Glucosamine chondroitin sulfate complex, also called the “OCEAN FORMULA”, offers the synergistic effect of a number of substances from the sea, all known for their anti-inflammatory properties.
All the active ingredients of this product are of marine origin. Glucosamine sulfate is normally manufactured by the human body. Its function is to stimulate the production of glycosaminoglycans, which are key structural components of cartilage, and to promote the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage.
As some people age, they lose the ability to manufacture sufficient levels of glucosamine and the result is cartilage destruction with pain, deformity and limitation of movement. There are no natural food sources of glucosamine.
Commercially available sources of glucosamine are derived from the exo-skeleton of shrimp, lobster and crabs. Glucosamine comes in three different forms, glucosamine sulphate, glucosamine hydrochloride and N-acetyl-glucosamine.
The glucosamine sulfate is proven in human studies to be the preferred form, both in regards to absorption, distribution and elimination, and in regards to its clinical effect.
Glucosamine sulfate’s beneficial effects have been proven in many clinical studies.
It stimulates the production of substances necessary for proper joint function and is responsible for joint repair. Chondroitin sulfate is found in most animal tissues, especially around the joints.
For supplementation it is usually derived from shark cartilage. It works synergistically with glucosamine to protect cartilage from premature breakdown, and to stimulate the production of glucosaminoglycans and collagen needed for healthy new cartilage.
Sea cucumber extract is another compound from the sea, that is commonly used in the treatment of arthritis. In Australia it is an approved over-the-counter arthritis remedy, and several clinical studies, conducted in Australia, have shown its effectiveness.
OceanFormula™ is a scientifically advanced combination of anti-inflammatory agents, working together synergistically, and relieving pain, reducing stiffness and repairing damaged cartilage in a natural way.
It is a true nutriceutical with outstanding safety. Results are generally experienced within 3 to 6 weeks of use.
