Achieving and maintaining strong bones and healthy joints just got a lot easier with the addition of 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 in each daily dose of JoMo, the leading shellfish-free liquid glucosamine supplement on the market. JoMo provides 2,000 mg of vegetable-based non-GMO glucosamine, which means you completely avoid any exposure to mercury or other toxins associated with seafood sources. While JoMo is free of additives and fillers, it is rich in antioxidants, boasting an ORAC rating of 32,619. JoMo comes in liquid form and is more bio-available and more easily digested than other glucosamine supplements.
A telling sign of the importance of vitamin D is the fact that vitamin D receptors are found in nearly every cell and tissue in the body, which is why sufficient levels of the vitamin/hormone are necessary for optimal functioning. For example:
· Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium in the gut and enables normal growth, repair, and integrity of bone. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones become thin and brittle, and individuals are at risk for development of osteoporosis.
· Vitamin D also supports bone health by helping prevent falls and fractures. A recent (2012) article in the Scandinavian Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation noted that “the effects of vitamin D on muscle, balance and cognitive functions may be an added value in fracture prevention.”
· Vitamin D deficiency has a role in knee osteoarthritis in people younger than 60, according to a study published in International Orthopedics, and the authors recommended individuals with symptoms of knee osteoarthritis have their vitamin D levels checked.
· Vitamin D supports function of the immune system and helps reduce inflammation, which has a role in heart disease, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions.
· Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with a number of serious health issues, including “an increased risk of mortality, cardiovascular disease and cancer, especially colorectal cancer,” as noted in a recent report published in the Scandinavian Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation.
· Higher intake of vitamin D has been associated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to a 2012 Journal of Gerontology report.
Although the daily recommended intake of vitamin D offered by the US government’s Food and Nutrition Board is a mere 600 IU for adults up to age 70 years and 800 IU thereafter, many experts recognize higher intake of vitamin D is necessary to support bone and joint health, and overall well-being as well, including Dr. Andrew Weil, who recommends 2,000 IU daily of vitamin D3, which is the amount available in JoMo.
JoMo was developed by the leading orthopedic surgeon to the NBA and is valued for its bone and joint support by weekend warriors and world-class athletes alike, including five-time Olympian and gold medal volleyball player Tom Hoff and world champion trainers and health professionals such as Peter Park (Lance Armstrong’s conditioning coach).

The 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 in JoMo joins a unique combination of other natural ingredients designed to promote, protect, and support bone and joint health, including chondroitin, type II collagen, MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), manganese, vitamin D, and antioxidant concentrates (cherry and pomegranate). As a bonus, the therapeutic dose of vitamin D in JoMo also supports healthy aging, working to help keep both mind and body functioning at its best.
