Joint Integrity and Movement
Glucosamine sulfate’s main physiological effect is to stimulate the production of glycosaminoglycans and promote the incorporation of sulfur into the cartilage to maintain its gel-like structure and ability to act as a shock absorber.
Normal Inflammatory Balance
Although exact mechanisms of action are yet to be established, research suggests that glucosamine supplementation helps modulate cytokine production in addition to directly stimulating chondrocytes (cartilage cells that help produce and maintain a healthy cartilage matrix), while aiding in the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage. Glucosamine has been found to maintain normal inflammatory balance and alleviate oxidative stress.
