Hi, my name is Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. Today. I'd like to tell you a little bit about Glucosamine, which you may know about because you might have taken it for joints or arthritis. Glucosamine has been regularly used for joints and certainly people report benefit for mobility and reduction of pain and I've used it myself. Interestingly, a group of researchers in the United Kingdom have looked at some pool data and started to ask the question "Could it be the case that Glucosamine reduces cardiovascular events?" Well, there's a suggestion from that pool data that that is the case, and speculation that that might be related to the anti-inflammatory response that Glucosamine may cause within the individual. Really interesting topic. So chance to take something for your joints and potentially for your heart at the same time.
If you're after a bit more informational then I've done a podcast on the very topic. Check out the link below and have a listen. Till next time. Take care and bye for now.
