Joint Pain Supplements - Are they worth it?

Image Source - which.co.uk
Which? research shows that some supplement manufacturers are making misleading claims on their products - as a result, people could be wasting money on unnecessary food supplements.

Other manufacturers use clever language and font sizes to exaggerate the effect that some ingredients have.

So although only a small minority of people actually need supplements, a third of adults in our survey told us they regularly take them. The supplements industry was valued at £385 million in 2012.


Misleading claims

The most popular supplements people take are multivitamins, glucosamine supplements for joint health, and probiotic tablets and drinks.

However, all health claims relating to glucosamine and joint health have been rejected by the EU. Claims that probiotics improve digestive health were also rejected.

In the past five years, products (food, drink and supplements) that want to carry a health claim have had to submit the evidence behind that claim to the EU's European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). More than 44,000 health claims were originally submitted, and only 248 have so far been approved by the EU.
 

Supplements for joints

The EFSA panel rejected claims that glucosamine and chondroitin help support healthy joints, help support flexible joints and reduce inflammation in joints. However, 94% of adults in our survey who take glucosamine supplements believe that glucosamine supports healthy joints and cartilage.

  • Seven Seas JointCare Active heavily advertises the ingredients glucosamine, omega-3 and chondroitin on the front of the pack above the health claim 'supports muscles, bones & cartilage to keep you moving'. Underneath, in much smaller text, the packaging states 'with vitamins C & D, Manganese and Zinc' - these are the ingredients for which the health claim is authorised.
  • Optima ActivJuice Juice for Joints advertises glucosamine on the front of the pack with the health claim 'helps improve joint cartilage function'. On the back of the pack it says '...with glucosamine & vitamin C to provide a refreshing way to maintain normal function of cartilage in joints, bone, skin, teeth and blood vessels'. But this claim is only approved for vitamin C, not glucosamine.
Optima ActivJuice and Seven Seas JointCare active told us that their claims refer only to the specific ingredients that they are authorised for.

Glucosamine supplements can cost up to £1 a day. A multivitamin that contains vitamin C, D, manganese and zinc - the active ingredients in these supplements - can cost as little as 3p a day. This works out as up to £354 cheaper a year.

Which? says

Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said: 'Which? campaigned for health claims on these products to be backed up by scientific evidence, so it’s disappointing that manufacturers are using clever language to imply unproven benefits.

We would like to see all ambiguous and exaggerated claims completely removed from all food supplement packaging, so consumers can feel confident they are getting a fair deal in the products they buy.'

FLEXISEQ Gel Launched in UK - Pioneering joint pain treatment supports leading Arthritis charity

London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 3 December 2013

FLEXISEQ's proven efficacy comes with significant advantages as the product has no contra-indications, contains no drugs so cannot cause drug-to-drug interactions, and with over 6 million doses administered since launch there have been no reported systemic side effects.

FLEXISEQ is already successfully sold in the early pilot markets of Austria, Germany, Ireland, Malaysia and Singapore. Earlier this year, FLEXISEQ won the Innovation Award 2013 from the Federal Association of German Pharmacists. In June, FLEXISEQ launched in Ireland and became the fastest growing over-the-counter product that pharmacies there had seen in recent times.

UK Charity Launch

John Mayo, Chairman and Chief Executive of Pro Bono Bio said "I am proud to bring the world's first clinically proven nano-physical product for pain relief to the UK. For the UK Charity launch period, FLEXISEQ is exclusively available online via the Arthritis Research UK website http://www.arthritisresearchUK.org/Flexiseq and in 500 selected branches of LloydsPharmacy across the UK. This restricted launch is a unique way for us to provide a contribution to medical research by supplying Arthritis Research UK at a special price which allows them to sell to the public at the reduced price of £16.80 per pack and generate funds for the charity. LloydsPharmacy have also agreed to make a £1 donation to Arthritis Research UK for every tube they sell during this UK Charity launch period. We hope to contribute over £500,000 to Arthritis Research UK in this way and would like all sufferers of joint pain (or their friends and relatives) to order early for Christmas delivery and help Arthritis Research UK.”

The UK Patient Need

Dr Liam O'Toole, Chief Executive, Arthritis Research UK said, “We know that nearly nine million people in the UK have sought treatment for osteoarthritis, which is a painful and extremely debilitating condition. Current approaches to treating this chronic pain are inadequate, and we are interested in the potential of this new drug-free approach. We very much look forward to making FLEXISEQ available to the public on our website and hearing our patients' feedback. We welcome the contribution Pro Bono Bio and LloydsPharmacy are making towards our work as we fight to find new approaches to treating pain in osteoarthritis."

Commenting on the UK launch of FLEXISEQ, Nitin Makadia, LloydsPharmacy pain expert and pharmacist, said: “Pain management is one of our key areas of focus and we recognise that osteoarthritis is a widespread issue affecting an estimated 8.75 million people aged 45 years and over in the UK. Along with support we also believe it is important to offer our patients the best and most innovative healthcare products to help them manage their health. We are excited to be working with the FLEXISEQ team to bring this pioneering new product to our patients.”

More information is available for patients from a dedicated FLEXISEQ info line on 0800 098 7011.

Mode of Action

FLEXISEQ is different as it does not contain an active pharmaceutical ingredient but rather works through a patented physical mode of action because it increases the level of bio-lubrication in the affected joint. One of the features of OA is a depletion in the level of phospholipids in the joint, normally found in the liquid around the cartilage. These phospholipids play an important role in lubricating the joint and, as a consequence, their deficiency contributes to the pain, stiffness and loss of function inherent in OA. FLEXISEQ targets this root cause of osteoarthritis pain.

FLEXISEQ contains patented phospholipid vesicles that are formulated using Sequessome Technology® to be ultra-deformable, and have been shown to penetrate into the joint, after topical application and being allowed to dry, where they supplement the bio-lubrication in the synovial space. As there is no active pharmaceutical ingredient and as FLEXISEQ has a physical mode of action, it is registered as a medical device under the appropriate European legislation and therefore does not require a prescription.

FLEXISEQ: Clinical Evidence

Research from several clinical studies₂ proved that FLEXISEQ effectively improves joint mobility and eases pain for those suffering from osteoarthritis. One study of 1,300 patients, published in Rheumatology, found FLEXISEQ is as good for pain relief as a commonly prescribed drug, celecoxib, but with a much better safety profile.

Dr John Dickson, founder of the Primary Care Rheumatology Society and co-author of the paper, commented: "It is well recognised that effectively managing chronic pain, particularly in patients with other conditions and risk factors, is a massive challenge that GPs and patients face on a daily basis. I am delighted that FLEXISEQ is being launched in the UK. This topical treatment is drug-free and seems to have an excellent safety profile. In this study, FLEXISEQ was shown to be as effective as the routinely used oral NSAID, celecoxib, in reducing both pain and joint stiffness. FLEXISEQ can be used alongside a patient's oral medication. I understand that in markets where FLEXISEQ is already available it has been welcomed by healthcare professionals, patients and patient groups alike. There is already a lot of interest in the UK about this exciting new treatment."

Prof Philip G Conaghan of the University of Leeds, lead author of the Rheumatology paper, said: "Osteoarthritis is a common condition, especially in the growing number of elderly people. It causes chronic pain and stiffness which adversely affects patients' lives. The need for new treatment options is well recognised as existing treatments don't always work and many can cause serious side effects. Many OA patients are elderly and have additional health conditions that mean they are especially at risk of these side effects. Safety is therefore a key concern for new therapies and patients and healthcare professionals would welcome new treatment options which are effective and without such safety concerns."

Michael Earl, Chief Operating Officer of Pro Bono Bio said, "The proven physical mode of action and the lack of an active pharmaceutical ingredient give FLEXISEQ the best of both worlds: it works and it's safe. The lack of systemic side effects that have been recorded when drugs are used chronically, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, kidney failure, heart attack and stroke, together with a lack of drug interactions makes FLEXISEQ a particularly suitable option for many OA patients, who are elderly and may be suffering from other conditions and taking other medications, which complicate the choice of therapy for their painful joints. The problems with using older medications such as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in these patients are becoming increasingly well recognised following the research published in the Lancet₃ earlier this year, and so we believe that FLEXISEQ is a very valuable addition to the treatment options available."

Commercial Launch


At the end of January 2014, FLEXISEQ will have a full commercial launch and will be available via all LloydsPharmacy stores and all other good pharmacies as production catches up with anticipated demand from the UK's 8.75 million sufferers of osteoarthritis. It is anticipated that Arthritis Research UK will continue to sell FLEXISEQ from their website to continue raising money for important medical research.

Notes for editors
:

Sequessome Technology®

FLEXISEQ employs Pro Bono Bio's patented Sequessome Technology rather than an active pharmaceutical ingredient to target a root cause of the disease, relieving pain with comparable efficacy to celecoxib, a leading prescription drug used for treating OA pain. Sequessome Technology utilises nanostructures called Sequessome™ vesicles that cross the skin barrier after the gel's topical application and migrate through various tissues to the target joint. Once inside the joint, Sequessome vesicles accumulate on the damaged cartilage forming a lubricating layer.

This targeted, physical mode of action crucially means there are no drug-to-drug interactions with FLEXISEQ as it is not itself a drug and, as a result, it can be used by patients who may be taking a variety of medications for other diseases, without increasing their drug burden. FLEXISEQ is also a welcome option for patients considered 'at risk' from the more common side effects associated with NSAIDs for example, those with such conditions as high blood pressure, gastric disorders or asthma.

About Pro Bono Bio


Pro Bono Bio is an innovative healthcare and nano medical device company launched in 2011. Pro Bono Bio launched FLEXISEQ in Europe in 2012 and plans to launch two further new products for the treatment of inflammatory skin disorders in 2013/2014. These new products, ROSSOSEQ® and EXOSEQ™, are based on Sequessome Technology, the same technology that powers FLEXISEQ. Pro Bono Bio expects these to launch in Ireland in January 2014.

Pro Bono Bio has ambitious growth targets that will allow it to support a unique humanitarian mission. In 2012, it started that mission by supporting elderly (less well off) pilgrims from West Africa on the Hajj to Mecca, alleviating the joint pain caused by long periods of walking and kneeling. The support for the less wealthy Hajj pilgrims has continued in 2013 in Asia. Our Charity launch is a further example of our support for this mission.

Arthritis Research UK


Arthritis Research UK is dedicated to leading the fight against arthritis and committed to being at the forefront of international efforts to develop new treatments. As a charity needing to raise over £40 million each year to fund our work, we welcome the contribution Pro Bono Bio and Lloyds are making towards our work as we fight to find new approaches to treating pain in osteoarthritis.

About LloydsPharmacy

The company employs over 17,000 staff and dispenses over 150 million prescription items annually. The LloydsPharmacy pain service is free and no appointment is necessary.

New Rheumatoid Arthritis Drug Sarilumab Eases Symptoms, Slows Joint Destruction In Late Trial Phase

(Photo Courtesy of Shutterstock The new arthritis drug Sarilumab may slash symptoms independently as well as in combination with current frontline drugs.
A new type of treatment could slash symptoms for individuals suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Following a recent year-long trial, researchers have determined that the drug sarilumab may reduce pain and joint complications by up to 66 percent. The treatment was also shown to slow joint damage by 90 percentmore than the current standard drug therapy, methotrexate.

Medical researchers and developers confirmed last week that sarilumab will likely be of tremendous help for the 1.5 million U.S. adults currently living with the condition. "The initial results from this trial look quite promising in terms of reducing painful symptoms," a spokesman for Arthritis Research UK told The Daily Mail. "Although sarilumab is still under development and results of this study have not yet been published."

Sarilumab, which has been hailed by its developers as a medical breakthrough, limits the progression of the chronic condition by blocking an inflammatory protein called interleukin 6. The proposed therapy program involves one injection of the drug every two weeks.

Results from the latter stages of a year-long clinical trial suggest that the drug may work independently as well as in combination with standard treatments like methotrexate. Trial subjects who received a 150 milligram dose of sarilumab on top of their methotrexate dose reportedly saw within six months a 58 percent reduction of pain, swelling, and other symptoms associated with the condition. Similarly, subjects who received a 200 milligram dose saw a 66 percent reduction in symptoms.

Subjects who took sarilumab but not methotrexate reported a 20 percent reduction of symptoms. All participants reported improved mobility. "If this drug gives another option for those living with the disease to lead a fuller and more productive life then this can only be a positive development," a spokesman for the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) told reporters.

According to the National Institutes of Health, rheumatoid arthritis is characterized by limited mobility, stiffness, swelling, and chronic pain. It is usually caused by an inflammation of one or more joints. Aside from anti-inflammatory therapies, arthritis symptoms can be alleviated by a number of different lifestyle changes. For example, habitually getting eight to 10 hours of sleep may lessen the frequency as well as the intensity of the flare-ups. Similarly, losing excess weight may lead to a significant reduction in pain, particularly in legs and feet.

Instaflex Reviews - Uncover Fascinating Joint Help Replies!

Do Instaflex Joint Support Really work?

InstaflexDietary supplements are extremely troublesome to stay aware of. There are always new elements, or old ones, that have been discovered to treat this indication or diminish that pain.

Turmeric has been being utilized for a nearly infinite amount of medications for quite some time, in spite of the fact that as of late it has made its route into joint pain easing. While there is some distrust in respect to if Turmeric is compelling enough to mend throbbing joints, unmistakable joint alleviation brands, for example Instaflex tout turmeric as quite successful.

Turmeric is essential regarded as a zest that is regularly utilized as a part of cooking. It is a relative of the ginger root keeping in mind regularly reveled in culinary rings, it has numerous different utilizes too. Turmeric has been being utilized within India for medicinal explanations, despite the fact that principally because of the way that one of Turmeric's qualities is that it is hostile to, microbial. Over the previous 3-4 years however there have been numerous new clinical investigations of the characteristics of Turmeric, with a mixed bag of employments and requisitions.

The vast majority of the studies encompassing Turmeric are specifically identified with malignancy, or chemotherapy. While joint pain does assume a little part in the studies, the majority of the consideration is set on other unending diseases, for example Alzheimer's or diabetes. The truth is that Turmeric is against parasitic, hostile to microscopic organisms and mitigating, all of which are fairly advantageous in an assortment of medicinal employments. However, it is the mitigating lands that are attached to joint pain easing.

Read about the Best Joint Pain supplement

Joint pain is exceptionally troublesome to manage. Whether it is the SI Joints, knees, or little joints of the fingers, the pain could be powerful and consistent. Effectively evacuating aggravation is a basic part of joint pain easing. We were intrigued to check whether Turmeric was compelling enough to convey.

All around our examination of joint pain cures particular to Turmeric, we discovered that various heading brands hold Turmeric. Instaflex is maybe the most unmistakable of the brands, additionally Pain Defense Advanced Defense likewise holds the Asian zest. Puritan additionally conveys joint items that hold turmeric. What we considered fascinating, however is that a large number of the clients of Turmeric are unconvinced that it meets expectations. Turmeric when taking without anyone else present does not appear to be reliably viable. While it does decrease irritation in restricted limit, the centralization of Turmeric required far surpasses what most joint pills hold. It abandons you with additional inquiries that it replies.

Basically, there are clinical studies that infer that there may be some profit to utilizing Turmeric as a joint pain calming operator. The issue is that there appears to be next to no 'genuine' confirmation that it lives up to expectations. There are joint pill makers like Instaflex that swear it lives up to expectations, however aside from that next to no cement, recorded confirmation. While the items that hold turmeric may work to calm joint pain, as we would see it there is next to no confirmation to back that it is the turmeric that is making the alleviation. More likely, alternate fixings in these items are doing the calming and these Brands are essentially benefiting from the "sizzle" or ubiquity of Turmeric to offer their items.

As we would see it there are obviously better animated fixings out there to diminish joint pain. Do not get up to speed in the "build-up." If the animated parts don't have true, medicinal provisions you ought to be weary. Don't succumb to the tricks, utilization trusted and confirmed parts with a long, decently archived history or victory.

Bone and Joint Health National Awareness Week

An annual global event, Bone and Joint Health National Awareness Week is held October 12-20 with activities focused on disorders including arthritis, back pain, osteoporosis and trauma. The events and projects organized by individuals and organizations worldwide are designed to raise awareness of prevention, disease management and treatments as well as advances in a number of areas.

You will find activities to do and ways to become better informed below. But before that, take a look at some facts:

  • Nearly half the American population over the age of 18 - about 48 percent - are affected by musculoskeletal (bone and joint) conditions, according to The Burden of Musculoskeletal Conditions in the United States.
  • Bone and joint conditions are the most common cause of severe long-term pain and physical disability worldwide affecting hundreds of millions of people.
  • Musculoskeletal conditions include back pain, arthritis, traumatic injuries, osteoporosis and childhood conditions.
  • Unless actions are taken now, the global prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions is predicted to increase greatly due to increasing life expectancy, changes in risk factors and availability of appropriate prevention measures.
  • Musculoskeletal conditions can lead to significant disability plus diminished productivity and quality of life. Treatment and lost wage costs associated with musculoskeletal diseases in the U.S. alone was estimated at $950 billion in 2004 to 2006 - equal to 7.4 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).

Alleviate Joint Health Formula Customer Reviews

I have very bad arthritis in my knees and legs - I walked with a limp and could not bear the pain of standing for very long . I am under the care of a rheumatologist and taking Celebrex but it was not really helping that much so I received the advertisement for alleviate and decided to try it. I was amazed that after only 4 days I was walking without a limp I could bend my legs and actually stand without excruciating pain. My family and coworkers are amazed at the change in my knees and legs and so am I. I will continue to take this wonderful product and I will tell anybody to give it a try. I am not completely pain free but my pain is at a tolerable level now and I can thank alleviate for this drastic change in knees and legs..
By - rebecca p.

After all of the reviews I decided to try this. I need 2 knee replacements but can't afford it so I thought I had nothing to lose by trying this product. It isn't doing for me what it did for all the people that gave their rave testimonials. I am going to take all of them but if nothing changes I will be sending the bottles back for a refund. They would be worth the high price if they worked but after 2 months, nothing has changed.
By - JANE W.

These ingredients are known for reducing joint problems. The official site is too long to navigate and it also does not contain the list of ingredients and the security warning about the supplement is also missing.

Joint Supplements For Arthritis Pain

There's no known cure for osteoarthritis, but many people looking for pain relief are turning to joint supplements that contain glucosamine and chondroitin.

In fact, Americans spent $753 million on those over-the-counter supplements last year alone, according to the Nutrition Business Journal.

Consumer Reports tested 16 popular glucosamine-chondroitin supplements, evaluating three samples of each.

First the samples were tested to see whether they contained the amount of glucosamine and chondroitin that the label indicated.

Testers also conducted a dissolution test, which measures how well tablets and caplets break down in water within an hour, and they tested for heavy metals such as mercury and lead.

Tests show that none of the supplements contained worrisome levels of lead or other toxic metals and all of the products contained their labeled amounts of glucosamine, but Nature Made Triple Flex Triple Strength averaged only 65 percent of the labeled amount of chondroitin.

Six others averaged 79 to 87 percent. And of the 16 tested, two did not dissolve sufficiently, indicating that the ingredients might not be fully absorbed in the body. They were the Trigosamine Max Strength and 365 Everyday Value Extra Strength from Whole Foods.

However, nine did meet Consumer Reports' quality criteria. The least expensive is Kirkland Signature Clinical Strength tablets from Costco.

Consumer Reports suggests checking with your doctor before trying joint supplements, particularly if you're taking blood thinners or if you're allergic to shellfish. Glucosamine is often made from shrimp shells, and it can increase the effects of blood thinners.
