Benefits of Glucosamine
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 sulfatemay help protect joint cartilage by limiting the breakdown and helping to build up levels of cartilage.
- Glucosaminehas 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.
Benefit of MSM
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. Sulfur also is found in insulin and bile acid.
