Glucosamine was once a popular product for people with arthritis.

You may have even tried it.  However, sales in the U.S. have slowed recently.  Why?  Unfortunately, these products have recently come under fire. As a result, many believe they are not effective.  According to the Arthritis Foundation many studies confirm this.  “Chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine are popular supplements used for two reasons.  First, to treat the pain.  Second, to help with loss of function due to arthritis. However, most studies show almost no improvement for either problem.  This was compared to placebo for both pain relief and joint damage.”

Why is this popular supplement ineffective?  Because it is chemically complete.  This means it cannot react with your body.  So if you take it, your body cannot use it.  This is because it cannot interact with anything.  In order for glucosamine to be effective, it has to be chemically active.  Glucosamine sulFUR is chemically active.  This means it CAN interact with the body.  In other words the binding sites on sulfur are available.  Meanwhile they are used up in sulfate.

Of course there is one other vital substance necessary for joint health.  What is it?  Enzymes are essential for joint health.  But why are enzymes necessary?  These critical enzymes promote the use of glucosamine sulfur for joint health.  It is important to remember that every chemical reaction in your body requires enzymes.  Obviously, this includes cartilage and joint material.

So what’s the good news?  The good news is I carry a product with these vital ingredients.  In addition to glucosamine sulfur it also includes the required enzymes.   These enzymes promote the usage of glucosamine by the joint.  This, in turn, promotes healthy joint function.
