Precursor For Chondroitin Sulphate

  • Glucosamine is the precursor for other substances called proteoglycans such as chondroitin and eventually into chondroitin sulfate which is an important component of cartilage.

  • In an analysis of placebo-controlled studies published or performed between 1980 and 2002, the Archives of Internal Medicine reported that those who took oral chondroitin or glucosamine experienced significantly less knee pain, more range-of-motion, increased walking distance and improved activities of daily life without side effects. Those who took oral glucosamine had less narrowing of the space between the joints,suggesting that glucosamine protects the cartilage which cushions joints.
