Glucosamine Combo Supplements Are Best for Arthritis Pain


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2014 -- Those with arthritis know that glucosamine supplements can offer relief from inflammation, swelling and pain. What many consumers don’t realize is that a combination supplement that incorporates glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and turmeric is the more effective.

“When used in combination, the ingredients enhance the efficacy of each other,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM are all biological chemical compounds found in the body. They’re used to create, repair and maintain cartilage, the connective tissue that allows joints to move. Turmeric is an all-natural botanical agent that’s used as a spice. Each element plays a specific role in joint health and must be present in sufficient quantities.

Glucosamine is a nutrient the body manufactures naturally and is a building block for cartilage. Supplements of glucosamine sulfate bypass the production phase in the body, delivering the finished product in a ready-to-use form. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Chondroitin is another building block of cartilage that the body produces. The elements needed to manufacture it are derived from animal sources. Dietary supplements provide the body with a source of the bio-chemical that can be easily accessed by the body for cartilage production.

MSM is found in a variety of foods, can be made artificially, and is the third largest organic nutrient in the body. It’s a sulfur compound and a critical element for the body’s own anti-inflammatory response. MSM assists the body in making its own antioxidants that are used to neutralize free radicals that damage the body at the cellular level. Sulfur also plays a role in the body’s ability to remove toxins from the body.

Turmeric is a botanical used by Asian and East Indian medical practitioners and is a popular spice. It contains curcumin, a potent antioxidant. The herb is a natural anti-inflammatory that enhances the properties of MSM and glucosamine.

People produce less glucosamine as they age, leading to deterioration of cartilage. Research has shown that a supplement that combines glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin provides the body with the nutrients required for joint health. The addition of turmeric provides a glucosamine supplement with an additional boost. When the four elements are combined in a supplement, they provide individuals with a potent formula for joint health (
