Composed of glucose (a sugar) and glutamine (an amino acid), glucosamine is utilized by chondrocytes to form glycosaminoglycans, or Glycosaminoglycans and Derivatives for Treatment of Arthritis
GSG's, and proteoglycans. GSG's help to bind water in cartilage, increasing resiliency. Therefore, glucosamine may actually help your body repair damaged or eroded cartilage. There are three forms of glucosamine; glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride and N-acetyl-glucosamine. Administered orally, close to 90 percent of glucosamine sulfate is usually absorbed, and since it occurs naturally in the body, it is the most commonly used form of glucosamine. Research in Portugal involving 1,208 arthritis patients taking 1500 mg of glucosamine daily showed marked improvement of symptoms, which continued for 6-12 weeks after treatment ended. Glucosamine has been the subject of 20 double blind studies, over 300 scientific articles and is registered as a drug in many foreign countries as a treatment for osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin, a glycosaminoglycan, bonds with collagen to form the basis of connective tissue. It helps attract fluid into proteoglycans, thereby bringing nutrients into the cartilage and providing shock absorption. While glucosamine helps manufacture and maintain cartilage, chondroitin keeps cartilage from becoming malnourished, drier, thinner and more fragile? Therefore, chondroitin may aid in healthy joint function. It is believed that, as we age, glucosamine and chondroitin levels in the body are reduced, which is why supplementation may hold the answer to joint and cartilage maintenance.
