Glucosamine Info

Glucosamine is a natural constituent of healthy cartilage and synovial fluid in the joints of the body. It is derived from glucose and the amino acid glutamine, and as we age we tend to produce less. Our bodies use glucosamine to build and repair cartilage, tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid and other tissues.

Glucosamine Benefits

We need glucosamine primarily for the healthy structure, strength and shock absorbing functions of our joints. Although glucosamine is produced by our bodies, our capacity to do this diminishes with age.

Glucosamine provides the raw material for our bodies to maintain and repair the components critical for healthy joint mobility and function. It is a beneficial therapeutic supplement in osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease of the joints of the body.

Glucosamine Side Effects

Glucosamine sulphate is in a different category to sulphur drugs and sulphate-containing foods, and will not cause a reaction in people with sulphate allergies. Because glucosamine is usually sourced from shellfish shells, people with shellfish allergies should naturally avoid these products. A vegetarian supplement is available (manufactured using no animal product). People with unstable blood sugar conditions are advised to consult a health practitioner before taking a glucosamine supplement.

Product Reviews

  • Excellent product & easy on the pocket too

    My husband and I have been taking this product for a while now. Noticed that my knee does not creak as much and there's no soreness any more. Granted that my knee problem is not a hugh one but my husband who has arthritis in his finger joints has seen a marked improvement in his....less stiffness and swelling even though it is winter now. Will definitely be continuing my orders for this product.

  • Good price, good results

    Done something to my knee, unsure what though it would hurt walking up stairs, pick stuff up, jumping etc# Been taking this for a few months, one every morning and night, hurts every once an awhile though as as regular as before, good things take time. Add these to stretching and walking. The laying down and elevate your leg and hold is an ideal move.

  • Rouh surface, -hard to swallow

    A good price for an effective product BUT the non smooth surface (unusual these days) of the rather large pills make them very hard to swallow, - and I'm pretty good at swallowing most pills. I rub butter,-or margarine_all over them, and still don't find them easy!.
