Osteoarthritis is one of the most common complaints that presents to our office on a daily basis which fortunately can be treated effectively with a supplement known as Glucosamine sulfate.
In the past few decades, extremely favorable and extensive research has shown that Glucosamine sulfate at the pharmaceutical grade level may have tremendous therapeutic effects that will mitigate both the pain and progression of the disease, Osteoarthritis. The study also concluded that many of the participants had reversal of the cartilaginous destruction proven by x-ray analysis. This research was born out of successful outcomes from animal studies and application in veterinarian practice showing remarkable improvements in pets of all breeds. This led to the FDA funding a 22 million dollar double-blind randomized placebo controlled trial which in turn was followed up by many other large studies showing efficacy rates superior to all other oral therapeutic pharmacological medications.
Our facility prides itself in supplying only the absolute purest and most effective pharmaceutical grade Glucosamine on the market. Please don’t hesitate to ask the Doctor about your joint pain. I cannot make this point more clear that buying cheap supplements will result in expensive urine.
