JOINT REPAIR VEGAN provides one of the salt forms of the amino sugar glucosamine, which is a constituent of cartilage proteoglycans. Glucosamine is required for the synthesis of glycoproteins, glycolipids, and glycosaminoglycans (also known as ucopolysaccharides). These carbohydrate-containing compounds are found in tendons, ligaments, cartilage, synovial fluid, mucous membranes, structures in the eye, blood vessels, and heart valves. Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate metabolism of chondrocytes in the articular cartilage and synovial cells in the synovial tissues.
Clinical trials show that orally taking glucosamine sulfate significantly improves symptoms of pain and improves joint function compared to placebo in patients experiencing knee pain and stiffness. Glucosamine sulfate supplementation has been shown to decrease pain Scores by about 28% to 41% and improve joint functionality scores by 21% to 46%.
