Further information about Natures Aid Glucosamine 500mg, MSM 500mg + Chondroitin 100mg

The Ancient Greeks were aware of the health values of sulphur and used sulphur fumes from garlic to treat many different conditions. Sulphur has also been known by the name Brimstone for many years. Although sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body, and can be found in almost every cell, it is only in recent times that we have begun to rediscover the importance of sulphur. Recent interest in sulphur has been stimulated by its use in the form of methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) on horses. MSM is a naturally occurring organic sulphur compound found in all living plant and animal tissues. MSM is easily destroyed by food processing and this in combination with the fact that sulphur is continually excreted by the body point to the possibility that supplementation may be beneficial.

The main component of ligaments, tendons, cartilages and spinal discs is collagen which is the most abundant protein found in mammals, with its purpose being to actually connect cells together. The name collagen is derived from Greek and means to "produce glue". The tissues mentioned above are also rich in proteoglycans which are 95% glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and 5% protein. These GAGs act as a framework for collagen to mould onto and consequently are responsible with collagen for continuously building and rebuilding ligaments, tendons, cartilages and spinal discs. The major precursor in GAG production is glucosamine which is produced in the body from glucose and glutamine. The production of glucosamine which is the rate limiting step and hence supplementation, especially after tissue injury, helps the body to speed up synthesis of GAGs and consequently new connective tissue.

The Benefits of MSM and Glucosamine
Joint Health - sulphur is important in the formation of collagen and glucosamine and therefore in the maintenance of healthy bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. Sulphur helps nutrients and fluids to flow through cells by increasing permeability which also aids in the removal of toxins leading to a reduction in pain and inflammation. Glucosamine has helped a number of joint related problems including degeneration, swelling, inflammation, sciatica, recuperation from operations or injuries, osteoarthritis and slipped discs.
Allergy - a direct relationship between the amount of MSM present in the body and resistance to allergens has been established. In many people this has led to a substantial or even a complete relief of symptoms.
Hair, Skin and Nail Health - sulphur is required for the production of keratin and collagen, important constituents of hair, skin and nails, and is therefore important in the maintenance and repair of these components.
Blood Sugar Regulation - sulphur is required to produce insulin. MSM also makes cells more permeable allowing them to absorb blood sugar.
Antiparasitic Action - MSM has been shown to have antiparasitic action against many common parasites including intestinal worms.
Digestive System -MSM promotes digestion and the absorption of nutrients enabling us to utilise the food we eat.
Eye Health - Glucosamine has helped in the condition uveitis which is an inflammatory disease of the iris and focusing muscle. It is also useful in preventing changes in the vitreous humour (substance within the eye) and thus protecting the retina from release.
Other -discoveries about the benefits of MSM continue to be made including stress relief, mental alertness, lung health, oral health, relief from insect bites and even helping with snoring.
Properties
MSM - is a rich naturally occurring source of sulphur which is required for the structure and function of 150 compounds within the body, including tissues, enzymes, hormones, antibodies and antioxidants. The properties of sulphur are obviously too numerous to list but it is present in the following compounds:
Glutathione - an antioxidant responsible for neutralising free radicals and also for the removal of toxic substances from the liver.
Lipoic Acid - a potent antioxidant and vitamin like substance that enhances the antioxidant vitamins C and E as well as glutathione. It also plays an important role in energy production, glucose balance and the detoxifying functions of the liver.
Coenzyme A - plays an important role in the oxidation and synthesis of fatty acids and the synthesis of cholesterol and therefore vitamin D, bile and the steroid hormones. It is also important in making red blood cells and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Fibrinogen - a very important clotting agent found in blood.
