GLUCOSAMINE IS A SIMPLE MOLECULE THAT CAN BE MANUFACTURED IN THE BODY
Glucosamine is formed when glucose combines with an amino acid. It is a building block for cartilage. Glucosamine sulfate is a form of glucosamine that has some extremely beneficial uses, especially for healing connective tissue. The body absorbs glucosamine sulfate quickly and efficiently when ingested.
Glucosamine sulfate is a small and simple molecular building block used to aid body builders and athletes with joint pain by helping to repair and lubricate the cartilage around damaged joints.
Glucosamine sulfate has been the subject of over 300 scientific investigations and many double-blind studies. The main function of glucosamine in joints is to stimulate the manufacture of molecules known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are the key structural components of cartilage. It appears that as some people age, they lose the ability to manufacture sufficient levels of glucosamine. The result is that cartilage loses its ability to act as a shock absorber. The inability to manufacture glucosamine has been suggested to be the major factor leading to osteoarthritis. The more than 20 published clinical trials with glucosamine sulfate have demonstrated an overall success rate of 72-to-95% in various forms of osteoarthritis. In osteoarthritis of the knee, the success rate is over 80%. In addition to being shown to be more effective than a placebo, in head-to-head, double-blind studies comparing glucosamine sulfate to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), glucosamine sulfate was shown to produce better results than NSAIDs in relieving the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis, despite the fact that glucosamine sulfate exhibits very little direct anti-inflammatory effect and no direct analgesic or pain-relieving effects. Glucosamine sulfate appears to address the cause of osteoarthritis. By treating the root of the problem through the promotion of cartilage synthesis, glucosamine sulfate not only improves the symptoms, including pain, but also helps the body to repair damaged joints.
Not only can those who suffer from joint pain benefit from glucosamine sulfate intake, but athletes and bodybuilders can greatly benefit as well. Nearly everybody who trains with weights may have a tendency to overuse certain joints, and consequently, glucosamine can help to regain cushioning, protecting cartilage around joints.
