What is Glucosamine & Chondroitin?

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin are found naturally in the human body. Glucosamine helps in the formation and repair of cartilage (cushion in our joints) and Chondroitin prevents cartilage from being damaged.

Glucosamine, a compound found in the fluid around our joints ensures the smooth working of our cartilage, tendons and ligaments. The production of glucosamine in our bodies slows with age, leading to disorder in the joints and causes pain and swelling. While seashells are the natural sources for Glucosamine, this compound can also be synthesized in a laboratory.

Glucosamine is usually paired with Chondroitin for the treatment of joint disorders. Chondroitin is a major component of glycosaminoglycans – a component which gives structure to our cartilage. Chondroitin absorbs fluid, especially water, into our connective tissues and keeps our cartilage healthy. The natural sources for Chondroitin are shark and beef cartilage and it’s also possible to make this compound in the lab.

How does it work

As we age, our joints become increasingly stiffer and less flexible due to a decrease in fluid found in the cavities of our joints. When cartilage is unable to hold water it gradually loses its cushioning ability, causing friction in the joints.

In osteoarthritis, the cartilage wears out and the bones begin to rub together, causing pain. A combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements can help rebuild the cushion (cartilage) that surrounds the joints, keeping joint problems from getting worse.

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin increase fluid in cartilage, helping our joints store more water. When our joints hold more water their shock absorbing ability also increases, thus making our joints stronger.  

Used to treat

  • Glucosamine and Chondroitin are mostly used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee. However, research says that it can also be used in treating osteoarthritis of the hip or spine.
  • Glucosamine is also used to trest chondropathia patellae, a condition of painful and irritable knee, commonly found in athletes, particularly runners.

Key benefits

Several scientific studies suggest that Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements can be used in treating Osteoarthritis. However, recently bodybuilders and athletes have turned to these supplements to get a stronger and healthier body.  These supplements can be used to:

  •  Reduce Osteoarthritis pain, possibly due to an anti-inflammatory effect from glucosamine. 
  • Improve joint function in athletes, usually in runners, who tend to have problems in their knees.

Goes well with/compliments

  • Methylsulphonyl-methane MSM (for sports related injuries involving joints).
  • Manganese ascorbate (to enhance support for connective tissue).

How to take/dosage

Based on several scientific studies, the recommended dose of these supplements are:

  • Glucosamine: 1500mg once daily or 500mg three times a day.
  • Chondroitin: 1200mg once daily, 400mg three times a day or 600mg twice a day.

Please consult your physician before beginning your supplementation program.

Side effects

While Glucosamine and Chondroitin are considered safe for most adults, they may cause the following side effects:

  • Gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation.
  • Nausea, vomiting and heartburn.
  • Increase in blood sugar levels of diabetic patients. 
  • Allergic reactions including hives and nasal congestions.

Interactions

Taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin with the following drugs may cause an interaction:

  • Warfarin – It is highly recommended not to take these drugs together. Glucosamine can enhance the action of Warfarin, causing excessive blood thinning and life threatening bruising and bleeding.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – The anti-inflammatory activity of NSAIDs may increase if you take Glucosamine. You will need lower doses of NSAIDs because of this interaction. Please consult your physician before using.
  • Blood sugar lowering medications or insulin – If you are a diabetic patient please consult your physician before taking these supplements. Your dosage of blood sugar lowering drugs or insulin may be altered by an intake of Glucosamine.
  • Studies show that Glucosamine may also interact negatively with Doxorubicin, Etoposide and Teniposide 
  • People with diabetes (Glucosamine may cause insulin to be less effective).
  • People allergic to shellfish should consult a health care professional before taking these supplements.
  • Since the effect of Glucosamine and Chondroitin has not been tested on pregnant and breastfeeding women, they should consult their doctor before taking them.          
  • Glucosamine may exacerbate existing asthma in some patients.

Safety concerns

  • People with diabetes (Glucosamine may cause insulin to be less effective).
  • People allergic to shellfish should consult a health care professional before taking these supplements.
  • Since the effect of Glucosamine and Chondroitin has not been tested on pregnant and breastfeeding women, they should consult their doctor before taking them.
  • Glucosamine may exacerbate existing asthma in some patients.

Things to note

  • Glucosamine and Chondroitin may cause gastrointestinal upset if taken on an empty stomach.
  • Always consult your physician before beginning your supplementation program.
  • These supplements are not to be used by persons under the age of 18.
