Glucosamine Sulphate is a globally popular supplement, primarily used to address joint aches and pains. Many an athlete or gym enthusiast can train for years without suffering from joint issues but years of lifting, jumping, running and active general life can cause significant wear and tear on joints, at which point Glucosamine may be a useful addition in your supplement regime.
Glucosamine Sulphate is an amino sugar (naturally occuring in meat, fish and shellfish) that is a building block for part of the structural component of cartilage, known as glycosaminoglycans. Independent studies frequently demonstrate that users (often arthritis sufferers in said studies) report reduced joint pain. The proposed action of this is its ability to improve cartilage regeneration. Cartilage is a connective tissue found in joints (amongst other places) which can eventually degrade due to overuse or acute damage. Cartilage healing also takes time due to a lack of blood supply so to cut down on recovery times Glucosamine supplementation can be extremely useful. Studies are also showing a reduced progression of osteoarthritis in those who supplement 1000-2000mg per day, due to its ability to mitigate joint space narrowing.
If joint pain is an issue, or you suffer from chronic osteoarthritis then supplementation of Glucosamine may well allow for quicker recovery, reduced pain and less joint degradation, all of which can offer massive improvements to quality of life. The more experienced lifters and athletes will all agree on this point - looking after joints is a vital aspect of enabling optimal performance and training capability year-round.
