Thorne Ar-Encap, 240 veggie capsules
- Glucosamine provides proven joint support*
- Curcumin, Devil's claw, and Boswellia help support the body's normal inflammatory response*

AR-Encap is a comprehensive joint support formula that goes beyond simple glucosamine supplementation.* This formula supplies the recommended daily dose of glucosamine in combination with joint-supporting nutrients and botanicals.*
Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM), also known as dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2) and methyl sulfone, is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and animals, including humans.
Curcumin, the principal polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric, exerts potent antioxidant effects.* Curcumin Phytosome is a compound containing curcumin and pure phosphatidylcholine. This compound has demonstrated significantly better absorption than ordinary curcumin and helps support the body's normal inflammatory response.*
Glucosamine can provide significant joint support, as evidenced by numerous clinical studies.
In addition to glucosamine sulfate, MSM, and curcumin, AR-Encap contains the botanicals Boswellia and devil's claw. Boswellia appears to inhibit the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes, thus promoting the body's normal inflammatory response.* Extracts of devil's claw have been found to exert significant joint support in animal studies.* In a double-blind study, an herb/nutrient formula, whose main ingredients were Boswellia and curcumin, resulted in significant support of already normal joint mobility in the active treatment group compared to placebo.
Potassium (from glucosamine sulfate potassium chloride complex), methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), glucosamine sulfate (from glucosamine sulfate potassium chloride complex), Indian frankincense gum extract (Boswellia serrata), curcumin phytosome (Curcuma longa root extract / phosphatidylcholine complex), bromelain, hypromellose (cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide
