Study Finds Glucosamine May Have Cardioprotective Effect


Glucosamine is well known for its joint health properties. Now a new study suggests that it may also have cardioprotective properties.





The researchers used data from the UK Biobank survey, which included 466,039 participants who did not have cardiovascular disease at baseline. The participants completed a questionnaire at the beginning of the study that asked about supplement use. 19% of them said they use glucosamine. They were followed for an average of seven years. The researchers tracked cardiovascular events including cardiovascular disease death, stroke, and coronary heart disease.





The researchers found that glucosamine use was associated with a significantly lower risk of total cardiovascular events, coronary artery disease, and stroke. These findings held after adjusting for age, sex, body mass index, race, lifestyle factors, dietary intakes, drug use, and other supplement use.





The study was conducted by researchers from Tulane University, Harvard University, and Harbin Medical University. It was published May 14, 2019 in The BMJ.
