Glucosamine is a natural sugar produced by the body and it’s vital for building, repairing and maintaining healthy cartilage. Cartilage is the tough, rubbery connective padding found at the end of long bones where they meet joints. Cartilage becomes less flexible as we age and as it eventually degenerates, it leaves joints unprotected. Glucosamine can help maintain healthy cartilage and prevent joints from rubbing against one another, becoming stiff and less functional, and leading to pain and discomfort.
Many athletes take Glucosamine to help keep knee cartilage in good repair.
