Glucosamine Promotes Blood Sugar Regulation

Glucosamine is an amino monosaccharide (carbohydrate) marketed to promote joint health and reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis. The body uses glucosamine to make cartilage. British researchers, in a study on rats, found that glucosamine increased the biological availability of insulin, which would help the body regulate blood sugar. Animals fed glucosamine for five days showed decreased blood sugar levels. It is not known whether these results apply to humans. (Drug Design, Development and Therapy 9: 6167, 2015)
