Elbow and hip function
Glucosamine is necessary to support and maintain joints and connective tissues‚ which may have been impacted by wear and tear or aging. A shortage of Glucosamine may lead to deterioration of the normal function of synovial ? uid‚ connective tissues‚ joints‚ and muscles.
There are several forms of Glucosamine (D-glucosamine HCI‚ N-Acetyl glucosamine and D-glucosamine sulfate) that can play a biologically active role in maintaining proper joint and connective tissue function and in the synthesis of connective tissue.
Glucosamine HCl is part of many large macromolecules which serve as structural elements in cell walls‚ intercellular spaces and connective tissues such as cartilage‚ tendons‚ ligaments‚ and intervertebral discs.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine supports the production of glycoproteins to strengthen the structural integrity and healthy function of various glycoprotein layers throughout the body (such as those found in the digestive‚ genito-urinary‚ and respiratory tracts).
Glucosamine Sulfate helps the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) hold more water and thereby support joint ? exibility‚ cushioning ability‚ and resiliency.
• Glucosamine is used by chondrocytes to produce GAGs (such as hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfates)‚ proteoglycans‚ and other components of cartilage that give the joint ? uid greater elasticity‚ shock resistance and lubricating power.
• Glucosamine is a natural building block of the connective tissues that help support and hold together the ligaments‚ tendons‚ bones and cartilage in the body. Glucosamine helps maintain the thick‚ gelatinous nature of the ? uids and tissues in and around the joints and in between vertebrae.
