The US National Institute of Health funded an extensive study comprising 1,583 patients to evaluate these compounds. This study concluded “it seems prudent to tell our patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee that neither glucosamine nor chondroitin has been shown to be more efficacious than placebo for the treatment of knee pain”.
In addition, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons states “Don’t use glucosamine and chondroitin to treat patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee – Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate do not provide relief for patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee”.
Hyaluronic acid has long been recognized as a vital component of joint fluid, providing cushioning and lubrication for all joints. The safety and effectiveness of hyaluronic acid in treating degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis of the knee, and the associated pain, has been established in extensive clinical studies.
Based on these studies’ hyaluronic acid for direct injection into the knee has been approved by numerous regulatory authorities including Europe, USA, Japan, Canada and Australia. Hyaluronic acid and Osteoarthritis of the knee
Until recently the use and effectiveness of orally administered hyaluronic acid has been limited, the reasons being:
- the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the products was insufficient to achieve clinical significance
- the molecular size of the hyaluronic acid was inappropriate for absorption through the gastrointestinal tract
Extensive research was conducted in Germany to determine the optimal formulation and molecular size of hyaluronic acid to be orally absorbed. Based on this research DuoVital Joint Health and Mobility was developed. Studies in three clinical conditions were conducted. These controlled studies demonstrated effectiveness and safety as no adverse events were reported (learn more clinical studies).
This approach to the administration of hyaluronic acid has numerous advantages compared with the injectable form including:
- is not limited to the injected joint
- treats all joints with degenerative disease
- less intrusive with the associated reduced risks
- less expensive
- higher concentrations of hyaluronic acid can be administered
