Glucosamine is an amino sugar derived from the chitin of shellfish. It is utilized by the body to support healthy joint structures.*
Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) is considered to be as stable and as effective as other glucosamine compounds. Our Glucosamine '1000' contains the highest grade glucosamine at a significantly lower cost than glucosamine sulfate.
Glucosamine is derived from glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). It is used to produce substances in the body that attract and bind water into tissues, making them more resilient. It is especially important to maintain properly functioning joint structures.
Glucosamine is produced by removing the proteins and minerals from the shells of shrimp and crab. This is done primarily in China, with some coming from other Asian countries, including Thailand and Malaysia.
NOW has developed the Official AOAC Method for testing glucosamine and has used this method for the past five years.
