Double Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Product Name: Double Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Product Number: VNV193
Product Count: 60/CT
Product Form: Tablets
Sizes Available: 60 Tabs

Overview
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are recognized as the leading supplements for maintenance of healthy joints. Our double strength Mega Potency Glucosamine & Chondroitin is a high potency formulation that provides a balanced combination of these nutritional supplements to promote optimal joint and cartilage health.

Research indicates that the combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin was more effective at slowing the progression of cartilage breakdown than either of these supplements alone. Recent studies have shown positive effects of Glucosamine and Chondroitin preparations on supporting healthy joint function; especially as Glucosamine Sulfate and Chondroitin Sulfate.

Our Mega Potency Glucosamine & Chondroitin utilizes Chondroitin Sulfate sourced from the trachea of farm raised cattle while the Glucosamine Sulfate is derived from processed shellfish such as shrimp, lobster and crab. This formula is available in 60, 120, and 240 count tablets.

Glucosamine Sulfate
Glucosamine Sulfate is the form best absorbed by the body and the one most commonly used to promote joint health. Glucosamine Sulfate is an aminopolysaccharide, which is a combination of an amino acid (glutamine) and a sugar (glucose). Glucosamine is produced by the body and provides the raw material for substances that provide the foundation for many of the body's tissues including cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and collagen to mention a few. Glucosamine also supports the health of tissues that make up many of the body's organs. Glucosamine may not work as quickly as pain relieving medications, but over time it may be more effective, this is because medications tend to wear off quickly, but Glucosamine continues to work, sometimes for weeks after the supplements are discontinued. Research indicates that Glucosamine may help to relieve the stiffness, pain and swelling associated with joint disorders. In a double-blind clinical trial that compared administration of 1200 mg ibuprofen to 1500 mg of Glucosamine Sulfate, test subjects taking Glucosamine Sulfate experienced less pain than those taking ibuprofen. Approximately 70 countries worldwide authorize Glucosamine as a 'treatment' for persons with mild to moderately severe joint disorders.

Research Indicates
  • Commonly used by medical practitioners in treatment of joint disorders
  • May support healthy inflammation response
  • May help alleviate progressive joint damage
  • Shown to speed healing of joint sprains and muscle strains
  • May promote healthy healing and lessen scarring from wounds or surgery
  • Shows promise in the treatment of kidney stones (additional research is needed to substantiate any claims)
  • Responsible for repair and maintenance of cartilage and connective tissue
  • May limit the effects of degeneration associated with decreasing water content of cartilage
  • May support joint health and lower pain associated with joint disorders
  • May support healthy inflammatory response
  • Often used along with glucosamine and manganese for treatment of joint disorders
  • May be useful in treatment of joint-related sports injuries
Recommended Dosage
  • Typical daily dosage ranges from 500 - 1500 mgs; take 1 tablet, one to two times daily with meals.
Cautions
  • If you are pregnant or lactating consult a health care practitioner prior to taking this product.
  • Glucosamine Sulfate may increase the risk of developing insulin resistance and could decrease the metabolic actions of insulin. Persons that have diabetes should consult a health care practitioner prior to using Glucosamine products.
  • Persons allergic to shellfish should not use Glucosamine Sulfate.
  • In rare cases mild digestive distress has been reported by those taking Glucosamine Sulfate, taking with a meal typically alleviates this response.
Chondroitin Sulfate
Chondroitin Sulfate is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a long chain of specialized polysaccharides (or sugars). It is used in the body as a building block to form connective tissues such as cartilage; it is also present in the walls of blood vessels. Chodroitin Sulfate keeps cartilage fluid and elastic. Researchers believe that Chondroitin Sulfate works in two different ways: it provides the raw material needed to repair cartilage and it may block enzyme activity that breaks down cartilage. Recent studies indicate that Chondroitin Sulfate may be as effective at relief of joint pain as aspirin and other nonsteroidal medications and without the gastrointestinal problems often associated with such over-the-counter products.
