Cartilage plays an important role in the joints, ensuring that they move smoothly and without discomfort, and acting as a shock absorber that enables them to withstand the heavy loads we place on them.
As we get older, our ability to restore and build healthy cartilage declines. As a consequence, our joints become susceptible to wear and tear and may undergo degenerative changes, resulting in decreased mobility, stiffness and discomfort.
Glucosamine is a natural component of the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid, and is a major building block of the substances that, together with protein, form the structural units of cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecans, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring structural component of the human body, but our ability to manufacture it declines as we get older, so taking glucosamine supplements may help to maintain optimal levels of this important compound.
Omega-3 fatty acids like those found in Blackmores Glucosamine + Fish Oil are used in the production of leukotrienes and prostaglandins compounds that are important in the bodys processes for dealing with inflammation and swelling in the joints and other tissues. In this way, they support healthy joint function, flexibility and mobility.
Fish oil also supports a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to maintain appropriate levels of triglycerides (fats) in the blood, and by helping to maintain appropriate blood viscosity (thickness).
