Glucosamine Sulfate is a dietary supplement to support connective tissue and joint functions. Glucosamine is an amino sugar normally formed in the body from glucose. It is the starting point for the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), including hyaluronic acid, a main constituent of joint fluid. Glucosamine supplementation supports the thick gelatinous nature of the joint fluids, joint hydration, and flexibility as well as the function of joints, spinal discs and other connective tissues.
Glucosamines are the body's natural building blocks for connective tissues. They help strengthen and hold together ligaments, tendons, heart valves, nails, bones, and cartilage.
Joint and Connective Tissue Support
Glucosamine is the starting point for the synthesis of such connective tissues as cell membrane lining, collagen, bone matrix, mucous membranes and transport molecules for vitamins, lipids and minerals. It is the building block of hyaluronic acid, which is a major cushioning ingredient in joint fluid and surrounding tissues. Glucosamine also supports the thick, gelatinous nature of the fluids and tissues in and around the joints and in between vertebrae.
Gastrointestinal and Respiratory Support
For people with digestive tract complaints, glucosamine helps support and repair the protective coat of the intestinal wall and supports the protective mucus membrane lining the respiratory tract.
Glucosamine helps to increase the bodyGÇÖs capacity to counter the effects of skin disorders, such as psoriasis, or acne, where damaged skin may need to be replaced and replenished faster than normal.
