These patented ingredients are derived from natural sources such as stabilized probiotics (Heat-killed Lactobacillus plantarum), Rooster Comb Extract (Hyaluronic acid, polysaccharides & collagen), turmeric spice (Curcumin) and chicken sternal cartilage (Undenatured Type II Collagen) all supported by scientific evidence that
Conventional joint care products are mostly comprised of ingredients required for cartilage or joint fluid formation including hydrolyzed collagen, chondroitin and synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) for lubrication with varying results. The continued use of traditional pain relievers including NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may pose adverse reactions (RA) such as palpitations, abdominal pains, UTI, insomnia, gastric ulcers, hepatitis, hepatic failure, dizziness, acute renal or kidney failure, etc. (MIMS Drug Reference 2017, pp. 251-274))
Curcumin is derived from turmeric, a spice that has been used both for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years, providing anti-inflammatory effect, anti-oxidant function and anti-inflammatory disease modulator
However curcumin is very hard for our body to absorb and you need very large doses of curcumin to get the anti-inflammatory effect, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
MAXiJoints Microctivated Curcumin eliminates the need for excessive consumption by helping deliver smaller, more bioavailable doses to the body.
Towerbell MAXiJoints is micronised, meaning the particles has been reduced to smaller particle size (10 microns) allowing for greater transport through veins and capillaries
In addition, the special mix of polymers in Towerbell MAXiJoints Microactivated curcumin shows the rate of which the curcuminoids are released so they stay in the bloodstream up to 12 hours.
Rooster Comb Extract
Patented natural ingredient with a high a concentration of hyaluronic acid
Also contains other natural components (collagen and polysaccharides) that act in synergy to enhance its effect.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by our body and acts as a lubricant, reducing friction and easing movement.
Over time the quantity and quality of hyaluronic acid generated by our body decreases when it is over used and causing joint problems.
Based on a pharmacological model studies shows that Towerbell MAXiJoints Rooster Comb Extract increases the production and efficacy of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 10X the endogenous synthesis of hyaluronic acid, Reducing the degree of synovial effusion and joint pain

Native Undenatured Type II Collagen
Scientific studies presented at the ESCEO Congress in Milan Showed that Native Undenatured Type II Collagen has demonstrated to be effective in
Reducing pain and inflammation
2x more effective than Glucosamine & Chondroitin
Provides protective effect on cartilage
Native type II collagen is the core structural protein of cartilage and makes it more resistant to tension and stiffness
Due to its native form, the oral administration of Native Undenatured Type II Collagen helps maintain good health through mechanism of action called oral tolerance. This is an immune-mediated mechanism that regulates the immune response to endogenous Native type II collagen, preventing its degradation.
Heat-Treated Lactobacillus plantarum
Different from general live probiotics, patented L-137® is a heat-treated strain of Lactobacillus plantarum L-137, that promotes endogenous hyaluronic acid production from keratinocytes through its immunostimulating activity. Our advanced heat treatment technology significantly stabilizes the activity of HK L-137
Many lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria possess "Immunostimulating activity" however, the strength of the immunostimulating activity varies greatly on bacterial strains.
Clinical studies indicate that intake of Heat-killed Lactobacillus plantarum (HK-L137) - one of the patented ingredients of MAXiJoints decreased the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (viral & bacterial).
