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 supplement!

    We have been giving our two older dogs, 14 year old Lab/Dalmatian and 11 year old Huntaway, the glucosamine for about a month.
    Their mobility has improved immensely and the older girl, who has been really struggling, can now keep up on walks, plays with the younger
    dogs and has regained her confidence to do all the things she used to when she was younger. Fantastic!

  • Nutra-Lige Joint Care

    After taking glucosamine for several years, I stopped when I read that Swiss research had shown it not to be effective. A couple of months later I noticed that my hips would sometimes ache so I started taking it again. Haven't had the pains since so despite what the study showed, it works for me
