In case you need regular exercise to protect joints from injuries.

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring element that is very useful for the health of the joints and helps to repair joints. It stimulates the body to produce mucopolysaccharides found in cartilage. Being tested in the laboratory, glucosamine is absorbed 98%, because the molecules are small and simple and penetrate cartilage and stimulate the production of proteins needed to maintain the joints healthy. It has been shown that 1,500 mg of glucosamine per day, administered for 4 weeks is more effective than treatment with ibuprofen.
Side effects that may occur after using glucosamine are gastrointestinal, but those suffering from ulcer or using diuretics are more likely.
Chondroitin sulfate is a chain of repeating molecules that are called mucopolysaccharides. Chondroitin is a component of cartilage, which gives them structure, maintains water and other nutrients and creates the optimal environment for the movement of other molecules through cartilage. This is an important property since it does not contain blood vessels.
