- When there is excess wear, more raw ‘material’ is needed for repair of the joints and surrounding structures in our bodies
- If body chemistry is unbalanced, it may be that insufficient glucosamine is formed, which limits our ability to repair wear and damage
- Equally, as we age, the enzyme glucosamine synthetase becomes less effective, which slows the rate of matrix repair - this is why healing is slower in the elderly
- Glucosamine speeds regeneration - as long as your rate of repair keeps up with the rate of tissue loss, your bones and tissues will stay healthy
- Glucosamine Hydrochloride (the chloride form of N-acetyl Glucosamine) is the newest and purest form of glucosamine, and the form now preferred by the medical profession for long-term use
- Our glucosamine HCL is derived from the shells of shellfish from Far Eastern waters
- Easy to take gluten-free capsules
- Suitable for Men, Women, Children and the Elderly
- Suitable for people with Candida and Yeast sensitivities
- Free from Genetically Modified Substances
This supplement comes in two sizes – you are viewing the page for the bottle comprising 60 capsules; for the larger size: Glucosamine HCL, 180 capsules.
Glucosamine and Amino Sugars
The extra-cellular connective tissue matrix is a mesh of microfibres that give your skin firmness and supports muscles, ligaments, blood vessels and other organs. Although it is constantly being broken down, it is also constantly being repaired.
A problem arises if the rate of breakdown exceeds the rate of repair. Then skin and other connective tissues such as cartilage lose their structure. This shows up as aging skin and thinning cartilage, as in osteoarthritis. To prevent this deterioration, you must increase the rate at which the matrix is repaired, and that largely depends on the rate at which your body can produce the amino sugar glucosamine.
The entire human skeleton is renewed every 10 years or so. This means we all need good tissue regeneration rates to keep us healthy. Glucosamine speeds regeneration. As long as your rate of repair keeps up with the rate of tissue loss, your bones and tissues will stay healthy.
Can we be short of Glucosamine?
Yes, it would appear so - when there is excess wear, more raw material is needed for repair of the joints and surrounding structures. If body chemistry is unbalanced it may be that insufficient glucosamine is formed, which limits our ability to repair wear and damage. Equally, as we age the enzyme glucosamine synthetase becomes less effective, which slows the rate of matrix repair. This is why healing is slower in the elderly.
Best Natural Sources
There are no edible sources of Glucosamine - bound forms do occur in cartilage, but in meat this is gristle and we tend not to eat it.
