Pharma Nord Bio-Glucosamine SUPER 1527 mg 50 Capsules
Glucosamine Capsules, Bio-Glucosamine Super is a joint supplement intended to support cartilage 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. Supplements are best source of additional glucosamine, as there are no food sources of this nutrient. Bio-Glucosamine Super contains glucosamine sulphate. Bio-Glucosamine helps to maintain healthy joints and supports catilage and bones. Joint tissues are susceptible to damage as a result of work-related repetitive movements, lifting heavy weights, participation in sports, or as a consequence of the normal ageing process. Glucosamine is used within the body to form more complex molecules (proteoglycans) necessary for the maintenance and repair of joint cartilage and related issues (ligaments, tendons). Glucosamine increases proteoglycan synthesis in cartilage cells (chondrocytes), as well as inhibiting the action of the enzymes normally responsible for the degradation of cartilage.
Manufactured to pharmaceutical standards. Supplements are best source of additional glucosamine, as there are no food sources of this nutrient. Glucosamine sulphate is the most readily absorbed (>90%) from the digestive tract and the most readily incorporated into the joint tissues. Maintains healthy joints and supports cartilage and bones. Anti-inflammatory effect.
