Quality and sustainability
One of the principles followed by Healthspan's founder, Derek Coates, is that he would not sell any supplements that he wouldn't give to his own mother. This means that providing top-quality vitamins and minerals was always a priority.
Optiflex Glucosamine HCl 1,325mg is made with only the best, most sustainable ingredients on the market. Unlike other glucosamine products, which are made from shellfish, it is derived from an easily accessible vegetable source: non-GMO corn. This makes it safe for vegans and anyone with a shellfish allergy, who previously wouldn't have been able to experience the benefits of glucosamine.
What's more, using non-GMO corn as a base for glucosamine significantly reduces the environmental impact. Shellfish-based glucosamine requires a large amount of chemicals and clean drinking water to make it, thereby generating vast amounts of wastewater.
Corn-based glucosamine produces around 2% of the waste of the shellfish-derived version, so not only are you getting the best-quality glucosamine available, but you're minimising the environmental damage caused by the process.
