Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2015 -- Glucosamine is a very popular natural supplement among arthritis patients. Many sufferers believe it to be very effective in helping them achieve joint pain relief and improved mobility. Now, the popularity of glucosamine has extended beyond arthritis sufferers to include athletes such as gymnasts.
Statistics show that an increasing number of gymnasts are gaining positive health benefits from using glucosamine. The regular activities engaged in by gymnasts involves pounding on the joints, and this can trigger significant aches and pains. Many rely on glucosamine not only to achieve pain relief, but also to improve overall joint health.
"Gymnasts and individuals who regularly engage in physical activities generally experience more wear and tear on the joints. This makes them more susceptible to having arthritis, especially if they don't practice preventive measures," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to studies, active athletes such as gymnasts are highly susceptible to secondary osteoarthritis, particularly if they have experienced a slight injury in the past. Moreover, they are more prone to damaging their joints, and this can place them at risk for a lifetime of debilitating pain.
Glucosamine is a substance naturally produced in the body that is used to maintain joint health. However, as people age their body produces less of the substance, reducing the body's ability to repair damaged joints. Many health experts believe that glucosamine supplements could be an effective way to replenish glucosamine levels and help the body maintain healthy joints.
Some researchers have claimed that certain substances in glucosamine have the ability to repair cartilage, stop inflammation and stimulate cartilage growth. Other studies have suggested that glucosamine could help slow down the progression of osteoarthritis, a condition that results in pain and cartilage deterioration.
Glucosamine is a widely popular natural supplement among both athletes and arthritis sufferers. Experts suggest that consumers select glucosamine supplements that also contain other natural ingredients such as chondroitin, MSM and turmeric (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
