Have you heard of the supplement glucosamine?

If you’re like me you’re interested in ways to improve and maintain your health. That’s why when I read about glucosamine I thought you’d like to read some information about it and share what you think.

Glucosamine is produced naturally in the body to assist with the repair and maintenance of cartilage. That’s why  Nature’s Best recommends this supplement and reports that it has had good results in clinical studies and with the millions of people who have tried it. The company, which sells glucosamine sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride, recommends the sulphate version because it’s the form that has been used in the most clinical students and that research appears to reveal that it is more effective than the hydrochloride.

Because each person has different needs within their body as well as different mineral deficiencies  it is important to make a decision on what will work best for you by evaluating the information presented. In some individuals the supplement has been used to prevent cartilage degeneration, treat arthritis and has been used as a therapy for osteoarthritis.

Whatever supplements or minerals you decide to consume I always recommend talking it over with your physician. In my situation, I take about 12 pills a day and I am always cautious about adding anything without finding out the interaction between my medications and any supplements or minerals.

Are there any supplements or minerals you take on a regular basis? Have you heard of glucosamine?
