Glucosamine in Disc-Gard+
Glucosamine is needed to form glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronic acid molecules which are the main constituents of joint cartilage. It is the joint cartilage that is damaged from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine sulfate may help protect joint cartilage by limiting the breakdown and helping to build up levels of cartilage. Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to support cartilage and collagen. Glucosamine also enters the joint space and is incorporated into proteoglycans, which are cells that form large structures and attract water to the joint space for lubrication of cartilage during movement.
When Glucosamine is taken as a dietary supplement, it may help to relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder that affects 12% of the population. In addition, rheumatoid arthritis sufferers also report improvements with glucosamine supplements. There is no natural food source of glucosamine, however, the shells of crabs, shrimp and oysters do contain it, and this is the source of most of the dietary supplements.
In fact, some studies point out that it is as effective as aspirin and other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) at relieving arthritis pains and of course with much less risk of causing stomach bleeding or ulcer formation. Thousands of people die a year from taking these NSAID medications.
Glucosamine is much safer to take than medications such as aspirin or NSAIDs. The glucosamine and other nutrients found in our Disc Gard are pure and natural.
MSM as found in Disc-Gard+Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is a prevalent dietary supplement which has been widely promoted for a variety of conditions including pain, inflammation and arthritis. MSM is a sulfur containing compound, and, since most people are sulfur deficient unless they eat their fish and meat raw and their vegetables uncooked, it is a good source of sulfur. It is not clear what role MSM plays in the complex chemistry of the human body, but like other sulfur compounds, MSM is a necessary building block for proteins, especially those found in the hair, muscles, and connective tissue of the joints and skin. That's why we've included it in our Disc Gard+.
has been shown to help strengthen joints, improve blood flow and
mobility. Many people with arthritis have found that taking MSM
combined with herbal remedies and their medication is more effective
than taking their medicine alone. Many studies have revealed that MSM combined with Glucosamine and Chondroitin works great for those suffering with joint pain.
As always, if your disc problem is not getting better, seek the care of your family physician or chiropractor.
