Supports Joint Health
Osteoarthritis has been viewed as a degenerative joint disease, and occurs when the cartilage or cushion between the joints breaks down over time, leading to symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and swelling.Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycan which is a major component of cartilage. A review of several double-blind, randomized, controlled trials noted that treatment with oral glucosamine sulfate was more effective than placebo in delaying knee osteoarthritis.
The risk of disease progression was reduced by 54% while pain was reduced by 41% and joint function improved by 46% with the use of glucosamine.
A 24-month randomized-controlled trial of patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis and clinical synovitis explored the effect of chondroitin sulfate or celecoxib on knee osteoarthritis cartilage volume loss. Researchers noted potential benefits of chondroitin sulfate at reducing the long-term progression of knee osteoarthritis volume loss.
Supports Bone Health
Vitamin D3 is the cholecalciferol form of vitamin D. Research has shown vitamin D3 is approximately 87% more potent in raising and maintaining vitamin D levels, and should be the preferred supplementation option for vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D3 is important for the development and maintenance of bones and teeth as it plays an important role in maintaining appropriate levels of calcium and phosphorus, minerals needed for normal bone formation and mineralization. A health survey identified that 4% of Canadians aged 6–79 are deficient in vitamin D, while 10% do not have sufficient levels to maintain bone health. Researchers believe this is due to a lack of vitamin D in the diet and limited sunlight exposure.
10% of Canadians do not have sufficient vitamin D levels to maintain bone health.
