So what causes the pain of arthritis?
This can happen as the result of an injury and also as part of the aging process, cartilage, which is found between the joints in our body, starts to breakdown. The cartilage helped prevent the joints from rubbing together and when it is not longer produced in sufficient amounts or when our body becomes inefficient in making this, pain and a deterioration of the joint develop. Osteoarthritis is a common condition that develops from this deterioration.
What is cartilage and what does it do?
Cartilage is a watery substance, made up of 65-80% water, collagen and other tissue. Unfortunately as we age, or as the result of an injury or poor diet, our ability to renew cartilage can be impaired, causing damage to the bone ends, as they rub against each other. Collagen is a primary connective tissue in the body and a vital part of cartilage. This, and other substances, helps maintain structure and provide elasticity, while acting as a shock absorber. The formation of new collagen is especially important to help prevent joint problems and to maintain active mobility. Glucosamine and chondroitin are essential elements for the production of collagen and cartilage in the body.
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a natural substance made in the body. It is found largely in the cartilage and is an important factor in the structure of bone, skin, nails, hair and body tissues. It is essential for healthy cartilage to help maintain healthy joints and pain free mobility. Glucosamine supplements are made from the shells of crabs and shrimps.
What is Chondroitin?
The cartilage in the joints act as a spongy shock absorber. To do this it needs special substances to attract fluid. Chondroitin is a substance, made in the body, which attracts fluid to the cartilage like a liquid magnet. In this way, chondroitin protects the cartilage from breakdown and it also stimulates the synthesis of new cartilage, important for healthy joints.
How can we help our body to make more cartilage to protect our joints?
We can take dietary supplements that contain Glucosamine and chondroitin and this will give our body the ingredients to make new cartilage, ligaments and tendons in the body. As well as this, supplements containing these can provide an anti-inflammatory effect, reducing pain and swelling. These 2 natural substances, when taken together, can actually halt the disease process in its tracks and help the body heal itself.
Are there side effects associated with taking Glucosamine & Chondroitin?
Glucosamine is non-toxic, even at doses that far exceed normal use. The few side effects that have been reported are limited to minor stomach upsets or nausea. But this was noted when very large amounts of this were taken. Chondroitin is non toxic. A 6 year study tracking people taking doses of 1500mg to 10,000mg per day has shown no toxicity at all.
