Glucosamine is one of the biological chemicals which is found naturally in your body. Glucosamine is thought to stimulate the formation and repair of cartilage – which acts a little like a “cushion” for your joints. Chondroitin sulfate works a little differently. It helps to draw fluid into cartilage, which makes it more “elastic.”
Chondroitin Sulphate is also found naturally in your body. It helps to draw fluid into cartilage, which makes it more “elastic,” thus, an important element in the creation of cartilage. It can also protect existing cartilage from premature degeneration.
The positive effects of glucosamine reducing joint pain are often noticed within a few weeks. Glucosamine/Chondroitin can be taken together with paracetamol and anti-inflammatorys such as ibuprofen and diclofenac.
