Researchers Reveal Glucosamine As A Potential Natural Remedy For Multiple Sclerosis

Glucosamine is naturally produced by the human body, and it plays a significant role in cartilage health. It is even consumed by individuals with arthritis conditions, such as osteoarthritis, just to improve their overall condition. However, it appears that the use of glucosamine has many more health benefits.

Researchers reveal glucosamine as a potential natural remedy for multiple sclerosis. This disease develops when the immune system accidentally attacks itself and it results in damage in the spinal cord and brain. According to the Penn State College of Medicine, there are approximately 400,000 individuals in the United States who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

“Multiple sclerosis causes certain symptoms, such as in the face or tongue,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

According to the scientists at the University of California, they found that glucosamine has the effect of suppressing the autoimmune response that is damaging and usually occurs in multiple sclerosis. This is something that would give hope to multiple sclerosis sufferers.

Dr. Michael Demetriou and his colleagues from The Journal of Biological Chemistry explain that glucosamine inhibits the growth as well as the function of the abnormal T-cells. These cells make the immune system of sufferers attack the central nervous system tissue, which insulates nerves. In an animal-based clinical test, it was found that glucosamine suppressed the T-cells in mice.

Glucosamine is an excellent dietary supplement that can be a part of one’s diet. It has been widely studied due to its potential positive effects on a wide range of health conditions. It is widely available in a form of supplement pill and is used by millions of people from around the world.

A team of researchers from the Jefferson Medical College revealed that in an animal experiment, glucosamine has aided the delay of the onset of multiple sclerosis symptoms. They also found that the natural ingredient has helped improve the ability of the mice to move and walk.

There have been many studies that found glucosamine could have strong healing potential for conditions that affect both animals and humans. Many people, particularly those that suffer from conditions such as arthritis, have reported that they have experienced significant improvements in their pain and mobility while using glucosamine.

Since there are many glucosamine products available nowadays, experts recommend that consumers take precautions in choosing a product. The best glucosamine supplements on the market are those that come from a reputable company and that contain other natural, therapeutic ingredients such as MSM, chondroitin and turmeric (
