Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate Shown in Studies to Support Healthy Cartilage Growth

Glucosamine has gotten some bad press lately, but you need to separate fact from fiction.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are not good anti-inflammatories or pain relievers but  excellent joint nutrients that  support healthy cartilage growth.

Yes despite what your doctor believes ( and he or she is 50 years out of date), the fact is cartilage does grow and regenerate constantly.

Here’s another study showing glucosamine and chondroitin remarkable healthy cartilage growth effect.

A preliminary study of the effects of glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin sulphate on surgically treated and untreated focal cartilage damage.

Kamarul T, Ab-Rahim S, Tumin M, Selvaratnam L, Ahmad TS.

The improved regeneration of these repair sites was also noted to be significant over time (6 months vs. 3 months) and in GS and GS+CS groups compared to the untreated (without pharmacotherapy) group.

Combination of ACI and pharmacotherapy (with glucosamine sulphate alone/ or with chondroitin sulphate) may prove beneficial for healing of damaged cartilage, particularly in relation to focal cartilage defects.

Dr. Paul’s Comments –  If you want healthy cartilage take at least 1500mg of Glucosamine a day along with 1200 mg of Chondroitin.
