Trigosamine for healthy joints
Trigosamine is a fairly new treatment on the supplement market that claims to relieve joint pain caused by deterioration. In addition to pain relief, Trigosamine also claims to build and maintain cartilage, the loss of which is often the cause of most pain-related cases.
Trigosamine is produced by the company PatentHealth. PatentHealth was born in 2001 and has since become a leader in its industry, focusing on three fundamental principles: quality, innovation and customer service. PatentHealth is located in Canton, Ohio and is known for producing ‘nutriceuticals’ and over-the-counter medicines. Nutraceuticals are medicinal derivatives of food or herbal/food products that are made into natural supplements or medical treatments. Other brands of products manufactured by PatentHealth include Apatrim and Fluidjoint.
Trigosamine is a fairly new addition to the world of natural supplements that focus on joint pain relief. It is the result of combining three pre-existing specific formulas, hyaluronate, chondroitin and glucosamine. These three substances exist naturally within the human body. Without these three substances, people would not be able to function or move without experiencing extreme degrees of pain. Hyaluronate is the main lubricant responsible for keeping joints super slippery and resilient within the human body. It makes it possible for the joints to glide smoothly and comfortably over each other. Studies have also shown that synthetic hyaluronate, such as that available in Trigosamine, is easily absorbed by the human body and is readily available through the bloodstream to joints that lack this important fluid. The two remaining components of trigosamine, glucosamine and chondroitin, are also integral components of body cartilage. Glucosamine itself is a necessary precursor for the production of glycosaminoglycans, which are major components of articular cartilage. Supplemental glucosamine has been shown to help prevent degeneration of body cartilage and has been shown to be a successful treatment for arthritis. Also, with the body, the glycosaminolglycans produced from the original glucosamine combine with chondroitin to produce more chondroitin sulfate, which in turn is also an important structural component of cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate provides much of cartilage’s ability to resist compression and is therefore an important substance in the maintenance and production of cartilage within the human body. The combination of these two substances within Trigosamine serves to supplement the body’s natural production in case it does not produce enough to maintain the internal cartilage. By providing the body with additional sources of these two important substances, it can not only repair damaged cartilage, but also prevent further damage by providing the building blocks for additional lubrication.
The effects of trigosamine take several weeks to be noticed. This is believed to be because your body needs several weeks to build up levels of each of the three ingredients in order to fully supplement its own stores. Although glucosamine and chondroitin are generally believed to be fairly well tolerated by most people, the hyaluronate compound appears to have effects in a small percentage of people that may include bloating, gas, nausea, and cramping. These have been of different degrees and the specific circumstances that can cause them to appear in each individual have not yet been determined. As some of the derivatives used to artificially create the ingredients are also manufactured from forms of shellfish, it is recommended that people with allergies or asthma consult a doctor before taking Trigosamine. However, most people who have tried the drug find it highly effective. With reports of people with bone-to-bone contact being able to increase their daily walking ability from almost nothing to 3 miles in a matter of months, and one subject even reporting experiencing pain relief in as little as 4 days, it’s easy to see how Trigosamine could become an attractive, natural alternative to many of today’s joint pain medications.
