The ingredients in Blackmores Joint Formula with Glucosamine and Chondroitin combine to bring benefits to the joints and relief from various osteoarthritis symptoms.
Glucosamine and sulfate are naturally found in the body in cartilage and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a crucial building block of cartilage along with protein, and helps preserve the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. As the body ages it becomes less capable of manufacturing and restoring normal cartilage: supplementation of glucosamine sulfate as glucosamine sulfate sodium chloride complex helps reduce cartilage wear, increases joint mobility and decreases joint stiffness in osteoarthritis (joint degeneration and loss of cartilage).
Clinical trials have shown that 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate as sodium chloride complex significantly improves pain and functionality in osteoarthritis. Results show a decrease in pain of 20-41%, and improved functionality of 21-46%. In addition, glucosamine sulfate may have a long-term protective effect, acting to reduce cartilage wear and slow the progression of osteoarthritis.
An eight-year study on 275 patients, published in 2008, found that supplementation with 1500 mg/day of glucosamine sulfate for at least one year reduced the risk of knee replacement to approximately half that of the placebo group. The same study also found in a sub-group analysis that patients who had previously taken glucosamine sulfate used significantly less medications & health resources for osteoarthritis symptoms.
Chondroitin is also naturally found in the body in cartilage and serves to lubricate and nourish joints, helping them to resist compression.
The minerals manganese and boron are essential to the body's production of cartilage and bone, and play an important role in the bones and joints's chemical make-up.
