I recently tore my meniscus (cartilage inside my knee) so I will be talking about rehabilitating the knees.

 

One supplement I will be taking advantage of is Glucosamine to help repair the damage and to counterbalance the effects of any non-steroidal

anti-inflammatories I may take. Below Is a small account of Glucosamine.

 

Glucosamine

 

What is it?

 

Glucosamine is from shark cartilage, tracheal cartilage and is produced in the body from glucose. Supplements are glucosamine sulphate and hydrochloride.

 

What it does

 

It helps build

  • cell membrane

  • collagen

  • osteoid of bone matrix

  • cartilage

It Helps with 

  • the formation of body mucous secretions (think gut lining)

  • metabolism

  • liver detoxification

It's an anti-inflammatory and decreases swelling

 

What it helps

 

  • Arthritis

  • Back pain

  • Cartilage degeneration

  • Gastric ulceration

  • Joint pain (bets mixed with omega 3 fatty acid, chondroitin sulphate and Manganese ascorbate)

  • Postmenopausal osteoporosis

  • Ulcerative colitis

 

Drug Interactions

 

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories inhibit glucosamine production. It may potentiate the anticoagulant effects of warfarin.

 

Warning-Shellfish allergies or asthma and diabetes medication and warfarin.
