Glucosamine Sulphate is a chemical which occurs naturally in the body (in the fluid around the joints). It is also found in other living organisms, for example the Glucosamine Sulphate found in dietary supplements is often extracted from the shells of shellfish.
Glucosamine Sulphate is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the thick fluid that surrounds joints.
Joints are cushioned by the fluid and cartilage that surround them. In some people with Osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This results in more joint friction, pain, and stiffness. Researchers think that taking Glucosamine Sulphate supplements may either increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding joints or help prevent breakdown of these substances, or maybe both.
Some researchers think the “Sulphate” part of Glucosamine Sulphate is also important. Sulphate is needed by the body to produce cartilage. This is one reason why researchers believe that Glucosamine Sulphate might work better than other forms of Glucosamine such as Glucosamine Hydrochloride or N-acetyl Glucosamine. These other forms do not contain Sulphate.
