Almost every move we make needs a little help from a joint or two: brushing your hair in the morning, bending down to pick up a bag, and even opening a packet of biscuits. So, it’s quite important to keep them in full working order.
What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a building block of cartilage and joint tissue. It is essential for the syntheses of several important macromolecules including glycoproteins, glycolipids and glycosaminoglycans. These macromolecules can be found in the synovial fluid, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles.
What is chondroitin?
Another essential building block of cartilage, chondroitin is the tough tissue that acts as a shock absorber around the joints in humans and animals. It’s chondroitin’s job to help your cartilage hang on to water – increasing its elasticity. Chondroitin is also found in tendons, ligaments, bone and skin.
These supplements contain hydrolysed cartilage – a complex structural protein found in skin, hair and nails. They also contain MSM – a natural form of organic sulphur which helps the body’s production of glycosaminoglycans (key components of cartilage).
Simply take one of these glucosamine tablets three times a day – preferably with meals and see how these chondroitin and glucosamine supplements can aid your cartilage production and help maintain your joints.

Both glucosamine and chondroitin are derived from animals.
Specifically, these tablets contain 2KCI (crustaceans), which means they are therefore unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Similarly, those allergic to shellfish or iodine should avoid natural glucosamine and chondroitin.
For best results, take one tablet three times a day. If you can, spread the time you take them evenly throughout the day.
Take each tablet with food to prevent any feelings of nausea.
Similar to glucosamine, chondroitin is essential for joints.
High Strength Glucosamine & Chondroitin Complex tablets contain hydrolysed cartilage.
This is a complex structural protein contained within hair, nails, and skin.
They also contain MSM. This is a type of natural organic sulphur that helps the body produce glycosaminoglycans.
Chondroitin is a tough tissue that is another critical cartilage building-block, andn is derived from the cartilage of sharks, pigs, and cows.
Glucosamine is the building block of cartilage & joint tissue. Your body uses it to make macromolecules like glycosaminoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins, which help the body to produce cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles and synovial fluids – the main components of your joints.
Glucosamine sulphate is an amino sugar that is naturally found in the fluid around your body’s joints.
Glucosamine sulphate helps the body create glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins, which are both essential parts of the joints.
The joints are made up of several parts, including bone, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and synovium.
Glucosamine sulphate is either harvested from shellfish shells or made with plant-based sources.
