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.

Chondroitin is a complex sugar which is naturally found in the cartilage of our joints, as well as in the cartilage of pigs, cows and sharks.
Chondroitin is the tough tissue that acts as a shock absorber around the joints. It helps the cartilage to retain water. Chondroitin is also found in tendons, ligaments, bone and skin..
Glucosamine is a natural sugar, which is found in the cartilage around the joints. It can also be found in animal bones, bone marrow, shellfish and fungi. It is also available in a synthetic form.
Glucosamine chondroitin complex is a dietary supplement which contains both glucosamine and chondroitin.
Both of these ingredients are structural components of cartilage, which is the connective tissue that cushions the joints and they are both found naturally in the body.
You can, of course, take glucosamine and chondroitin separately, but this high strength combines both.
Our joints are a very important component of our bodies, as we need to use them for almost everything we do. From walking around to brushing your teeth, bending down to pick something up and even something as simple as opening a packet of crisps.
