Glucosamine is changing

Glucosamine is classed as both a food supplement and a medicine, depending on its dosage strength. The glucosamine regulations have recently changed, meaning that supplement companies have had to change the amount of glucosamine in their supplements to abide by the new rules. Here's what you need to know.

FAQ: Changes to Healthspan's glucosamine range

Find out how the glucosamine changes will affect the formulation of your Healthspan glucosamine supplements, as well as the recommended dosage.


Healthspan's new glucosamine products

The regulation changes mean that Healthspan will no longer be able to sell Optiflex Glucosamine HCl 1,500mg, as this is strong enough to be classed as a medicine.

To replace it, we are launching Optiflex Glucosamine HCl 1,325mg. This is not only cheaper than the product it replaces, but Healthspan's unique glucosamine hydrochloride (HCl) formula means our 1,325mg product still contains 23% more actual glucosamine than 1,500mg glucosamine sulphate (2KCl) products.

We are also releasing a stronger 1,500mg version of our Glucosamine Sulphate 2KCl formula, which is better value than our current 1,000mg product.
