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

  • Do not use if migraine prone.

    star

    Migraines and headaches plagued my life until I removed gluten from my diet. After more than 10 years free from any headaches or migraines I had a migraine on the third day after starting to use this product. It seems the MSM was most likely the problem as it has a noted side effect of causing migraines, especially in those who are migraine prone. Taking a glucosamine product without the MSM has not caused any problems for myself. The MSM component of this product seems to be a high risk substance for any one who has ever had a migraine problem as noted elsewhere on the internet.

  • Unbelievable!

    star

    I have/had a number of joint issues brought about by old age, menopause and overuse of my smartphone (DeQuervain’s tendonitis).

    After a recommendation to include glucosamine chondroitin in my diet I reached for these supplements. Within a day of starting these supplements there was a noticeable difference in my pain levels and mobility; within a week there was a significant difference; and after 3 weeks the pain is gone and I have complete mobility again :-)

    I have been taking 1-a-day as opposed to the instructions of 2-a-day. I am worried that I may rebound if I stop taking these! I would highly recommend them to those with similar issues.

  • Great stuff.

    star

    I have been taking this for 10 years now. I was told I would need hip replacement ops in 1 to 5 years. Since taking this my hips have improved but if I miss it for 5 days or more I do get pain. I really recommend this product.
