Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Hyaluronic acid
Research on Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a new, hot topic with universities and private investors in health care. Multiple medical studies have been completed.
One such study was the Glucosamine Chondroitin Arthritis Inter trail , (GAIT) study, founded by the Institutes of Health. The GAIT study followed 1,600 patients with knee arthritis. The results suggest that patients taking glucosamine and chondroitin had 79.2% pain relief while patients taking arthritis medication (NSAIDS) had only 69.4% pain relief. This study shows significant improvement through the use of glucosamine and condroitin.
At Orthoway MD, we are at the cutting edge of joint pain treatment. We are studying the effect of our products on patients undergoing arthroscopic knee procedures in hoped to show a scientific advantage on recovery time for those taking Orthoway MD products.
Pure Hyaluronic Acid
What is Hyaluronic acid or HA?
Hyaluronic Acid is found in all connective tissue, joints, joints spaces, and tissue surfaces. The highest levels are found in the synovial fluid of all joints and in the skin. The level of hyaluronic acid in the human body declines with age, causing problems with the structural integrity of joints. Hyaluronic acid is important in the lubrication of joints, integrity of tissues, elasticity of skin, clarity of vision, and molecular transport between cells. Hyaluronic acid fills the intercellular space between collagen and other cells, providing support and the essential framework for tissues. In the joint, Hyaluronic acid also acts as a shock absorber for the cartilage and a structural stabilizer.
The Hyaluronic acid used in the Orthoway MD products is produced through a cutting edge, natural bio-fermentation process that derives Hyaluronic Acid from an extracellular protein. This laboratory-controlled process yields the purest, highest quality Hyaluronic acid on the market. Many of the other companies on the market derive their HA from animal sources which leads to inconsistency in the quality of the product and lower absorption rates.
A survey of people taking HA reported favorable results in 93% of cases. Joint problems involving knees, shoulders, back, hips, fingers, and ankles were consistently revealed with the first two weeks of therapy. This is in sharp contrast to other joint supplements, which require many months to show a noticeable effect. The big advantage to HA is the noticeable difference within 7 to 14 days.
