TNT Hinge Joint V2 - Product Review

TNT has released a joint support product that is quite unique and different from the usual suggested omega 3 prescription. The composition and make up is quite peculiar so we decided to give it a look.

About the product:

TNT Hinge Joint Armor has 2 main essential ingredients that it uses as the power plays for its effectiveness.

The first is glucosamine. This is a naturally occurring compound that functions as a pivotal building block for a variety of functional molecules in your body. However, this substance is mainly known for developing and maintaining cartilage in your joints. One of its primary roles is to support the healthy development of the tissues between your joints.

Articular cartilage is a type of smooth white tissue that covers the ends of your bones where they meet to form joints. This kind of tissue, along with a lubricating liquid called synovial fluid, allows bones to move freely across one another, minimising friction and allowing for painless movement at your joints. Glucosamine helps form several chemical compounds involved in the creation of articular cartilage and synovial fluid. Some studies have shown that supplemental glucosamine may protect joint tissue by preventing the breakdown of cartilage.

Additionally, Glucosamine supplements are often used to treat a wide variety of bone and joint conditions. This molecule has been specifically studied for its potential to treat symptoms and disease progression associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. A multitude of studies show that supplementing daily with glucosamine may offer efficient and long-lasting treatment for osteoarthritis by providing a significant reduction in pain, maintenance of joint space and overall slowing of disease progression.

The second ingredient used in this product is Methylsulfonylmethane (otherwise known as MSM). The anti-inflammatory properties of MSM have been professionally researched and well documented. It is believed that MSM inhibits NF-kB, a protein complex involved in inflammatory responses in your body. It also reduces the production of cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-ɑ) and interleukin 6 (IL-6), which are signalling proteins linked to systemic inflammation.

Additionally, MSM can increase levels of glutathione, a potent antioxidant created by your body. For example, supplementing with MSM significantly reduced inflammation in mice with stomach ulcers by inhibiting the release of inflammatory cytokines including TNF-ɑ and IL-6, as well as increasing glutathione levels.[1]

Usability:

Put simply, the ones who will find this most product most useful would be the following people:

  • Impact Sportsmen
  • Heavy Duty athletes
  • Powerlifters and Strongmen
  • The elderly
  • Those who suffer from aggravating joint issues

A product like this with two powerhouse ingredients working together like this would almost certainly help alleviate symptoms of joint damage, inflammation or even both at the same time.

Dosages:

TNT Hinge Joint Armor has a serving suggestion of 10g per serving. This will give you a month’s supply worth. Each individual ingredient has been sufficiently added to this core of this product, making it an very good value for money product.

Rating:

This product scores in at a 3.5/5. It is an extremely useful product, but its usefulness is limited. However, it is necessary enough that a larger number of lifters and athletes could benefit from it.
