Schiff(R) Introduces the Next Generation of Joint Care

Source: www.prnewswire.com

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

stores nationwide.
