Joints are made of durable material, intended to support your body's movement over the course of a lifetime. Glucosamine is a compound that helps with the production of cartilage, which keeps joints functioning smoothly. Your body produces glucosamine naturally, but levels of production decline with age. Taking glucosamine may supports the health of joints and cartilage, promote nutrients that help lubrication for joint comfort and stimulate the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, which is important for tissue growth, regeneration and wound healing.** It may take several weeks to months for you to notice the beneficial effects of glucosamine tablets, as the nutrient builds in your system. Be sure to look for glucosamine products on Vitacost.com that combine glucosamine with other joint-health supporting nutrients such as chondroitin and MSM.
