GLOSSARY
GLUCOSAMINE

Glucosamine

 

How does it work?

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance required for the maintenance and support of joint tissue such as articular cartilage, tendons and synovial fluid.1 Blood vessels, heart valves and mucous ssecretions also contain glucosamine.2 Glucosamine is used in the body to stimulate production of proteoglycans and synovial fluid which aids in the lubrication and shock-absorption of joint tissue.3 This function relates to its chondroprotective and anti-inflammatory activity known to assist in the treatment of joint and bone diseases such as osteoarthritis.4

What results can be expected?

There is strong evidence to show that glucosamine may assist in the relief and reduction of symptoms associated with osteoarthritis, as well as slowing disease progression through anti-inflammatory and protective actions.5 Glucosamine is therefore an effective treatment for pain relief and inflammation of joints and cartilage.6 Glucosamine has also shown to be of benefit in those with inflammatory bowel disease such as crohns and ulcerative colitiis, offering protection to the bowel mucosa and a reduction in intestinal tissue inflammation.7
