Solo Nutrition Glucosamine Sulphate plus MSMGlucosamine is not new to the market. It occurs naturally in our bodies in and around the joints and connective tissue. Glucosamine sulphate is the preferred choice for relief of joint pain and arthritis. The body readily uses it, 95% is absorbed through the Intestines. After absorption it travels to joint tissues, where it is incorporated into the connective tissue matrix of cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Many athletes and sports people take glucosamine; this can help prevent muscle injuries. Taken long term Glucosamine appears to be very safe. It may not bring quick relief, but generally starts working between two and four weeks. Best taken with meals. M.S.M. is a rich source of organic sulphur, used to build amino acids, which are critical to healthy connective tissue and cartilage.
Together a useful combination for healthy joints. With added vitamin B5. A recent study by the B.M.A. (British Medical Association) found that severe stress contributed to joint pain, and arthritis. Vitamin B5 can alleviate stress, as it is known as the 'anti-stress' vitamin. The cortisone hormone, produced by the adrenal glands, needs vitamin B5 for its production. We have also added a high level of selenium, an essential trace mineral. Selenium is a very important key antioxidant. Selenium helps the body produce anti-inflammatory prostaglandin's (hormone-like substances).
Some rheumatoid arthritis sufferers may find taking extra selenium helpful.
