Why Glucosamine Sulphate?
Glucosamine is a naturally ocurring amino sugar found in glycosaminoglycans, integral components of the proteoglycans found in joint cartilage. Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate-rich structures that provide resiliency, load distribution, shock – absorbing, compressive and lubricating – properties to joints and connective tissues.
The availability of Glucosamine is an important part of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that are necessary during the constant remodelling that aging cartilage undergoes.
Thus the maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced deposition of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Dietary glucosamine serves as an immediate precursor for glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and also stimulates incorporation of other precursors into the connective tissue matrix. Bioavailibility of glucosamine sulphate is excellent, it is absorbed intact and utilised very quickly by all tissues, including connective tissues.
Glucosamine sulphate 1500mg daily, is a well-recognised, highly effective source of glucosamine for joint maintenance and healing.
Glucosamine conforts, protects and lubricates joints, creating more cartilage building blocks for repair.
Glucosamine Sulphate plays an important role in the formation of nails, skin, eyes, bones, ligaments, cartilage and tendons.
