Two popular joint supplements 'don't work'

Two popular supplements taken by many Irish people do not work, according to research.

The supplements glucosamine and chondroitin are either taken on their own or in combination to reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis in hips and knees.

The researchers, led by Professor Peter Jüni at the University of Bern in Switzerland, argue that given these supplements are not dangerous, "we see no harm in having patients continue these preparations as long as they perceive a benefit and cover the cost of treatment themselves".

Osteoarthritis of the hip or knee is a chronic condition which is mainly treated with painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Treatments that not only reduce pain but slow the progression of the disease would be desirable, they wrote in the 'British Medical Journal'.

Professor Jüni and colleagues analysed the results of 10 published trials involving 3,803 patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis. They found no clinically relevant effect of chondroitin, glucosamine, or their combination on perceived joint pain or on joint space narrowing.

Why Is Everyone Talking About Lyprinol?

The Miracle Oil From The Sea

“Lyprinol” which has been described as “The Miracle Oil From The Sea” is not a medicine but a pure natural mussel oil with none of the side-effects commonly associated with traditional fish oils, steroids or prescription anti inflammatory’s. Lyprinol is a natural oil comprising a rare combination of lipid groups and unique Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is totally safe and will not interfere with any medication you may be taking and can even be taken by children.

Lyprinol, which is imported and distributed in Ireland by East Coast International, comes from the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel, which has long been recognised by the Maori people for its nutritional qualities. It is produced by a gentle extraction process to remove the pure oils. This process not only guards against allergies and food intolerances, but the stabilisation process used in preparation of Lyprinol protects the rare mix of lipids and Omega-3 fatty acids that are present in the live mussel. Because the Lyprinol oils are closer to their natural state, they are more easily metabolised by the body, thus allowing all the benefits to be experienced from a lower intake. As a result of this Lyprinol is said to be 200 to 300 times more effective than other fish oils, or similar products without any of their side effects or allergic reactions.

Lyprinol is being talked about countrywide and is proving itself to be a very popular natural supplement, being taken by more and more people every day with great results. Indeed more and more International Sports people are turning to the wonderful benefits of Lyprinol.

Lyprinol has undergone thorough research worldwide for over 20 years and there have been many clinical trials carried out on Lyprinol’s safety and effectiveness. These trials have been published and verified by many of the worlds top medical peers in their respective fields.

“Lyprinol is the most effective marine oil available. It is far superior to conventional pharmaceuticals, vegetable – based omega -3 oils and fish oils” Dr Georges M. Halpern, M.D., PH.D,

Lyprinol is:

  • - Pure Natural oil
  • - No Additives
  • - No allergic reactions, no after taste or repeating
  • - Wont effect any medication you may be taking
  • - No side effects
  • - Safe for all ages including children

So many people who try Lyprinol are just thrilled with the results. Every day we are receiving excellent feedback from people who are taking Lyprinol, here are just a few:

“I have been suffering from aches and pains in my knees which causes me great discomfort. I embarked on a course of Lyprinol 2 weeks ago and I am thrilled to say that in this short period of time my knees have really improved."Ciaran, Dublin

"I have noticed a big improvement after only a week on Lyprinol. I can’t believe it, I would like to order more Lyprinol straight away please, Im going to tell everyone about this" Gilbert, Cork

Julie from Dublin says “My 20 Year old daughter has been taking Lyprinol for some weeks now and we have had amazing success. I feel as we have had such good results I wish more people could take advantage of this truly wonder oil.”

“About six weeks ago I saw an ad for Lyprinol, and there was something about it that had an air of legitimacy so I embarked on a course of Lyprinol that I have found to be truly life-altering. It used to take me about two minutes just to get out of bed in the morning. Now it takes just 15 seconds. Lyprinol has really loosened me up. When I get out of my wheelchair, there is no pain or stiffness anymore. I’m even working towards walking again.” These changes have made a huge difference to my quality of life, and they are something that I attribute squarely to Lyprinol. It has to be Lyprinol as I haven’t changed anything else in my life. Lyprinol has added a whole new dimension to my life. It has given me back my joie de vivre.” Paul Strahan
