Glucosamine/Chondroitin Sulphate Plus


In recent years, two naturally occurring supplements - glucosamine and chondroitin - have become increasingly popular as the treatment of choice for many people. Both of these substances are found naturally in the human body: glucosamine is an amino sugar that stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage; chondroitin is a carbohydrate that promotes elasticity and prevents other enzymes from degrading joint cartilage.

There are many published studies which reported a similar level of pain relief obtained from glucosamine and chondroitin to that attainable from medication such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Some research also indicates that the supplements might be able to slow down the rate of further cartilage damage. No study has so far found any serious side effects from either of these natural products.

Some of the research findings have been criticized as possibly having bias or for not being conducted over a long enough period. However, a major long-term study is currently being conducted by the National Institutes of Health, the results of which are expected in 2005. In the meantime, conservative bodies such as the Arthritis Foundation have cautiously advised sufferers of osteoarthritis to try the supplements for themselves as there is very little risk and they may well provide the pain relief they desire.

good news for bad joints
by barb

My husband and I are both taking this supplement and feel it has improved our joint problems a great deal. We had tried similar supplements in the past and had some stomach problems with them, but this one has no undesireable side effects for us, and works great.
