Were you looking for information about Glucosamine? Glycosamine is a common misspelling of glucosamine.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar naturally found in the human body. It is also available in the form of a dietary supplement and can be derived from the shells of crabs, lobsters, and shrimp. The supplement is believed to be effective for the treatment of arthritis by reducing inflammation and decreasing the production of the compounds that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine is probably safe for many people when used appropriately, but you should talk to your healthcare provider before taking it if you have asthma or diabetes.
