Glucosamine and NSAIDs Found to Be Effective Combination for Arthritis Treatment


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2014 -- Arthritis sufferers in many parts of the world are continually looking for the best treatment option for their condition. Some use NSAIDs as these drugs are recommended by physicians, while others use herbal supplements such as glucosamine. However, there are also those who use the combination of both treatment options.

Studies have shown that glucosamine and NSAIDs are a great combination for arthritis treatment. It was found that those who use a combination of drugs and glucosamine have experienced high levels of pain relief.

One study from the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, which was published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, found that the pain relief subjects experienced while taking glucosamine and NSAIDs was more pronounced than each on their own.

“What makes glucosamine supplements even more interesting is that they have been a subject of several studies from renowned scientists worldwide. Many of these studies found that the natural alternative can be helpful for pain relief and possibly even joint health regeneration,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Some scientific evidence showed glucosamine sulfate can slow down the gradual deterioration of the joint. It has also been shown to help ease the pain of those who suffer from mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.

Other studies seem to indicate that glucosamine can potentially slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is a naturally found substance in the body, but it diminishes as a person ages. However, it is believed that glucosamine levels can increase when a person takes glucosamine supplements.

Many arthritis sufferers who have been using NSAIDs are also using glucosamine supplements. This is one of the reasons why the demand for glucosamine supplements has been increasing. Such supplement also typically contain other essential nutrients for the joints, including MSM and chondroitin
