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

  • Wonderful Product

    I have been taking the Glucosamine with Chondroitin for a month now and cannot believe how much easier I am getting up and down stairs, even in heels. Before taking the tablet stairs where taken one at a time and quite slowly especially going down as it was quite painful, now I don't even think about it, I'm taking stairs like I was 10+ years ago.

  • Excellent progress

    My 14 yo Blue Heeler is very arthritic - and has suffered a serious rear knee injury in the past. She became quite lame and was obviously suffereing when I walked her, always keen for the walk but struggling at the end of 2km. I put her on Glucosamine for Dogs and she seems to be able to sustain her walking much better now. Over the last two years I have been using Glucosamine her progress has dropped from about 3kph to about 2kph (but that is age) - her majestic progress is slow and steady, without the limp which was previously obvious by the end of her walk. Very pleased with the outcome
