Glucosamine HCI is the most versatile and bio-available amino sugar that the body converts into essential biomolecules. Glucosamine is often called "cellular glue". It is the main building block for semi-fluids that lubricate joints and fill their cushioning sacks (bursa). It also forms the core of skeletal bone and of cell recognition molecules. Recognition molecules are used by the body's defense system to distinguish its own cells from other substances
Effective for joint function and health
Your body uses glucosamine, a natural compound, to create one of the main building blocks of joint cartilage -proteoglycans. As you age, the amount of glucosamine created by the body decreases. This causes cartilage and bones to scrape against each other. Joints become damaged, and the lubricating synovial fluid in joint spaces becomes thin and watery. Supplementing your diet with glucosamine may help to replenish these fluids.To ensure effective absorption and tissue utilization, this formula uses glucosamine in the sulfate form to provide the sulfur necessary for supporting the repair of cartilage.
