  • Aim Frame Essentials – 120 Caps

    N$557.00

    Frame Essentials

    AIM Frame Essentials is a joint health, dietary supplement that combines four effective ingredients: glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, boswellia extract and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM).

    The human skeleton provides strength, stability and a frame to support physical movement. The ends of your bones are covered in cartilage – smooth, tough, protective tissue that acts as a shock absorber between individual bones and reduces friction.

    Joint anatomy differs significantly depending on their function. Synovial joints allow for free movement at the point where bone ends meet, for example, elbows, knees and ankles. These types of joints have a protective cushion of cartilage that provides pain-free, smooth motion at the joint. The capsule of the joint is lined with soft tissue called the synovial membrane, which produces synovial fluid. This viscous fluid lubricates the surface of bone ends protected by cartilage.

     

    • Maintains musculoskeletal health
    • Improves joint function
    • Works in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet to preserve joints and bones as you age
    • Provides a biologically active form of sulfur
    • Delivers a carbohydrate component of tissue structure

     

    Suggested use: Take 2 capsules twice per day. Best taken with meals. Avoid taking at bedtime.

    How it works:

    Healthy joints

    Human cartilage contains cellular building blocks (chondrocytes). These produce our extracellular matrix, which consists of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan).

    Collagen fibres make up 70-95% of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans lubricate and cushion our joints.

    Healthy cartilage relies on a balanced process that breaks down collagen and aggrecan and replace them both with a newly formed matrix.  If the process is disturbed, increased matrix breakdown leads to loss of cartilage and joint function.

    Healthy Bones

    Bones are dynamic, living, and growing tissues.  Representing around 90% of organic bone mass, collagen is a protein that provides bones with their flexible framework.  Calcium phosphate is deposited on this framework, adding strength, and stabilising the bone.

    Throughout a person’s lifetime, old bone tissue is broken down (bone resorption) and new tissue is added to the skeleton (bone formation).  The process is called bone remodelling, or bone turnover.  In healthy adults, bone turnover is approximately 15% of their bones a year.  As we age, the bone resorption begins to exceed bone formation.

    • Collagen helps to maintain bone mineral density (BMD) and thus prevent bone loss
    • Collagen helps to maintain bone strength and healthy bone micro-architecture
    • It helps to balance bone formation and bone breakdown
    • Collagen peptides stimulates bone building metabolism (proliferation, differentiation, and mineralisation of osteoblasts)
    • It helps to slow down the activity of bone-degrading cells (differentiation and functional osteoclasts)

    Healthy ageing

    One of the secrets behind our bodies’ health and vitality is the collagen we produce.  Collagen is a key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of all our connective tissues, such as skin, bones, muscle, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.

    It also gives our musculoskeletal system its infrastructure, which makes it essential to our mobility. With age, our bodies produce less collagen.  This process begins around the age of 30 and accelerates at 40.  The result is discomfort, high risk of fractures, less agility and possible loss of independence.  The connective tissue in our muscles consists primarily of collagen, so a similar effect occurs here.

    Age brings on a reduction of muscle mass, which affects strength, tone, flexibility, and balance. The benefit of taking collagen is effective support of joint, bone and muscle health all at once.

    Beauty from within

    The skin aging process is complex.  It is a result of a combination of environmental and physiological factors.  Being exposed to the elements takes its toll on our skin, causing a breakdown of collagen.  The body produces less collagen as we age, which means the body is less able to repair the environmental damage.

    Part of the aging process is due to dehydration. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin well-hydrated.  Collagen appears to assist stimulate hyaluronic acid production leading to better hydration of the dermis.

    Hair consists of 65-95% protein. With age, hair fibres can be weakened making them more breakable and appear less shiny.

    The main areas where collagen peptides may assist beauty:

    • Wrinkle reduction
    • Hair strength improvement
    • Decrease in collagen fragmentation
    • Skin hydration improvement.

    Sport Nutrition

    Collagen provides an essential source of protein to replenish the body’s needs during and after strenuous exercise programs.
