Glucosamine is a natural product (made from the shells of shellfish or refined from corn) that has been shown to be extremely beneficial for arthritis and joint pain. Glucosamine stimulates cartilage cells to synthesize glucosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, which are responsible for maintaining your body’s joints. Proteoglycans are a mesh-like tissue that permits cartilage to flex and absorb physical shock. Glucosamine appears to also inhibit the production of Chondrocytes, enzymes that break down and destroy cartilage. For over 20 years, glucosamine has been clinically proven to slow the progression of osteoarthritis, ease the pain of osteoarthritis and joint pain, rejuvenate the synovial fluid and promote healthy and flexible joints.
Chondroitin (chondroitin Sulphate) and Glucosamine (Glucosamine Sulphate) are important components of the body's natural building blocks for the cartilage found in joints. MSM is essential for healthy connective tissues and joint function.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. OA is a degenerative joint disease that affects mostly women over the age 45. OA results from progressive loss of cartilage, a highly differentiated tissue that cushions and protects joints against the friction caused by the rubbing together of bones. OA most commonly affects hands, knees, and hips. The typical clinical symptoms are pain, inflammation, swelling, and stiffness. As the disorder progresses, movements such as walking, climbing stairs or using hands become painful, thus altering the patient's quality of life.
Chondroitin and Glucosamine are important components of the body's natural building blocks for the cartilage found in joints. Chondroitin sulphate is found in the proteoglycans of cartilage. Glucosamine on the other hand acts as the building block for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans needed for the formation of proteoglycans that are important constituents of the cartilage. Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine evaluated the benefit of chondroitin and glucosamine for OA symptoms using meta-analysis of clinical trials of these supplements in knee and/or hip OA. Fifteen of 37 studies were selected on the basis of being double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials of 4 or more weeks' duration. The study concluded that both chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine preparations are likely to be effective therapies for the symptomatic treatment of osteoarthritis (Glucosamine and chondroitin for treatment of osteoarthritis: a systematic quality assessment and meta-analysis. McAlindon et al. Journal of the American Medical Association 2000; volume 283: page 1469).
MSM Methyl sulfonyl methane, also known as dimethyl sulfone, is a naturally occurring sulphur compound found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood. It is also found in human body fluids, tissues. MSM is an important nutrient and essential for healthy connective tissues and
joint function. MSM originates in the ocean and reaches the human food chain through rainfall. It is the prime source of bio-available sulfur, which is lost from our food by processing, drying, cooking and preserving. MSM is an important nutrient (not a drug or medicine) and is a component of over 150 compounds. It is needed by the body for healthy connective tissues and joint function, proper enzyme activity and hormone balance, along with the proper function of the immune system.
MSM acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It also inhibits muscle spasm and increases blood flow. MSM is critical to the formation of connective tissue of all types. MSM is a natural form of organic sulphur found in all living organisms, including human body fluids and tissues. Sulphur is found in many common foods, including raw milk, meat, fish and a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, processing, heating, storage, and preparation of foods destroys essential MSM sulphur. Without sufficient MSM sulphur in the body, unnecessary illness of varying types may result. Research has shown that MSM is helpful in improving joint flexibility, reducing stiffness and swelling, improving circulation and cell vitality, reducing pain and scar tissue, and in breaking up calcium deposits. According to Earl L. Mindell, R.Ph., Ph.D., MSM makes cells more permeable, enabling the body to flush out undesirable foreign particles
