Glucosamine is a natural compound that is found
in healthy cartilage.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar produced from the shells of chitin(shellfish)
and is a key component of the extra cellular matrix of cartilage.
Glucosamine works to stimulate joint function and repair. Glucosamine
has been clinically proven to slow the progression of osteoarthritis
in humans with arthritis and hip dysplasia in pets. It has been
proven effective in easing osteoarthritis pain, aid in rehabilitating
cartilage, renewing synovial fluid, and repairing joints that
have been damaged from osteoarthritis.
A large 2006 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine
concluded that glucosamine and chondroitin did not reduce pain
effectively over all, but that the supplements did benefit a subgroup
of patients with moderate to severe pain. Two earlier three-year
studies in Europe found that people with knee osteoarthritis taking
glucosamine had significantly less pain and narrowing of their
joint space than those taking a placebo. Chondroitin sulfate seemed
to decrease pain in a three-month trial.
