Glucosamine : D-Glucosamine Hydrochloride and sulphate
Glucosamine encourages to create the fundamental building material of the cartilage i.e. proteoglycans and collagen. Proteoglycans with their special structure resemble bottle cleaning brush. The space between the bristles of this imagined bottle cleaning brush is filled with collagen. While collagen is flexible substance, proteoglycans provide the cartilage with strength. In a healthy joint, the combination of proteoglycans and collagen is such that the cartilage is both strong and flexible enough. With age, however, the ability of the organism to produce the necessary amount of Glucosamine is reduced and it is therefore advisable to supplement it in the form of food supplements.
The main action of Glucosamine in human body is to stimulate the synthesis of cartilage in joints. It also inhibits the degradation of cartilage which is associated with Osteoarthritics and the effect can be relief from the pain and inflammation around joints. Glucosamine has anti-inflammatory effect and prevents the creation of enzymes which can damage the cartilage.
Also Glucosamine has an important physiological function to human body as it takes part in the detoxification of liver and kidneys.
D-Glucosamine Hydrochloride contains 98% Glucosamine where as Glucosamine Sulphate contains 75% Glucosamine. Both behave similarly in the gastrointestinal environment to liberate the active Glucosamine compound by absorption.
