Support for Healthy Joints
is an important nutrient for joint health. As a main component of the biological building blocks of connective tissues and cartilage, it is used to create components that are needed for joint and cartilage repair when these are damaged by injury or chronic disease. Glucosamine is also used in the synthesis of synovial fluid, which cushions and lubricates joints. Other benefits come from its mildly anti-inflammatory effects.

Osteoarthritis and Joint Injuries
is one of the best studied supplements for joint support. Many clinical trials have demonstrated its effectiveness for relieving the symptoms of osteoarthritis, reducing pain and improving function. It also helps to delay the progression of osteoarthritis. These effects are found in both short term and long term trials. Its effects on tissue-repair are also beneficial for athletic injuries.

A Vegetarian Form
Most glucosamine supplements are derived from shellfish. AOR’s Glucosamine HCL is a novel form of glucosamine that is completely vegetarian and sodium¬free. This remarkable supplement is very safe and well tolerated and is easily absorbed by the body to cushion, repair, and protect joints.

Joint support is a relatively new niche in the nutritional supplement market, composed mainly of SAMe (s-adenosylmethionine), hyaluronic acid, shark cartilage, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), chondroitin sulfate, and glucosamine sulfate.
Glucosamine: What is it and How Does it Work?

Glucosamine is the best-studied of these aforementioned joint-support supplements, serving the needs of young and old, athletic and arthritic or injured. Glucosamine is an amino sugar used to create cushioning fluids and tissues around joints. It also repairs damaged arthritic joints, reduces pain, and builds synovial fluids. It is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, and is necessary in the formation of skin, eyes, bones, tendons, nails, ligaments, and parts of the heart.

Glucosamine is also referred to as an aminomonosaccharide, meaning that it is the product of the synthesis between glucose and an amino acid –in this case glutamine. Most glucose and nearly half of all amino acids are obtained through dietary sources, but the aminomonosaccharides found in our bodies are formed internally, and dietary sources for them are negligible. Glucosamine is produced naturally in the body by chondrocytes in cartilage to help maintain and build healthy joint tissue. The main basic purpose of glucosamine is to create long chains of modified disaccharides called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which the joints and cartilage require for repair. The GAGs are the main component of proteoglycans (PGs), which along with chondrocytes and collagen, make up cartilage. Glucosamine is also converted in the body to N¬acetyl-glucosamine, which in turn is critical to the formation of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the central component of synovial fluid which acts as a lubricant in the joints.

Tissue Repair
In the treatment of degenerative joint diseases, the research conducted with glucosamine sulfate is extensive. With respect to osteoarthritis alone, there have been 20 randomized controlled trials involving a total of 2570 patients. The collective results displayed a 28% (change from baseline) improvement in pain and a 21% (change from baseline) improvement in function for those patients supplementing with glucosamine over the control (placebo) groups.

Vegetarianism and Volume
The majority of glucosamine products currently on the market are derived from shellfish, which makes them unacceptable to people who are allergic to seafood or simply follow a vegetarian diet. AOR® (Advanced Orthomolecular Research, Inc.), decided to meet the needs of this niche, and in so doing produced a superior form of glucosamine.
The glucosamine source secured by AOR® is a unique type of glucosamine that is not derived from shellfish or any other crustacean or animal source. Instead, it is produced through a proprietary fermentation process involving the use of aspergillus niger, a potent strain known for its metabolism of citric acid production. It should also be noted that most types of glucosamine are sold in the sulfate form and use ordinary table salt (NaCl) as the stabilizing agent. The result is a product that is often more than 20% sodium (in the form of ordinary table salt) and perhaps just over 50% active glucosamine. Glucosamine HCL includes glucosamine in a hydrochloride form which is not only sodium-free, but is at least 83% active glucosamine.
