If you take or are considering taking a Glucosamine supplement for Arthritis or other chronic joint problem, the results of several recently published studies may prompt you to reconsider your approach. The effectiveness of Glucosamine has been controversial for years and these recent studies provide new evidence that Glucosamine does not provide the benefit it was thought to offer.
Glucosamine, a popular supplement for arthritis, osteoarthritis, and joint deterioration has shown no long-term beneficial effect according to a study of 1583 patients conducted by a team of medical doctors in cooperation with the University of Utah School of Medicine. The results of this study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in February of 2006 shed fresh new light on the lack of effectiveness of these controversial Glucosamine products. Glucosamine has been the number one selling dietary supplement in the United States for joint problems since the late 1990's. This study confirms that Glucosamine is not the answer people once thought it was.
As a medical doctor, I now recommend a more natural approach that focuses on providing the body with the right nutritional support to promote healthy joints.
According a recent study from Harvard University of 22,000 patients in the Mediterranean Region, they found individuals who were aging but still extremely healthy. In fact, the University of Sweden confirmed that certain elements of the Greek diet actually help to improve joint problems dramatically. These studies indicate that it is possible to get relief from joint problems naturally without Glucosamine or Chondroitin.
There is an alternative solution for those suffering from joint conditions. I recommend a product developed by Greek Island Labs called 'Natural Joint'. This supplement is a unique blend of 37 natural vegetarian ingredients based on the traditional elements of the Greek diet that have been proven effective in the fight against joint problems. I prefer this product over Glucosamine because it does not contain any ingredients that cause an increase in blood sugar levels. This is truly a natural approach to joint health that is generating considerable attention in the medical community.
The product has even been featured recently in several prominent health magazines and the Physicians' Desk Reference for Non-Prescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements.
As a medical doctor in practice for 24 years, this is the first time that I have seen a natural product that is clinically proven to reduce joint problems and improve flexibility and mobility. In fact, in a clinical study conducted by AMA Laboratories, Natural Joint demonstrated a 51.1% average reduction in joint problems in just 5 days. I even recommended it to my own father! Greek Island Labs' Natural Joint is one of the most exciting new products to hit the market in years. Take a moment to watch the video presentation below and learn more about joint health.
