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

  • Glucosamine

    star

    I think it might be too soon to see if it is helping yet. Certainly easy to give to Buffy, my cat, I just mix it into her wet food first thing each morning and she eats it all up. She certainly appears happy enough. Would like to wait another couple of weeks to see if her stiffness has improved. She definitely hasn't got any worse.

  • Glucosamine For Cats & Dogs

    star

    This powder is so much easier to give than pills, just mix it in their food. No more half chewed slimey pills left in the bowl. After a week or so of taking this, our 11 yr old dog has been feeling and looking much happier running around playing , with no limping around after playing like before. We will definitely keep purchasing this product.
