Promotes healthy joints. Dr. Thompson recommends only Glucosamine, never Chondriotin which is NOT absorbed. This product is a pure Glucosamine product.
DESCRIPTION Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are important building blocks of connective tissue, including cartilage. GAGs, such as chondroitin sulfate, are necessary to help maintain healthy joint structures.* Glucosamine sulfate stimulates the formation of GAGs and inhibits their degradation.* In this way, glucosamine sulfate supports healthy cartilage formation.* Clinical studies have shown that 6-8 weeks of glucosamine sulfate supplementation promoted healthy joint function and reduced tenderness and swelling.*
FUNCTIONS Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in glycosaminoglycans, integral components of the proteoglycans found in joint cartilage. Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate rich structures that provide resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive and lubricating properties to joints and connective tissues. The availability of glucosamine is an integral part of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that are necessary during the constant remodeling that aging cartilage undergoes. Thus, the maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced deposition of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Dietary glucosamine serves as an immediate precursor for glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and also stimulates incorporation of other precursors into the connective tissue matrix. Bioavailability of oral glucosamine sulfate is excellent. It is absorbed intact, and utilized very quickly by all tissues, including connective tissues. Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used for connective tissue metabolism than other glucosamine sources, such as cartilage extracts or chondroitin sulfate. In summary, glucosamine sulfate is a well-recognized, highly effective source of glucosamine for glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues, such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone.
INDICATIONS Glucosamine Sulfate capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to support the structure and function of the body’s connective tissues, such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and skin.
