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

  • Too big

    My husband refuses to take these - says they are like trying to swallow a brick! They really are far too big but I manage with a big gulp of water. I hope they are worth the effort!

  • Awesome

    My partner says this is the best product for his knee. He has had surgery on it and says it works quickly and very effectively. No discomfort at the end of the day.

  • Nutra-Life Glucosamine 1500 Complex Advanced

    Ive been taking this product for a couple of years now. I find it really good as Ive run out before and can notice when I dont take it that my joints are sore. Im never without it as it really does make a difference. Its a good product once you get used to taking it even though the tablet is large compaired to other similar products.
