What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine can be found in the human body, where it acts as a building block in joints cartilage. However, the body produces less as we age and this is why glucosamine tablets have become so popular. Also, because glucosamine cannot be obtained through diet alone - unless of course you eat prawns (and other crustaceans) by the tonne as it comes from their shells!
Glucosamine has been extensively researched and, although there are no approved European health claims for glucosamine supplementation as yet, it is used by thousands of people across the world who testify to its use in helping them with declining joint health through age or just wear-and-tear from an active lifestyle.
Why is ours better?
As with many of Healthspan’s products, Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl (Hydrochloride) can’t be found from any other supplier. Glucosamine tablets are generally made using prawn/crustacean shells, but we pioneered shellfish-free Glucosamine HCl, which we call Optiflex® and it is made from a far more sustainable natural corn based source.
Our Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl 1,500mg has gained a large fan-base due to its optimum strength and for being suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as well as anyone suffering from a shellfish allergy.
Who is this for?
It is ideal for anyone looking to take fewer tablets daily but achieve high glucosamine levels – our 1,500mg glucosamine product contains the optimum strength of glucosamine widely recommended by experts in one daily tablet.
Made in the UK.
