Glucosamine hydrochloride, another form of glucosamine, is considered to be equally effective as the sulfate form. It is absorbed more easily by the body and can be taken in lower dosages with the same effectiveness as glucosamine sulfate. (the Imedex brand contained glucosamine sulfate).
In osteoarthritis, cartilage — the rubbery material that cushions joints — becomes stiff and loses its elasticity. This makes the joint prone to damage and may lead to pain, swelling, loss of movement, and further deterioration.
Since the body’s natural glucosamine is used to make and repair joint cartilage, taking glucosamine as a nutritional supplement helps repair damaged cartilage by augmenting the body’s supply of glucosamine.
Glucosamine is an essential building block for the formation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans, the main components of cartilage tissue. These compounds promote water retention within the joint, giving it resiliency by acting as a lubricant and a means to absorb shock.
