Collection: Glucosamine

Popular for: arthritis and joint pains; athletes.

Glucosamine is a natural compound produced in the joint-protecting synovial fluid and cartilage tissue. Production can reduce with age and biochemical or nutritional imbalances in the body, affecting the body's ability to repair and replenish cartilage following wear and tear. The painful symptoms of arthritis often appear when cartilage becomes degraded.

Glucosamine has a long history of use for joint health, reducing the rate of collagen degradation and therefore pain and stiffness in the joints, as well as for the management and prevention of osteoarthritis, with minimal side effects.

Small amounts of glucosamine can be obtained from the shell of shellfish as well as bone, bone marrow and even fungi. Supplementation is often the most convenient way of achieving effective doses of >500mg. As glucosamine hydrochloride, the purest form of glucosamine, is naturally stable and requires no added salt or other preservatives, the hydrochloride form of glucosamine is more concentrated than the sulphate form and contains substantially less sodium per effective dose.

Igennus joint supplements use a plant-sourced form of glucosamine hydrochloride that is naturally hypoallergenic, harvested from the natural fungus Aspergillus niger - an alternative to standard glucosamine derived from shellfish.

Tip: the pain-regulating effects of glucosamine are further enhanced when combined with omega-3 fish oil.
