More Studies Conducted to Test Effects of Glucosamine for Wound Healing


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- One of the most popular natural supplements nowadays is glucosamine. This powerful ingredient has been a solution for many individuals who have been suffering from a variety of ailments, including arthritis. Now, some experts suggest that glucosamine has even more health benefits to offer.

According to the "100 Super Supplements for a Longer Life" book written by renowned nutritionist Frank Murray, glucosamine has the potential ability to support wound healing. This finding has encouraged many individuals to use the natural ingredient, especially those recovering from recent surgeries.

"Glucosamine is believed to be a powerful pain relieving substance. Among arthritis sufferers, it is thought to be effective in helping them regain their mobility and achieve a significant reduction of pain," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Experts believe that glucosamine has a way of enhancing the production of hyaluronic acid during the early phases of wound healing. Some say it promotes faster wound healing, which is good news for those who are easily wounded.

In an animal-based clinical trial, it showed that the natural ingredient had the ability to enhance tissue regeneration during the process of wound healing in rats. According to the Pain Clinic, glucosamine has the ability to dramatically increase the production of wound healing proteins such as hyaluronic acid in the body. This means that it can help in speeding up the natural repair process.

In another study, glucosamine was consumed orally by subjects days after a surgery. It was found that glucosamine helped increase the hyaluronic acid levels in their bodies and promoted faster healing. It was also believed to be responsible in reducing the complications related to scarring.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body and one of its functions is to stimulate collagen production. It is also believed to be responsible in improving natural cell repair. Since glucosamine can significantly increase the production of hyaluronic acid in the body, experts say there is a great chance that it can have positive effects in wound healing too
