Can Glucosamine Really Help with Joint Discomfort?

August 15, 2017

Have you heard of the bone broth craze? Many people swear by the beneficial

 

properties of bone broth, claiming

 

that the soup has helped to alleviate

 

a variety of different disorders. That’s

 

likely because bone broth is high in

 

glucosamine, a chemical naturally

 

found in our bodies that helps to protect our joints and lower inflammation of

 

various types.

 

 

If complicated soup-making isn’t your thing, you might wonder whether

 

glucosamine is available in a simple, convenient supplement. Well, the

 

answer is yes! It’s even included in our MotionPlus supplement, for that very

 

reason. So far, we have learned that glucosamine supplementation can help

 

in the following four ways.

 

 

Joint health. As we age, it is normal to lose cartilage around our joints.

 

Glucosamine can slow down this deterioration, and lower chronic

 

inflammation. Since the loss of cartilage can increase pressure and friction on

 

joints, a glucosamine regimen can also help to manage symptoms of

 

osteoarthritis. It is not a cure, but can lead to significant improvements.

 

 

Digestion. You might have heard of “leaky gut”, a condition in which

 

undigested particles (such as gluten and certain toxins) cross the lining of the

 

digestive tract and get into the bloodstream where they don’t belong. At that

 

point, an immune response is triggered in the body, leading to problems such

 

as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and arthritis. Glucosamine

 

has been shown to help repair damaged tissue in the gut, and can lead to

 

improvements in these conditions.

 

 

TMJ symptoms. TMJ is an inflammation of the jaw, which can lead to jaw

 

and neck pain, headaches, and sleeping difficulties. Glucosamine can help to

 

alleviate this inflammation and result in a reduction of TMJ symptoms.

 

 

Bone pain. Glucosamine also aids in bone healing, so those with low bone

 

density, pain, or a history of fractures can also benefits from

 

supplementation. It might even help to speed up recovery from bone injuries

 

such as fractures.

 

 

It’s important to remember that no supplement is 100 percent safe for

 

everyone; however, glucosamine has been shown to carry a low risk of side

 

effects or interactions. If you’re allergic to shellfish, check the labels on all

 

supplements to ensure that you aren’t using one made from those sources.
