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 substancesThe body uses glucosamine sulfate, a natural compound, to stimulate cells to create one of the main building blocks of joint cartilage -- proteoglycans. Chondroitin sulfate attracts and holds large amounts of water to the cartilage-building proteoglycan molecules. Since cartilage has no blood supply, this fluid is necessary to nourish and lubricate joints. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane, or dimethyl sulfone) is a sulfur-containing molecule found in various plants and some body tissues. It is a natural and efficient source of the sulfur that is used by many of the body's structural molecules, including joint cartilage.
Provides essential nutrients to stimulate cells to help build joint cartilage.
