Supplements #16: GLUCOSAMINE supports joint health.

GLUCOSAMINE supports joint health. It is made from shrimp or crab shells and its chemical structure is simply glucose with an amino group on it. This simple molecule is absorbed into the bloodstream and has been shown to enter the fluid inside the joint called the synovium. The synovial fluid lubricates the joint. The joint normally contains substances made from glucosamine called proteoglycans, glycolipids, and proteoglycans. It is approved as a dietary supplement to support joint structure and function. In studies over two years in knee joints with arthritis, it was shown to reduce the loss of cartilage in the joint and preventing narrowing of the joint space. Glucosamine is the most widely consumed non-vitamin or mineral supplement. If you are an athlete or anyone who does a lot of impact exercise, you should be taking Glucosamine Sulfate. Your knees and other joints will thank you!! #drdavidheber #arthritis #osteoarthritis #knee #hips #exercise #glucosamine to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.comnand www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
