Interesting and surprising research suggests you can reduce cardiovascular risk and protect your joints by taking the same substance.
More and more research provides evidence that oxidative stress alters many functions of the endothelium, the inner layer of the blood vessels (Cai H, Harrison DG, 2000). Nitric oxide which opens blood vessels and improves circulation is inactivated by free radicals. This seems to occur in conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking.
The use of glucosamine has been associated with reduced total mortality and a significant decreased risk of death from cancer and with a large risk reduction for death from respiratory diseases (Bell GA, et.al., 2012).
Glucosamine sulfate has for many years been used to support joint cartilage and treat osteoarthritis.
The following study is interesting because the researchers investigated if glucosamine could improve endothelial function (Katoh A, et.al., 2017).They stated that vascular endothelial function is a potent surrogate marker of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular mortality where oxidative stress could be involved. Endothelial function was evaluated using flow mediated dilation and oxidative, antioxidant status was evaluated by measuring the ratio of glutathione to the oxidized form of glutathione.
The results showed that glucosamine administration improved endothelial function and the ratio of glutathione to the oxidized form of glutathione. According to this research by reducing oxidative stress, the vascular function improved. What if you could take both glucosamine and an effective form of glutathione? It looks like that would be even more effective.
The patented form of S-Acetyl Glutathione is an effective form of glutathione shown to enter the cell.

You may know that you need calcium, but maybe you have heard that taking calcium may cause calcification of blood vessels.
Taking calcium by itself is not a good idea. You need to take calcium in a formula that includes multiple nutrients, and it needs to include magnesium. Thatâ€™s one of the reasons the BMJ contains a large amount of magnesium in a very well absorbed form.
