Blackmores Joint Formula with Glucosamine & Chondroitin combines the most scientifically validated form of glucosamine with chondroitin, manganese and boron for joint nutrition. Blackmores Joint Formula with Glucosamine & Chondroitin helps to increase joint mobility, reduce cartilage wear, relieve joint pain due to osteoarthritis and provide lubrication and nutrition to the joints.
Glucosamine, chondroitin, manganese and boron, have been specially selected for the benefits they provide to the joints and can provide relief from various symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of cartilage. As we get older the 'wear and tear' effects of everyday life may cause degenerative changes in the cartilage, making it more susceptible to breakdown and damage. Ageing decreases the ability to restore and synthesize normal cartilage.
Glucosamine is a natural component of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. It is a major building block of the substances that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine can be an important source of this vital component of cartilage as we age, supporting normal cartilage function and joint mobility.
Chondroitin, like glucosamine, is a natural component of cartilage. Chondroitin and glucosamine appear to work together in the synthesis of cartilage. Chondroitin is also involved in the lubrication and nutrition of the joint, and helps the joints to resist compression.
Manganese and boron are minerals which appear to play important roles in joint health. Manganese supports the production of cartilage and bone. Boron plays a role in the chemical make-up of bones and joints.

The Intense Hawaiian Sun
Spirulina Pacifica is grown at 19 degree N altitude, where the tropical sun beats down upon our cultures year round. Spirulina Pacifica thrives unharmed by producing an abundance of mixed carotenoids and antioxidant enzymes.
A Superior Strain
Growing conditions unique to Hawaii, have given birth to a distinctive beta-carotene rich strain and the highest level of mixed carotenoids of any Spirulina in the world.
Ocean Source Minerals
Nutrient-rich ocean water pumped from a depth of 2,000 feet provides more than 90 minerals including calcium, magnesium and trace elements.
Ocean Chill Drying
Patented Ocean Chill Drying technology eliminates oxidation of carotenes and fatty acids, ensures highest level of mixed carotenoids and phytonutrients.
Cold Process Tablets
The process is heat-free which produces healthy tablets with little or no loss of nutrients.
Glass bottles protect Stazen’s beta-carotene and other nutrients. Studies show that within1 month of packaging in plastic, some nutrients (Beta carotene included) have lost 20% of their potency. In glass, negligible amounts have been lost. Also, oxygen molecules are so small that they can go right through plastic bottles, ruining an anti-oxidant’s value. Glass does not permit this.
ISO 9002 Certified
Internationally recognized standards of quality guarantee consistency and reliability. Cyanotech was the first micro algae company to be certified compliant with ISO 9002-94 standards.
