Glucosamine InformationGlucosamine, which occurs naturally in the body, plays a key role in the construction of cartilage -- the tough connective tissue that cushions the joints. Glucosamine stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans (the key structural components of cartilage) as well as the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage. Sulfur is necessary for making and repairing cartilage.
Glucosamine may be effective in treating and possibly slowing the progression of osteoarthritis. This is a type of arthritis caused by continuous wear and tear on the joints leading to inflammation, breakdown, and eventual loss of cartilage. The tissues most affected by osteoarthritis are the weight bearing joints, such as the knees and hips, as well as the joints in the hands.
- An effective treatment for osteoarthritis
- Helps minimize pain longer than traditional NSAIDS, with fewer side effects
- May be beneficial in the treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, two inflammatory bowel diseases, in children who do not respond to standard medical treatments
Glucosamine NotesGlucosamine sulfate is the form used in most research studies. It is believed to be the best source because it provides the sulfur necessary for making and repairing cartilage. The Dietary Supplements Information Bureau recommends a daily dosage of approximately 1500 mg of Glucosamine Sulfate for optimum health.
