More Studies Conducted to Test Effects of Glucosamine on Bursitis


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- According to statistics, there are more than 8.7 million individuals n the United States who are suffering from bursitis, or approximately 1 out of 31 people. Bursitis is a painful condition that is caused by inflammation due to repetitive motion, and usually affects larger joints such as the elbow, knee and hip. Those who suffer from bursitis may find it painful to move and perform their daily activities.

Due to the increasing number of individuals who are suffering from bursitis, scientists and health experts are conducting studies to see the effects of glucosamine in bursitis. Many believe that glucosamine may have therapeutic properties that can significantly help regain joint health.

“There have been several studies that have tried to validate the efficacy of glucosamine to reduce inflammation in individuals who are suffering from bursitis,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

The University of Maryland and Medical Center recommended the use of glucosamine sulfate for bursitis sufferers for pain and inflammation reduction. Other natural alternatives recommended included flaxseed oil and fish oil, as they contain omega-3 fatty acids that can also help reduce inflammation.

“Having bursitis can be troublesome. Sufferers often experience pain and discomfort such as aching, stiffness in the joint, swelling, and redness. Anyone can suffer from bursitis, especially those who regularly engage in strenuous activities. Bursitis can also be caused by bacterial infection,” added O’Sullivan.

Glucosamine supplements are widely popular as a natural option for arthritis sufferers. Although studies are still being conducted to validate the positive effects of glucosamine in bursitis, there are quite a number of sufferers who are already using glucosamine as a natural remedy.

The body naturally produces glucosamine to maintain joint health. However, as people age, the body produces less of the essential nutrient. Glucosamine supplements are recommended by many as the most convenient way to supplement the body's natural levels. Supplements typically include other essential nutrients together with the glucosamine, such as chondroitin and MSM, for best results
