While looking for pertinent and relative research to issues we deal with here at the office, I came across this article online which was very recently published in supplementation research. PubMed is your basic search site for indexing research studies and usually one of the first places we look as doctors trying to stay ahead on the evidence based practice spectrum of chiropractic.
For about 15-20 years, Chriopractors, Nutritionists, and some other medical professionals have felt confident that Chondroitin and Glucosamine supplements from GOOD SOURCES help to keep arthritic joints moving freely. Please note that we stress good sources with all supplements. We don’t mind if you buy your supplements from other sources than our office, just be sure the source is reputable!
The best part of this study is this, the conclusion in a study basically tells you what the researchers what you want to know and this one goes right to the point in dealing with osteoarthritis, pain, and tightness in the joints.
CONCLUSION: A 800 mg/day pharmaceutical-grade CS is superior to placebo and similar to celecoxib in reducing pain and improving function over 6 months in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients. This formulation of CS should be considered a first-line treatment in the medical management of knee OA.
Here at the office we of both a basic Chondroitin and Glucosamine from Anabolic Labratories, but also an even better version known as Nutra-Disc which contains several different natural anti-inflammatories like Turmeric, Bromelain, Curcumin and many others. Nutra Disc is a unique proprietary product for disc injuries and related connective tissue problems. Nutra Disc contains a specialized blend of ingredients designed to support the body’s natural response to maintain good joint health, promote the production of collagen, and support the rebuilding of cartilage.
We previously published positive quality research about Chondroitin and Glucoasamine supplementation on our blog a few months back which you can see at the link below.
