Adults Turning to Natural Supplements as a Long-Term Solution to NSAIDs


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Today's society are living longer, staying healthier and maintaining an active lifestyle far beyond that of their parents. The downside is that injuries and aging joints are causing pain for millions of individuals. Health conscious adults of today are turning to glucosamine supplements as a preferable solution to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for extended use.

“Glucosamine supplements have been shown to be safe, even with long-term use,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “They don’t have the detrimental effects of NSAIDs that have been documented by the Food and Drug Administration.”

Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue found throughout the body. It covers the ends of bones and provides support. When cartilage doesn’t receive the full amount of needed nutrients, it begins to break down, bones rub against each other and pain results.

One of the substances that the body manufactures to maintain cartilage is glucosamine. Healthy cartilage is essential if joints are to move freely and without pain. Glucosamine may also be a natural anti-inflammatory that relieves swelling and pain.

People with joint pain are typically presented with a prescription for NSAIDs to relieve pain and a potential for invasive joint replacement surgery in the future. NSAIDs have a documented bleeding risk for organs that include the eyes, brain, stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Faced with those risks, rheumatologists and physicians are increasingly recommending glucosamine supplements as an effective alternative to NSAIDs.

The work of glucosamine supplements is twofold. They provide the body with essential glucosamine for healthy joints and it’s also believed to be a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that contributes to the breakdown of tissues throughout the body. Glucosamine works at the cellular level to neutralize free radicals, providing the body with a respite in which to repair itself.

A glucosamine supplement offers an effective, long-term alternative to NSAIDs that have a history of documented dangers that can occur even after short-term usage. Glucosamine is a substance created naturally within the body as part of its own defense against injury, aging and disease. A glucosamine dietary supplement can assist the body’s own healing mechanisms to relieve inflammation and pain for better joint health
