PhysioLogics Joint Formula utilizes Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, the same popular joint support ingredients backed by scientific research. Glucosamine is an aminomonosaccharide which promotes the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans. Chondroitin promotes healthy enzymatic metabolism of cartilage. Citrus Bioflavonoids are water-soluble pigments. This formula combines key structural components in cartilage to support overall joint function, mobility and flexibility.
STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Glucosamine, a key component of cartilage and synovial fluid, is an aminomonosaccharide utilized as the primary substrate in the synthesis of GAGs and proteoglycans. The amide group of Glucosamine is required for metabolic conversion into Glucosamine-6-phosphate, which is subsequently converted to galactosamine required for GAG assembly. Glucosamine from food and supplements is incorporated into the metabolic pathway of proteoglycan and GAG synthesis, promoting cartilage production and articular function.
Chondroitin Sulfate is a natural constituent of cartilage, made up of repeating chains of GAGs. Chondroitin Sulfate is a highly charged polyanion, promoting water retention in the connective tissue to support joint flexibility and cushion joints. Composed of N-acetyl-galactosamine and glucuronic acid, Chondroitin Sulfate provides a raw material for proteoglycan and GAG synthesis to actually help renew cartilage. Chondroitin Sulfate also promotes healthy enzymatic metabolism of cartilage, to further maintain joint health.
The Lancet published a double-blind placebo-controlled study that investigated the long-term effects of Glucosamine Sulfate in a trial of 212 subjects. After 3 years of taking 1500 mg/day of Glucosamine or placebo, the subjects who received Glucosamine maintained healthy joints, which was not observed in the placebo group. (Reginster et al, 2001)
In this study, 30 subjects receiving 1500 mg of Glucosamine per day were compared with 28 subjects receiving a placebo for 12 weeks. All participants had joint concerns at the beginning of the study. The subjects who received Glucosamine experienced a significant improvement in several aspects of joint comfort compared with placebo. (Usha et al, 2004)
A total of 120 subjects were given 800 mg Chondroitin Sulfate or placebo for two, three-month periods over the course of a year. Subjects receiving Chondroitin Sulfate had significantly improved knee function as compared to the placebo group. (Uebelhart et al, 2004)
