Overview
Glucosamine and MSM are supplements that work together to promote healthy joints. Glucosamine provides the raw materials needed by the body to manufacture cartilage. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) has potential therapeutic applications to support healthy inflammatory response and healthy joint function. Recent studies have shown positive effects of Glucosamine and MSM preparations to support healthy joint function. Glucosamine Sulfate is the form best absorbed by the body and the most commonly used form in dietary supplements today.

Our Glucosamine with MSM is available in 90 count capsules.

Glucosamine Sulfate
Glucosamine Sulfate is the form best absorbed by the body and the one most commonly used to promote joint health. 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 provides 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 over time it may be more effective, 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.

  • In rare cases mild digestive distress has been reported by those taking Glucosamine Sulfate, taking with a meal typically alleviates this response.
MSM
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural sulfur-containing compound that is produced in the human body. MSM may support healthy inflammatory response and is thought to be a natural pain reliever. Although MSM occurs naturally in foods, even moderate food processing destroys most of it. Plants, animals, and humans need sulfur for a wide variety of biological processes. MSM is a source of biological sulfur, which is a major component in many of the body's proteins, tissues, hormones and enzymes. Sulfur also plays a role in the detoxification of the liver.

Our MSM is a non-animal-based nutritional supplement derived from pine trees. Unlike most forms of MSM, which are synthetic, we source an all-natural form of MSM.
