Glucosamine Sulfate is an aminopolysaccharide, which is a combination of an amino acid (glutamine) and a sugar (glucose). Glucosamine is produced by the body and produces the raw material for substances that provide the foundation for many of the body's tissues including cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and collagen to mention a few. Glucosamine also supports the health of tissues that make up many of the body's organs. Glucosamine may not work as quickly as pain relieving medications, but it may be more effective over time, this is because medications tend to wear off quickly, but Glucosamine continues to work, sometimes for weeks after the supplements are discontinued. Research indicates that Glucosamine may help to relieve the stiffness, pain, and swelling associated with joint disorders. In a double-blind clinical trial that compared administration of 1200 mg ibuprofen to 1500 mg of Glucosamine Sulfate, test subjects taking Glucosamine Sulfate experienced less pain than those taking ibuprofen. Approximately 70 countries worldwide authorize Glucosamine as a 'treatment' for persons with mild to moderately severe joint disorders.

Glucosamine does not occur in foods that are readily available. Our Glucosamine Sulfate is derived from the processed shells of shrimp, lobster and crab. Glucosamine Sulfate is the form best absorbed by the body and the most commonly used form to support healthy joint function.

Our Glucosamine Sulfate 500mg is available in 90 count capsules.
