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.

    Trying to maintain joint mobility as I age. Generally take one a day. Shoulders seem to be less noisy when rotating , hopefully my knees will follow suit

  • Excellent product

    star

    Experiencing grinding knee pains at 26 years old was slightly worrying, so I decided to try this product. I’ve been taking the capsules for less than two weeks now and they’re definitely working. I experience little to no pain in my knees when crouching down. After forgetting to take them one morning, I was feeling it by midday, confirming that they’re definitely working for me.

    star

    Perhaps I had hoped for a miracle, but all I was seeking was to reduce my anti-inflammatory medication and maybe even experience a reduction in pain. Sadly these capsules have not made any difference after one month. I will keep taking for three months in case benefits are yet to happen.
