Ligaplex II is a dietary supplement that promises to support the well-being of body tissues and joints. The product works by providing such nutrients as Vitamin C, A, D, B12, E, Calcium and Manganese. These elements are responsible for healthy musculoskeletal system. Ligaplex II is sold in a container of 150 capsules. According to the manufacturer, customers are recommended to take two tablets of the product during meals or as prescribed by the doctor. However, this is not a medication, this is a supplement. In this way, it offers the basis to nourish the user's body and musculoskeletal structure with important nutrients. However, if you suffer from any health condition, this product will hardly bring you back the freedom of the movement. Ligaplex II has also been claimed to maintain strong body fluid levels. The product is also said to contain a PMG extract of the bovine heart, as well as a mixture of such ingredients as Cardiotrophin PMG, Ostrophin PMG, Manganese B12, Cyro-Yeast, Cataplex E, and Super-EFF.
According to the manufacturer, the supplement is manufactured with the use of a technique that supports its nutritive value. The company says that the majority of their components are planted locally on their organic farm. Then these ingredients are diced, chopped, juiced or dried. We will discuss the ingredients used in Ligaplex II in detail further but at first let us take a look at the company behind the product. Well, the supplement is manufactured by the company called Standard Process. The founder of the company is Dr. Royal Lee. The official website is poorly made and contains very little information about the product and the manufacturer in general. The company intends to create a complete food supplement to help people with musculoskeletal problems. Since the product's objective is to provide the human body with natural nutrients, let us take a closer look at them.
The Ligaplex II website does not provide the full ingredient list of the supplement, so we have to do a thorough research on our own. The website only lists basic components without focusing on their functions or possible side effects. Vitamin A is believed to help in tissue restoration and cellular differentiation. Vitamin B12 is known to be able to enhance the production of red blood cells within the user's body. Vitamin D is known for its ability to boost the body's immune system. Vitamin C takes part in the synthesis of collagen as well as collagen matrix superiority. Vitamin E is used in the supplement as an antioxidant mainly. Calcium is said to be able to increase the density of the bones; however, this property has not been scientifically proven. Carbamide is a compound that maintains correct levels of fluid in the body tissues, healthy urine concentration and healthy joints.
Another ingredient in the product is Cyro-Yeast, an element that improves other nutrients absorption in the body. Manganese helps to maintain strong muscles, strengthens bones and fuels the formation of fresh bone material. PMG Extract Of Bovine Heart sounds terrible but it makes your heart tissues be able to maintain muscle function. Bovine Bone And Pmg Extract derives from veal bones. It is claimed to support fit connective tissue; however, more research is need to confirm this claim. Other ingredients in Ligaplex II include Defatted wheat, Oat flour, Magnesium citrate, Inositol, Tillandsia usneoides, Dried pea juice, Carrot and Sweet potato. To understand whether the supplement actually works, let us take a look at the real reviews from customers as well as at possible side effects you may experience when using the supplement.
Does Ligaplex II Really Work?
Even though the manufacturer of Ligaplex II does not mention any risk of experiencing side effects, it does not mean that the supplement is completely safe to use. For example, one customer reports that he has been taking 5-6 pills of the product daily (as recommended), in order to decrease his inflammation in the knee (tendonitis); however, after taking these pills for a week, the man noticed certain side effects. These included anxiety and vivid dreams which are likely to be produced by high levels of manganese in the body. In the dosage of 6 pills per day the intake of manganese is 105 mg, which is ten times higher than the recommended dosage (11 mg per day). There is a high risk of the nervous system damage too. Initially, a human body requires small amounts of this mineral due to its antioxidant properties. It is believed to protect cells against free radical damage. Higher concentrations of manganese can be toxic for the human body.
Another customer reports that she bought two bottles of Ligaplex II and has taken the product as recommended but felt no difference in her body aches. She was relieved that she had no adverse effects like other users. The woman won't use the supplement any longer. For some customers the product can be potentially dangerous. A "doctor" with no actual MD/DO/DC background told one individual that she had to take Ligaplex II for her neuro-degenerative disease. As a result, after taking this product for a few months (6 capsules per day) her condition got even worse than before. None of her symptoms not only improved but the user had got new symptoms including an increased muscle stiffness and tremor. In general, these are signs of Manganese toxicity, since this ingredient is used in high amounts in this product (she was taking 105 mg per day, while the normal dosage for the human body is only 10 mg). Let us take a look at the actual customers' reviews available online.
"I took Ligaplex II only twice (the recommended two capsules with a meal), but this product caused me unpleasant side effects. Both times I experienced a terrible headache during the day. I suffer from headaches very rarely. The first time, I didn't link it to the supplement, but when the same happened for the second time I understood that it was the reason. It was the only new thing I had consumed differently. The main ingredient is Manganese linked to many health warnings on the Internet. I have learnt that it can cause neurological side effects."
"My chiropractor recommended me to take four pills of Ligaplex II daily, two with breakfast and two with dinner. That's 70mg of manganese daily! I asked my doctor about the Manganese daily value and was informed that an adult should take only 11mg of Manganese daily. It is a trace element that can be harmful if taken in large doses. In fact, it is a toxic element for the human body. Ask your personal care provider about potential dangers of this product."
"I brought Ligaplex II from a local Chiropracter. I promptly returned this suppliment after I showed it to my MD, Naturopathic physician. She is a highly trained and educated specialist who was concerned with no information about the actual isolated type of vitamins in the supplement. She also noted that there is no use to put organic Bovine into the human system. There is no research that bovine extracts are safe to use. In fact, bovine cortisol could increase the risk of inflammation, stress, and systemic reactions."
