Glucosamine is an amino-monosaccharide that is the principal substrate used in the biosynthesis of macromolecules that comprise articular cartilage. It is believed to play a role in cartilage repair.
Applications
It is a natural anti-inflammatory and healing support for joints. Glucosamine benefits the joints by alleviating pain, reducing inflammation,
healing damaged tissues and improving motion. Research indicates that glucosamine may be an effective treatment for improving joint motility. Phytosterols (derived from plants) help prevent inflammation and prevent pain.
Cautions
INTERACTIONS:
Warfarin: Glucosamine might increase the anticoagulant effects of warfarin and increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
Antimitotic chemotherapy: Theoretically, glucosamine might induce resistance to etoposide and doxorubicin by reducing the medicines inhibition of topoisomerase II, an enzyme required for DNA
replication in tumour cells.
Acetaminophen: Anecdotal reports have indicated that glucosamine might decrease pain control in individuals with osteoarthritis.
Anti-diabetic medicines: Preliminary research has suggested that glucosamine might increase insulin resistance or decrease insulin production. This may be a concern that glucosamine might
worsen diabetes and decrease the effectiveness of diabetes medicines.
Ezetimibe: Ezetimibe inhibits intestinal absorption of phytosterols and reduces plasma concentration.
Pravastatin: There is some evidence that pravastatin can lower blood levels of phytosterols.
