Glucosamine sulphate is a naturally occurring chemical that is present in the fluid surrounding your joints, called synovial fluid. Basically, your body needs glucosamine to produce the rubbery cartilage that surrounds the joints, the resistant ligaments that connect joints and bone, and to produce the fluid that cushions the joints.
The joints are constantly subjected to numerous types of stress that can permanently damage these important structures. Continuous stress on the joints can cause numerous health problems, like swelling and stiffness, that ultimately limit your range of motion and cause joints pain. To make matters worse, these symptoms can then escalate to more serious bone diseases, like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Can glucosamine sulphate improve my joint function?
According to extensive research and clinical trials, glucosamine repairs and promotes the formation of cartilage, which helps regain mobility, reduces swelling and pain, and can also help reverse the effects of osteoarthritis. A recently carried out study evaluated the effects of glucosamine on patients with acute knee injury. After 28 days of research, the patients that were supplemented with glucosamine experienced significant improvement in knee joint flexibility and extension, compared with the test group that was given a placebo.
Can I take glucosamine even if I never experienced joint problems?
You can and you should. Most symptoms of joint conditions are felt over time, as you age.
The body's natural ability to regenerate cartilage and produce synovial fluid is negatively affected with age. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, for example, are common bone diseases that may only manifest their symptoms later in life. For people who are overweight, the risk of suffering joint damage from carrying excess weight is even greater, and it tends to appear at a certain point in life, becoming progressively worse from then onwards. Taking a glucosamine supplement has proven to be one of the most effective ways to prevent these problems.
