Research Suggests Glucosamine Works Best when Combined with Chondroitin, MSM and Turmeric


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2015 -- Cooks have known for centuries that one spice has the ability to enhance the flavor of another and the same is true of chemical compounds manufactured within the body. A glucosamine supplement provides maximum benefit when the formula includes chondroitin, MSM and turmeric.

"Turmeric is a botanical agent that is thought to provide further anti-inflammatory abilities to glucosamine supplements," said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "MSM and chondroitin are both natural chemicals the body produces, just as it does glucosamine. Together, they form a powerful and potent formula that aids in joint health."

Glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM are chemical compounds necessary for the creation and maintenance of cartilage, a soft tissue that surrounds joints and allows them to work properly. If the body isn't able to produce enough of any of the three compounds, cartilage deteriorates causing inflammation and pain.

Glucosamine supplements assist people in maintaining joint health by providing the essential elements needed to form and maintain cartilage. Each bio-chemical substance is available in a form that the body can use immediately without first having to manufacture it.

Some experts claim that a glucosamine supplement should contain all four ingredients for maximum benefit. Glucose sulfate is the most effective form of the bio-chemical. Studies demonstrate that it can be used as a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Chondroitin is an essential element that works with glucosamine to form and maintain cartilage. It's manufactured within the body from nutrients derived from animal and seafood sources, but it's only available in small quantities and allergies are a consideration for many.

MSM is an organic sulfur made by the body and found in a variety of foods. It's used for cartilage construction, is an anti-inflammatory and helps rid the body of toxins. MSM aids the body in manufacturing its own antioxidants and is needed for production of many bio-proteins.
Turmeric is a botanical used as a common spice, but contains an active ingredient known as curcumin. It is believed that curcumin is an aggressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and may serve to enhance the properties of glucosamine.

Glucosamine supplements are safe for long-term use and several studies suggest that they are just as effective as many prescription medications. A 1,500mg daily dosage of glucosamine sulfate combined with chondroitin, MSM and turmeric offers consumers a powerful alternative to dangerous NSAIDs
