Why Glucosamine is Essential for Joint Health

For many of us, joint pain is a daily reality. According to the CDC, 1 in 2 adults aged 18 and over have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis, and 1 in 4 adults have severe arthritis. With numbers like that, it's no wonder that thesearch for relief is always ongoing. While there are many different ways to treat joint pain, one of the most effective is through the use of glucosamine. But what exactly is glucosamine, and why does it work so well? Let's take a closer look.

Glucosamine is an essential building block for the formation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans, the main components of cartilage tissue.* These compounds promote water retention within the joint, giving it resiliency by acting as a lubricant and a means to absorb shock.* Glucosamine also works to repair damaged cartilage and maintain its healthy structure.* In addition, glucosamine has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, another important component of joint tissue.*

NOW Foods developed the glucosamine test method chosen as the official AOACI industry standard method. The NOW Foods product testing laboratory also tests finished products for identity, strength, purity and composition against industry standards to ensure product quality and safety. NOW Foods has been setting higher standards in natural products since 1968. That’s why you can be sure that when you take NOW supplements containing glucosamine, you’re getting all the joint-health benefits this essential compound has to offer.

If you're one of the millions of Americans suffering from joint pain, there's no need to suffer any longer. Relief is just a supplement away! Glucosamine has been shown to be an effective treatment for joint pain and stiffness, promoting water retention within the joint while simultaneously repairing damage cartilage.* So why wait? Give NOW supplements containing glucosamine a try today and start feeling better tomorrow. Your joints will thank you!
