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

  • This is the best!

    Some years ago I noticed that the joint at the tip of one of my middle fingers was becoming deformed. I found out from my GP that it was arthritis and he recommended that I take Nutra-Life Joint Care every day. He also told me to take three capsules a day or I would be wasting my money. I started taking the capsules and it stopped the deformity in my finger in its tracks. I have had no problems since and I intend never to stop taking these wonderful capsules.

  • Jointex Triple Action Capsules are making a difference.

    These capsules have certainly helped with easing my joint pain; It did take quite some time for the capsules to make a difference, approx. 2 months, I take two a day.
