75% of people who take glucosamine get relief from arthritis pain & inflammation. It can even be taken as a preventative for those who want to maintain the health of their joints before they get symptoms.
Glucosamine is a precursor molecule for the formation of cartilage, the connective tissue disk that acts as a cushion and eliminates friction in your joints. It also forms the hair, skin, nails, eyes, tendons, bones, ligaments and heart valves. As we age our ability to make glucosamine decreases and loss of glucosamine decreases the integrity of cartilage. In joints, that results in less support, cushioning and more friction, like wear-and-tear injury. Glucosamine also has anti-inflammatory properties, which help the joint to repair itself after injury.
Studies show that glucosamine supplementation improves joint function and decreases pain in individuals suffering from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine can decrease the destruction of cartilage that occurs when arthritis sufferers use unnatural anti-inflammatory products. Natural health practitioners also recommend glucosamine for joint injury, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, bursitis, tendonitis and skin problems.
Glucosamine has no toxicity associated with it. Glucosamine may cause stomach upset in some very sensitive individuals, but this is quite rare. Some glucosamine is sourced from shellfish and individuals with shellfish allergies should use caution when choosing a glucosamine supplement, otherwise for the general population the shellfish source is an excellent type to use. Glucosamine may need to be taken for three months before results are seen, but some may see results in the first couple of weeks
Reducing Joint Pain Naturally
Most people over age 35 have at least some wear and tear in their joints, but that doesn't mean it should cramp your style.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It usually has a gradual onset and begins after the age of forty. The knees, hips, fingers and vertebrae are most susceptible. The joint deterioration is due to faulty or deficient repair of bone and cartilage in the joint. The standard North American diet is deficient in the minerals necessary for proper joint repair; therefore it is not surprising that osteoarthritis is a common concern. Osteoarthritis causes stiffness and joint pain on motion.
It is typically worse in the morning. Initially there is no inflammation or swelling of the joint. As the damage progresses the joint may become inflamed and deformed. Muscles around the joint can tense up, joint mobility may decrease and there may be a grating feeling on movement. The pain becomes constant and occurs even when at rest.
Drug Treatments Actually Worsen Arthritis
Conventional treatment with anti-inflammatories has been shown to worsen arthritis. Side effects of some drugs are gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach ulcers, heart attacks and liver problems. Some of these medications, especially the NSAID group can actually accelerate the degradation of joint tissue and can cause a loss of bone mass.
