Cartilage is built and repaired with glucosamine. Supplements containing glucosamine are often taken to boost joint health. Natural sugars, such as glucosamine, exist in the fluid that surrounds joints, in animal bones, shellfish, bone marrow, and fungi.
Introduction of product:
Glucosamine is usually taken in combination with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine HCl. Glucosamine potassium sulfate and glucosamine sodium sulfate are also available. Glucosamine has been identified as an effective ingredient in stimulating synovial fluid synthesis, inhibiting cartilage degradation, and improving healing.
How does it work:
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance in the body. You use it to make glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins, which are essential building blocks for many joints, such as ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and synovial fluid.
Applications Or where it is used:
Glucosamine sulfate comes as an oral drug that helps treat osteoarthritis, a painful condition caused by inflammation, breakdown, and eventual loss of cartilage.
You can prepare glucosamine by hydrolyzing chitosan with -amylase followed by glucoamylase. The optimal conditions with -amylase include:
How to use:
Glucosamine builds and repairs cartilage in the body. Flexible, tough, rubbery cartilage protects the bones in joints. It protects the bones from rubbing against one another. When cartilage ages, it becomes less flexible and begins to deteriorate. A result of this is pain, inflammation, and tissue damage, as in osteoarthritis, for example. There are some indications that glucosamine might benefit cartilage health and halt this process. The body naturally produces glucosamine, though levels decline as we age. Eventually, this reduction could lead to joint degeneration
Dosage of usage:
BY MOUTH: For osteoarthritis: A dose of 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate once daily, or 500 mg three times daily, alone, or in combination with 400 mg of chondroitin sulfate two or three times daily, can be used for a period of up to three years.
Mild side effects:
Uncommon side effects:
Warnings and precautions while using this product
