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.

    Smooths movement, reduces pain in knees. I could note more comfort within a few days! On occasion I forget to take glucosamine and I can tell the difference within two days. My husband is not one to use supplements, but he tried my glucosamine tablets and now swears by them!

    These tablets are the only ones that have help with my knee pain.
    I've tried other brands with no luck

    Bought for my daughter who had broken a toe some months before and was still in pain. She has already found these supplements helpful and I'm hoping they will speed up her recovery. Aged 67 I have used Glucosamine an Chondroitin for some time and believe they help me maintain an active life and quicker recovery when I 'overdo' the activities.
