Glucosamine is a naturally occurring biological compound found in the body. It is vital for building cartilage, the rubbery, spongy tissue that enables joints to flex and move smoothly and easily. It is the joint “shock-absorber”. Because natural Glucosamine levels drop with age, the cartilage surrounding the joints can begin to deteriorate causing joint pain and stiffness.
Supplementing with Glucosamine may help restore joint comfort thereby enhancing flexibility and mobility. Glucosamine is an essential building block to some of the main components of cartilage. These components act to trap and bind water into tissues that keep your cartilage hydrated and healthy.
Typically, Glucosamine is derived from shellfish. Our vegetarian formula supplies GreenGrown® Glucosamine HCl, which is derived from a Non-GMO corn source, which makes this supplement safe for those with allergies to shellfish or those who are maintaining a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Why add MSM to Glucosamine?
MSM, known as Methylsulfonymethane, is a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in almost every cell of the body. It is an important building block for collagen formation and for anti-oxidant production. It has been researched for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits for muscles and tendons.
MSM may be consumed as a supplement or through food products such as fruits, vegetables, poultry, fish, eggs, meats and milks. This nutraceutical has been found to ease joint stiffness, swelling and pain, especially when combined with Glucosamine.
