Glucosamine is one of the most popular non-vitamin, non-mineral, supplements in the United States today.
Glucosamine is normally produced by the body and is used to keep the cartilage in joints healthy but can also absorb processed fats and waste. With aging and arthritis the production of glucosamine slows or in some cases can even stop. When this happens joints, especially the knees and back, become painful to move and can make you not even want to get out of bed in the morning.
How does it work?
Glucosamine also has a close releation with weight and fat. Studies show that glucosamine has the ability to regulate sugar levels, fat consumption and metabolism. Glucosamine helps reduce inflammation in the body, and in this manner glucosamine and weight loss are linked.
Reduced inflammation stimulates the body's ability to lose weight more efficiently. Inflammation is tied to a host of health concerns, including chronic diseases, lethargy, and fatigue. Fatigue alone may prevent people from being able to exercise and lose weight. Inflammation also prevents the body's natural metabolism from working properly, which may contribute to increased weight and the odds the body will pack on more pounds. Glucosamine also has the ability to absorb fat that is released through diet and exercise.
Glucosamine helps relieve the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis of the knee.
Glucosamine in the body is used to make a â€œcushionâ€ that surrounds the joints. In osteoarthritis, this cushion becomes thinner and stiff. Taking glucosamine hydrochloride as a supplement helps to supply the materials needed to rebuild this cushion. Rebuilding the cushion surrounding the joints alleviates inflamation and releives pain making excercise easier and lowering blood pressure.
