Clinically Proven Joint Health Support
Walking. Shopping. Climbing stairs. Household chores. Q-actin™ supports joint flexibility, strength and comfort so individuals can more easily perform these and other everyday activities. These are the results of clinical studies evaluating Q-actin versus a placebo or glucosamine-chondroitin. Remarkably, in both studies, only 20 mgs of Q-actin was required to achieve significant improvements in joint health and function.
Q-actin Joint Function and Mobility
A recent clinical study in 91 adults with moderate joint health issues demonstrated Q-actin improved joint function and mobility significantly better than a placebo. The results were published in Current Rheumatology Reviews.
The study enrolled 101 subjects with moderate osteoarthritis, 91 of which were evaluable. Subjects were divided into three groups taking a placebo or 20 mgs or 100 mgs of Q-actin daily for six months. Following a baseline evaluation, subjects were evaluated at 30-day intervals using three clinically valid analytical models: the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Lequesne's Functional Index (LFI).
Both Q-actin groups experienced significant reductions in pain and improvements in other joint function parameters at every point of the study by every evaluation method. The Q-actin health benefits were dose dependent.
Q-actin Outperforms Glucosamine-Chondroitin
A randomized, double-blinded clinical study published in the Clinical Interventions in Aging demonstrated Q-actin was significantly more effective than glucosamine-chondroitin in relieving knee discomfort and increasing mobility.
The three-country study evaluated 122 men and women ages 40-75 with moderate joint health issues related to age. Study participants consumed either 1,350 mg of glucosamine-chondroitin or 10 mgs of Q-actin twice daily for six months.
Individuals were evaluated at 30, 60, 90, 120 and 180 days using WOMAC, VAS and LFI. Q-actin subjects reported significant joint health improvements at every evaluation period, compared with glucosamine-chondroitin.
The study demonstrates the ability of Q-actin to help restore, maintain and protect joint health, which is critical to older adults, elite and recreational athletes, and people struggling with body weight issues.
