Glucosamine Gel

150ml Gel

Key Features

  • Non-sticky easily absorbed gel
  • Added peppermint oil for its cooling and soothing properties
  • Best taken in conjunction with an oral glucosamine product

Product Overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Gelatin Free

This non-sticky topical gel contains an easily absorbed form of glucosamine together with a blend of natural ingredients including eucalyptus and peppermint. Healthspan's experts recommend using this gel in conjunction with an oral glucosamine.

Bioavailable n-acetyl glucosamine has been included as a highly absorbable form of glucosamine. We have specially selected capsicum for high levels of its active ingredient capsaicin, a beneficial compound present in red peppers and chilli. Pure oil of Wintergreen is naturally extracted from the leaves and berries of the wintergreen plant and contains 99% methyl salicylate. The careful distillation of fresh eucalyptus leaves, harvested in the Chinese province of Guangdong, produces the cool eucalyptus oil included in Healthspan's Glucosamine Gel. This provides a minimum of 80% of the active ingredient, Cineole, responsible for Eucalyptus' distinctive aroma. Lastly, Healthspan's Glucosamine Gel also contains pure peppermint oil for its high content of soothing, cooling menthol.

Product Information


Apply a thin layer of gel where appropriate and gently rub until absorbed. Repeat as required. For best results, apply the gel after a warm bath or shower, or after exertion. For optimum benefit, it is recommended that this gel is used in conjunction with a daily oral glucosamine supplement.
