and Chondroitin are two molecules that make up the type of cartilage found in joints.
Inside your joints, cartilage undergoes a constant process of breakdown and
repair. However, to be properly repaired, the building blocks of cartilage must
be present and available. The theory behind using the glucosamine and
chondroitin joint supplements is that more of
the cartilage building blocks will be available for cartilage repair.
Glucosamine is a part of a molecule called a
glycosaminoglycan, this molecule is used in the formation and repair of
Chondroitin is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in
cartilage and is responsible for the resiliency of cartilage.
There have been numerous
studies to examine the treatment effects of glucosamine and chondroitin. Many
of these studies lasted only one to two months and provided some indication the
joint supplements led patients to experience more pain reduction when taking
glucosamine and chondroitin than patients receiving a placebo. The improvement
experienced by these patients was similar to improvements experienced by
patients taking nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) that have been a mainstay of non-operative arthritis
treatment. The difference is that NSAIDs carry an increased risk of side
effects including gastrointestinal complaints and bleeding.
The usual recommended
dose is 1,500 mg each day. Patients can either take this at one time or split
it up two or three times a day.
