Keep Yourself Moving with Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are compounds that are naturally found in the body, especially in the cartilage found around the joints. These compounds are essential in keeping the cartilage elastic, healthy and strong. As the body ages, its natural levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin tend to drop, causing the cushioning benefit of the joint cartilage to break down, which often leads to pain and swelling. This can impact one’s daily activities and make moving a struggle. One of the best ways to keep yourself agile is by supplementing with Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a biological compound that is naturally occurring in the body. It is vital for building cartilage, the rubbery, spongy tissue that enables joints to flex and move smoothly and easily. It is the joint shock-absorber. When Glucosamine levels drop, the cartilage surrounding the joints can begin to deteriorate causing pain during activity.
Supplementing with Glucosamine can help to restore the cushioning around the joints that lack sufficient cartilage. It does this by producing substances in the body that attract and bind water into tissues that build cartilage. This helps ease pain, allowing for properly functioning joint structure.
What is Chondroitin?
Also naturally occurring in the body, Chondroitin is believed to help cartilage absorb water and nutrients to keep it hydrated, spongy and healthy.
Once the cartilage starts to deteriorate, symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and inflammation appear, indicating signs of arthritis. Support for joint health becomes imperative to continue an active lifestyle.
Nature’s Blessing Glucosamine and Chondroitin Capsules work to restore mobility and pain-free movement. Chondroitin slows cartilage deterioration which allows the Glucosamine to work on rebuilding tissues. Support your joint health before the first sign of pain and keep yourself moving!
