for a less technical explanation. Here we go...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and
its typical targets are your hands, hips, knees, feet and spine.
Sometimes, it will attack your knuckles, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
I should mention that these are not the only areas of your body
subject to attack however. There are 143 joints in the human body
and any of them may be subject to osteoarthritis. When OA attacks
it causes a degeneration of the cartilage and fluids that protect
of you who live with this debilitating disease, you are all too
familiar with what the doctors have to say. Some will tell you
to take one of those "over-the-counter" remedies. You
products like Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen. (Called
NSAIDs) In fact, some $8 Billion dollars a year is spent on these
kinds of products in this country every year. Unfortunately, when
it comes to using them to fight the pain of osteoarthritis, they
can do you more harm than good.
will obtain some temporary pain relief using them, there is also
evidence that indicates that they will also cause a progression
of osteoarthritis. Not only do they not stop joint degeneration,
they are also associated with stomach ulcers and liver damage.
In the more serious cases of OA, doctors will take more extreme
steps by ordering dangerous steroid injections or prescribing
COX-2 inhibitors. While you might get some temporary pain relief,
you are clearly more prone to dangerous side effects and they
will do nothing to help you with the core of the problem. After
all, what you are really seeking is two-fold. First and foremost,
you want your pain to end. Secondly, you want to address the medical
problem itself and end (or reverse) the progression of your OA.
Glucosamine & Osteoarthritis
Glucosamine is a "chondroprotective agent", which
relieves the symptoms of OA without any side effects while at
the same time slowing the progression of the disease.
(and chondroitin) is produced naturally within your body. However,
it is often not produced in sufficient quantities causing the
onset of osteoarthritis, joint pain, and cartilage degeneration.
That is the reason that we must rely on synthetic products to
replenish our systems.
What has happened
to your body when you develop osteoarthritis is that the cartilage
(that acts as a "cushion" between bones) has deteriorated.
Healthy (articular) cartilage is what we need to make movement
and motion of our joints pain free. In other words, cartilage
allows bones to move across one another providing an ultra-smooth,
slippery surface to do so. When your body lacks glucosamine,
however, this all important cartilage deteriorates.
The makeup of articular cartilage
Most of the cartilage we are discussing contains between 65% and
80% water. The remainder is comprised of collagen and proteoglycans.
The collagen portion of cartilage is what gives it elastic-like
properties and provides the "shock absorber" qualities
that you need for pain-free movement. Of equal importance, the
collagen is what holds proteoglycans in place. Now, let's try
to make some sense out of this.
Proteoglycans are nothing more than molecules composed of sugar
and proteins. Inside your cartilage matrix they "wrap"
themselves in and around the collagen fibers. So what happens
then? The proteoglycans add stretching capability and they act
to capture water. Remember, we already said that 65% to 80% of
your cartilage is made up of water. It is this squeezing "in
and out" activity as your joints are in motion that is facilitated
by these glucosamine created proteoglycans. Now there is just
one final ingredient we need to add to the mix.
The principal producer of both collagen and proteoglycans are
chondrocytes. So long as everything is working correctly, you
are going to have healthy and vibrant articular cartilage. There
is however one down side here. Chondrocytes also produce enzymes
that act to "destroy" the older, worn out collagen and
proteoglycans. Unfortunately, one negative effect can be the overproduction
of enzymes that are destroying collagen and proteoglycans. Another
way of putting it is that your body is "working against itself."
When things go wrong
Once this essential part of normal joint functioning goes bad,
it's a straight downhill run. Of course, that's why you are reading
this material right now. You're in pain and you are looking for
answers. That pain that's driving you crazy is caused by cartilage
that is developing ragged edges and bone that is overgrown. It
is "pockmarked" and abrasive. As the problem increases,
the lining of your joints is becoming inflamed (the synovium).
The synovium is the area where nerves and nerve endings are bundled.
The inescapable fact is that it's going to send out pain messages.
As part of your body's defense mechanism, the synovium is fighting
to produce more synovial fluid. It is this fluid that provides
your cartilage with its "slippery" qualities. Unfortunately,
your synovium goes into "overdrive" and the result is
that too much fluid is produced. In turn, this builds up in the
joint space and when this happens, things are getting out of control.
we have demonstrated, Glucosamine has been clinically shown to
significantly reduce the pain of osteoarthritis. In Europe, this
has been an accepted fact for the past two decades and of course,
this became major news in the U.S. in 2001. And when we discuss
