GLUCOSAMINE CHONDROITIN PLUS

Fresh Ground
120 Vegetarian Capsules

INDICATIONS:

Glucosamine Chondrotin Plus caps provide important nutritional support for healthy joints and connective tissue. Both compounds are major structural components found naturally in the body that promote optimal joint connective tissue health. This unique formula combines glucosamine and chondrotin with MSM and devil’s claw to provide fast and effective pain relief, while simultaneously nourishing cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, and enhancing joint lubrication flexibility, and mobility. It can be used to provide relief for conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis and physical overuse or as a preventative to help maintain healthy joints and connective tissue.

Glucosamine is an amino sugar, consisting of an amino acid (glutamine) and a simple sugar (glucose), that the body uses as the structural basis for connective tissue and lubricating fluids. Amino sugars are the building blocks for molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are large molecules that form the glue-like matrix that holds the body together. While the body uses approximately 20 different amino sugars, the GAG’s produced by glucosamine specifically are used to make cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bones. Because connective tissue is constantly being broken down by normal everyday use, the body requires a continuous supply of glucosamine to replace or restructure the broken down tissue. Severe stress, major injuries, and aging osteoarthritis are associated with low GAG production. In osteoarthritis, cartilage begins to thin and breakdown causing stiffness, friction, and joint pain. Research indicates that supplementation with glucosamine sulfate may help the body make more GAG’s, increasing the amount of cartilage and fluid around the joints, helping prevent further breakdown. A clinical trial comparing the use of glucosamine sulfate and ibuprofen for pain relief in patients with TMJ osteoarthritis, reported that glucosamine provided greater relief from pain caused by function during daily activities.

Chondroitin, found naturally in the body, is a major component of cartilage where it helps absorb fluid into the connective tissue, provides the building blocks for cartilage production, and may help prevent cartilage break down. In osteoarthritis research, Chondroitin has been shown to reduce joint pain, swelling, and stiffness and improve joint function. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the symptomatic effects of chondroitin sulfate showed a significant increase in had function and decrease in pain and morning stiffness compared to placebo. Studies evaluating the effects of glucosamine and chondroitin combination therapy showed mixed results. However, one of the largest studies, the 2008 Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT), reported that glucosamine combined with chondroitin provided statistically significant pain relief compared to placebo in patients experiencing moderate to severe pain.

MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane). A metabolite of DMSO, is a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in humans that is anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and protects cells against oxidative damage. It helps reduce joint pain, improve joint movement, and prevent muscle damage. A clinical trial evaluating the effects of MSM on patients with osteoarthritis reported that MSM supplementation reduced pain and improved physical function compared to placebo. Another study comparing the efficacy of glucosamine, MSM and their combination on pain relief in knee osteoarthritis found that combination therapy reduced swelling and provided greater pain relief an improved joint function than individual therapy.

Devil’s Claw, a tuber from Africa contains harpagosides, glycosides that reduce inflammation in the joints. It is used to alleviate arthritic and overuse symptoms, and is effective for both chronic and acute joint pain. It acts as an analgesic in joints and seems to calm down inflammatory conditions in the connective tissue. It can also help reduce chronic muscle pain, such as is found in fibromyalgia.
