glucosamine

Glucosamine

This is one of a number of substances called an amino sugar.

Unlike other forms of sugar in your body, amino sugars are part of the structure of your tissues, instead of used as a source of energy.

So glucosamine is involved in the formation of the nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones, ligaments, and heart valves.

It also plays a role in the mucous secretions of your digestive, respiratory, and urinary tracts.

Glucosamine is made in your body from the simple carbohydrate glucose and the amino acid glutamine.

It’s found in high concentrations in joint structures.

It’s also available as a supplement, in the form of glucosamine sulfate, which helps fight both the causes and symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Glucosamine has been studied in over 200 clinical trials.

Although not everyone in these studies responded to the supplements, most did.

For people with osteoarthritis of the knee, glucosamine was more effective than taking nothing, and reduced the likelihood of needing a knee replacement.

Glucosamine was also shown to help with injuries you’d get from exercise.

Athletes with recent knee injuries healed faster in terms of knee flexion and extension when using glucosamine compared to a group who took nothing.

It can also slightly reduce the destruction of cartilage and depression caused by taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are commonly prescribed for people with arthritis.

Glucosamine can be taken in conjunction with chondroitin sulfate for an even greater effect on osteoarthritis.

In addition to having benefits for people with osteoarthritis, supplemental glucosamine can be helpful for asthma, bursitis, candidiasis, food allergies, osteoporosis, respiratory allergies, tendinitis, vaginitis, and various skin problems.
