Relieves pain, stiffness and inflammation in joints in the knees, hips, spine and hand due to arthritis or overuse: Glucosamine is an amino sugar produced in small amounts by the body to preserve joint health. Recently, it has become available as a nutritional supplement. It is the preferred form for arthritis because it is best suited for cartilage repair. This supplement can ease pain, inflammation and increase range of motion for many arthritis sufferers, especially for those with osteoarthritis. The formula also contains MSM, short for methyl-sulfonyl-methane, an organic sulfur found in the human body and in a number of foods. Sulfur, part of every cell in the body, is concentrated in the connective tissue, joint cartilage, skin, nails and hair. From ancient times to today, sulfur has been associated with healing and sulfurous waters have attracted those suffering from arthritis and digestive disorders. As a supplement, MSM helps inhibit pain impulses, lessens inflammation and increases blood supply. Thus it proves effective in treating many conditions such as arthritis, back pain, headaches, muscle pain, tendinitis, bursitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Helps make cartilage, repair damaged joints and speed healing of sprains (valuable to athletes): In contrast to taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin and ibuprofen that may impair the body’s ability to make cartilage, glucosamine sulfate helps the body make cartilage and repair damaged joints and is therefore valuable to athletes. This form is readily used by the body, 90-98% being absorbed through the intestine.
