Glucosamine for Arthritis

Glucosamine for Arthritis

Glucosamine is a “building block” molecule that your body produces naturally.  Glucosamine is essential in the production of proteins important to joint health.

Glucosamine stimulates the production of cartilage.  In young healthy bodies cartilage cells reproduce and protect themselves.  As we age cartilage cells die and are not replaced.  Glucosamine helps stop the break-down of cartilage and reduce knee pain.

Glucosamine can be obtained over the counter and is a safe joint health supplement.
