Trigosamine is a fairly new treatment to the market of supplements which 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 to blame for most pain-related cases.
Trigosamine is produced by the company PatentHealth. PatentHealth came into inception in 2001 and has since become a leader in its industry, focusing on three main principles: Quality, Innovation and Customer Service. PatentHealth is located in Canton, Ohio and is known for producing ‘nutriceuticals’ as well as over-the-counter drugs. Nutriceuticals are medicinal derivatives of food or food/herbal products that are manufactured in natural supplements or medical treatments. Other products brands manufactured by PatentHealth include Apatrim and Fluidjoint.
Trigosamine is a fairly new addition to the world of natural supplements which target joint pain relief. It is the result of combining three specific pre-existing 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 primary lubricant responsible for maintaining super slippery and resilient joints within a human body. It makes it possible for joints to slide smoothly and comfortably over each other. Studies have also shown that synthetic hyaluronate, such as that which is available in Trigosamine, is easily absorbed by the human body and made readily available through the blood stream to joints which lack this important fluid. The two remaining components of Trigosamine, glucosamine and chrondroitin, are both also integral components of bodily cartilage. Glucosamine itself is a precursor required for the production of glycosaminolglycans, which are major components of joint cartilage. Supplemental glucosamine has been shown to help prevent the degeneration of bodily cartilage and has been demonstrated as a successful treatment for arthritis. Furthermore, with the body, the glycosaminolglycans produced from the original glucosamine are then combined with chondroitin to further produce chrondroitin sulfate, which in turn is also an important structural component of cartilage. Chrondroitin sulfate provides much of the 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 the event that it is not producing enough to maintain the cartilage within. By providing the body with additional sources of these two important substances, it can not only repair damaged cartilage, but prevents further injury to it as well by providing the building blocks to produce additional lubrication.
Trigosamine’s effects take several weeks to notice. It is thought that this is because your body requires several weeks of building up levels of each of the three ingredients in order to completely supplement its own reserves. While glucosamine and chondroitin both are generally believed to fairly well tolerated by most individuals, however, the hyaluronate compound appears to have effects on a small percentage of people that may include bloating, gas, nausea and cramping. These have been of varying degrees and the specific circumstances which may 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 those with allergies or asthma consult a physician prior to taking Trigosamine. However, the majority of individuals who have tried the medication tout it as highly effective. With reports of persons with bone on bone contact being able to increase their daily ability to walk from almost nothing to up to 3 miles within a matter of months, and one subject even having reported experiencing pain relief in as little as 4 days, it is easy to see how Trigosamine could become an appealing, natural, alternative to many of today’s current joint pain medications.
