Although this natural arthristis remedy still inspires controversy, there is increasing evidence that Glucosamine does in fact relieve joint pain and inflammation for many arthritis sufferers, and that it may slow progression of the disease.
The Journal of American Medical Association says, "Glucosamine Sulfate works for arthritis providing you use a quality product".Avoid If... No known medical conditions preclude the use of Glucosamine.
Although Glucosamine may relieve your osteoarthritis, other treatments--such as a regular exercise program--remain just as important. If you have this condition, it's wise to keep in touch with your doctor for regular check-ups.
Glucosamine does not produce serious side effects. You might, however, experience mild symptoms such as diarrhea, heartburn, indigestion, and nausea. Try taking the medication with food if it upsets your stomach (or if you have an ulcer). If this fails to eliminate the symptoms, check with your doctor.
Possible Drug Interactions
Glucosamine sulfate taken alone or in combination with chondroitin does not interfere with NSAIDs, aspirin, or any other anti-inflammatory or analgesic medication. Indeed, there is some evidence that taking this supplement may help people reduce their use of these strong drugs.
If You Are Pregnant or Breastfeeding Check with your doctor before taking Glucosamine while pregnant or breastfeeding.
How to Prepare
Glucosamine is available in three forms:
- Glucosamine sulfate: This is considered the preparation of choice.
- Glucosamine hydrochloride: This is the least expensive variety. It is used primarily for animals.
- N-acetyl glucosamine: This form delivers less of the active ingredient.
There is no consensus on the ideal dosage of Glucosamine sulfate. Some doctors recommend 1, 000 to 2, 000 milligrams per day. Others suggest up to 3, 000 mg a day, since they insist it is safe and produces no serious side effects.
You may adjust your dosage according to your response. If you are overweight or are taking a water pill (diuretic), you may need a larger dose of each supplement.
