Researchers Believe Glucosamine Is a Potential Remedy Against Infection-Related Inflammation


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2015 -- Inflammation is believed to be the root cause of many of today's most prevalent ailments, including the fatal and preventable conditions. While the use of pharmaceutical drugs in fighting ailments is still popular, scientists are investigating the natural remedies against medical conditions.

Researchers believe glucosamine is a potential remedy against infection-related inflammation. Glucosamine is a natural alternative widely used by individuals who suffer from pain due to arthritis. However, it is also used for a wide variety of medicinal purposes.

"Glucosamine supplements can be purchased at local health stores and even through the internet," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Research reveals that glucosamine can have positive effects on the body that experiences infection. Bacterial infection often leads to an increase in lipopolysaccharide (LPS), which triggers inflammatory response or the excess production of an inflammatory marker called IL-6.

According to researchers, LPS could damage tissue in the lungs and is detrimental to circulation. They also added that glucosamine has the potential ability to repair the damage. It was also found that the natural alternative has the potential to turn down the gene-related response system (MAP kinase), which is associated with inflammation reduction in response to bacterial LPS.

The study only demonstrates the compelling need of the body to have increased levels of glucosamine to achieve healing from an acute stress. Researchers also added that the natural ingredient could aid in regulating stress response and reduce inflammation. This often results in a reduced damage in the tissue.

Glucosamine is also found to be beneficial among individuals who suffer from ongoing low-grade infection. It has the potential ability to manage acute and chronic inflammation, and speed up healing process of liver and lymph-related inflammation.

"Glucosamine is a naturally-occurring substance inside the body. However, as a person ages, the glucosamine levels in the body also tend to reduce. Taking glucosamine supplements is believed to be helpful in replenishing this loss," added O'Sullivan.

Glucosamine has been widely studied, and today, is available in a form of supplement. Many individuals who suffer from pain and discomfort due to arthritis resort to using glucosamine supplements. According to many of the sufferers who have used the natural alternative, they have experienced significant improvements not just in pain but also in their mobility after using glucosamine.

There are many glucosamine supplements available in the market today, and experts recommend the use of products that do not only contain glucosamine but also other ingredients. Examples of these natural ingredients are chondroitin, MSM, and turmeric (
