Glucosamine Supplements Second Only to Omega-3 Fish Oil in Popularity


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2014 -- The popularity of glucosamine dietary supplements can’t be denied and they’re endorsed by the majority of people that use them for joint pain. They’re surpassed only by Omega-3 supplements in popularity, but the benefits of glucosamine are thoroughly supported in the Glucosamine/chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT) sponsored by the National Institute of Health.

“Glucosamine has been recognized as the second most popular dietary supplement on the market,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Omega-3 fish oil supplements are primarily utilized for their fat burning, brain support, muscle building and pain relief properties. Glucosamine dietary supplements go a step further in the fight against joint pain, with formulations that also provide the nutrients the body requires for continued joint health.

Primary physicians and rheumatologists are increasingly suggesting glucosamine dietary supplements for patients with joint pain. It’s part of a shift toward a holistic approach that addresses the underlying cause of the pain rather than treating or masking symptoms.

Glucosamine dietary supplements are the heavy hitters in the joint pain arena, earning respect and a devoted following from virtually everyone who tries them. Supplements that employ glucosamine sulfate are the most effective. Glucosamine is made naturally within the body, which uses it to build strong cartilage that keeps joints functioning smoothly.

The benefits of a glucosamine rich supplement are twofold. It also alleviates inflammation that causes swelling and pain. Joint pain can be caused by an injury, disease and naturally diminishing joint health as the body ages. No matter what the cause, the end result is pain, less flexibility and reduced mobility.

For optimum effect, glucosamine should be paired with chondroitin and MSM, all of which are chemical compounds manufactured within the body. The supplements have the advantage of providing consumers with all natural ingredients without the introduction of foreign substances. They offer a natural alternative to costly and potentially dangerous prescription medications.

Second only to Omega-3 supplements in popularity, glucosamine formulas offer joint pain sufferers with a non-steroidal and non-prescription alternative to ease inflammation and pain. Glucosamine supplements are specially formulated to provide the body with the ingredients used to keep cartilage healthy for easier movement.
