Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in glycosaminoglycans, integral components of the proteoglycans found in joint cartilage. 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 the incorporation of other precursors into the connective tissue matrix. Glucosamine sulfate is a well-recognized, highly effective source of glucosamine for glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues. Glucosamine sulfate helps to protect against the deterioration of cartilage and relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine + MSM Forte™ also provides methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), red wine proanthocyanidins and bromelain. Vitamin C is also included as it is essential for the synthesis of connective tissue.
