I am a big fan and user of glucosamine. Our bodies need glucosamine to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues. After years of running, my joints were a mess! I’ve also torn my MCL (medial collateral ligament), had a small tear in a hip joint, and synovitis in my ankle among other things. Being against invasive procedures for repairing soft tissue injuries, I turned to glucosamine. My doctor did not agree with my decision!
Glucosamine can benefit you if you are an athlete or bodybuilder. If you run or lift weights, you may have a tendency to overuse some joints in your body, which can lead to problems. Glucosamine can help protect the cartilage around your joints.
Gluscosamine helped to resolve the problems I had resulting from activity injuries. It took time but I was able to avoid surgery. The FDA has not approved this supplement for any medical use but I take it anyway because it works.
Our own body’s natural glucosamine is used to make and repair joint cartilage. Taking glucosamine is thought to help repair damaged cartilage by augmenting the body’s supply of glucosamine.
Collagen Type II, another supplement, is necessary for the successful maintenance of healthy cartilage, tendons, ligament and skin. As we age, we lose this necessary protein. This loss can lead to joint degeneration, synovial (joint) fluid loss and dramatic skin changes.
I decided to take the Collagen Type II supplement in addition to Glucosomine. What a nice surprise after a few weeks when I discovered my skin was softer and was not as dry as before.
I was delighted to finally find a good supplement that already combines the Gluscosamine and Collagen Type II. Let’s review: Glucosomine provides ingredients that support joints and Collagen Type II helps to maintain joints with an added bonus of supporting skin health, skin appearance and elasticity by helping the skin retain moisture.
You will pay between $20 and $30 for a one-month supply of Glucosomine with Collagen II. I found my Joint Support Super Formula at Team Beachbody. The cost is $22.95 plus $4.95 shipping. I have also purchased variations of Collagen II products from other Internet stores and local stores that cost far more.
