Research Reveals Glucosamine Sulfate as the Most Effective for Joint Pain


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/25/2014 -- Glucosamine dietary supplements are designed to provide the body with nutrients that aid in maintaining cartilage that allows joints to move freely. Some supplements work better than others, and clinical studies around the world have revealed that formulas that use glucosamine sulfate work best.

“Many supplements are made with glucosamine hydrochloride,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “Our glucosamine supplement is created with the sulfate form for maximum benefit. It works extremely well and that’s reflected in its status as the number one selling supplement of its kind on Amazon.”

Glucosamine is a chemical compound that the body makes naturally. It’s used in the formation of cartilage and is in the fluid that surrounds joints, allowing them to function smoothly. The sulfate form of glucosamine is more readily available for use by the body when taken internally.

Information from the Mayo Clinic indicates that glucosamine sulfate is most effective and may help reduce the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Research published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health found that glucosamine sulfate was an effective method for treating osteoarthritis of the knee when administered in a 1500mg daily dosage.

The symptoms of arthritis don’t appear overnight and people taking a glucosamine supplement shouldn’t expect immediate results. Glucosamine supplements have a cumulative effect and it generally takes about two months for individuals to experience results, depending upon the severity of symptoms.

Glucosamine is typically combined with MSM and chondroitin, all of which are naturally occurring chemicals made in the human body. Research published in The Scientific World Journal highlighted studies that showed glucosamine sulfate was effective in lessening the pain of osteoarthritis in the knee and that it provided results comparable to NSAIDs.

Glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin supplements that incorporate turmeric have additional efficacy. Turmeric is a botanical used in traditional Asian and East Indian medicine, and a culinary spice in other parts of the world. Turmeric is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that reduce pain causing inflammation and swelling.

The VitaBreeze Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and Turmeric supplement provides consumers with the recommended 1500mg dosage in easy to swallow vegetable capsules. The formula utilizes glucosamine sulfate, the most effective form available to address pain and provide joints with the nutrients needed for functionality.
