About glucosamine

Glucosamine is a small water soluble molecule (an amino-monosaccharide) that the body itself can produce. Glucosamine is included as a building block in the union of glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronic acid, which both contribute in the construction of joint cartilage.

When to avoid glucosamine

If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to glucosamine, one of the ingredients or to shellfish, do not take glucosamine as the active substance is derived from shellfish.

Caution required

  • By impaired renal function and/or potassium-poor diet
  • By diabetes: Measure your blood sugar regularly when taking glucosamine
  • By asthma
  • Concomitant use of certain drugs: Especially when using blood-thinning drugs (warfarin) and antibiotic -type tetracyclines

Collagen, cartilage and joints

A joint including cartilage Collagen is a cross-linked protein in human tissue. Like the iron mesh that reinforces concrete constructions, collagen provides elasticity and tensile strength, thereby offering useful support for e.g. collagen in joints.

The cartilage in a young and healthy knee joint is intact so it can serve as a protective cushion that absorbs shock and impact. The best way to maintain healthy cartilage is by making sure to stimulate the joint by regular use. In fact, the compression and decompression of the cartilage tissue that happens when you use a joint is necessary to ensure that the supportive nutrients enter the cartilage. These nutrients serve as building blocks in the upkeep of strong and elastic cartilage.

Healthy joints and cartilage are important for maintaining quality of life. The better your joints function, the easier it is for you to stay physically active and enjoy the different activities that help you stay youthful and fit.
