Osteoarthritis (OA), a chronic and painful condition, is the most common of all joint diseases. It was previously thought to be a progressive, degenerative disorder, but it is now known that a reversal of the disease can occur.
Glucosamine is required for healthy joint cartilage as it is a component of cartilage as well as stimulating repair. As we age, our production of glucosamine declines and some people are likely to experience symptoms such as joint tenderness and impaired mobility.
Supplementing with Glucosamine has been shown to alleviate sore joints and impaired mobility. There is also evidence that glucosamine can, over a longer period, reduce joint narrowing, indicating the slowing of joint deterioration.
Unlike some pharmaceutical alternatives, Glucosamine does not cause damage to the stomach lining and kidney toxicity. Boron is an important mineral also needed for healthy bones and joints. In most parts of New Zealand and Australia, our estimated intake of Boron is less than 3 mg per day resulting in arthritic symptoms being seen in many elderly people in the population.
