Is a naturally occurring non toxic molecule which is essential in the production of cartilage, joint fluid, tendons and ligaments.
Supplementing with glucosamine provides one of the most important raw materials for the synthesis and healing of cartilage. It is shown that orally supplemented glucosamine is well absorbed from the gut, incorporated into joint cartilage and is able to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. Glucosamine supplementation actually "feeds"
and promotes the healing process with out the risk of further damage to joints.
Dosage of 10 gram per day until benefit is noted then gradually reduce to a maintenance dose. Increase again if needed. It is important to remember that glucosamine is a nutritional supplement, not a drug. It may take from 2-8 weeks before a response is evident. Glucosamine has been shown to function more effectively in the presence of a source of sulphur such as MSM.
