MACHINE MOTION INGREDIENTS
Cissus QuadrangularisHeralded far and wide for its countless benefits, cissus quadrangularis is one of the most powerful all-natural joint support supplements available. Cissus is rich in a type of plant sterol known as ketosterones. These phytochemicals are responsible for the numerous benefits of cissus supplementation. Machine Motion includes a premium-grade cissus extract standardized to 40% ketosterones.
Cissus supplementation has been well-documented to combat inflammation, relieve joint pain, and promote collagen synthesis.[1,2,3,4] This is all in addition to its ability to enhance weight loss and cholesterol levels.
Acumin™Developed by Novel Ingredients, Acumin™ is a trademarked extract of curcumin supplying 45% curcuminoids. This one-of-a-kind complex has been clinically shown to offer 5-6x greater bioavailability than conventional curcumin supplements.
Curcumin has long been used in folk medicine as a powerful, and all-natural, anti-inflammatory compound that combats both acute and chronic inflammation in the body. Curcumin accomplishes this via inhibition of Cytokine production and down-regulation of COX-2 activity, mimicking the effects of ibuprofen.[6,7]
BromelainNaturally-occurring in pineapple, bromelain is a digestive enzyme that also serves as an effective pain relief compound, too. Bromelain has been used for centuries an all-natural anti-inflammatory agent to reduce redness and swelling. Furthermore, the versatile enzyme also has shown efficacy in treating the aches and pains induced by osteoarthritis.[9,10]
Sodium HyaluronateSodium Hyaluronate is a highly bioavailable form of hyaluronic acid, a glycosaminoglycan present in connective tissue that lubricates and cushions your joints. Countless studies have shown the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid, with some dubbing it the “fountain of youth.” Treatment with hyaluronic acid can reduce joint pain, improve symptoms of osteoarthritis, and may even reduce the need for joint replacement.[11,12,13]
Q-Actin™Machine Motion utilizes one of the newest, groundbreaking joint support supplements in Q-Actin, a patented, clinically-tested extract of cucumber. Research conducted on the novel extract demonstrates it significantly improves knee pain, stiffness, and physical function in patients suffering from osteoarthritis. Doses used in the landmark study were 20mg, the exact same dose included in Machine Motion! Q-Actin is able to accomplish this by inhibit the production of TNF-?, tumor necrosis factor alpha, an inflammatory cytokine associated with a number of inflammatory diseases including osteoarthritis.[15,16] Reducing factors that promote inflammation promotes increased range of motion, decreased pain, and improved quality of life.
BioPerine®All the joint support compounds won’t do a lick of good if you’re body isn’t able to utilize them. That’s where BioPerine® comes in. This industry-leading black pepper extract improves ingredient bioavailability, ensuring maximal uptake and utilization by the body. BioPerine inhibits various enzymes preserving ingredient integrity, certifying you get all the joint pain relief possible from each and every serving of Machine Motion.
