Joint Formula to improve range of motion and mobility - Doctor Formulated
January 31 2018

There are many natural joint formulas on the market, perhaps hundreds of them, and most contain glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, CMO and a few herbs and herbal extracts that may play a role in joint health. Most of these joint formulas are probably effective. You may consider purchasing a joint formula from a company you trust since some of the ingredients in these nutraceutical products, such as chondroitin, are expensive and a few companies may not put as much of this ingredient in their joint formula as they claim on the supplement fact panel.

Joint formula research studies
Efficacy of glucosamine sulfate treatment in patients with osteoarthritis
Pol Merkur Lekarski. 2007.
Glucosamine sulfate, which is precursor of glucosamineglycans synthesis, plays a special role among known disease modifying drugs. To assess the efficacy of treatment of osteoarthritis patients with glucosamine sulfate (Artreum joint formula). 50 patients with OA of the knees (38 pts) or hips (12 pts) entered into study (41 women, 9 men, aged 50-83 yr.). 47 patients completed the study (39 women, 9 men). All patients have been treated with 500 mg of joint formula three times daily for 12 weeks. In this study we found that glucosamine joint formula treatment causes significant improvement in functional status and pain.

Glucosamine joint formula for athletes
Glucosamine administration in athletes: effects on recovery of acute knee injury.
Res Sports Med. 2007 Apr-June Institute of Sports Medicine, Sports Academy, Belgrade, Serbia.
The main aim of this study was to examine the effects of 4 weeks of glucosamine administration on the functional ability and the degree of pain intensity in competitive male athletes after acute knee injury. This study was a randomized, double-blind parallel trial of glucosamine (1500 mg per day) or a placebo for 28 days, utilising 106 patients with an acute knee injury. No significant difference was found between the glucosamine, and placebo group in mean pain intensity scores for resting and walking, and degree of knee swelling. There was no significant difference between passive knee flexibility. After 28 days of treatment the patients from the glucosamine group demonstrated significant improvement in knee flexion and extension as compared with the placebo group.

Joint Formula supplementation questions
What is triple action joint formula?
   I'm not sure what is meant by triple action joint formula. A joint formula typically has glucosamine and chondroitin, and and such these nutrients influence a number of metabolic pathways, not just three.

Is a liquid joint formula preferable to capsules?
   Most, if not all, studies with glucosamine, chondroitin, or herbal combinations have been done with capsules or tablets, and in many cases these natural supplements have been found to be helpful in joint health. Therefore, I don't see the need to take a liquid joint formula. Plus, it is possible that nutrients in a liquid form may degrade faster and not have as long a shelf life.

Q. Is it okay to take a hyaluronic acid joint formula.
   A. I don't have a strong opinion on oral hyaluronic acid at this time.

Could you please let me know any Joint formula supplements that can be used safely in patient with kidney disease.
   Since little human research has been done with glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, and other joint supplements in those with kidney disease, we can't say for sure whether they are safe for long term use in those with kidney problems.

I was wondering whether arginine nutrient or carnitine nutrient would be of benefit in musculoskeletal conditions?
   Not that I am aware of.
