Supports Cartilage and Joint Function
Glucosamine Sulfate is a stable, clinically studied of glucosamine, which is the fundamental building block required fro the synthesis of connective tissue subunits 9glucosaminoglycans). Glucosamine is an essential building block of proteoglycans, hyaluronic acid (a component of joint lubrication) and glycolipids, and it is essential for the proper formation of tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, bones, skin, nails, and blood vessels.
Joint Builder glucosamine is naturally water-soluble, and low in molecular weight, thereby offering rapid and high absorption (over 90%). MSM is a sulfur donor which is essential for the formation of chondroiton sulfates. Vitamin C and manganese are required for synthesis of collagen and cartilage. People with osteoarthritis are often deficient in Vitamin D3.
Joint builder MSM plus Glucosamine is made with a synergistic blend of MSM and Glucosamine Sulfate. MSM is a bioavailable sulfur compound that occurs naturally in a wide variety of unprocessed food items. Sulfur is a integral component of various amino acids, vitamins, antioxidant compounds, coenzymes and hormones. Sulfur also contributes to the formation of double bonds that give rise to the structural characteristics of collagen, Glucosamine and numerous proteins.
Joint builder Glucosamine Sulfate MSM contains pure glucosamine sulfate, as confirmed by HPLC testing. Glucosamine sulfate consists of glucosamine, an amino sugar extracted from shellfish skeletons. “Chitin”, the resilient polysaccharide that forms the structural framework of animal shells, is a long-chain polymer consisting of many glucosamine molecules linked together. The purified glucosamine is then sulfated and stabilized with potassium chloride. Note: Best Glucosamine Sulfate is sodium-free. It contains 24-26% potassium chloride.
