Key Features

  • 375mg Glucosamine HCl per tablet
  • Includes Calcium, Ginger and Vitamins C & D3
  • Concentrated, fast acting formula

Product Overview

  • Suitable for Vegetarians
  • Gelatin Free
As we age our bodies ability to absorb nutrients to their full capacity diminishes and tablets become harder to digest. As a result, higher levels of certain nutrients need to be delivered in a different format and in a more concentrated dose. This is why, our expert nutritionists have developed Fast Release Glucosamine 70 Plus.

Each capsule contains:

Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl - Found naturally in joints throughout the body glucosamine is quite rightly one of the most popular ingredients used by thousands in the UK. Our sustainable corn-derived Optiflex Glucosamine HCl is 100% free from shellfish and provides an impressive 40% more glucosamine per gram than glucosamine sulphate 2KCl.

Calcium – This well-known nutrient is included at beneficial levels to help maintain normal bones and mobility.

Vitamin D3 - Also contributing to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function, Vitamin D3 plays a key role in the absorption of calcium and complements the actions of glucosamine perfectly.

Ginger – Containing gingerols, the active ingredient, ginger root has traditionally been used historically used throughout the world as a culinary spice. Also, recognised as a perfect partner to glucosamine, ginger has been included for its multiple benefits to provide additional support.

Vitamin C – Completing this 70 Plus formulation perfectly, vitamin C plays a role in normal collagen formation which supports the normal function of cartilage which is present in many joints in the body.

Our experts recommend taking four capsules daily in a single dose for maximum, fast acting support. Four capsules provide 1,500mg advanced Optiflex Glucosamine HCl, 120mg calcium, 80mg ginger, 80mg vitamin C and 5mcg vitamin D3.

I had to have a hip replacement 5 years ago and was told I would need the other one done I started taking this and so far not needed.

My husband and I have fairly recently started to use this product as an additional supplement for care of our joints. We seem to be doing well.

I've just explained what I thought of product in last box.

Thank you for your review.

Excellent value and help keep arthritis at bay.

24 September 2016

A great pity the tablets are covered with such a fragile 'skin' as it is too easy to bend the pill and deform it when squeezing it out of the blister pack. In fact it is impossible to extract the pill without damaging it in the process. I have not found this problem with any of the other Healthspan products we use.

Thank you for your comments.

We are pleased to inform you that due to similar customer feedback, the capsule are now full which insures the capsule shell stays rigid and firm.

I have taken these for some months for Arthritis in My Knee difficult to say if any improvement yet but I'll persevere.

I am sure they are helping my joints to keep fairly active - The only criticism is sometimes they are difficult to extract from their bubble pack.

20 September 2016

They help reduce the aches and stiffness in my joints.

It's great to hear you are pleased with the products - Nicola

i have used a high strength of healthspan glucosamine for many years and have recently changed to 70 plus fast release 120 and find it equally excellant.

I find it very hard to get the tablets out of the foil and wish they were as easy as the cod liver tablets.
