What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is found naturally in relatively high concentrations in the joints and connective tissues, where it plays a critical role. Regular exercise can put particular stress on the joints which could lead to a loss in cartilage making you vulnerable to conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Due to a recent ruling by the MHRA, the level at which glucosamine products are classed as medicines to treat mild to moderate osteoarthritis has been reduced to 1,500mg. This has meant the maximum allowable levels for food supplements has subsequently been reduced to 1,325mg. Whilst this has meant we have had to reduce the level of glucosamine in each tablet, it clearly demonstrates the benefits of glucosamine. Each tablet provides 23% more glucosamine than standard 1,500mg glucosamine sulphate products.
Why is ours better?
We only use our patented Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl which delivers 40% more glucosamine per gram than the more commonly used glucosamine sulphate 2KCl (23% more per tablet than 1,500mg glucosamine sulphate 2KCl products).
Joint Physio® Glucosamine 1,325mg is free from shellfish and associated allergens.
