Recent Statiscal Findings Reveals More Gymnasts Use Glucosamine for Aches and Pains


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- Glucosamine is used by many as a natural pain relief treatment, and is especially popular among arthritis sufferers. It usually comes in the form of a dietary supplement and is widely available in the market. New research shows that it is not only arthritis patients who are benefiting from the natural remedy, but also athletes such as gymnasts.

According to statistics, an increasing number of gymnasts are using glucosamine to achieve relief from aches and pain. These athletes engage in sports that involve stress and pounding on the joints, and use glucosamine supplements to maintain joint health.

“Albeit stiffness and aches in the joints are a normal part of the aging process, there are still other factors that contribute to the occurrence of these symptoms such as weight, genetics, and sports-related activities,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Studies have shown that active athletes such as gymnasts can develop secondary osteoarthritis by from a sporting injury. They are more susceptible to losing their joint’s functional ability and this can result in a lifetime of debilitating pain.

As a preventive measure, gymnasts use glucosamine supplements to strengthen their joint cartilage. They believe that the natural treatment can also help them regain the health of their joints. Some researchers believe that glucosamine has substances that can significantly help repair cartilage, inhibit inflammation and stimulate cartilage growth.

“Glucosamine is believed to slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. This condition results in cartilage deterioration and pain. Athletes such as gymnasts use glucosamine because it has a proven track record in helping many people achieve pain relief,” added O’Sullivan.

There is a significant advantage in the proven ability of glucosamine to provide pain relief compared to other treatments. The studies and positive experiences of people who use glucosamine make the natural alternative extremely popular around the globe.

According to health experts, glucosamine supplements can be very helpful in providing pain relief. Many suggest that such supplements are a safer long-term alternative to pharmaceutical drugs, which can be dangerous with prolonged use. Glucosamine supplements are typically combined with other ingredients essential for joint health, including turmeric, chondroitin and MSM
