Canada's top selling joint supplements combine glucosamine for cartilage and chondroitin for joint lubrication.
Glucosamine sulfate occurs naturally in the body, but with age and other factors production steadily declines. A factor in the building of healthy cartilage, glucosamine has the ability to protect against the deterioration of cartilage. Supplemental glucosamine helps stimulate the manufacture of glycosamino glycans (GAG), key components of cartilage cell growth. GAG maintain the structure of cartilage, giving it shock-absorbing qualities. Chondroitin sulfate is found naturally in the body as well, specifically in the cartilage that cushions bones, allowing them to move smoothly. When the natural balance of cartilage's components is upset, cartilage dehydrates, becoming thin and deteriorated. This results in compromised mechanical advantage, causing sore, stiff joints with limited movement.Supplemental glucosamine may result in reductions in joint pain, stiffness, tenderness and swelling, as well as increased joint performance. Chondroitin works to keep your cartilage healthy by attracting water into the cartilage, providing it with nutrients and lubrication. It also inhibits excessive cartilage-destroying enzymes.Glucosamine chondroitin double strength from Webber Naturals helps slow the progression of osteoarthritis, maintain structural integrity of joints and connective tissue, and reduce associated pain.
