Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring chemical found in the human body. It is in the fluid that is around joints.
Glucosamine sulfate is commonly used for arthritis. Scientists have studied it extensively for this use. It is most often used for a type of arthritis called osteoarthritis. This is the most common type of arthritis.
Over 20 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a disease characterized by degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint as well as bony overgrowth.
According to the Center for Disease Control, the direct and indirect costs are estimated to be approaching $90 billion.
Overall Osteoarthritis affects 13.9% of adults aged 25 and older and 33.6% (12.4 million) of those 65+; an estimated 26.9 million US adults in 2005 up from 21 million in 1990 (believed to be conservative estimate)1
Many adults have sought to control their pain by taking pharmaceutical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily to control their pain in order to just do their basic activities.
While these NSAIDs may temporarily relieve the pain, it is not without detrimental side effects. Reports indicate that among the most frequently prescribed medications worldwide, NSAIDs have been linked with increased blood pressure, increased risk of cardiovascular disease and gastrointestinal toxicity.
Because of these alarming concerns, many are seeking natural alternative supplements.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis may include joint pain and progressive stiffness that develops gradually.
Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the fingers, arms, legs, and wrists occurring in the same joints on both sides of the body, especially upon awakening.
