Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2016 -- Glucosamine is one of the most recommended natural alternatives to pain relief drugs for individuals and even animals who suffer from arthritis. However, it seems that there is more to the natural supplement than just being a pain relief remedy.
Glucosamine is thought to be one of the best supplements for post-meniscus surgery. The meniscus is the vital part of the cushioning system of the knee. It has a crescent moon shape and is popularly known to be a shock absorber.
The cartilage inside the body, especially those in the weight-bearing joints, is usually susceptible to wear and tear. Over the years of movements, the cartilage can become worn. It is also destroyed during an injury.
"Glucosamine is thought to help repair damaged cartilage and regain its health," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to experts, supplements such as glucosamine can significantly help after the surgery. It can aid in the natural healing response of the body in several ways. For instance, it can rebuild the damaged cartilage, remove dead tissues, and improve bone health.
There are other vitamins believed to be helpful for post-surgery patients. One is vitamin D, which encourages the body to utilize calcium in strengthening and growing the bones. Vitamin C, on the other hand, aids in healing, especially during recovery period.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends that individuals who have undergone the surgery should take 1,000 international units of vitamin D on a daily basis. The dosage for vitamin C may vary according to sex and age.
Glucosamine has always been a popular remedy for arthritis pain and even during the recovery period after a surgery. However, there is also another therapeutic ingredient called chondroitin, which is also a vital component in the human cartilage.
According to the 2005 study featured by Bastyr Natural Health Center, both glucosamine and chondroitin are as effective as prescription medications in reducing swelling and knee pain. They have been shown to have the ability to reduce inflammation and pain as well as regenerate the cartilage.
One of the best things about using glucosamine and chondroitin is that both are natural ingredients, and their use is not associated with side effects. Pain relief medications are only designed to provide temporary pain relief, and they do not have the natural ability to repair cartilage damage.
Fortunately, there are glucosamine supplements in the market that do not just contain chondroitin, but also other natural ingredients. These therapeutic ingredients are MSM and turmeric, which are also thought to fight pain and inflammation (http://amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
