Glucosamine & Chondroitin

   
120 Tablets (40-day supply)

Key Benefits

  • The most economical way to obtain your daily intake of both glucosamine and chondroitin
  • With 90% grade chondroitin
  • 40% more glucosamine per gram

Product overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Gelatin Free

Healthspan’s Optiflex Glucosamine HCl provides 40% more pure glucosamine per gram than standard glucosamine sulphate 2KCl. Unlike the more common glucosamine sulphate form (predominantly sourced from shellfish) Optiflex Glucosamine HCl is produced from natural plant sources by a special process of fermentation making it completely shellfish-free, purer and more concentrated than the standard form. Glucosamine HCl also provides 40% more glucosamine per gram than the standard glucosamine sulphate 2KCl form.

The chondroitin sulphate used in this formulation and in all Healthspan products is 90% grade. Most other companies use the lower strength and far cheaper 20% grade, which provides less chondroitin per gram.

For a more premium combination of glucosamine and chondroitin with higher levels of the active ingredients try ChondroMax®.

I am still not fully convinced about the claims made for Glucosamine but still feel that it is worth taking and that it is the absence of joint pain (so far !) that supports this thinking .
