AR-Encap is a comprehensive joint support formula from Thorne Research that goes well beyond simple glucosamine supplementation. This formula supplies the recommended daily dose of glucosamine in combination with joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.

  • Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM)
  • Curcumin
  • Glucosamine
  • Boswellia
  • Devil's Claw
Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and animals, including humans. MSM is already well-known for its joint health benefits.

Curcumin, the principal polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric, exerts potent antioxidant effects. Curcumin Phytosome is a compound containing curcumin and pure phosphatidylcholine. This compound has demonstrated significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps support the body's normal inflammatory response. Several studies suggest that it might ease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, like pain and inflammation.

Glucosamine can provide significant joint support, as evidenced by numerous clinical studies.

In addition to glucosamine sulfate, MSM, and curcumin, AR-Encap contains the botanicals Boswellia and devil's claw. Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting the body's normal inflammatory response. Extracts of devil's claw have been found to exert significant joint support in animal studies. In a double-blind study, an herb/nutrient formula, whose main ingredients were Boswellia and curcumin, resulted in significant support of already normal joint mobility in the active treatment group compared to placebo.

Usage of Thorne Research AR-Encap:
Take 4 capsules one to two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner. AR-Encap contains glucosamine derived from shellfish. AR-Encap contains curcumin phytosome, a plant extract complexed with phosphatidylcholine, which is derived from soy. Phosphatidylcholine contains no soy protein. There are no other soy-based ingredients in AR-Encap.

to a friend

 Clinical Review:
In my practice, I see patients every day that suffer from disc herniations, spinal stenosis and other arthritic conditions. We have recommended this product because it is very effective in helping to reduce the inflammatory process. It contains glucosamine sulfate and MSM, which are the raw materials needed to help rebuild the discs and cartilage surfaces of joints. I have used this product myself for several years and find it is very effective in reducing joint stiffness and pain.
This product contains Cox-2 inhibitors which help to reduce pain and inflammation.
