Glucosamine Sulfate ............................ 500 mg
Glucosamine Sulfate, provided by Douglas
Laboratories, is a well-absorbed source of
glucosamine, an important precursor for the synthesis
and maintenance of connective tissues.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar
found in glycosaminoglycans, integral components of
the proteoglycans found in joint cartilage.
Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate rich structures
that provide resiliency, load distribution, shockabsorbing,
compressive and lubricating properties to
joints and connective tissues. The availability of
glucosamine is an integral part of the synthesis of
glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that are
necessary during the constant remodeling that aging
cartilage undergoes. Thus, the maintenance of healthy
aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced
deposition of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Dietary glucosamine serves as an immediate precursor
for glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and also stimulates
incorporation of other precursors into the connective
tissue matrix. Bioavailability of oral glucosamine
sulfate is excellent. It is absorbed intact, and utilized
very quickly by all tissues, including connective
tissues. Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used
for connective tissue metabolism than other
glucosamine sources, such as cartilage extracts or
chondroitin sulfate. In summary, glucosamine sulfate
is a well recognized, highly effective source of
glucosamine for glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan
synthesis in all connective tissues, such as cartilage,
ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone.
Glucosamine Sulfate capsules may be a useful dietary
supplement for individuals who wish to support the
structure and function of the body's connective tissues,
such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and skin.
