Found in relatively high concentrations in the joints and connective tissues the body uses glucosamine for cartilage repair and maintenance. Although glucosamine has had mixed reviews in the press in recent years, as many as 70 countries around the world use it to treat arthritis. It has been found to ease pain and inflammation, increase range of movement and help repair ageing and damaged joints in knees, hips, spine and hands.

A study at a Beijing Medical Hospital found it was just as effective as ibuprofen in reducing symptoms of osteoarthritis in the knee and it was better tolerated by the patients.

Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is a key building block for glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs attract water to produce gel like substances such as synovial fluid in the joints. Glucosamine’s main function is to stimulate production and be part of the structure of GAGs.

The benefit of the glucosamine is that it does not just mask pain like anti-inflammatory drugs but helps to combat disease progression by offering the possibility of repair.

As people age they lose the ability to produce significant levels of glucosamine so supplements may be a useful preventative.
