The main component of ligaments, tendons, cartilages and spinal discs is collagen, which is the most abundant protein in mammals. Its purpose is to actually connect cells together. The name collagen is derived from Greek and means to ‘produce glue’. The tissues mentioned above are also rich in proteoglycans, which are composed of 95% glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and 5% protein. These GAGs act as a framework for collagen to model onto and consequently are responsible, with collagen, for continuously rebuilding ligaments, tendons, cartilages and spinal discs. The major precursor in GAG production is Glucosamine, which is produced in the body from glucose and glutamine. Athletic endeavour, physical work or simply passing years means the body can no longer keep up with demand for Glucosamine and damage to the joints can occur.

Glucosamine Sulphate 1500mg (High Strength)
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound which plays a role in the maintenance of the cartilage and connective tissues in the joints. Natures Aid Glucosamine Sulphate tablets ensure a regular supply of Glucosamine is provided in an easily absorbed form.
Contra-indications / Precautions
Glucosamine is a readily absorbed amino sugar which quickly enters the bloodstream. Anyone who needs to monitor blood sugar levels should be made aware of this, though three extensive, recent trials have reported stable blood sugar levels in subjects taking Glucosamine in its sulphate form. People with a known shellfish allergy should avoid the Glucosamine Sulphate form as it is derived from shellfish. The Glucosamine Hydrochloride in the liquid is also manufactured from shellfish.
