What Is It?
Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are two components of joint cartilage and other types of structural tissue. Glucosamine and chondroitin are made up of sugars and amino acids. The sulfate portion of these compounds is also important since the body requires sulfate to produce cartilage.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: The main purpose of glucosamine and chondroitin is to provide structural support for joint cartilage. Chondroitin provides resistance against compression forces, while glucosamine provides support for both the cartilage and the synovial fluid surrounding the joints that helps cushion and reduce friction. Glucosamine and chondroitin are most often taken by those with osteoarthritis to reduce joint breakdown and joint pain. Subjects supplementing with glucosamine and chondroitin have been able to reduce their use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and although these natural supplements take longer to provide relief than NSAIDs, their beneficial effects have been shown to last longer.
Who Should Take It?
Those with osteoarthritis and painful degenerative joint conditions will benefit the most from Glucosamine & Chondroitin.
Take 1 capsule two to three times a day, or as directed by a qualified health consultant. It will normally take a minimum of two months to see beneficial effects. For prolonged use, consult a health care provider.
Cautions: Consult a health care provider if symptoms persist after ongoing supplementation, if you experience gastrointestinal pain or bowel movement disturbances, or if allergic reaction occurs. Potassium-restricted or kidney disease patients should use hydrochloride form. Exercise caution if allergic to seafood (shrimp/ crab). Theoretical risk of elevated insulin resistance in diabetics.
Pregnancy/Nursing: Do not use
