Our body’s natural Glucosamine is used to make and repair joint cartilage. In osteoarthritis, cartilage — the rubbery aterial that cushions joints — becomes stiff and loses its elasticity. This makes the joint prone to damage and may lead to pain, swelling, loss of movement, and further deterioration. There is promising evidence that glucosamine may reduce pain symptoms of knee osteoarthritis and possibly slow the progression of osteoarthritis. A study published in the Journal Archives of Internal Medicine examined people with osteoarthritis over three years. They found at the end of the study that glucosamine slowed the progression of knee osteoarthritis.
Taking glucosamine as a nutritional supplement is thought to help repair damaged cartilage by augmenting the body’s supply of glucosamine.
