View larger Glucosamine + is Joint Sustaining Nutrition

Joints and connective tissues both hold us together and keep us apart. Ligaments and tendons, and even muscle, mostly do the binding. Whereas it is joints, including and synovial fluid, that are mostly responsible for keeping bones from grinding against one another. This is a difficult task, as the amount of impact force that joints can cushion is far more effective than any man-made material. Though our joints are difficult to rebuild once they’ve deteriorated, there are some nutrients that can help maintain joint health.*

What Distinguishes this Product? Sodium-Free Glucosamine Sulfate1.5 g Glucosamine Sulfate and 1.2 g Chondroitin Sulfate Per Serving Quantities consistent with clinical researchAlso Contains Vitamin C and Manganese Useful in the synthesis of collagen and cartilage View larger Glucosamine: Hyaluronic Acid Precursor

Glucosamine is a building block of hyaluronic acid, and is found in high quantities in the joints. Hyaluronic acid is synthesized by hyaluronic acid synthases (HAS), which covalently link monomeric N-acetyl-glucosamine, a derivative of glucosamine, and glucuronic acid in alternating fashion.

In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial the effect of 1500 mg/day of oral glucosamine from glucosamine sulfate was examined in 202 human subjects over three years. The glucosamine group maintained joint width over the course of the trial, while the placebo group did not. Results on the two groups using the Lequesne index, the WOMAC total index, and functional subscales indicated support for joint function and , as well.*

Chondroitin

Although usually studied independently, some reports have indicated that glucosamine sulfate (GS) and chondroitin sulfate work synergistically. Chondroitin sulfate is the perfect complement to GS since chondroitin acts like a biological version of a “liquid magnet,” attracting fluid into proteoglycans. This fluid acts as a shock absorber and also brings nutrients with it into the cartilage. Perhaps of greater significance than its fluid-enhancing properties, chondroitin protects existing cartilage through its modulatory effects on enzymes that degrade cartilage.* Furthermore, like GS, chondroitin stimulates the production of proteoglycans and collagen that are needed for the maintenance of healthy cartilage.*

In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the effectiveness of chondroitin sulfate was evaluated for promoting joint health in the knee. In this study, 300 human subjects were given either 1200 mg chondroitin sulfate or placebo once per day for 2 years. The group receiving the placebo had progressive joint space narrowing, while those receiving chondroitin sulfate showed no change in the mean width of joint space.*

Very happy with this product Very happy with this product. I’ve previously been unable to take Glucosamine and Chondroitin, and I recently realized the problem might be my inability to tolerate gluten. I’ve been taking this for ten days with no intestinal cramping at all, and I can already notice the orthopedic benefit. Thank you, Jarrow, for this product. Also, I love the small capsules. I much prefer to take several small capsules instead of trying to choke down one or two oversized pills.

Hedwig says:

No sodium and works best of all I tried Helps a great deal for osteoarthritis pain and ability to move more. Most important is the sodium free formula since salt from other brands of this formula can cause many problems. Recently, I tried a different brand that is almost twice as expensive, and it did not seem to work at all. Almost as soon as I switched back to this brand, the pain subsided again. Highly recommended.

Led Jedi says:

Great for people and dogs I takes these daily for myself and have for a while. It really helps with muscle and joint pain, but I also have large dogs. I throw some peanut butter on the back of a spoon and push a capsule into it. My dogs will eat them all day long like that, no problem. It really helps with mobility of my older dog and WAY cheaper than chewable glucosamine intended for dogs.
