Glucosamine Facts

Glucosamine Facts

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.

By adding glucosamine to your life, you are helping your body help itself. In effect, you are lubricating your joints with glucosamine and continually bathing your joints in a healthy, protective fluid that goes to work building glucosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, which repair and rebuild your worn joints while suppressing destructive chondrocytes production and leading, ultimately, to a newer, healthier you.

Now that we know glucosamine is beneficial for joints, the question now has to be raised. What methods of administration are going to be effective and which ones are going to leave you with little or no relief?

Our bodies are 2/3 water. The brain is composed of 70 percent water, blood is 82 percent water, and the lungs are nearly 90 percent water. When you take a chicken bullion cube and place it into a cup of water, what does it do? It sits there – slowly dissolving. Now imagine pouring the same amount of chicken broth into water. What happens? It’s gone – dissolved instantly. The same is true for liquid glucosamine – instantly dissolves and is fully absorbed. Solid pills often contain multiple layers, and many binding and chelating agents to make the pill’s ingredients ”stick together” as a solid. This is a serious problem, because the body in many cases cannot break all of those substances down, and many times pills can pass right through the body, the brand name still visible.

When you take glucosamine in pill form, you are only getting a fraction of what your body needs, even if you are taking a full clinically tested 1,500 mg a day. This is because of absorption issues. To add insult to injury, some manufacturers try to sell you the KCl or NaCl forms (the salts) which contain up to 30% salt bound to the actual glucosamine. So while a dose might be 500 mg of “glucosamine (as potassium salt)”, you really are only getting 350 mg of ACTIVE glucosamine and of that perhaps 10 or 20% is going to be absorbed in pill form anyway. No wonder pills take longer to work and never seem to do quite as good of a job.
