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

  • Fantastic for older pets with mobility issues

    star

    Got this the first time and used it until finished, didn't get more any for a week or so, to see if it really was making a difference. And boy had it it been. Our 13yo dog was starting to look stiff in her joints again, got some more and was was better again in a matter of days, don't let it run out now.

    star

    Love the idea of great product at a reasonable price. love the fact that you can get 200 capsules from health post cheaper than the shops.
    I decided to take these tablets after being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in knee.
    Definitely does help with joint mobility and eases the pain.
    I started off with 3 tablets a day and now down to one tablet a day after few months.
    Without these I've problems walking, stiff joints and a lot of pain.
    Definitely worth trying you maybe surprised how good you feel.
    Health post is reliable and very fast with posting, great service, ordered one day on doorstep the following day.
