Frequently Asked Questions
What are glycosaminoglycans and how do they help performance?
Glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs for short) are simply an umbrella category for a range of familiar compounds including collagen, hyaluronic acid, heparin and chondroitin. The serve a wide variety of biological functions, but most notably, serve as a key foundational player to musculoskeletal health – playing a pivotal role in the protection and maintenance of joints.
Why do my joints need protection?
Rigorous and frequent exercise, particularly in high impact sports has the potential to cause significant wear and tear. If left unaddressed, the consistent depletion of bone mineral mass can lead to either clinical or pre-clinical osteoporosis symptoms, including pain, stiffness, swelling and increased fragility.
What is NEM® and 5-LOXIN®?
NEM® is a potent source of glycosaminoglycans, and is sustainably sourced from the delicate inner membrane found in used chicken eggshells, using organic materials that would otherwise be biological waste. 5-LOXIN® is a patented, clinically-studied boswellia extract. The principal bioactive compounds in Boswellia are boswellic acids, AKBA. Both have undergone significant clinical testing for their role in joint mobility and cartilage protection.
When is the best time to take MOTION ARMOUR for performance outcomes?
The benefits of fish oil come from longer term and consistent use. They can be taken any time of day, but the fats are best absorbed in conjunction with fats in a meal. Morning and evening meals make this easy and consistent.
I have been blown away at the effects of MOTION ARMOUR. Less niggles and aches for sure. As someone who wants to run long term this is a small investment I am happy to pay. Highly recommend!
Not going to lie...Always tough to figure out what's making you feel good when you change lots of things. But I've simply started taking Motion Armour and the Triple Magnesium tablets and I've never felt better, nor slept better. Everything feels like it should and not "oh man is this now a problem I need to be aware of" (lol). Both will be ever-stayers in my recovery program
You know it’s a great product when you can no longer feel your knees grinding! Highly recommend!
This stuff will give you new legs to run on and all time recovery. Can’t run with out it
