Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2014 -- As the number of people who are suffering from arthritic conditions increases, the use of pain medication has also increased. However, aside from pharmaceutical drugs, natural alternatives such as glucosamine supplements are now becoming more popular.
According to research, glucosamine supplements are continually gaining more positive reviews from consumers. Glucosamine has become widely used by arthritis patients following several studies indicating its therapeutic effects. While a majority of studies focus on the effects of glucosamine on joint conditions, it is also used by many people around the world for other medicinal purposes.
"Testimonies about how glucosamine has changed the lives of sufferers are continually increasing. They regularly express how glucosamine has been able to help them regain their ability to walk and do their daily activities without feeling extreme pain," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Glucosamine supplements are very popular among athletes and the elderly population. These groups are typically more susceptible to wear and tear in the joint. Although the elderly and athletes are the most common users of glucosamine, some health experts also recommend that individuals who are 18 and above should start using the natural alternative as a protective measure.
While studies are not conclusive, some believe that taking glucosamine before the joints become worn out may give the body what it needs to maintain healthy joints for longer. Despite minimal scientific evidence, many athletic coaches are encouraging young athletes to use glucosamine to strengthen and protect their joints.
The reviews from glucosamine users also include testimonies that describe how the natural alternative has enable them to exercise, work, and become mobile once again without experiencing pain. Others stated that glucosamine has helped them eliminate the severe pain that they had been suffering from for months.
Users also believed that glucosamine was safer to use than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). According to some, the use of NSAIDs resulted in potentially life-threatening side effects. However, when they started using glucosamine they did not experience any side effects at all.
While glucosamine supplements have gained many positive reviews from users, it is also important to remember that not all glucosamine products are suitable for everyone.
Experts recommend that consumers ensure that the ingredients used in the supplements are of the highest quality and are manufactured according to the standards set by the FDA. They also suggest that users should choose products that do not only contain glucosamine, but also other natural ingredients such as chondroitin, MSM, and turmeric http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=glucosamine
