This is one of a number of substances classified as an amino
sugar. Unlike other forms of sugar in the body, amino sugars are
components of carbohydrates that are incorporated into the structure of body
tissues, rather than being used as a source of energy. Glucosamine is thus
involved in the formation of the nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones, ligaments,
and heart valves. It also plays a role in the mucous secretions of the
digestive, respiratory, and urinary tracts.
Glucosamine is made in the body from the simple
carbohydrate glucose and the amino acid glutamine. It is found in high
concentrations in joint structures. It is also available as a supplement,
in the form of glucosamine sulfate, which helps to combat both the causes and
symptoms of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine has been proven in over 300
studies and 20 clinical trials to actually build joint cartilage. It can
also slightly reduce the destruction of cartilage and depression caused by
taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), which are commonly
prescribed for people with arthritis. Glucosamine may be taken in
conjunction with chondroitin sulfate for an even greater effect on
In addition to having benefits for people with
osteoarthritis, supplemental glucosamine can be helpful for asthma, bursitis,
candidiasis, food allergies, osteoporosis, respiratory allergies, tendinitis,
vaginitis, and various skin problems.
Glucosamine Hydrochloride - a key ingredient in our company's joint
product: Glucosamine hydrochloride is derived from chitin, which is most
abundant in the shells of crabs, shrimps, and lobsters. Chitin is
extracted from these shells. Through a series of further extraction and
filtration steps, chitin is broken down into single units of glucosamine, which
is then converted to glucosamine hydrochloride, an acid salt form that is more
stable than its free form. Upon ingestion, glucosamine hydrochloride
molecules are completely ionized into free glucosamine.
