  • AR-Encap goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation. It adds nutrients to provide relief from occasional soreness and stiffness.

    AR-Encap® combines the preeminent joint support ingredient‚ glucosamine‚ with other nutrients and botanicals that also support joint health. Glucosamine demonstrates significant joint support‚ as evidenced by numerous clinical studies. Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) also helps support joint integrity and mobility. Bromelain promotes healing after trauma.

    Thorne's Meriva® ingredient – curcumin bound to phospholipids – and boswellia both exert an antioxidant effect and help maintain a healthy cytokine balance (for a normal inflammatory response) in the joints and muscles. AR-Encap combine all of these ingredients in a single comprehensive joint support supplement.

    AR-Encap® is a comprehensive joint support formula that goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation. This formula supplies 1‚500 mg of glucosamine sulfate (suggested use – four capsules twice daily)‚ the amount used in the majority of studies – in combination with other joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.

    Glucosamine provides significant joint support‚ as evidenced by numerous clinical studies. Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) – also known as dimethyl sulfone and methyl sulfone – is an organic‚ sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of plants and provides additional joint support.

    In a study of healthy adult subjects with mild knee soreness‚ bromelain supplementation resulted in significant improvement with both 200-mg and 400-mg daily use.1 Joint mobility was also improved.

    Curcumin‚ the principal polyphenol in the Asian spice turmeric‚ exerts an antioxidant effect. Curcumin phytosome (Meriva®)‚ a compound that contains curcumin and phosphatidylcholine‚ has significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps maintain a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body.

    Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of the lipoxygenase enzymes‚ thus promoting a healthy cytokine balance throughout the body. A study of curcumin and boswellia found significant support of normal joint mobility in the group taking the botanical formula.2

    Not vegetarian.

    The ingredients of AR Encap by Thorne Research listed include shellfish, which makes these not vegetarian. Beware!


    Pros

      Shellfish.

    AR-Encap

    My son and daughter have lyme disease. Their Doctor suggested taking AR-Encap by Thorne Research to help with their stomach issues from being on long term antibiotics. Before taking AR-Encap my daughter always had stomach pains, nausea and etc after eating. AR Encap helped with this issue and eventually she had no stomach issues after eating.


    Pros

      Natural.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Now, natural pain relief beyond compare!

    Since last December I have used AR-Encap by Thorne Research when another product I had been taking fell short of my need for pain relief. I am delighted with the consistent power of this natural anti-inflammatory product having no side effects.


    Pros

      The most natural pain reliever on the market for pennies a day.

    Cons

      How could anyone dislike natural pain relief?

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Relieve Arthritis Pain

    I'm in my 70's and experienced arthritic pain in various parts of my body prior to using AR-Encap by Thorne. I've been taking Encap for about 2 years with great success with virtually no pain.


    Pros

      It works. I take 2 caps twice a day which is 1/2 the recommended doses.

    Cons

      I initially took 4 caps twice a day but had a reaction with my tongue so i reduced the dosage by half and everything works fine.

    Knee hasnt felt this good in years

    A naturopath prescribed AR-Encap along with a few other supplements for knee cartilage loss with severe pain. After about three months I noticed some improvement and the knee kept getting better. After 8 months I started working out really minimal at first. It took about a year but now the knee is almost a non-issue - just got back from spending 45 minutes on the elliptical machine. Since Ive been taking a few supplements I cant specifically say what part AR-Encap played but it certainly helped. The naturopath said its a source of high-quality glucosamine and other components.


    Pros

      Everything

    Cons

      The price

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
