What is Glucosamine?*
Glucosamine, 2-amino-2-deoxy-d-glucose, is an amino monosaccharide that is an essential component of mucopolysaccharides and chitin. Glycosaminoglycans (mucopolysaccharides) are large complexes of negatively-charged carbohydrate chains that are incorporated into mucous secretions, connective tissue, skin, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It is a structural component of Keratin Sulfate (a disaccharide of which Glucosamine sulfate is one of the monosaccharides) and Hyaluronic acid, which is a repeated chain of glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. Glucosamine and its acetylated derivative, N-acetylglucosamine, are readily synthesized in the body from glucose.*
Why Take Glucosamine Supplements?*
Supplements serve as a convenient option for anyone looking to improve the joint health and get rid of knee pain due to osteoarthritis. Daily intake of 1500 mg is the most widely recommended dose, however up to 3g daily may be taken for additional benefits. Although, to supplement glucosamine, take 300 – 500 mg, three times a day, for a total daily dose of 900 – 1,500 mg. *
Glucosamine sulphate salts are the best way to supplement glucosamine, with glucosamine sulphate as a close second.* Glucosamine hydrochloride is ineffective.*
N-Acetyl glucosamine is not glucosamine and should be considered a different supplement. Glucosamine should be supplemented alongside food.*
What are the Side Effects of Glucosamine Ingestion?
- Although there does not appear to be a large adverse interaction between glucosamine and diabetes (some schools of thought believe that glucosamine induces insulin resistance, which doesn't appear to be that reliable in humans after oral ingestion) it still seems to be prudent to ask a medical doctor about using glucosamine if one is pre-diabetic or diabetic.*
