MSM Glucosamine is specifically designed for reducing pain and swelling, and improving joint function in those suffering from osteoarthritis. MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a naturally occurring form of organic sulfur found in living organisms. In humans, sulfur is present throughout the body in several organic compounds and is a factor in a number of different processes. Glucosamine is composed of glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine sulfate is naturally found in joint cartilage and synovial fluid, and the body requires sulfate to produce cartilage tissue. MSM and glucosamine sulfate seem to produce superior results for pain relief in osteoarthritis when used in combination than when they are used separately.
MSM’s ability to reduce knee pain and improve physical function in osteoarthritis is due to its anti-inflammatory and connective tissue supporting activities. Glucosamine helps the body to create cushioning fluids and tissues around joints. It also repairs damaged arthritic joints, reduces pain, and builds synovial fluids.
MSM Glucosamine is an ideal supplement for those looking for relief from osteoarthitis or joint pain and inflammation. AOR’s MSM Glucosamine has the added benefit of being a vegetarian, shellfish-free glucosamine formula, making it suitable for vegetarians and those with shellfish allergies.
