Glucosamine for heart

Earlier studies found glucosamine protects against inflammation, a factor in heart and circulatory conditions.

In this large study, doctors followed 366,039 people for seven years and found, compared to those who did not take glucosamine, those who took glucosamine were 15 percent less likely to have any heart or circulatory event and were up to 22 percent less prone to stroke and death.

Smokers who took glucosamine were 37 percent less likely to have heart disease than smokers who did not. Discussing the findings, doctors said glucosamine reduced C-reactive protein, an inflammatory factor in heart and circulatory conditions, which is also elevated in smokers.
