Glucosamine

What are the benefits?

Glucosamine is produced naturally in the body from glucose and glutamic acid. Its role is to help maintain healthy joints by supporting the body’s ability to generate and regenerate cartilage - the connective tissue which is necessary for joint movement. Glucosamine provides joints with the building blocks they need to repair damage caused by ageing or sports injuries. It is also involved in the formation of nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones, ligaments and heart valves.
