Cosamin® DS Again Shown to be Effective in an International Multi-Center Study
Provenza, et al. Study Compares Cosamin DS to Brazilian Prescription Brand
Edgewood, MD – September 17, 2014. Cosamin® DS Joint Health Dietary Supplement was chosen as the comparator in a human clinical study recently published by Provenza et al. in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Rheumatology.
The international head-to-head study, carried out in Brazil with more than 900 participants, showed that our dietary supplement Cosamin DS, which contains glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate, and the Brazilian prescription brand, which contains glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate, are equally effective, with statistically significant results achieved. Further, no significant alterations in laboratory values assessing safety were noted, including fasting glycemia.
“The authors make a point to stress 'there are concerns on the purity of glucosamine/chondroitin preparations sold as dietary supplements.'” said Dr. Robert Henderson, Chairman of Nutramax Laboratories. “Cosamin DS, since its inception, has been the gold standard when it comes to quality.”
“My father, Dr. Robert Henderson, developed, patented, and brought to the market the first glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate joint health product, Cosamin” said Dr. Troy Henderson, President and CEO of Nutramax Laboratories Consumer Care, Inc. “It remains a high-quality, trusted brand backed by clinical studies.”
“For over two decades we have taken pride in knowing our Cosamin brand contains quality ingredients with formulations rooted in rigorous and sound science”, added Dr. Brian Cornblatt, Medical Director and Director of Product Development for Nutramax Laboratories Consumer Care, Inc. “Here we have a truly impressive study, with more than 900 participants recruited from 16 different sites. We work tirelessly to offer the public a brand they can trust and it was nice to see Cosamin's efficacy again substantiated in this study.”
