Healthy cartilage depends heavily on many factors including water retention, protection
from destructive enzymes and ample nourishment. NOW Glucosamine/Chondroitin Sulfate
is a perfectly balanced blend of two naturally occuring elements that may assist
the joints in establishing mobility that is not only normal and healthy, but free
and easy as well. By increasing water retention (a natural cushion) in the joints,
the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate has been shown to protect
joint tissue, and may even provide the materials necessary to naturally repair
damaged or eroded cartilage.
What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is composed of glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). It is utilized
by chondrocytes to form glycosaminoglycans (GSG's) and proteoglycans. Both of
these constituents attract and bind water into cartilage, increasing resiliency.
How is glucosamine manufactured?
Glucosamine is supplied mostly by China. The shells of shrimp and crabs
have their proteins and minerals removed producing Chitin or poly N-acetylglucosamine.
Manufacturers use acid with a depolymerizing and deacetylating process to produce
glucosamine hydrochloride or glucosamine sulfate.
What is the source of your Chondroitin, and is it BSE free?
NOW Chondroitin is derived from bovine tracheal tissue. The cattle are raised
in China. As with all of our raw materials, we screen Chondroitin very carefully
for the presence of any undesirable microbes, and is BSE Free.
