Glucosamine + MSM - Vegetarian
Glucosamine + MSM is one of the best vegetarian health supplement combos for joint flexibility and cartilage health and for relieving mobility problems and stiff painful joints associated with osteoarthritis and sports injuries.
Glucosamine & MSM is a vegetarian joint support supplement comprising Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCL) derived from vegetarian source* and not from shellfish. Together Glucosamine HCL and the sulphur mineral MSM provide the building blocks the body needs to to repair the cartilage structure, as well as to prevent loss of cartilage, where it is still intact:-
Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a naturally occurring body chemical, which the body uses to produce cartilage, tendons and ligaments; which are the connective tissue for joints. Glucosamine has been describes as the 'cement of the connective tissue'. Glucosamine occurs only in very small quantities in our normal diet.
MSM: MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a sulphur mineral. and natural pain killer. MSM blocks the inflammatory process while simultaneously stimulating the body’s natural anti-inflammatory hormone, cortisol. MSM also helps increase the synovial fluid level in joints and protects cartilage from being broken down
Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of joints resulting from wear of the articular cartilage. The joints are painful and stiff with restricted movement. It is recognized on x-ray by narrowing of the joint space (due to loss of cartilage). Osteo-arthritis is associated with factors such as ageing, obesity and physical injury (sport or otherwise), all of which can contribute to degeneration of joint cartilage.
Glucosamine + MSM & Osteoarthritis Research: There has been a lot of research supporting the use of glucosamine as a natural treatment for osteoarthritis. More recently, another study (Clin Drug Invest, 2004. 24(6): p. 353-363) has found that Glucosamine and MSM are more effective for arthritis when they are taken together.
The Lancet published a key article in January 1991, which showed that glucosamine was safe and effective to use in the long term, and stopped much of the progression of osteoarthritis in the knee joint. In December 2001, Bandolier updated its findings of all the published evidence. It concluded that there was now even more good evidence to support the use of glucosamine, in reducing the progression and symptoms of osteoarthritis in the short and long term
*Vegetarian Glucosamine: This Glucosamine HCL is suitable for vegans, vegetarians and those with shellfish allergies because it is derived from a vegetable source. Regenasure Glucosamine HCl is a unique fermentation derived glucosamine.
There is 83% glucosamine in Glucosamine HCL compared to only 65% or less glucosamine in Glucosamine Sulfate (the rest being the salt)!
