Glucosamine is a natural sugar produced by the body and found in certain foods. It plays an important role in the production, maintenance, and repair of cartilage, which is the white, smooth, rubber-like padding that covers the ends of bones and prevents them from rubbing against each other painfully as we move. It also helps form ligaments, tendons, and nails. Glucosamine stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, two essential building blocks of cartilage. In most cases, the joints produce sufficient glucosamine to keep the cartilage in good repair, but if they fail to do so, it dries out, degenerates, cracks, and may even completely wear away. Left unprotected the joints can then become stiff and not function as well. The use of Glucosamine helps to replenish a key nutrient.
Athletes will gain benefit to their knee cartilage with 1500mg of glucosamine sulphate for 40 days and the 750mg for 90 to 100 days. This will provide significant support and help with recovery.
