Product Overview

  • Gelatin Free
This product has been discontinued. Look out for our NEW improved formulation launching in early December - Glucosamine & Magnesium Gel.

This non-sticky topical gel contains an easily absorbed form of glucosamine together with a blend of natural ingredients including eucalyptus and peppermint. Healthspan's experts recommend using this gel in conjunction with an oral glucosamine.

Bioavailable n-acetyl glucosamine has been included as a highly absorbable form of glucosamine. We have specially selected capsicum for high levels of its active ingredient capsaicin, a beneficial compound present in red peppers and chilli.

Pure oil of Wintergreen is naturally extracted from the leaves and berries of the wintergreen plant and contains 99% methyl salicylate. The careful distillation of fresh eucalyptus leaves, harvested in the Chinese province of Guangdong, produces the cool eucalyptus oil included in Healthspan's Glucosamine Gel. This provides a minimum of 80% of the active ingredient, Cineole, responsible for Eucalyptus' distinctive aroma. Lastly, Healthspan's Glucosamine Gel also contains pure peppermint oil for its high content of soothing, cooling menthol.

The product arrived very quickly and has been most effective, as I have just had a replacement hip and I suspect that they used my knee as a lever. I have been applying the gel regularly on my knee and it has been most beneficial.

We love to hear how beneficial you are finding the product.
