What is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring compound inside the human body. It is found in healthy cartilage and in the fluid around joints.

Studies suggest glucosamine sulfate is useful in treating osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis.

Glucosamine sulfate is also naturally present in the shells of shellfish. In fact, many of today’s natural supplements are often harvested from shellfish.

Some research indicates glucosamine sulfate reduces pain as well as over the counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Taking glucosamine sulfate may also prevent the need for total knee replacement surgery.
