ABOUT

Joint Care

Joint Care’s powerful ingredients help fight pain and heal joints. It works with your body to strengthen your immune system and protect you from other immune system-related ailments. This powerful formulation includes:

  • Undenatured Collagen (as 40mg of UCII®) to ensure your body’s immune system is being kind to your joints
  • Curcumin C3 Complex® (500mg), a blend of three turmeric-derived curcuminoids standardized to 95% and designed to prevent the formation of free radicals
  • Bioperine® (2.5mg) to chauffeur the curcuminoids into your bloodstream

And not all collagen and turmeric are created equally: Both UC-II and Curcumin C3 have undergone rigorous clinical studies and are patented. With intense training, our joints are put to the test along with our muscles making it crucial to care for them.

Joint Care

Pain is part of the game and even something you may purposefully seek out: Enduring pain – when training in the gym or when dieting down to subhuman levels of body fat – is part and parcel of competitive bodybuilding. By embracing this pain, it’s easy to become so familiar with it that one seemingly forgets that pain, especially joint pain, in and of itself is not the goal. In fact, joint pain can severely hamper your gains if you can’t train properly.

Granite Supplement’s Joint Care formula combines two rising stars in the joint care supplement scene (plus Bioperine® to optimize absorption):

  • Undenatured collagen (as 40mg of UCII®) to ensure your body’s immune system is being kind to your joints.
  • Curcumin C3 Complex® (500mg), a blend of three turmeric-derived curcuminoids designed to both prevent the formation and quench free radicals.
  • Bioperine® (2.5mg) Curcumin C3 Complex is coupled with Bioperine (2.5mg) to chauffeur the curcuminoids into your bloodstream2,3.

Undenatured Collagen as UCII® (40mg)

  • Because the cartilage that allows our joints to articulate freely is largely composed of collagen, specifically of the type II form4-8, it’s not surprising that common joint inflammation [a.k.a. (osteo) Arthritis] reflects the proper upkeep of this important protein9. Healthy inflammatory responses are a function of the immune system, of course, which has the formidable task of surveilling the body’s proteins, those derived from symbiotic bacteria (in the microbiome), as well as those we’ve consumed10,11.
  • Consuming type II collagen in its undenatured form (not broken down in any way) confers Immuno-tolerance10 as it passes through the gut’s “immuno-check points” called Peyer’s patches12], informing the immune system that type II collagen is not pathogenic. (This is a good thing!) In both humans13,14 and animals15-18 with arthritis, consuming undenatured collagen orally reduces arthritic symptoms, whereas direct injection of type II collagen (bypassing the Peyer’s patches) can trigger immunoreactive arthritis19,20.
  • In horses18 and dogs15,17, only very small doses of UC-II® undenatured type II collagen is enough to alleviate osteoarthritis. In a study of human subjects with pre-existing knee osteoarthritis of the knee and for whom a glucosamine/chondroitin combo was not effective, consuming UC-II® (40mg / day) for 90 days reduced knee pain and improved several indices of physical function during daily life (e.g., when walking and climbing stairs)21.
  • More impressively, UC-II may improve joint function even when you’re not aware you have joint issues! In healthy individuals, neither complaining of knee pain nor meeting diagnostic criteria for knee arthritis, 120 days of UCII ® (40mg / day) increased joint range of motion and extended the exercise time on a stepmill before reporting knee pain22. Additionally, those with osteoarthritis who already use an NSAID like acetaminophen (brand name Tylenol®) may find that undenatured collagen Type II has an additive effect in relieving symptoms23 that comes without side effects24.

Curcumin C3 Complex® (500mg)

  • Exercise in general (barring an injury, of course) is good for the joints, but most of you know full well that heavy lifting can inflame your joints and eventually take its toll25,26. Curcumin C3 Complex® was explicitly designed to both neutralize and prevent the formation of free radicals27, known to play a role in arthrtitis28-31.
  • While animal research supports Curcumin C3 Complex®’ anti-arthritic effect32, only large doses Curcumin C3 Complex® will substantially elevate blood levels33,34. For this reasons we’ve added Bioperine® (2.5mg; see below) to ensure bioavailability2,35 and that Curcumin C3 Complex® can thus inhibit of prostaglandin formation36 [which is also the mechanism of action of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain-killers like aspirin37].
  • With the 500mg of Curcumin C3 Complex® (plus 2.5mg of Bioperine®) in each dose of Joint Care, we’ve got you going in the right direction to take full advantage of the joint pain-alleviating effects of Curcumin C3 Complex®. When 1500mg / day (500mg of Curcumin C3 Complex® plus 5mg of Bioperine, three times per day) was given to mild-to-moderate sufferers of knee osteoarthritis, all measures of joint pain and physical function improved compared to placebo, and more than 80% of those all those taking Curcumin C3 Complex® voluntarily reduced their use of non-steroidal antiinflammatories38.
  • Interestingly, in this study39, unlike others where subjects have metabolic syndrome40,41, Curcumin C3 Complex® did not reduce systemic inflammatory markers. This suggests that Curcumin C3 Complex®’ effects in limiting oxidative stress is the key here41,42, or possibly even it’s ability to inhibit cyclooxygenase, and thus prostaglandin synthesis36,43-46 may be underlying its efficacy.
  • For those who might already be using Tylenol (acetaminophen) for joint pain, preliminary evidence suggests that curcuminoids like those found in C3 complex do not interfere with acetaminophen metabolism47.

Bioperine® (2.5mg)

  • When it comes to many dietary supplements, bioavailability (absorption) is the name of the game. To enhance the availability of Curcumin C3 Complex® (see above), Joint Care contains 2.5mg of Bioperine®, a black pepper extract containing 95+% piperine. By inhibiting p-glycoprotein’s actions48 and preventing glucuronidation in the gut49, piperine diminishes the intestinal barrier for many substances50 and makes them more lipid-soluble (and thus able to traverse lipid membranes). Indeed, piperine has a good record of increasing bioavailability of drugs and supplements48, including of course curcumin2,35, as well as beta-carotene51, resveratrol52, iron53, selenium54, and CoQ1055.

  3. 4 out of 5

    Top qualityDisolvability 5/5, taste 5/5 for blue crush (3/5 cherry lime), kudos for no proprietary blends, price point is competitive, hits hard and fades gradually, what's not to like? 4 out of 5 for all the pros. Minus 1 star for the cherry lime flavor which (personally) I thought was acrid and had a bad aftertaste.

    Best proteinWow so I just got the new protein a couple of weeks ago. I purchased the chocolate (my favorite flavor) and boy was I really impressed. John told me it was really good. I had no doubt it would taste good but when I mixed it with my oatmeal WOW it tasted amazing. Usually proteins leave that nasty after taste, you all know what I’m talking about. But this stuff is amazing. Zero bloat from it and of course it has the best ingredients hands down. I will never try another brand now that We have this. Wish I had protein shakes more on my plan lol.

    Best ProteinThis is the best protein I’ve had, first protein to not upset my stomach. I’m very picky with taste and this definitely knocks it out of the park! I’ve tried the Chocolate and Salted Carmel and love them both! I love that this protein blends totally smooth in just a shaker cup, normally other proteins I’ve used I had to add ice and blend in a blender to drink them. This is definitely my go to for protein!!
