Joints in the human body
A joint is the place where two bones meet. Joints make the skeleton flexible and make movement of the body possible.
There are a number of different types of joints in the body, including immovable joints, partially movable joints and freely movable joints. Did you know there are between 250 and 350 joints in the human body.
However, the exact number is not known as there is some discussion around what actually makes a joint!
Almost every single move we make needs the help of our joints. Of course, they are involved in running or other exercises, but they are also needed for most things we do.
Bending down to pick something up. Opening a packet of crisps. Brushing your teeth. All of these activities require a little help from the joints, so it is important to look after them.
As we start to get older, the amount of lubricating fluid which is inside the joints starts to decrease and the cartilage itself becomes thinner.
As well as this, ligaments may also become shorter
This might lead to stiff feeling joints. The body’s cartilage begins to thin out and break, which means that the joints need to work harder.
Benefits of glucosamine and glucosamine use
What is glucosamine for? Glucosamine is a building block for the tendons, ligaments and cartilage, as well as being part of the synovial fluid, which surrounds the joints.
The body uses glucosamine to make macromolecules such as glycosaminoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins, all of which are components of joints.
Holland & Barrett MS Glucosamine 1400mg contains additional vitamin C which supports normal collagen formation to support healthy cartilage.
