Glucosamine Supplements

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 Info

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

Glucosamine Benefits

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.

    Actually bought for my husband who was "non-compliant" so I thought I'd take them. Over 50 with osteo in my knees and all the usual aches and pains. Without me noticing the knee pain has completely gone. I rolled my ankle and sprained it badly- was healing well - I ran out of these and ankle has started hurting again . Swear by them. Have ordered 2nd lot. Husband still not a believer :)

    I normally have no trouble swallowing tablets, but these tablet are huge and more often than not stick in my throat. Not pleasant!

    Great product. Had our large 10 year old Huntaway on the hidiously expensive vet biscuits for about six monthto help with joint issues, results were not great, a small but hard to measure improvement. After a month on this PetBalance product we had noticed a marked improvemnt, not a new dog by any means but certainly much happier and more active. (Glucosamine had a similar impact on me. Lol). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
