From: Comparison of glucosamine sulfate and a polyherbal supplement for the relief of osteoarthritis of the knee: a randomized controlled trial [ISRCTN25438351]

Vital Signzz Glucosamine Wk. 0 Glucosamine Wk. 8 Reparagen Wk. 0 Reparagen Wk. 8
Pulse Rate 76.0 ± 1.0 76.8 ± 0.7 78.1 ± 1.2 75.4 ± 1.0
Systolic BP 130 ± 3 128 ± 2 128 ± 2 127 ± 1
Diastolic BP 81 ± 1 80 ± 1 83 ± 1 81 ± 1
Respiration Rate 17.8 ± 0.4 17.7 ± 0.4 17.3 ± 0.3 17.9 ± 0.4
  1. Data expressed as a mean ± SEM. Units of measure were: Pulse rate (beats per min), systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP, mm Hg), respiration rate (breaths per minute). There were no significant differences between baseline and week 8 values with these treatments. As the analysis is on a paired basis before and after completing the protocol the analysis is per protocol, glucosamine n = 41, reparagen n = 38.
