Glucosamine sulfate‚ which is a compound consisting of glutamine (an amino acid) and glucose (a form of sugar) that naturally occurs in cartilage‚ can help support joint mobility and comfort. Cartilage is a form of connective tissue located between bones‚ as well as in other areas; it provides cushioning. Weakened cartilage in the knees or other areas can cause your bones to rub against each other painfully‚ preventing you from being active. If your joints require additional support‚ Pure Encapsulations' Glucosamine Sulfate 1‚000 mg is an easy way to ensure that you get it. Every capsule provides one thousand milligrams of glucosamine derived from shellfish (crab and shrimp)‚ as well as fat-soluble vitamin C to promote absorption. Unlike other products‚ this supplement does not contain additional compounds. In order to restore and regenerate connective tissue‚ the human body needs glucosamine. It promotes cartilage resilience and strength through the synthesis of proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are essential protein molecules. To relieve mild joint discomfort and stiffness‚ glucosamine sulfate is located in the synovial fluid around the knees‚ hips‚ back‚ and elsewhere. This supplement may be especially helpful as you get older‚ since soreness is often experienced with age due to decreased natural glucosamine production; as a result‚ the cartilage thins and causes increased friction. Sulfate promotes cartilage production‚ possibly making glucosamine sulfate more effective than other forms of glucosamine. Take one or two capsules per day‚ in divided doses with meals to help decrease the speed of joint decline and maintain a good range of motion. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Glucosamine Sulfate 1‚000 mg by Pure Encapsulations should last for about one to two months.
