proves Summit to be one of the safest treatments for osteoarthritis ever developed.* * Studies using chondroitin sulfate to treat osteoarthritis, inflammation, and pain in pregnant animals have not yet been performed.
