Glucosamine Found to Provide Positive Long-Term Results for Joint Pain


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2015 -- People from all over the world are suffering from mild to excruciating joint pain. In the U.S. alone, more than 27 million people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis (OA). NSAIDs have been very useful in providing quick and temporary relief of pain. However, these synthetic medications are not recommended for long-term use because of its dangerous effects on various organs in the body.

With a need for a better long-term solution, scientists are investigating more natural alternatives. Studies showed that the popularity of glucosamine supplements has been increasing worldwide. As a matter of fact, some research suggests that this natural alternative could provide more positive long-term effects than drugs.

"Glucosamine is a natural component created by our bodies to help build and maintain healthy joints. Joint damage is normally due to wear and tear as well as the decreasing levels of glucosamine in the body," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "While NSAIDs are popular for their quick pain relieving effects, many believe glucosamine that could be beneficial for long-term use."

A study published in the Current Medical Research and Opinion journal was conducted to test the efficacy of glucosamine when compared to drugs. The study involved two groups that took ibuprofen and glucosamine sulfate individually. It was found that after two weeks, the group who took ibuprofen had achieved higher levels of pain relief. However, after eight weeks, it was only the glucosamine group who still continued to experience high levels of pain relief.

Arthritis sufferers in many areas around the globe have testified that they have experienced the benefits in using glucosamine supplements. Some patients claim that they did not only experienced pain relief, but also improvements in their mobility.

As well as providing long-term benefits, glucosamine supplements are also believed to be a safer alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Many consumers have reported side effects when using pain relief drugs, but added that they did not experience any side effect when taking glucosamine.

Glucosamine is reported to have high levels of therapeutic properties. These therapeutic substances are believed to be very helpful in increasing the glucosamine levels in the body and repairing damaged joints. Some experts believe that glucosamine has been able to provide long-term benefits primarily because it addresses the root cause of the joint pain problem
