JoMo Joint Nutrition for Athletes
If you are an Athlete, Weekend Warrior or Just Love Sports, You need JoMo!
Athletes need JoMo to support joint and bone health and to protect and lubricate cartilage, allowing them to "stay in the game" longer.*
At some point, most athletes and weekend warriors will suffer some form of joint pain or injury. JoMo was formulated to provide maximum strength support for joints and cartilage, as well as the essential building blocks of cartilage, thereby strengthening the joints against injury.* JoMo includes 2000mg of glucosamine and 1200mg of chondroitin in one of the highest strength liquid combinations available for joint relief. JoMo also contains type II collagen for cartilage support, growth and lubrication, as well as vitamin C & D, pomegranate and black cherry for inflammation support and immunity protecton.*
The active anti-inflammatory antioxidants in pomegranate and black cherry provide relief for athletes whose joints are subject to daily wear and tear, or those rehabilitating after an accident or injury. And it's all natural! So athletes can be confident that they are providing their bodies with the best possible ingredients to enhance performance on and off the field!
Arthritis and Athletes
Some 46 million Americans suffer from joint pain and stiffness due to chronic conditions such as arthritis - and nearly 8 MILLION are active exercisers aged 50 or less, most of whom have suffered sports injuries at some point.
Joint pain and arthritis are common afflictions among athletes engaging in high-impact workouts such as running, skiing, tennis and weightlifting - or any sport or activity that puts pressure on the joints such as golf. If left untreated, minor injuries to joint cartilage may lead to more serious forms of arthritis.
A major reason for joint pain among athletes is degeneration of the cartilage, that rubbery, gel-like covering of the bone ends which meet in a joint. This breakdown may be due to gradual wear-and-tear over the years, or it may be triggered by diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. In either case, when the cartilage wears away the bone ends can rub against each other, causing pain and other symptoms.
Sports injuries are an important contributing factor to arthritis. Damage to the ligaments, tendons or cartilage may change the alignment of the joint, redistributing the stress caused by movement and spreading it unevenly within the joint. When that happens, areas of the joint may be subjected to undue stress, resulting in damage and pain.
Joint Pain and Specific Sports or Activities
Golf, tennis and running are among the sports that put the greatest stress on the joints. When you swing a golf club, your knees experience a "twisting pressure" that can damage cartilage or tear tendons. Tennis and sports that involve running subject the weight-bearing joints (such the knee) to the stress of impact: as the feet repeatedly slam into the ground, the impact travels up the legs and reverberates throughout the joints paticulary the knees. This occurs hundreds or even thousands of times as you jog, run or leap. Sports like tennis that involve "turning on a dime", and quick changes in direction, can also greatly stress the knees.Golf and joint Pain
Arthritis and joint pain attacks golfers in the shoulders, hips, knees and back. The pressure exerted on the golfer's forward knee is significant, and can be a major contributing factor to joint distress. (Just think of the knee pain Tiger Woods suffered in the final rounds of the 2008 U.S. Masters Tournament - just before he underwent surgery to reconstruct his knee and had to spend eight months recuperating).
Tennis elbow, one of the most common causes of elbow pain, is characterized by pain and tenderness along the outside of the elbow joint and in the wrist. Morning stiffness in the elbow is also a common complaint. The exact causes of tennis elbow are unknown; however, many believe it is often due to overuse, which causes small tears in the elbow tendons. Tennis elbow commonly occurs in people between the ages of 30 and 60, and can affect those who play any racquet sport involving repetitive motion.
And because it is played on hard surfaces and requires rapid shifts in direction, tennis can set the stage for osteoarthritis of the knee. Many tennis players wear knee braces to support their knees. In their later years, they may suffer through the pain while continuing to put stress on their knees. Ultimately, the pain can force them to quit the sport.
Running and Walking and joint pain
Osteoarthritis pain, especially of the hips and knees, is typically worse when you are bearing weight - as you do when running - or when increasing your activity level beyond a basic stroll. While some physical activity is certainly beneficial for the joints and overall health, too much high-impact activity can cause and/or exacerbate joint pain. Running is the ultimate high-impact sport, generating forces five to seven times your body weight on your knees and hips. This means that if you weigh 160 pounds, when you run there may be 800 pounds worth of force slamming into your knee and hip joints with every step! If you already have arthritis, running may accelerate the wear and tear on your joints. If you have arthritis and are overweight, pounding the pavement is even more likely to affect your weight-bearing joints negatively.
Runners may want to consider using specialized exercise gear designed to support various joints. A company called Opedix Wellness Gear makes running and skiing tights that align and strengthen the knee, reducing the risk of joint injuries. Nordic Pole Walking is proving to be popular among walkers looking for a low impact exercise regime, as are Linear Recumbent Cycles for those looking for a cycling workout that minimizes back and neck pain.Other Sports and Activities That Stress the Joints

Once you start taking JoMo, you'll enjoy a noticeable improvement in joint mobility and quality of life or we'll refund your money, no questions asked. Recent international double-blind studies have shown that glucosamine and chondroitin supplements provide pain relief for people with moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee. The Mayo Clinic notes that, "The consensus of expert and industry opinion supports the use of chondroitin and its common partner agent, glucosamine, for improving symptoms and stopping (or possibly reversing) the degenerative process of osteoarthritis."1 The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons adds that recent studies appear to support the idea that glucosamine and chondroitin relieve osteoarthritis pain.2 Learn More
Remember, consistency is the key. As The Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons states "...you may need to take the supplements (referring to glucosamine and chondroitin) for a couple of months before you see any results...".3 Learn More
