Are you suffering from joint pain or stiffness? Vitabase is pleased to bring you an affordable, yet effective solution that can help you.

In recent years two naturally occurring supplements—glucosamine and chondroitin—have become increasingly popular as the product of choice for many people. Both of these substances are found naturally in the human body. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage; chondroitin is a carbohydrate that promotes elasticity and prevents other enzymes from degrading joint cartilage. There are many published studies that reported some pain relief obtained from glucosamine and chondroitin. Some research also indicates that the supplements might be able to slow down the rate of further cartilage damage. But the really great news is that no study has so far found any serious side effects from either of these natural products.

Some of the research findings have been criticized as possibly having bias or for not being conducted over a long enough period. Conservative bodies such as the Arthritis Foundation have cautiously advised sufferers of osteoarthritis to try the supplements for themselves as there is very little risk and they may well provide the pain relief they desire.
