Glucosamine in the body
Glucosamine is a chemical which is naturally found in the human body. Chemically, it is classified as an amino sugar.
Glucosamine is naturally found in the body and is classed as an amino sugar. It plays an important role in making the building blocks of ligaments, tendons, cartilage and synovial fluid.
As well as naturally occurring in the human body, natural glucosamine is also present in shellfish, bones, bone marrow and some fungi.
Glucosamine has become more and more popular as a supplement in recent years.
Supplements which are made with either shells from shellfish or animal bones are not vegan friendly. However, the good news is that glucosamine can also be made within a laboratory.
Holland & Barrett Vegan Glucosamine 500mg 2KCI is a vegan-friendly glucosamine supplement which is made from plant-based ingredients and therefore suitable for anyone following a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Joints in the human body
Our joints are hard working. After all, they are involved in almost every single move we make.
From running and walking, to picking something up and even just typing on a computer, joints play a part in all of these movements.
Cartilage is the connective tissue which protects the bones within the joints where they connect with each other. It is flexible, rubbery and tough, providing padding for the bones and stopping them from rubbing together and causing friction.
As we get older, the cartilage within the joints naturally starts to become less flexible and may also start to break down.
Also although glucosamine is naturally present in the human body, our natural levels of it start to fall as we get older.
Adding a vegan glucosamine supplement to your daily routine helps keep glucosamine levels topped up.
Glucosamine with added vitamin C
Holland & Barrett Vegan Glucosamine 500mg 2KCI also benefits from added vitamin C. Vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage.
