Joint Vibrance provides cartilage-building cells called chondrocytes with the proper nutrients necessary for construction of new cartilage and synthesis of hyaluronic acid. It is the most comprehensive formula to nutritionally support healthy joint function. The entire formula is truly remarkable, and provides sound nutritional support for joint health.
Before we are born, chondrocytes work rapidly to build protection into our developing skeletons. Then we are born, grow, and age. The older we become, the slower chondrocytes work.
As chondrocyte activity flags over time, they eventually fail to adequately compensate for the daily wear and tear placed on joints by an active lifestyle. As a result, nearly everyone has some degree of cartilage breakdown by the age of 32 to 35. For centuries it was thought that the gradual deterioration made joint pain and loss of mobility an inevitable fact of aging.
Today’s science has shown us that the function of chondrocytes can be sustained as long as their nutritional requirements are met. Cartilage can indeed be brought back to greater levels of health, strengthened and thickened if proper nutrients are supplied.
There is one controlling principle in the effort to rebuild cartilage: Some cartilage with viable chondrocytes must remain in the joint in order for repair to proceed. If prior joint surgeries have removed all cartilage, or if all cartilage in the joint has been worn completely away, then there would be no chondrocytes on site that could initiate the reconstruction process.
But most damaged joints do retain a good measure of cartilage. They can benefit from Joint Vibrance.
Two types of hydrolyzed collagen in Joint Vibrance serve as the backbone of the formula. Human clinical trials have shown that after six weeks of consuming 7 to 10 grams of type 1 collagen, or 1 to 2 grams of type 2 collagen, new cartilage could be detected by x-ray examination of the joints. Joint Vibrance version 4.0 supplies both type 2 and type 1 collagen.
To understand why they are so important, you must understand that cartilage is made up of a mass of collagen fibers held together in a proteoglycan matrix or glue. (That glue is primarily synthesized from chondroitin sulfate A.) The collagen in cartilage – type 2 collagen – is slightly different in its composition than type 1 collagen found in bone, skin, tendon, blood vessel walls, and organs.
Supplemental type 2 collagen directly benefits cartilage synthesis. Type 1 collagen aids the synthesis of cartilage, supports bone health, and supports the integrity of tendons.
Cartilage deterioration is often accompanied by bone deterioration. Since bone is composed of 30% to 36% type 1 collagen, it makes sense to provide nutritional support not only to cartilage but also to bone in a dietary supplement targeted for joint health. Tendons also rely on type 1 collagen for health. The type 1 collagen in Joint Vibrance will help maintain the integrity of the stabilizing tendons wrapped across joints. Joint Vibrance then, does not just seek to build cartilage, but expands past that role to improve the health of all components of the joint.
CSA & Glucosamine & Hyaluronic acid
Chondroitin sulfate A, with a little help from the other glycosaminoglycans in Joint Vibrance, is fashioned by chondrocytes into the sticky protein-sugar (proteoglycan) matrix, or glue, that holds all the collagen fibers together to form cartilage.
Glucosamine, a popular supplement for joint health, is converted to hyaluronic acid by chondrocytes. Each molecule of hyaluronic acid contains 5 molecules of water, giving it a very large, slippery structure. Its goal is to escape the chondrocyte where it was made, and slowly work its way out through the cartilage to take its place in synovial fluid. Along the way, the glucosamine that has now become hyaluronic acid acts to rehydrate cartilage, giving it greater cushioning power. In addition, Joint Vibrance delivers 264 mg of natural hyaluronic acid from chicken sternum. This is intended to support and replenish the hyaluronic acid content of synovial fluids in every joint.
But it takes more than glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid to provide first class nutritional support to chondrocytes.
Silica from horsetail contributes the element silicon to connective tissue, giving them strength and stability. It is found in precisely the tissues we are discussing here: bone, cartilage, and tendons (as well as skin and blood vessels) helping to make them strong.
Antioxidants and Joint Function
Redness, and swelling in sore, aching joints is often characterized by oxidative damage to cells in the affected area. White blood cells (leucocytes) and macrophages, immune cells that travel through tissues looking for damage to clean up, utilize free radicals to dismantle the cellular debris they ingest as part of their cleanup work. Free radicals, inadvertently released during the process, run amok, inflicting some damage to healthy tissue surrounding the original site of injury. Antioxidant agents can help control these biochemical events.
Grape seed extract, Curcuminoids, ApresFlex® Boswellia serrata extract and bromelain extracted from pineapple stems, in Joint Vibrance, are intended to corral and quench the free radicals that participate in joint inflammation. Grape seed extract also helps bind broken collagen fibers in connective tissues (e.g. ligaments, tendons, skin etc.)
ApresFlex® concentrates AKBA, the acronym for 3-O-Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid. AKBA is the most active compound of Boswellia serrata extracts. In the biochemical cascade that creates redness & swelling at the cellular level, AKBA is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme, 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). 5-LOX is a key enzyme in the synthesis of inflammatory cell messengers (leukotrienes) that are made from the ubiquitous omega-6 fatty acid, arachidonic acid. The dose of ApresFlex® required to quell the manufacture of inflammatory leukotrienes is just 100 mg. That is what you will find in each serving of Joint Vibrance 4.0.
But Joint Vibrance does not stop there. It contains a full gram of methyl sulfonyl methane, or MSM. This ingredient supports the re-synthesis of flexible disulfide bonds in connective tissue, including tendons and ligaments of the joint. The goal is to support overall flexibility and ease of movement.
Disulfide bonds work like hinges in a door. They contain two sulfur molecules, and predominate in the connective tissue of infants, and children. Those disulfide bonds tend to be replaced by stiffer, protein bonds as we age. It has been suggested that the replacement of disulfide bonds by protein bonds is due to a chronic, subclinical deficiency of sulfur throughout our lifetimes. Whether or not that is true, we do know that supplementing the diet with MSM can help increase again the number of flexible disulfide bonds in connective tissue.
Minerals and enzymes
In order for new synthesis of cartilage to take place within chondrocytes, certain enzymes are required. You can look at enzymes as miniature carpenters. These are the agents within cells that catalyze the chemical reactions that build tissue and keep us alive. An enzyme is made up of three primary components. One is a protein fraction; another is a vitamin or vitamin metabolite; and the last essential component is a mineral. As soon as the mineral takes its place, the enzyme comes alive and can do its work. It is somewhat like sticking the key into a car’s ignition, and giving it a turn.
Joint Vibrance includes a selection of minerals that are known to be required by the chondrocytes’ enzymes responsible for cartilage synthesis. This helps assure that enzymes can be synthesized within the chondrocytes when they are needed, and then get to work on schedule to build new cartilage.
Cartilage-building chondrocytes are lodged deep inside cartilage which is hidden away behind a protective synovial membrane inside the ligaments that bind the joint together. Wrapped over the joint are muscles and their tendons, providing extra stability. Although chondrocytes never lose the ability to do their job, nutrients reach them only by slow, passive diffusion through the synovial membrane and into synovial fluid lubricating the joint. That is why it is important to use Joint Vibrance daily, causing a steady, regular flow of nutrients to the ends of the capillaries that end at the barrier of the synovial membrane.
As we said at the start, no other joint health formula is as complete as Joint Vibrance.

Maximum Vibrance® delivers a meal’s worth of high protein, almost no fat, plus a Paleolithic dose of micronutrients. What is meant by “a Paleolithic dose of micronutrients?” The term means that Maximum Vibrance® will feed the human body a broad and rich range of vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, and nutritional co-factors at levels that closely match the high requirements of the ancient, Paleolithic biochemistry that resides in each of us.
We are programmed to need more micronutrients than our modern food can supply. When we don’t get enough of them – and there are thousands – biological systems falter or may break down entirely. Immunity, growth, maturation, healing, cardiac health, skeletal health, and a broad number of body systems may begin to function poorly. Maximum Vibrance® should prevent those events that too often draw down the vitality of too many persons.
Maximum Vibrance® comes closer than any other dietary supplement to being the singular product one may take in place of all other supplements. The only group of essential nutrients absent from the formula is the omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, technology has not yet developed a stable form of powdered omega-3s. Rest assured, when it becomes available it will find its way into our product.
Maximum Vibrance® marries fully balanced vegetable protein to certified organic vitamins and minerals of plant origin, and then blends them into a mass of specially selected and certified organic plant foods that provide a complete array of nutrients necessary for optimal health.
Astaxanthin, lycopene, beta-carotene and a host of botanical extracts push the protective antioxidant power of Maximum Vibrance® to, well, maximum levels. The organic cereal grass juice powders, spirulina, ample chlorella, vegetables and fruits deliver broad nutrition and effective detoxification. Our classically powerful blend of 25 billion probiotics per serving from 12 strains of beneficial bacteria, are here too, just as they are in Green Vibrance®.
Use two scoops (enclosed in the jar) for a complete meal replacement or one scoop for a nutritious snack. Either way, the pleasant taste of Maximum Vibrance® permits its use in any beverage from water through juices to almond milk, or any smoothie.
Maximum Vibrance® contains 120 ingredients which include 80 plants, 26 antioxidants, 6g of fiber, 7 servings of fruits and vegetables, 7 vegetable based digestive enzymes, 23g of protein and so much more!
Maximum Vibrance® is the most comprehensive nutritional multi-supplement you will find anywhere in the world. It’s more than a super food, it’s a Futurefood!
Human vitality can be described as the combined vitality – what we call “Vibrance” — of each cell in the body. Green Vibrance provides trace nutrients that should help each cell to function at peak efficiency. When we push each cell toward peak efficiency through diet and supplementation, the result may be increased energy and endurance, greater clarity of thought, more robust immunity, and a general shift in all bodily functions toward the ideal.
Green Vibrance taken daily drives us toward these goals by addressing some very basic and essential biological requirements.
1.) A healthy, efficient gastrointestinal tract.
2.) Sufficient quantities of a complete group of healthful nutrients, and
3.) Nutrients delivery to all cells of the body, even those at the periphery of the capillaries’ reach.
Under these influences, optimal health can be achieved, manifested by a strong immune system, sustained energy production, and systems that run smoothly and cleanly.
A nutritional formula should have a well-defined purpose in order to deliver true value to the consumer, and delivering true value is the goal of Vibrant Health. A formula’s components should be present at potencies that will achieve the stated goal.
The Green Vibrance formula grows from the concepts that:
1.The modern diet fails to supply enough micronutrients to support optimal health
2.The ancient biochemistry inside us, which hasn’t changed in 40,000 years, expects to be fed high nutrient density with each calorie of food ingested
3.The body can heal itself if given proper nutritional support
Green Vibrance is designed as a concentrated, nutrient-dense food from vegetable sources that is meant to:
Support a healthy digestive tract, thereby improving nutrient absorption;
Deliver trace nutrients at Paleolithic concentrations (far higher than found in modern diets);
Improve circulation and cardiovascular health in order to deliver those nutrients to every cell of the body;*
Support a vigorous and efficient immune system;
Support directly or indirectly the other body systems (i.e. musculoskeletal, neurological, integumentary (skin), respiratory, urinary, endocrine, cardiovascular/circulatory, digestive, reproductive and immune)
Nutrient density refers to the ratio of micro- nutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, etc.) to macro-nutients (i.e. protein, fat and carbohydrate). Relative to the amount of protein, fat and carbohydrate in the foods we eat today, our ancestors commonly received far greater amounts of micro- nutrients. Human biochemistry adapted to that ancient food supply with its greater nutrient density. It is that same, ancient biochemistry that attempts to run us today.
But today something is missing. Indeed, statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, World Health Organization (WHO) and regulatory agencies in countries around the globe, verify a precipitous drop in nutrient density within our common food supply in just the last forty years. The loss of trace nutrients is so great as to remove any argument that dietary supplementation may be optional. We firmly believe supplementation is mandatory in order to achieve optimal health.
Green food supplements, if properly formulated, can provide astounding nutrient density. They can, in effect, return our dietary intake of micro- nutrients to something more closely approximating the richness of our ancestral, Paleolithic diet.
Nutrients in their natural state are highly bioavailable. Green Vibrance delivers a multitude of nutrients that can be used by each cell to support efficient cellular metabolism, and maintain health.
