Glucosamine Tablets for Dogs Description:
Glucosamine Sulphate is an intermediate in mucopolysaccharide systhesis and is important for cartilage tissue regeneration. Cartilage regeneration is carried out by chondroctyes (joint cells), and whether or not they make cartilage is determined by how much glucosamine is available. Hence, glucosamine sulphate is the basic building block of all cartilage, and plays an important role in building and maintaining joint fluid, cartilage and other connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments which are vital for joint health. A number of double-blind studies dating from the early 1980’s demonstrate that oral glucosamine decreases pain and improves mobility in osteoarthritis. These studies demonstrated that osteoarthritis could be arrested with glucosamine sulphate supplementation, if caught before the onset of irreversible joint damage. Significant reductions in joint pain, stiffness, tenderness, and swelling, as well as increased joint performance are the hallmarks of glucosamine sulphate. Even when researches compared it to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug therapy (NSAID), like ibuprofen, the glucosamine sulphate led to greater improvements in pain reduction and measurably better joint performance.
