Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center

    1. Sports Injuries & Secondary Arthritis
    For anyone involved in sports activities, injuries are a way of life. It doesn't matter if you engage in these activities professionally or for recreation, you are at risk all the time.
    2. Arthritis in Pets
    Osteoarthritis is a chronic, slowly progressing condition that is caused by the breakdown and destruction of your pet's cartilage. As that occurs, the bony structures begin to rub against one another causing pain and discomfort.
    3. What Are NSAIDs?
    If you suffer from arthritis, you will be familiar with NSAIDS. They have become a part of American life. Some examples are Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Excedrin, and Motrin just to name a few. They are a favorite of doctors when prescribing pain relief for osteoarthritis.

Glucosamine as a cosmetic?

By J. R. Rogers

I was reading a very interesting article last week and I wanted to share it with you. As most of you know, I have been involved the arthritis business for many years and it seems I never stop learning new things.

Where We all Began

I have been writing these Chronicles for years to share with you the benefits of using a high-quality liquid Glucosamine when you are dealing with arthritis. Based on our experience, you have listened. We know this because you have been kind enough to share your experiences with us. But, this is a new one on me.

Researchers and New Findings

As we age, our skin loses both "tone" and we also develop age spots (Generally, this means an uneven application of pigmentation in the skin). Now, a recent study showed that the topical application of Glucosamine appears to halt the formation of age spots and it assists in fading them.

This is an interesting situation. These findings were announced at An International on Glucosamine Skin Benefits. As well, there were some leading dermatologists who were involved in this study including some from a very large U.S. company.

Frankly, the Real Issue for Me is in Joint Health

I think that any new findings like this are very positive and of course, it opens up new avenues of interest in this incredible compound. Glucosamine has been a life-saver for me (for those who know my story) and if you gain some skin benefits from using it than this is great.

As noted, this study apparently involved the topical application of Glucosamine and it will be interesting to see if new products begin to appear that target this specific kind of use. Namely, as a cosmetic application.

While we all resist the aging process I still place the greatest benefits on joint care. After all, there is nothing more debilitating than living with joint pain that is chronic and persistent. Fortunately, we have a product that deals with this issue very well.

What Glucosamine Does for Your Joints

I have said this many times before but let's review it again. Not only does Glucosamine have the ability to knock out joint pain, it also assists in rehabilitating damaged cartilage. For me, joint care means more than getting rid of pain. It also means keeping my cartilage healthy.

With the now-recognized risks of using prescription arthritis pain medications as well as many over-the-counter remedies, it is without a doubt the safest compound of its kind and many years of studies reach the same conclusion.


We all want to look good as we age. However, I think it is more important in the overall picture to "feel good."

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
