Research Shows Glucosamine Supplements Combine Nutrients Necessary for Joint Health


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2015 -- People who use a glucosamine supplement for the pain and inflammation of arthritis are staunch supporters of its benefits. The dietary supplements provide consumers with the natural building blocks of cartilage that are essential for joints to function properly and without discomfort.

"Clinicians and rheumatologists who know the value of glucosamine recommend a supplement of 1,500mg per day and one that utilizes the sulfate form of glucosamine for maximum efficacy," said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

VitaBreeze's elite glucosamine formula is one of the few that incorporates turmeric, a botanical used as a spice and medicinal agent in Asia and East Indian countries. Studies show that it's a potent anti-inflammatory that enhances the effects of glucosamine and has been awarded the Food and Drug Administration's GRAS (generally regarded as safe) designation.

Glucosamine has been determined safe for extended use, is tolerated well, and has none of the detrimental and even deadly side effects of the NSAID medications typically prescribed for arthritis. Glucosamine supplements generally include chondroitin and MSM, all three of which are bio-chemicals the body manufactures for joint health.

A fully-featured supplement includes four ingredients if it's to provide optimal benefits. The first is glucosamine, a natural chemical the body makes to create and repair cartilage, the soft tissue that enables joints to function without pain. It's a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that damage cells.

Chondroitin is also manufactured within the body, working in concert with glucosamine for cartilage production. To create chondroitin, the body must have enough of the right nutrients. Those can be derived from animals and shellfish, but are available in very small quantities and many people are allergic to the sources of those nutrients.

MSM is an organic sulfur manufactured by the body and has multiple functions. It's an essential component of cartilage construction and maintenance that may help eliminate toxins from the body, and is also believed to be a natural anti-inflammatory. MSM is needed for the production of an extensive array of bio-proteins and is a critical element needed for the body to create its own antioxidants to fight aging.

Glucosamine supplements offer consumers a readily available source of essential nutrients for cartilage that can be used immediately. The addition of turmeric boosts the potency of glucosamine for a powerful formula to fight the inflammation, swelling and pain of arthritis
