Holland & Barrett Vegan Glucosamine 500mg HCL is specially formulated for anyone following a vegan or vegetarian diet. It also contains vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation to support healthy cartilage.
This supplement contains glucosamine hydrochloride, which is the chloride form of N-acetyl glucosamine, for easy absorption into the body.
Glucosamine has become a popular dietary supplement in recent years.
Glucosamine in the body
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.
Natural glucosamine can be found in shellfish, animal bones, bone marrow and fungi. However, it is very rarely found in major food sources.
Glucosamine can also be made in a laboratory. This vegan formula does not contain any glucosamine from animal sources and is derived from a plant source of glucosamine.
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.
Vegan glucosamine with vitamin C
As well as glucosamine HCL, Holland & Barrett Glucosamine 500mg HCL also benefits from vitamin C.
Vitamin C, which is also known as ascorbic acid, supports normal collagen formation to support the normal function of cartilage. Cartilage is one of the most important components within joints.
