Research Information

Glucosamine Hydrochloride

As humans age, the amount of glucosamine normally synthesized by the body declines, leading to a deficiency in the production of important biological chemicals that form the major cushioning ingredients of the joint fluids and surrounding tissues. This further leads to specific tissue weakness as tissues in the joints become damaged and the lubricating synovial fluids in the joint spaces become thin and watery. The normal cushioning is lost leaving the bones and the cartilage to scrape against each other inside the joint space.

Over time, the the most common procedure is to use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These preparations may cause side effects like slowing down the body's rate of cartilage replacement and actually destroying cartilage. Other side effects include: gastrointestinal tract damage, hemorrhaging, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), edema (fluid retention) and sometimes kidney and liver damage.

When these products are no longer effective, you can choose to: 1. live with it; or 2. undergo radical medical procedures such as joint replacement surgery. This is where an orthopedic surgeon replaces your hip or knee with a synthetic one. The procedure is complicated and the recovery time extensive. Because this is major surgery, you are cautioned by your doctor that you may experience infection, blood clots, pneumonia or other complications following the operation. The bill typically ranges from $25,000 to $30,000 for a knee replacement and $50,000 to $60,000 for replacing a hip.

Although scientific studies were conducted with glucosamine sulfate, the hydrochloride form is easily assimilated by the body. Glucosamine hydrochloride demonstrates more stability, purity, and higher concentration when compared to glucosamine sulfate. It is particularly effective when taken in combination with Chondroitin and MSM.

Chondroitin is the fibrous protein substance that binds water in the cartilage matrix and is essential to normal cartilage metabolism. Studies demonstrate that individuals with arthritis have low levels of Chondroitin.

Glucosamine stimulates the body's production of collagen, the protein portion of the fibrous substance that holds joints together. Collagen is also the main component of the shock absorbing cushion called articular cartilage; the white smooth surface which covers the ends of body joints such as those in the wrist, fingers, toes, ankles, knees, hips and between the discs of the spine. Glucosamine helps detoxify and repair tough tissue including tendons and other connective tissues.
