Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are made by the body and are partners in the process of cartilage regeneration, supporting joint flexibility and promoting healthy joints. This duo has been used together for joint health promotion in Europe for more than a decade, with studies showing benefit from oral supplementation.
Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are partners in the process of cartilage regeneration, supporting joint flexibility and promoting healthy joints. This duo has been used together for joint health promotion world wide for more than a decade.
This complete formula provides 1.5 grams (1500 mg) of glucosamine sulfate and 1.5 g (1500 mg) of chondroitin sulfate combined with the essential nutrients also found in joint components such as 300 mg of vitamin C, calcium (105 mg) as well as manganese (3 mg).
16 million men and women in the United States are at risk for joint health associated with the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. These commonly occur in the knees, hips and spine, often as cartilage becomes stiff and loses its elasticity and over time can wear in some areas. As cartilage wears away, tendons and ligaments stretch. If the condition worsens bones can actually rub together. Traditional therapies for joints generally do not heal the problem but simply provide temporary relief and often lead to increased joint degradation, so a natural support for joint health comes with great need and excitement. Research shows that glucosamine and chondroitin are partners in the process of regenerating...Full Details
Glucosamine is found naturally in most foods and is a building block of joint tissue. Glucosamine is a combination of glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is used for the formation of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, which are large water binding molecules and important constituents relating to the joint. This product can be a great alternative to traditional therapy for helping to aid in adequate joint health.
Hyaluronic acid (or hyaluronan) is found in highest concentrations in the fluids of the eyes and joints, and in the skin. Hyaluronan is in the glycosaminoglycan family along with chondroitin and glucosamine, and works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues. On average, a 70 kg (154 lb) person has roughly 15 grams of hyaluronan in the body, one-third of which is turned over (degraded and synthesized) every day. Hyaluronan is an...Full Details
