Glucosamine supports joints
Glucosamine is formed naturally in the body as a combination of glucose and the aforementioned amino acid Glutamine. It repairs cartilage and other tissue. While we form glucosamine naturally, production in our bodies slows as we age.
Research suggests that Glucosamine is useful for those suffering with osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, as we grow out of our 20s and 30s, it is wise for all of us to start thinking of joint support. Glucosamine is a great choice as a protective barrier for our joints, and is often taken in combination with the supplement MSM.
