Combining Glucosamine and Omega-3 Fatty Acids to decrease pain and stiffness from Arthritis
Posted Jun 09 2010 12:00am
Osteoarthritis is basically a combination of the wearing of the cartilage and synovial fluid in between bones that make up a joint… and… inflammation.
Glucosamine is one of the building blocks of cartilage and synovial fluid and can help maintain and boost cartilage repair.
Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation. Fish oil has been shown to reduce inflammation associated with cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
Now, for the first time, a
study has shown combining the two can reduce the pain and stiffness
associated with osteoarthritis.
German researchers combined 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate with 200 mg of omega-3 fats.
Head researcher Joerg Gruenwald, Ph.D. said, “Omega-3 fatty acids inhibit the inflammation process in OA, whereas glucosamine sulfate further supports the rebuilding of lost cartilage substance.”
