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.

    Glucosamine For Dogs

    Never again!

    I purchased this product on the advice of a friend for my 8yr old purebred maltese Tammy. (She used to be on Pet Vel). She was OK for 10 days, and seemed to not be occasionally limping so much, then suddenly she became incontinent early in the morning. (going twice inside when she has NEVER done this before). After a couple of days, I wondered if the BioBalance was the problem as she was otherwise healthy and cheerful. So I stopped giving it to her - immediately the incontinence stopped. I challenged again after a a couple of days - same problem so this confirmed to me that BioBalance was the problem. Very disappointed as I am on a very limited income. I have now changed to My Beau Senior so hoping for a better result! Would be VERY loathe to recommend to anyone, especially with an older pet.

    a fabulous product, the only glucosamine capsule that my 97 year old mother can swallow and it contains the added fish oil as well, less pills for her to cope with.

    this is a great product and I was so pleased to find an easy to swallow capsule that was Triple action so less pills for my 97 year mother to cope with.
