Bone and joint health hinge on proper nutrition; if you are deficient in certain nutrition then your body may be alerting you by sending pain signals. Natural supplements can help the body rejuvenate sore and inflamed areas. Many people who suffer from Runner’s Knee have found that Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate relieve pain and rehabilitate the damage that has occurred. The body naturally produces glucosamine to build tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and synovial fluid which lubricates the joints. Glucosamine Sulfate repairs cartilage, replenishes synovial fluid around the joints, eases pain, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Chondroitin Sulfate eases pain, slows the degeneration of joints, and benefits the repairing process of the joints. Together these two make a powerhouse supplement and protect the remaining cartilage from further damage. Since Glucosamine and Chondroitin are not found in food sources, topical creams or supplements are the only way to absorb this nutrient. In 2003, a study was conducted on a group of people suffering from chronic knee pain. This study was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine and revealed that 88% of the participants that consumed 2,000 mg of a glucosamine supplement had a dramatic decrease in their knee pain.
