Welcome to EarthTurns
Dee Cee GHC 3X is a triple strength glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement.
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.
Studies have shown that chondroitin sulfate is a compound that appears to block the enzymes that can destroy essential cartilage tissue. Chondroitin has become a popular dietary supplement for the treatment of osteoarthritis because combined with glucosamine it has been shown to be very effective. In fact, some studies point out that it is as effective as aspirin and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal 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.
In the mid-1990s, scientists discovered that chondroitin is actually well absorbed and because of promising follow-up research in people suffering from osteoarthritis both the American College of Rheumatology and the European League Against Rheumatism were prompted to recommend chondroitin in their published guidelines for osteoarthritis treatment. Both chondroitin and glucosamine are much safer to take than medications such as aspirin or NSAIDs. The glucosamine and chondroitin found in our products are pure and natural.
