What is Glucosamine & Omega 3?
Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body's connective tissue and is a structural component of joint cartilage - the flexible tissue that protects the bones from friction at the joints. As we age, our bodies produce less glucosamine, leaving our joints more vulnerable to damage. Omega 3 fish oil contains the fatty acids DHA and EPA, which have been found to be beneficial to our overall heart health, as well as keeping our eyesight and brains in good working order*. One of the main reasons scientists have long rated the Mediterranean diet for health is its fish content. In fact, the UK's Food Standards Agency recommends we eat at least two portions of fish every week, including one of oily fish, such as sardines, mackerel and salmon. Our Glucosamine & Omega 3 supplement combines these two popular nutrients in one small, easy-to-swallow capsule, often taken by those who want to support an active lifestyle.
Why is ours better?
We make our capsules using our patented glucosamine HCl, which is free from shellfish and associated allergens. And because sea pollution has led to increasing concerns about toxins, we use a patented technology to purify our fish oil, removing pollutants to levels that are lower than those found in fresh fish. What's more, we only use sustainably sourced fish oil that has been granted 'Friend of the Sea' certification and is obtained using methods that don't over-exploit fish stocks or threaten the marine food chain.
Who is this for?
It's for those looking for the two popular nutrients glucosamine and omega 3 combined into one convenient, easy-swallow capsule to help maintain their active lifestyle and support cartilage health.

In light of recent changes to our fish oils, our capsule shells have switched from marine-source gelatin to Halal certified animal-source gelatin. Animal-source gelatin is more durable than marine-source gelatin, therefore reducing the risk of your capsules leaking and making them easier to remove from the blister pack. For information on how this change may affect any special dietary requirements you may have, please contact our call centre on 0800 73 123 77 where one of our highly-trained product advisors will be happy to help.
