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.

  • Great stuff!

    My dog and I both used this, it made a big difference to me being able to compete in the Buller half marathon - walk, and helped my dog keep active until she ran out of puff at 16 years old! I read how taking it in liquid form is a more efficient way for the body to absorb compared to tablets and it was easy to add to my dogs food rather than trying to get her to take tablets. I certainly noticed a difference in my dog if I was a bit slow getting a replacement bottle delivered. We used about one bottle per month.

    An excellent combination of ingredients which has proved to be more beneficial for my arthritis than other glucosamine products I have tried in the past.
