 What is Glucosamine?

GLUCOSAMINE (Vegan) The body manufactures glucosamine, a simple molecule composed of glucose and an amine (nitrogen and two molecules of hydrogen). Glucosamine is an important building block needed by the body to manufacture specialised molecules called glycosaminoglycans, found in cartilage. Glucosamine is almost exclusively researched and used for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). Once absorbed, glucosamine is taken up by the joint tissues, where it is incorporated into the connective tissue matrix of cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.

Viridian uses a vegan (non-shellfish) form of glucosamine as Glucosamine sulphate 2KCL.

What is Glucosamine used for?

Glucosamine Sulphate for OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA)

osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease affecting mainly the weight-bearing joints and joints of the hands. Many studies have shown that glucosamine produces much better results than NSAIDs and placebos in relieving the pain and inflammation of OA. The advantage of glucosamine is that it gets to the root of the problem by reducing pain and helping the body heal and repair damaged joints. Symptomatic relief can take up to 12 weeks to become apparent.

Can glucosamine help with Sport Injuries?

recent research reviewing the effects of glucosamine and knee pain, due to cartilage damage, showed that glucosamine supplementation can provide some degree of pain relief and improved function in those taking 2000mg daily for 12 weeks.

Is Glucosamine Sulphate ANTI-INFLAMMATORY?

recent research has demonstrated that glucosamine inhibits several inflammatory markers known to be involved in OA, these include cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2), PGE2, and NFkappaB. Thus, glucosamine is being noted for its role as a symptom- and structure-modifying supplement in the treatment of OA.
