Glucosamine is a category of products that contain glucosamine, which functions as the basic building block of cartilage and other parts of the musculoskeletal system. It is most often associated with the support of the strength and resilience of the knee joint and also with the elasticity of cartilage.
However, over the course of life and with increasing age, the amount of glucosamine present in the body typically decreases, which can have negative effects on the functioning of your cartilage. Nutrition supplements with glucosamine can help maintain optimum levels of this important substance in your body, and thus help protect your cartilage against premature breakdown. Such supplements are also used for better mobility and protection against joint damage under excessive strain. This makes them ideal for runners, weightlifters, football players and other athletes, as well as individuals with physically demanding job, one-sided workloads, weight distribution imbalances and the elderly.
