Glucosamine is a natural component of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. It is a major building block of the substances that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine can be an important source of this vital component of cartilage, helping to reduce cartilage wear, increase joint mobility and decrease joint stiffness. Inflammation and pain are often symptoms of joint degeneration. Glucosamine helps reduce joint inflammation and swelling, and provides temporary relief of the pain associated with degenerative conditions.
