Some studies suggest that supplementing with Glucosamine can reduce the rate of joint cartilage degeneration as well as the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine occurs as a nutrient naturally. It is an amino sugar and also a precursor in the synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. These proteins and lipids are major components of joint cartilage which is needed to withstand force from various impacts and it also acts as a cushion for the joints whenever the body moves physically.
Each capsule of Scitec Nutrition's "Mega Glucosamine" provides you with a full active 1000 mg dosage of Glucosamine Sulphate. The capsules should be swallowed whole with a tall glass of water before meals twice a day to promote joint health.
Anyone who engages in physical activity on a regular basis can reap the benefits of Glucosamine. The actual active ingredient is derived from shellfish and the medical research results vary. While approximately half of the trials done on Glucosamine used by humans with mild osteoarthritis pains suggests that there little to no pain relief, the other half suggests that Glucosamine can indeed be beneficial in terms of pain relief for the same group of patients. Furthermore, studies also suggest that supplementing with Glucosamine regularly can reduce the rate of which joint cartilage degenerates as well as the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine is generally a very safe and well-tolerated dietary supplement to use for all individuals. The most common side effect is flatulence and can most probably be reasoned with the fact that the individual experiencing the side effect has a shellfish allergy.
