Below are some recent questions we've received regarding iMove Joint Supplement for Humans, including answers from our team.
would you please tell me what the capsule shell is made of.
The capsules are made from bovine gelatin.
I hope this helps.
Are they suitable for vegetarians
This contains seafood extracts (Green-lipped Mussel) so it depends on the definition of vegetarian.
Could you advise whether this will interact with warfarin or medication for Hypertension? GP is happy that the glucosamine is okay, which i take already.
We are not qualified to offer advice on human health so it you should ask your GP about this product specifically, though I expect it would be OK for you.
What's the difference between the human and dog supplement
The human supplement contains some extra vitamin and mineral ingredients which are thought to help people. The dog product does not have these but they are not deemed important in this supplement. (Dogs make their own vitamin C and do not need it in their diet for instance.) The dog product also has liver flavouring!
How do the ingredients get to the joints. Are they not destroyed by the digestive process? Somewhat sceptical about all food supplements
Perfectly good question and a degree of scepticism is entirely appropriate. Hyaluronic acid has a large polymer structure and a high molecular weight. It is exactly the sort of compound which should be broken down into much smaller molecules by the digestive process before any absorption can take place. However there have been various experiments to investigate this and they do seem to show that some hyaluronic acid is absorbed and does get to the joints. (According to one experiment, radio-labelled hyaluronic acid given orally to rats did make it all the way to the joints after a single oral administration. Other experiments, including some in people, have shown absorption does occur.) It seems that a proportion of the large molecules do get absorbed, depending on other compounds present which can carry them into the enterocytes. I agree that is odd, but if it happens, it happens.
The main ingredient in the product is glucosamine and this is classed as an "amino sugar" and a "monosaccharide". This is the sort of size of molecule normally produced by the digestive process, ready for absorption through the intestinal wall. From there it gets into the blood stream and is transported to the liver. The liver could perhaps filter it out of the blood and metabolise it into something different. However it does seem that a good proportion of the absorbed glucosamine gets into the general, systemic circulation and so to the blood supply of the joints. Boosting blood levels of this sort of thing does make them more available for incorporation into joint structures when growth or repair is causing a heavy demand.
None of the above is really getting to the point though. What really matters is whether or not the symptoms of stiffness and soreness etc from the joints are improved or not. A theoretical mechanism of action is helpful, but that would not mean that any of these things actually work at all, just that they could do. I think that the evidence is there, but it is not conclusively proven in a scientific sense. Clinical trials of the various products sometimes show statistical benefit over placebo and some do not. The best conclusion we can draw from the evidence available is that these supplements do seem to provide symptomatic relief for some individuals and in some circumstances, but this is not consistent. (Some trials have tried sending dogs over pressure plates to see how much weight they put on different limbs and I am told that these have shown a statistically significant improvement in treated dogs.) I think that when much more work has been done, the picture will be about the same. Sometimes they work, sometimes they do not. Predicting which cases they work for will be the next step. Meantime, they seem to be safe enough even when they do not work, so at least that side of things is not a concern.
Could you give me the quantities in milligrams of the ingredients in imove tabs. Thankyou.
One capsule contains on average:
150mg Green lipped mussel extract
1.5mg Hyaluronic acid
2.5 mg Vitamin E
12.5mg Vitamin C
do they come in larger packs, as my dogs do (90)s if so how much are they,
Unfortunately at this time the only pots that are available contain 90 capsules.
