Properties and effects: Research shows that glucosamine may help reduce joint inflammation and swelling, increase joint mobility, and provide temporary relief from the pain of osteoarthritis.
Mode of action and pharmacokinetics: Glucosamine is formed in the body from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. It is a key part of the structure of cartilage, which is essential for proper joint function.
As patients get older, cartilage becomes more susceptible to breakdown and damage, which may result in the typical symptoms of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine tablets can be an important additional source of this component of cartilage as patient age. Glucosamine has been shown to regenerate cartilage and to exhibit some anti-inflammatory effects.
