Why glucosamine-based supplements for your joint health?Studies have shown that glucosamine can help to maintain joint health. However, more recent studies have shown that there are better results when glucosamine is combined with chondroitin and MSM.
Why glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM?
The triple strength formula of glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM helps to promote joint function and mobility. Glucosamine is a key building block of joints that helps to maintain healthy joint cartilage. Chondroitin attracts fluid into joint cartilage for shock absorption. MSM is critical for maintaining elasticity of connective tissues.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin
The National Institute of Health, Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT) published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2006, tested the effects of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Participants with moderate-to-severe joint pain showed significant pain relief when taking the combination of glucosamine HCL (1500mg) and chondroitin (1200mg).*
Glucosamine and MSM
Studies, such as the Double-Blind Study of Oral Glucosamine, Methylsulfonylmethane and their combination in osteoarthritis published in Clinical Drug Investigation in 2004, have also shown that glucosamine, together with MSM, may help aid joint pain relief.**
