Bio-Glucosamine Mega supplement is intended for joint support, catilage and bones. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring sugar molecule, the product contains vitamin C which contributes to collagen formation for normal functioning of bones and cartilage. Glucosamine is produced within the body, but levels reduce with increasing age. Chondroitin is often excluded from supplements because of its relatively high cost.

Glucosamine stimulates the formulation of normal joint cartilage and provides an anti-inflammartory effect and Chondroitin helps maintain the correct fluid balance in cartilage, as well as acting as joint lubricant.
