What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a major building block of proteins called glycosaminoglycans, which are found naturally in our joints. It's an especially important component of cartilage: the flexible tissue that protects the ends of our bones from friction when we move. Glucosamine is most commonly found in the shells of crustaceans such as prawns and crabs, as well as fermented grain. However, it is not possible to get significant amounts of glucosamine from our diets - unless you're eating prawns by the ton!
Why is ours better?
Healthspan's Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl (hydrochloride) is derived from a sustainable corn-based source. It was the first glucosamine supplement to be made from this food source in the UK, making it accessible to vegetarians and vegans, as well as anyone suffering from a shellfish allergy. Even better, glucosamine HCl delivers 40% more pure glucosamine per gram than standard glucosamine sulphate 2KCl. Some of us have difficulty swallowing large capsules. At this lower dose of 750mg glucosamine, our capsules are smaller and therefore easier to swallow. Finally, we've added vitamin C to our formulation, to support your joint and cartilage health.*
*Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage.
Omega 3 fish oils are a great companion to glucosamine supplements. Our High Strength Omega 3 500mg capsules are an easy-to-swallow option to get the beneficial fatty acids DHA and EPA in your diet.
