Get back on track thanks to Arthritis Support!

Arthritis is a condition that involves your joints being inflamed, causing a great deal of pain and discomfort. Our Arthritis Support offers a natural alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that often becomes less effective and can sometimes have uncomfortable side effects. The ingredients in this supplement not only help to reduce pain caused by Arthritis but can protect your joints and help to reduce the risk of developing the condition. The ingredients help to lower the inflammation and can help your muscles and joints to heal after exercising or after injury, or disease. Get moving again with our Arthritis support supplement and enjoy all the benefits that this natural product has to offer.



There are 4 ingredients found in our Arthritis Support. These ingredients are MSM, Collagen Peptides, Vitamin C, and Magnesium Citrate. It comes in a powdered form that can be added to smoothies and shakes. Let’s inspect each of the ingredients on their own and see what they can do for us and why they are the perfect ingredients to help you manage your Arthritis.

First up is Collagen:

  • What is collagen, and where does it come from?
Collagen is found in nearly every part of your body but is best known to be found in the tendons, muscles, ligaments, and bones. It can be found in all the places that connect one part of your body to another. As we get older, the body starts producing less and less collagen, and the collagen that your body already has breaks down.
Collagen is a fairly popular supplement nowadays and is created from animal tissues. There is currently no vegan option for Collagen, as the product is only found in animals. However, plants contain compounds that help your body to produce collagen.
Collagen is found in two places, in your own body and in animals such as cows, pigs, and chickens, as well as fish. Collagen can even be found in the membranes inside eggshells. Our bodies create collagen via cells called fibroblasts, which can be found within the connective tissues throughout your body.
Collagen peptides are a broken-down version of collagen which have been broken down by hydrolysis. It has shorter strands than those that make up collagen and this means that collagen peptides are easier for your body to absorb.
  • Did you know these interesting facts about collagen?
Did you know that Collagen and Vitamin C go together? Collagen and Vitamin C together do more for your skin than either of these supplements can alone. You use Vitamin C to create collagen. It helps your body to create the fibroblast cells that help your body to produce collagen. Vitamin C also helps to protect the pathways that your body uses to transport collagen throughout your body. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C also stabilize and protect the collagen that is already in your body, ensuring that you hold on to the collagen for as long as possible.
Most collagen supplements, including the one from Skinny Maverick, are made with collagen peptides. Collagen peptides are broken down into smaller chains of amino acids than collagen, which makes them easier for the body to absorb. Through a process called hydrolysis, collagen is broken down and then dried. Hydrolysis is just a fancy way of saying boiling.
Potential benefits of collagen supplements.
  • Collagen may help to keep your bones healthy.
Most of our bones and the connective tissues between our bones contain collagen. Collagen is important to the proper functioning of your joints and when this collagen is broken down and the body has trouble producing more, the risks of developing bone and joint-related conditions such as Osteoporosis rise. Collagen helps to increase bone mass density, which is important in maintaining the health of your bones and lowers your risk of developing bone-related conditions as you age.
  • Collagen supplements may help to replace that which is lost during aging.
As you get older, your body starts producing less and less collagen. The collagen that is already in your body also breaks down, meaning that you end up with less and less collagen in your body, increasing your risk of developing bone and joint conditions like Arthritis. Supplementing your collagen intake as your age can replace that which is lost, and help to maintain the overall health of your skin, bones, and connective tissues.
  • Collagen may ease joint pain.
Joint pain can be a real pain in the knee. Especially after strenuous work and exercise. Joint injuries can also hamper your exercise goals. Collagen has shown some anti-inflammatory properties and can help your body to repair damage caused by daily exercise or injury. A 2017 study showed that taking collagen peptides every day for twelve weeks reduced joint pain during exercise. It may also help to reduce pain caused by Arthritis and Osteoporosis by building up the missing cartilage.

Next up is MSM:

  • MSM is an impressive compound.
MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is a source of Sulfur and is an organosulfur compound. It is found in fruits, veggies, grains, meats, milk, and even in the urine of animals in tiny amounts. You also get MSM when dimethyl sulfoxide (a chemical found in low quantities in milk, beer, and coffee) oxidizes (or breaks down) in the body. It goes by a few other names that mean little to an average joe. These names are dimethyl sulfone, DMSO2, and methyl sulfone.
  • Did you know?
MSM is a source of sulfur, and is one of the most abundant minerals in your body and is found in your skin, bones, muscles, and hair. It helps to keep your skin bouncy and sulfur bonds aid in maintaining the shape of muscles, skin, and bones. Sulfur also protects cells from damage, especially skin cells, by aiding in the production of glutathione (an important antioxidant ).
Sulfur is found in proteins, which contain about 3-6% of sulfur amino acids. It can also be found in garlic, onions, broccoli, legumes, and asparagus. The easiest and fastest way to increase the amount of sulfur in your diet is to take a supplement that has MSM in it.
Benefits of MSM
  • MSM may reduce pain associated with Arthritis.
MSM contains both Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce pain and discomfort related to Arthritis and other joint-related conditions. The anti-inflammatory capabilities reduce pain by reducing the inflammation that causes pressure and pain in the joints. The antioxidants can prevent the inflammation from developing in the first place, by reducing oxidative stress that causes inflammation.
  • MSM may provide some allergy relief.
Spring is one of my favorite seasons, but the allergies have always been a pain in my sinuses. Allergic Rhinitis happens when your immune system overreacts to certain triggers, such as pollen, in my case. When your immune system is triggered, it releases antibodies that release chemicals into cells. These chemicals cause the wonderful allergic reactions we know and love so much. MSM can reduce the inflammation caused by the reaction and might reduce the number of chemicals that are released during an allergic reaction, which helps to alleviate allergies and can even help to reduce the risk of triggering allergies in the first place. Go MSM!
  • MSM may help to improve your immune system.
MSM may help to prove useful for the immune system by reducing inflammation and boosting your Glutathione levels. As we already know, inflammation can cause havoc in the human body. The anti-inflammatory abilities, as well as the antioxidant abilities, can help to improve your immune system by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation that can wear down this important system. This is all thanks to the sulfur content of MSM. it helps to stimulate the production of white blood cells. White blood cells act as the defense force of the body that attacks viruses and bacteria to prevent you from getting sick. Sulfur also helps the immune system by helping the body regenerate cells, and these cells work more effectively.

Vitamin C is next on the list:

  • What exactly is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is also known as Ascorbic acid and is a very important nutrient in the body. Without it, your body is in for a very nasty ride. Vitamin C is found in many foods, especially fruit and vegetables, such as oranges and lemons.
In the older days, when sea voyages and exploration were still fairly new, sailors would often get sick and even die during their long voyages. They suffered from Scurvy. It was later discovered that Scurvy was caused by a vitamin C deficiency. Sailors began making sure that they had lemon juice on board during long voyages, even before Vitamin C was identified. Scurvy is relatively rare in developed countries nowadays but it is still possible to develop the condition in third world countries where malnutrition and starvation is a problem, as well as in individuals who don’t eat a lot of fruit or vegetables.
Today, vitamin C is known for a few other benefits. Most popular is its ability to boost your immunity and prevent colds and flu. Vitamin C plays a variety of roles in the body, from helping to heal wounds to helping your body to produce collagen.
Since Vitamin C is so important, why don’t we look at some things we know about it?
  • Did you know these facts about Vitamin C?

The levels of vitamin C in your body can be a pretty good indicator of stress that your body may be experiencing. Vitamin C is one of the first vitamins that you lose when your body is stressed. When I say that your body is stressed, I not only refer to the daily stress that you endure while going to work and dealing with stressful situations but also what your body endures when you are sick or living an unhealthy lifestyle. Unhealthy habits, such as excessive drinking and smoking, also deplete the vitamin C in your body.

Vitamin C is destroyed when cooking food at high temperatures or for an extended amount of time. Vitamin C is also water-soluble, so it is easily absorbed into the water. It is thus easily lost when cooking with water that evaporates or is discarded during cooking. If you want to preserve the vitamin C in the foods that you are preparing, I recommend a faster cooking method at lower temperatures, such as stir-frying. You can also make sure not to use water in your cooking, or to incorporate the water into the food.
Individuals who have experienced physical trauma, injury, or illness will need slightly more Vitamin C than healthy individuals, smokers and alcoholics will also most likely need an extra dose of vitamin C. Conditions that cause you to lose fluids such as fever or prolonged diarrhea will also cause you to lose Vitamin C.
Vitamin C may have some impressive benefits
  • Vitamin C may help to improve recovery time for colds and flu.
Despite what most of us think, Vitamin C does not cure a common cold or the flu, but It may help to reduce the time that you have to suffer from the sniffles. Vitamin C can also help to prevent complications from colds and flu, such as lung infections, ensuring that the cold remains just a cold.
  • Vitamin C is a powerful Antioxidant.
With all the pollutants in the air and water around us only increasing, it is no wonder that Antioxidants have become a popular way to reduce the toxins that build in our bodies as time goes on. These toxins and pollutants create free radicals as our bodies metabolize them. These free radicals in our body cause what we call Oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has caused chronic diseases such as certain types of cancer, such as Breast and Lung Cancer. Reducing the amount of oxidative stress may improve your quality of life and could help to prevent chronic health problems. Lowering oxidative stress could reduce inflammation and boost your immunity, which helps your body fight off a wide variety of illnesses.
  • Vitamin C may help your body to absorb more iron.
Anemia is normally caused when you have an iron deficiency. Iron is needed to create red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout your body. There are different forms of anemia, but for now, let’s focus on the one caused by a deficiency in iron.
There are two kinds of iron and are categorized by where they come from. Plant-based iron is called Non-heme iron and is said to be more easily absorbed in the body when taken with Vitamin C. Then there is Heme iron, which is found in meat and is more easily absorbed in the body even without Vitamin C.

Let’s take a peek at the last ingredient, Magnesium Citrate:

What do we know about Magnesium Citrate?
Magnesium citrate is a natural mineral that plays a fairly important role in many bodily functions, such as those in your muscles or nerves. It is considered a laxative as it increases water in your intestines.
Benefits of Magnesium Citrate.
  • Magnesium Citrate may help to ease constipation.
Magnesium Citrate is commonly used as a laxative. Constipation is a common condition among adults, it may be caused by a poor diet or by underlying medical conditions. Some medications may also cause constipation, especially medications used over a longer term. Magnesium Citrate may offer a natural way to get your bowels moving again.
  • Magnesium Citrate may help to improve the strength of your bones.
Calcium and magnesium form a very important part of the development and maintenance of healthy bones. Magnesium Citrate helps your body to move calcium through your cells. Magnesium helps to increase the density of your bones and can prevent the onset of bone degradation conditions such as Osteoporosis. In the Arthritis support supplement, Magnesium Citrate may help to reduce the risk of developing the condition.
  • Magnesium Citrate may improve your quality of sleep.
Magnesium Citrate may help your body to relax since magnesium is an electrolyte that helps to support your muscles and nerves. Because magnesium could help your muscles to relax, it could help to ease cramps and muscle spasms, as well as ease the pain that comes with these conditions. In terms of Arthritis support, Magnesium Citrate may help to ease pain caused by tense muscles and could help you sleep better.
