Were you looking for information about Glucosamine? Glocosomine is a common misspelling of glucosamine.
Glucosamine, an over-the-counter dietary supplement, is available to treat arthritis. It is derived from the shells of crabs, lobsters, and shrimp, and appears to help reduce inflammation and decrease the production of certain compounds that degrade cartilage. Although early research showed the supplement to be effective for treating arthritis, it is no longer entirely clear whether it really does work for the condition. People with high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma should talk to their healthcare providers before trying any glucosamine products.
