What is Glucosamine 1,000mg?

Traditionally one of the most popular strengths, our 1,000mg Optiflex Glucosamine offers a high level of glucosamine per tablet at excellent value. 1,000mg is the market standard strength of glucosamine. Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body and is found in our joints.

What is in each Tablet?

Each tablet provides a daily dose of 1,000mg pure glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl). If required, for a higher daily dose, two tablets can be taken daily.

About Optiflex® Glucosamine

Healthspan’s Optiflex Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) marks a major breakthrough for glucosamine supplements – it is the premium, most advanced form of glucosamine available, providing 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 a sustainable corn source by a special process of fermentation. The special production process ensures that our glucosamine HCl is completely free from shell-fish and associated allergies, with high purity and concentration. Optiflex Glucosamine has set the new gold standard in glucosamine supplements.

There used to be 360 tablets, you have reduced by 40 and manipulated the price to make it look like a bargain when you have deals on. Don't take the micky out of your loyal but maybe not for too long customers.

Thank you for your review - During the last few years raw material and manufacturing prices have been soaring. We strive to keep the cost to our Customers as low as possible without the quality being compromised. Therefore it has now become necessary to increase the price, or alter the quantity, on a small number of our lines.

Rating would previously been higher but given both knees have suffered meniscus damage and susequent talks with consultants/physios/scientist no longer convince me of the effectiveness of Glucosamine

With over 30 years of clinical research, Glucosamine is thought to be an effective supplement to take for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as it supports the production of synovial fluid in the joints, however when dealing with existing meniscus damage, it may not be sufficient to produce adequate results.

We would usually suggest Chondroitin and Collagen when advising about issues with joint cartilage, however there are other products that may be more suitable depending on the extent of damage and discomfort. As individuals have varying requirements, we appreciate that it is sometimes difficult to ascertain which product would be the most advantageous. We have a team of trained advisors that may be able to advise you and they can be contacted on our freephone number between 9am - 5:30pm, Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm on Saturdays. Alternatively, you can contact them via email by sending your questions to products@healthspan.co.uk.
