Glucosamine & Chondroitin
- Supports joint structure
- Prevents cartilage deterioration
- Relieves joint pain from arthritis
- Cushions joint tissues
Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are components of
the cartilage in joint tissue, supporting joint structure by aiding in
the formation of connective tissue and protecting against the
deterioration of cartilage from chronic joint diseases, while helping to
relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Chondroitin Sulfate/Glucosamine Sulfate
Glucosamine is two hexosamine sugars common in animal cells. The
synthesis of glucosamine begins with the enzyme glucosamine sythetase
facilitating the transfer of amide group from glutamine to fructose-6
phosphate. The enzyme simultaneously isomerizes this compound to form
glucosamine-6-phosphate (G-6-P). This molecule is the precursor to all
hexosamine and hexosamine derivatives including: N-acetyl glucosamine,
N-acetyl galactosamine and N-acetyl neuraminic acid. Chondroitin
sulphate (CS) is a heterogenous group of glycosaminoglycan that is
further classified into chondroitin-4-sulphate (CS4) or
chondroitin-6-sulphate (CS6). CS functions as a component of
proteoglycans. The low molecular weight and its high solubility enable
GS to be readily absorbed in the blood stream (over 90% of an oral
dose). Evidence indicates absorption of GS to be via active transport.
GS is rapidly incorporated into articular cartilage. CS on the other
hand is absorbed poorly due to the wide range of chain lengths and
molecular weights. Estimations range between 0.8% and 8.5% absorption of
CS intact. It would seem unlikely that the physiological benefits of CS
are due to the intact molecule rather than to the increased
availability of monosaccharide building blocks (glucuronic acid and
N-acetyl glucosamine) created by the hydrolysis of CS during digestion
Clinical Applications of Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate
Glucosamine is a very well studied joint-support supplement.
A review of a number of clinical studies showed that over 90% of
patients reported improvement of symptoms after taking 1 500mg GS daily
for 50 days. Arthritis of the shoulder or elbow responded the best,
while polyarticular arthritis of the hip had the poorer rate- 43%
reported feeling better compared to 49% who reported no improvement. CS
in various formulations produced similar effects. Co-administration of
CS resulted in 72% reduction in the effective dose of NSAIDs required to
Another study comparing Voltaren (a prescriptive NSAID) with CS showed
that Voltaren produced a prompt reduction in clinical symptoms; however
the symptoms reappeared quickly after the discontinuation of treatment.
Patients treated with CS had a slower response to treatment, although
the favorable response remained up to three months after discontinuation
• Forty-two patients (aged 35-78) with symptomatic
osteoarthritis of the knee received 800mg daily dose of CS or placebo
for 1 year. After 3 months, joint pain was significantly reduced. The
difference in pain reduction became even more marked after 12 months
(63% vs 26%; p<0.01).
An Effective Combination
Studies using the combination of chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine have demonstrated its effectiveness.
In patients with capsulitis, disk displacement, disk dislocation or
painful osteoarthritis of the temporomandibular joint, 1500 mg of
glucosamine and 1200 mg of CS for 12 weeks reduced pain and joint
tenderness, as well as the daily amount of over-the-counter medications
• In another study, glucosamine (1500mg/day) and CS (1200
mg/day) reduced pain in patients with knee osteoarthritis who had been
suffering from moderate-to-severe knee pain.
are a number of medications on the market that are prescribed to reduce
joint pain. Unfortunately some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
medications can carry significant and serious side effects and may not
have a long lasting effect.
and chondroitin sulphate are two well researched nutrients for joint
support. AOR’s combination formula provides natural and effective relief
for joint pain.
