Battery Nutrition Glucosamine Supplements
Battery Nutrition Glucosamine Sulphate is amino sugar that is a building block for part of the structural component of cartilage (glycosaminoglycans).
Many studies have shown that users of Glucosamine Sulphate self-report reduced joint pain; in the research is mainly used arthritic population.
The main benefit of supplementing with Glucosamine Sulphate is to aid cartilage regeneration. Cartilage is a connective tissue found in the joints (amongst other places).
Overuse can damage/wear away Cartilage, and due to the lack of blood supply it is slow to heal.
One of the reasons for osteoarthritis is joint space; Glucosamine Sulphate has been shown to reduce the progression of osteoarthritis, with patients in research experiencing less narrowing in joint space.
- Helps to maintain healthy joints and connective tissues
- Prevents cartilage degeneration
- Can aid and restore joint function and mobility
- Strengthens cartilage and ligaments
- Prevents and treats joint problems (pain and inflammation)
- Helps repair joint damage
- Promotes joint lubrication
- Renewing the health of tissues
Glucosamine is a monosaccharide, which is naturally produced in the body from glucose and glutamine.
This substance is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, which are essential to the synthesis of connective tissue components and crucial to maintaining and renewing the health of tissues that make up the cartilage and joints.
There are no food sources of glucosamine, so this substance must be obtained exclusively through the use of dietary supplements.
Glucosamine supplements are produced from the exoskeleton of shellfish (shrimp, lobsters and crabs).
Glucosamine is essential for maintaining and renewing the connective tissues that make up cartilage.
This monosaccharide inhibits enzymes that lead to degradation of chondrocytes, which means it increases the concentration of these cells.
Chondrocytes are the structures that promote the production of cartilage and synovial fluid (responsible for the lubrication of cartilage).
Glucosamine is also a precursor to proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, essential components for the synthesis of connective tissue and joints.
The body needs glucosamine to regenerate and form the cartilage coating the bone joints and to form the ligaments that connect the joints to the bones.
When there is a lack of glucosamine, the formation of ligaments and cartilage is impaired, causing damage to articular structures.
The most common symptoms are limited joint mobility, joint stiffness (movement range becoming limited), pain, swelling and joint inflammation.
Joint problems can greatly disturb the normal course of daily activities, and if not promptly treated, they can become more serious and/or permanent.
Everyone use joints a lot, which can lead to abrasions over time. Age affects how and how fast our structures are regenerated and synovial fluid is produced, which helps to maintain strong and flexible cartilage.
People who are overweight are more prone to joint abrasions and bone problems. Athletes, who are often subject to forces of considerable impact, should consume glucosamine to prevent excessive articular abrasions, as well as cartilage and ligament damage.
Glucosamine has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain caused by excessive joint abrasion.
Such complaints can arise due to aging, intense physical exercise or diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine supplements restore the functionality and mobility of joints, and are very effective in the recovery and prevention of joint problems.
Who should use Battery Nutrition Glucosamine Supplements?
Glucosamine Sulphate is suitable for anyone aiming to achieve optimum bone health, however, it is particularly important for those who are physically active and exercise on a regular basis as they are more prone to premature degeneration of their joints through repetitive movements and exercise.
