Q: What are glucosamine & chondroitin sulfate?
A: They are natural substances found in and around the cells of cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate is a complex carbohydrate that helps cartilage retain water and also contains sulfur containing amino acids which are essential building blocks for cartilage. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that the body produces and distributes in cartilage and other connective tissues. These agents are needed for healthy structure and function of joints for optimum mobility.
All glucosamine and chondroitin is not the same. European pharma-grade chondroitin
is what has been shown to be effective alone and also in combination with high purity
glucosamine. Beware of non-European pharma-grade chondroitin; there is a very high risk that it can be low quality and fake.
Q: How is the glucosamine and chondroitin in Supple different than what you can buy in a store?
A: There is published research spanning decades concerning problems with the glucosamine and chondroitin sold in the United States including the use of lower quality ingredients, ineffective dosages, not meeting label claims, or using unproven sources. Supple uses the same European pharmaceutical strength chondroitin that has been studied in over 35 years of extensive research performed around the world by leading universities and scientists and has been used by over 55 million people around the world, over 35 years. Supple also delivers a very pure form of vegetarian glucosamine so people with shellfish allergies can benefit from glucosamine too.
Q: Why isn’t all glucosamine and chondroitin the same?
A: Glucosamine and chondroitin are dietary supplements in the United States. Dietary supplements are not strictly regulated by the FDA and companies are not required to deliver the same ingredients, quality or dosages as what has been clinically tested.
Q: Where does Supple’s glucosamine & chondroitin come from?
A: Supple’s glucosamine comes from an international producer of very pure vegetarian glucosamine. Supple’s European pharmaceutical grade chondroitin is derived from bovine (cow) trachea and is made in Spain. Chondroitin from bovine trachea is the most studied chondroitin. Other chondroitin derived from sharks, birds, pigs or any other form has not been rigorously studied. The Vitamin D3 in Supple is derived from wool grease (lanolin) of healthy live sheep in Europe.
Supple’s glucosamine HCL is made from a patented fermentation derived process using a naturally occurring fungal source (Aspergillus Niger). This fungal source is present and found everywhere and is safe. The fungal source is grown on corn.
Q: Is the calcium lactate gluconate used in Supple derived of vegetable or dairy?
A: The calcium gluconate lactate in Supple is derived from natural sources such as corn, molasses, wheat, sugar beet, or sugar cane using a natural purification process.
Q: Does Supple contain MSM?
A: Supple does not contain MSM.
Q: Maltodextrin – I see that ingredient in the powder but not in the ready-to-drink, why?
A: Maltodextrin is a safe and common filler used in powder formulas. Our formula delivers 100% of labeled claims. Raw materials have varying moisture content. At the time of production, we have to adjust for things such as moisture when arriving at our target weight.
Q: Gluten – Is Supple gluten free?
A: Supple is not tested to prove that it is gluten free.
Q: MSG – Does Supple contain MSG, even in its natural form?
A: MSG is not an ingredient in Supple, but Supple is not tested to prove that it is MSG-free.
Q: Where is Supple made/manufactured?
A: Supple is made in the USA in world class, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities using very strict ingredients, management and production standards.
Q: Why are there sugars in the ready-to-drink and none in the powder?
A: Fruit juice is added to the ready-to-drink which enhances the flavor and makes Supple ready-to-drink very delicious. This added fruit juice adds sugar, which is very low. There is no added fruit juice concentrate in the powder product and thus there are no grams of sugar in the powder product.
Q: Why are there different grams of Carbohydrates in the ready-to-drink versus in the Powder?
A: The carbohydrates in the ready-to-drink and powder products are very close. However, rounding is required to be done for label reporting purposes. Rounding is what resulted in these differences.
Q: Where does the sugar in Supple come from?
A: It comes naturally from the fruit blend. No sugars are added.
Q: Is Supple Vegetarian?
A: No it is not. Our chondroitin comes from bovine (cow) sources.
Q: How is Supple absorbed? In the stomach or intestines?
A: In the gut, which consists of the stomach and intestines.

Q: Is Supple Pasteurized?
A: Yes it is.
Q: Is Supple available in stores?
A: No, Supple is not sold in stores and is only available with our special offers. The ingredients in Supple are very expensive. If Supple was sold in stores, it would be too expensive for most people to afford after you factor in markups by brokers, distributors and retailers.

A: Natural European caffeine was added to give people a healthy energy boost and to provide a healthier alternative to potentially more dangerous high caffeine coffee, soda and energy drinks.
Q: Why do I have joint discomfort?
A: Our joints are our body’s ultimate shock absorbers. Each joint is cushioned by cartilage and supported by muscles, tendons and ligaments. Everyday activities, injuries, and repetitive motion sometimes places stress on joints and how they function. If you have ongoing joint discomfort, you should talk to your doctor about exploring some causes.
Q: I am a child, pregnant, may become pregnant, or am nursing. Should I use Supple?
Q: I have adult-onset diabetes; can Supple raise my blood sugar levels?
A: Supple is safe and was made with diabetics in mind. Glucosamine is an amino sugar. People with diabetes should check their blood sugar levels when taking Supple just as their doctor recommends with any product containing sugars. Each 12 oz can of Supple has only 35 calories and 4 grams of sugars.
Q: Can I take this with my other medications?
A: Yes. We are not aware of any known potential medication interactions with the key ingredients in Supple. People that have salt-sensitive hypertension: 12 oz Supple has only 135 mg of sodium, very low amounts. (Sodium is not added; it is part of the key ingredient sodium chondroitin sulfate.) If you are taking blood thinning medications, discuss with your physician and plan on checking your clotting time more often.
Q: Are there any side effects from taking the key ingredient in Supple?
A: The key ingredients in Supple have been monitored and clinically studied for many decades and there are no known dangerous side effects. The most common side effects if you have a sensitive stomach are increased intestinal gas and softened stools. If you have a sensitive stomach, drink your Supple with food initially until your body gets used to taking the powerful ingredients or try taking the powder drink mix form which many people say is easier on the stomach.
Q: Can I take Supple if I have a sulfur allergy?
A: Yes. The sulfate in chondroitin sulfate is an inorganic form that is the same as sulfate found in foods. Allergies to inorganic sulfur are non-existent. Sulfur is the third most common mineral in the body. Often people confuse sulfate with sulfa, which is a completely different molecule. About 10% of the population has allergies to sulfa drugs (this includes drugs classified as sulfonamides). People with sulfa drug allergies can safely take sulfate-containing products including chondroitin sulfate.
