Glucosamine Supplements

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 Info

We need glucosamine primarily for the healthy structure, strength and shock absorbing functions of our joint health. Although glucosamine is produced by our bodies, our capacity to do this diminishes with age.

Glucosamine Benefits

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

  • Works, but only to some extent

    star

    For me I found these better than the joint care pills that I had been taking, but they have not alleviated the pain in my elbows completely. It has helped, but I can stop taking them and it feels worse after a few days, so retaking them brings the pain down a bit more, but was hoping they would alleviate it. Might be time to try something else. Everyone is different and for me, not such a great outcome.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I would thoroughly recommend this product. Our poor lab has had various problems with two of her legs. She has been on this and I can guarantee that it helps. She had become rather lame. But after a few weeks of taking this she started prancing around like a show pony. One container last her over three months. It's a far better and safer option as opposed to the injections the vet wanted her to have.

  • Good Health Joint Zone

    star

    I have been trialing this product for a knee injury I had a number of months ago. It seems to be working, but not completely sure, as it may be too soon to tell as I have only been using this product for a short while. The stiffness and pain is not getting worse, so this is a good thing! Fantastic delivery service as always with HealthPost. Many thanks.
