Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage lining the surfaces of the joints wears thin due to the bones rubbing on each other for a long period. It's also caused by reduced production of proteoglycan, an essential component of cartilage, as we age. This results in joint pain and stiffness.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and are required for the biosynthesis of proteoglycan. It's been suggested that supplementation of these products increases the amount of cartilage and fluid in the joints, and/or reduces the rate of decline in these substances leading to relief of pain and improved joint health.
Glucosamine is known to be involved in stimulating proteoglycan synthesis and decreasing the activity of enzymes that break down the cartilage lining the parts of the bones in the joints that rub against each other.
Studies into the use of glucosamine as a preventative complementary medicine tend to focus on those aged over 50. They have found effectiveness for treatment of knee osteoarthritis in older age groups.
Regular supplementation with glucosamine sulfate has shown to have a small to moderate effect by slowing the rate of joint cartilage degeneration if taken regularly for three years.
Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to be effective for relieving symptoms of osteoarthritis. One study found patients with hand osteoarthritis had reduced symptoms in osteoarthritic pain.
