Glucosamine supplements help to support joint health. When there is excess wear, more raw ‘material’ is needed for the repair of the joints and surrounding structures in our bodies. If body chemistry is unbalanced, it may be that insufficient glucosamine is formed, which limits our ability to repair wear and damage to our joints.

Equally, as we age, the enzyme glucosamine synthetase becomes less effective, which slows the rate of matrix repair - this is why healing is slower in the elderly. Glucosamine speeds regeneration - as long as your rate of repair keeps up with the rate of tissue loss, your bones and tissues will stay healthy. There are no edible sources of Glucosamine - bound forms do occur in cartilage, but in meat this is gristle and we tend not to eat it.
