More about glucosamine

Glucosamine is the major building block for the chains and lattices that make up cartilage. By helping to keep these elements in strong supply, glucosamine can help to rebuild cartilage and connective tissue as it is worn down. Until now, all glucosamine has been sourced from shellfish, making it inaccessible to vegetarians and those maintaining a kosher diet.

What the studies say

Several studies have shown glucosamine prevents the breakdown of collagen. While studies show mixed results, many have shown that glucosamine hydrochloride supports joint health and it is one of the world’s most popular supplements for joint health and many people believe it reduces their adverse symptoms.
