Glucosamine plays a key role in stimulating the body to manufacture "proteoglycans" which maintain fluid in the cartilage. Cartilage is a rubbery pliable pad that line joints and acts as protective shock absorbers, so that we avoid bone-on bone contact. Cartilage is made up of living tissue that is continually broken down and replaced, however, injury, stress on joints, and the aging process itself, can harm cartilage tissue. Glucosamine helps prevent arthritic symptoms and relieves the pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, It is involved in the formation of the nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones, ligaments and heart valves.
