Glucosamine Sulphate is a chemical that is found in the human body. It is used by the body to produce a number of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the fluid that surrounds joints.
Joints are cushioned by the fluid and cartilage that surround them. For those with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, and even just as we age, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This can result in joint friction, pain and stiffness. Medical research suggests that taking Glucosamine Sulphate may increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding the joints and help prevent the breakdown of them in the first place. In fact, Glucosamine Sulphate is the only supplement recommended by NHS Orthopaedic Surgeons for the treatment of pain for arthritic conditions.
The ‘Sulphate’ part is also really important! Sulphate is needed by the body to produce cartilage. This is why medical research suggests that Glucosamine Sulphate works better than other forms of Glucosamine.
