Glucosamine Info

Glucosamine is a natural constituent of healthy cartilage and synovial fluid in the joints of the body. It is derived from glucose and the amino acid glutamine, and as we age we tend to produce less. Our bodies use glucosamine to build and repair cartilage, tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid and other tissues.

Glucosamine Benefits

We need glucosamine primarily for the healthy structure, strength and shock absorbing functions of our joints. Although glucosamine is produced by our bodies, our capacity to do this diminishes with age.

Glucosamine provides the raw material for our bodies to maintain and repair the components critical for healthy joint mobility and function. It is a beneficial therapeutic supplement in osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease of the joints of the body.

Glucosamine Side Effects

Glucosamine sulphate is in a different category to sulphur drugs and sulphate-containing foods, and will not cause a reaction in people with sulphate allergies. Because glucosamine is usually sourced from shellfish shells, people with shellfish allergies should naturally avoid these products. A vegetarian supplement is available (manufactured using no animal product). People with unstable blood sugar conditions are advised to consult a health practitioner before taking a glucosamine supplement.

  • Got my mobility back :)

    star

    I regularly walked 6 to 7 Km a day up until I damaged my achilles tendon. After a layoff of 3 to 4 months I started my walks again but hip pain restricted me to walking no more than .5 to 1.5Km. I visited my GP and he told me I would need a hip replacement within 5 years and to restrict me exercise to walking in the swimming pool. This did not appeal so I started to do some research. This led me to Glucosamine & Chondroiton, and keen pricing led me to Healthpost. It's now 9 months since I started taking the product and I now suffer very little hip pain and am back to walking 6 to 7 Km a day again. Strongly recommended.

    I continue to take this produce despite not being very sure as to how much difference it makes, just in case it helps! I think I started taking it too late in life and do believe it would be very helpful if started at around 40years of age, to prevent degeneration rather than trying to correct damage already done.
