Schiff(R) Introduces the Next Generation of Joint Care
Schiff Nutrition International,
Inc., a pioneer and leader in the natural supplement category and creator of
the best-selling Move Free(R) brand of joint care products, is introducing the
latest breakthrough in joint health care, new Move Free(R) Advanced. Building
on the well-studied ingredient combination of glucosamine and chondroitin, the
Move Free(R) Advanced formulation adds Uniflex(TM) and Joint Fluid which make
the product two times more effective in relieving joint pain compared to
triple strength glucosamine and chondroitin alone.
"A preliminary, independent, randomized, parallel group, double-blind,
placebo-controlled study was conducted in Miami in 2004 for eight weeks
comparing glucosamine, Uniflex(TM) and Joint Fluid in the new formula to
glucosamine and chondroitin. Adding Uniflex(TM) and Joint Fluid to
glucosamine created a potent combination of nutrients that is two times more
effective in helping joint discomfort versus glucosamine and chondroitin
alone, as measured by the medical standard WOMAC pain score. Move Free
Advanced also contains chondroitin sulfate to promote even more comfort and
mobility. Move Free(R) Advanced works in as little as seven to 14 days,
versus four to eight weeks for products containing glucosamine and chondroitin
alone," said Luke Bucci, Ph.D., vice president of research for Schiff.
Ingredients in Move Free(R) Advanced include:
* Uniflex(TM), a dual bioflavonoid antioxidant system, protects joints
from radical oxidants that accelerate the breakdown of cartilage and
joint tissues, and it helps to keep joints working better and feeling
younger. It is comprised of a patent pending, proprietary plant-based
extract having potent joint comforting properties without serious
effects on stomach linings.
* Joint Fluid is Hyaluronic Acid, a compound found naturally in synovial
(joint) fluid. Joint Fluid sends signals to the body to repair joints
and manufacture more Hyaluronic Acid, thus helping to lubricate joints.
Joint Fluid has been clinically shown to be absorbed directly into
joints when orally ingested.
* Glucosamine, a natural amino sugar produced by the body, plays an
important role in providing the building blocks for healthy cartilage.
Glucosamine promotes healthy joint function by feeding, cushioning and
nourishing cartilage. As calcium helps build strong bones, glucosamine
helps strengthen joints.
* Chondroitin, a naturally occurring nutrient in the connective tissue,
attracts water to joints, making the cartilage more elastic and better
able to absorb shocks.
According to a recent independent survey of more than 225 primary care
physicians, orthopedic surgeons and rheumatologists, nine out of 10 doctors
preferred the Move Free(R) Advanced formula over glucosamine and chondroitin
Move Free(R) Advanced is available in two formulas -- Move Free(R)
Advanced and Move Free(R) Advanced Plus MSM -- and can be found at club
stores, mass merchandisers, grocery stores, pharmacies, health food and drug
