Viartril®-S is the Crystalline Glucosamine Sulfate. It is the original and only Glucosamine Sulfate that has been fully tested in clinical trials for safety and efficacy.Clinical studies and the world-wide clinical experience have shown that Viartril®-S relieves the symptoms (pain and function limitation) of osteoarthritis (1). Recent, state-of-the-art clinical trials have also demonstrated that Viartril®-S is the first compound that, when given for long-term treatment courses (i.e. at least 3 years), can decrease the progression of osteoarthritis (2,3).
Each sachet contains:
Crystalline Glucosamine sulfate 1884.0 mg
Equivalent to: Glucosamine sulfate 1500.0 mg
Sodium Chloride 384.0 mg
How does Viartril®-S work?
Anabolic-Effect – Viartril®-S stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans, the building blocks of the Cartilage Matrix
Anti-Inflammatory & Anti-Catabolic – Viartril®-S depress cartilage degradation activities by inhibiting the action of catabolic enzymes
What is Glucosamine Sulfate?
Glucosamine Sulfate is the salt of the natural amino-sugar glucosamine, which is normally synthesized in the healthy body and is the preferred substances that form the cartilage matrix that are essential for cartilage health and function.
How much glucosamine should one take daily?
According to the GUIDE studies published, Glucosamine Sulfate at the Oral once-daily dose of 1500mg is the preferred symptomatic medication in knee OA
1 x Sachet (1500mg)/day
3 x Capsules (500mg)/day
How long does it take for Viartril®-S to work?
As Viartril®-S works at the root of the problem, it will take within 2 weeks to 4 weeks to observe the improvement in pain and function .
What is the optimal treatment duration with Viartril®-S?
Clinical studies have shown that the optimal short-term treatment duration with Viartril®-S should be at least 3 months. However, recent long-term trials have shown that when taken continuously for at least 3 years, Viartril®-S can prevent the progression of both symptom and joint structure changes, without major safety concerns
Viartril®-S contains sodium: Is it contraindicated in hypertension?
The sodium chloride (NaCl) in Viartril®-S is to stabilize the Glucosamine Sulfate through crystallization.NaCl content is 0.128g in each 500mg capsule. Therefore, the recommended daily dosage of capsules contain 0.384g NaCl (similar to 1 sachet).This is small compared with our standard daily intake of 6-10g of NaCl. For a hypertensive patient, a mild dietary sodium restriction of up to 5g NaCl is recommended. Therefore, the small quantity of sodium in Viartril®-S will not affect it. No health authority has ever contraindicated Viartril®-S in hypertension.
Does Viartril®-S impairs glucose metabolism and/or is contraindicated in diabetic patients?
Both short-term and long-term (up to 3 years) clinical studies with Viartril®-S have shown that glucose plasma levels are not modified in normal patients, or in those with relatively high baseline glucose levels, or even in diabetics. No health authority has ever contraindicated Viartril®-S in diabetics
