  • Glucosamine sulfate is essential for strong, healthy joints. Glucosamine is an ingredient for building cartilages and other connective tissues that cushions the joints. Scientific studies point toward this amino sugar for helping repair the mechanical wear and tear in the joints that causes arthritis. With increased supply of glucosamine sulfate, more ingredients are available to form new and repair damaged connective tissues that cause arthritis symtoms. Scientists observed that adding glucosamine sulfate in the diet improved joint health in people with arthritis as manifested by improved joint mobility, pain relief, and reduced swelling.
  • In studies for sports medicine, glucosamine was found to promote healing in knee injury. Knee injury patients in the study experienced improved joint functions and mobility. It appears that Glucosamine aids in rebuilding damaged connective tissues leading to improvement in joint flexibility and extension in the knees.
  • Glucosamine has skin benefits too. The skin is a connective tissue that glucosamine strengthens as well. This amino sugar has become so famous in the field of dermatology for its skin care benefits including reducing the appearance of wrinkles, moisturising the skin, promoting wound healing, and diminishing hyperpigmentation.


Now Foods Glucosamine Sulfate contains the supplement form of the amino sugar glucosamine for joint health support. Glucosamine is a natural component of health and strong cartilages, the connective tissue that cushions the joints. It is also present in other connective tissues like the tendons, ligaments, and the skin, as well as the liver and the kidneys. The body produces its own supply of glucosamine from glucose but gradually diminishes with age. Mechanical wear and tear of the cartilages and other connective tissues occur with age. With less production of glucosamine, these connective tissues aren’t repaired and lesser new tissues are formed. The imbalance of glucosamine in the body increases the risk for arthritis, an inflammatory joint condition caused by the wear and tear of the connective tissues cushioning the joints. The bones forming the joints now brush against each other with the absence of the cushion and thereby creating friction. This friction is the cause of arthritis symptoms such as joint pain, immobility, and swelling. Now Foods Glucosamine Sulfate is formulated to supply the body with additional glucosamine from the chitin of shellfish for maximum joint support.
