The upper extremities are connected to the trunk via the shoulder girdle. The upper limbs include: the shoulder girdle with shoulder blade and collar bone; the upper arm with humerus; the lower arm with ulna and radius; hand with carpus; and the metacarpus and fingers. The musculature of the upper extremities serves as locomotion for the parts mentioned above.

Many factors contribute to the deterioration of our musculoskeletal system. This system, consisting of many connective tissues such as joints, ligaments, and tendons, is continuously being tested by various factors such as stress, improper diet, and exercise. A healthy musculoskeletal system is important for everyone - the young, the elderly, sports enthusiasts, people constantly on their feet, and people using repetitious movements such as computer keyboarding. Failure to maintain a healthy musculoskeletal system and joints can lead to a reduction in overall health and wellbeing. Therefore, supplying your body with the proper nutrients found in Standard Process supplements is vital in keeping your body’s connective tissues healthy.
