GlucoMax contains Glucosamine which plays an important part in the production, maintenance, and repair of cartilage (a cushion that exists between the meeting of two bones) which prevents them from rubbing against each other creating pain as we move. It also helps form ligaments, tendons, and nails.
Our joints should produce a sufficient amount of glucosamine naturally within our bodies to keep our cartilage in good condition. If this does not happen, cartilage can dry out, degenerate, crack, and may even completely wear away. Left unprotected, joints can become swollen, stiff, inflamed, tender, and painful, leading to osteoarthritis.
Normal and Arthritic Joints
Glucosamine supplements are widely used for those who suffer from Osteoarthritis. In osteoarthritis, cartilage can become stiff and lose elasticity. This makes the joint prone to damage and may lead to pain, loss of movement, swelling and finally further deterioration.
Since the body's natural glucosamine production is used to help make and repair joint cartilage, taking a glucosamine supplement will help repair damaged cartilage by increasing the body's supply of glucosamine. It is glucosamine that stimulates the production of the two essential building blocks of cartilage - Glycosaminoglycans and Proteoglycans, which helps to slow down this degenerative process and maintain joint health.
