Glucosamine is a substance that naturally occurs in the body from glucose (sugar) and glutamine (amino acid). It contributes to the formation of joint building blocks (glycosaminoglycans) that is needed to make cartilage, tendons, ligaments and joint fluids. However, with old age the production of glucosamine can deteriorate leaving the joints to become stiff, which is why the body needs to stay topped up with this substance. Usually glucosamine capsules are derived from shellfish but the vegetarian alternative is made up of minerals and plant life.
Promotes healthy joints- By topping the body up with glucosamine, which is found to naturally form in the body, it helps to repair tissues, suppress inflammation and the break down of cartilage
Supports healthy joints - Due to the decline of glucosamine being naturally produced in the body as a person gets older it can result in their joints being affected. Glucosamine is one of the main joint building blocks, which can help to ease symptoms of achy joints, stiffness, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and sport related joint injuries.

What is Glucosamine used for?
Glucosamine Sulphate is a commonly prescribed medication for patients with joint problems. Patients with arthritis and more particularly, osteoarthritis use this supplement.
Glucosamine Sulphate occurs naturally in the fluid around the joints and in our bodies. This fluid known as synovial fluid is instrumental in the prevention of friction between bone-joints. It cushions the joints from external impacts. Glucosamine Sulphate occurs naturally in shellfish and is presently produced in laboratories.
Glucosamine Sulphate as a supplement has been studied at length and the conclusion of these studies reveal that the effectiveness of the supplement is directly linked to its quality and dosage. Insufficient dosages and quality will not help patients with joint problems or the effectiveness is minimal.
How does Vegetarian Glucosamine work?
This naturally occurring substance helps the body across a wide range of functions. Glucosamine Sulphate is a primary agent in the building of cartilage, tendons, ligaments and the production of Synovial fluid around joints.
In a healthy body joints are encased in cartilage and cushioned by Synovial fluid. The most common complaints of sufferers of osteoarthritis are pain, stiffness and friction in the joints due to the break down and thinning of cartilage. Glucosamine supplement is used to alleviate these complaints by preventing the breakdown of both cartilage and Synovial fluid and increasing their quantities and thereby lessening the friction surrounding joints.
According to researchers, the ‘sulphate’ contained in Glucosamine Sulphate plays a vital role in the continued building of cartilage. Their final conclusion is that out of all forms of Glucosamine, Glucosamine Sulphate is by far the most effective as a supplement.
