VIARTRIL-S POWDER 1500MG 30 sachets
The role of glucosamine sulfate in halting or reversing joint
degeneration appears to be directly due to its ability to act as an
essential substrate for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)
and hyaluronic acid, the chemical backbone needed to form the
proteoglycan cartilage found in the structural matrix of joints.
Glucosamine also inhibits cartilage breakdown by chondrocytes. Recent
studies confirm that glucosamine is bioavailable both systemically and
in the joints after oral administration of crystalline glucosamine
sulfate in osteoarthritis patients
Rottapharm, the European patent holder and manufacturer of this product, sponsored two large (at least 100 patients per group), three-year, placebo-controlled clinical trials of Viartril-S. Both of these studies demonstrated a clear benefit for glucosamine treatment . There was not only an improvement in symptoms, but also an improvement in joint space narrowing on radiographs. These results indicate that glucosamine can actually help prevent the destruction of cartilage that is the hallmark of osteoarthritis, unlike pain relievers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Successful treatment of osteoarthritis should effectively control pain and slow down or reverse the progression of the degeneration. Research proves glucosamine sulfate is capable of satisfying both of these criteria. It generally takes around four weeks before improvements in symptoms are noticed when taking glucosamine, and longer for radiographic changes.
Most of the positive scientific research conducted on glucosamine has been done on glucosamine sulfate, and it has been found to be conclusively more effective than glucosamine HCl, since the sulfate part of the salt is needed by the body to produce cartilage as well.
Recent European League Against Rheumatism practice guidelines for knee osteoarthritis give glucosamine sulfate the highest level of evidence and strength of the recommendation.
