Osteoarthritis, or Degenerative Joint Disease, affects more than forty million Americans, including 80% of people over the age of fifty. Doctors and researchers believe that Osteoarthritis is the cumulative effects of decades of use and abuse that lead to these degenerative changes in our joints.
The damage is compounded by our decreased ability to repair these joint structures as we get older. Specifically, the body’s ability to restore and manufacture cartilage decreases as we get older. Most affected by Osteoarthritis are the weight-bearing joints like the knees, hips, hands, and spine. In arthritic joints, the body’s natural “cushioning” material, cartilage, is destroyed and bone spurs begin to form causing pain and inflammation. The onset of Osteoarthritis can be very subtle; morning joint stiffness is often the first symptom. As the disease progresses, the pain and inflammation worsen and there is reduced range of motion in the affected joint.
Glucosamine Sulfate is an essential building block for the strength and integrity of joint structures. In the body, the main action of Glucosamine Sulfate is to stimulate the manufacture of cartilage components which may help accelerate the repair of damaged joint components.
Glucosamine Sulfate supports the body’s ability in the repair and rebuilding of healthy joints. This is a truly outstanding function of this natural compound, but what is even more important is the safety and lack of side effects associated with traditional treatments which are often significant and sometime life-threatening.
