Glucosamine HCl supports joint health by providing the building blocks for constructing cartilage. Glucosamine acts as a joint lubricant, nourishes cartilage, and promotes mobility and flexibility for comfortable movement.

Glucosamine forms the building blocks of vital compounds called mucopolysaccharides that are necessary for the construction and maintenance of virtually all connective tissue and lubricating fluid in the body, including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial (joint) fluid. Glucosamine HCl is a form of glucosamine that may easily allow for sulfur to be incorporated into cartilage.

  • Supports the health of joints and cartilage.*
  • Promotes nutrients that help lubrication for joint comfort.*
  • Glucosamine stimulates synthesis of hyaluronic acid which is important for tissue growth, regeneration and wound healing.*
  • NutraBio Glucosamine HCl provides a form of glucosamine that is easily absorbed.*

Glucosamine HCl may support easing of joint discomfort while increasing flexibility. Glucosamine HCl may help rebuild cartilage - something traditional NSAID pain relievers are unable to do.

Glucosamine (C6H14NO5) is a naturally occurring amino-sugar utilized by the body to support healthy joint structures. Glucosamine is synthesized in the body through a process that includes glutamine and sugar. It is unlike other sugars in that it is incorporated into the structure of tissues rather than being used as an energy source. Glucosamine is an important precursor in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine may provide the building blocks for constructing cartilage.

Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycan (GAG) which is important for healthy cartilage and joints. Glycosaminoglycans are important for the production and maintenance of most connective tissues and lubricating fluids throughout the body and are a major component of joint cartilage.  Supplementing with glucosamine HCl may help to rebuild cartilage.

Glucosamine HCl may help athletes or those with arthritis or joint pain. Glucosamine absorbs and releases water with each step and thereby acts as a shock absorber for the joints offering long-term protection for athletes. Glucosamine is also important for the formation and maintenance of nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones, and heart valves it also plays a role in the mucous secretion of the digestive, respiratory, and urinary tracts.

Glucosamine HCl or Sulfate:

There is discussion over which of the two Glucosamine salts, hydrochloride or sulfate, is preferred for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The answer is straightforward - both salts, in the pure form, deliver equally effective amounts of the desired Glucosamine to joint cartilage. Some studies have shown the HCL to be more effective and some have shown the sulfate to be more effective, so it would be prudent to either try both individually and see which one works better for you.  Glucosamine by itself is unstable and needs a carrier molecule such as sulfate or HCL. In the end its the Glucosamine that offers the benefit and not the carrier molecule.

Truthful and Clear Supplement Facts Panels - No BS Proprietary Blends:

A proprietary blend is a cheap gimmick used by manufacturers to hide the real truth about what's in their product. By listing a bunch of ingredients under one blend on the label, the manufacturer only has to tell you how much of the blend is in a serving while hiding how much of each ingredient is in a serving. They do this to protect their secret formula, that’s bull, they do it so they can cheapen their product without their customers knowing. In the industry we call this “Window Dressing” the product the label looks good on the outside but there is nothing really happening on the inside. At NutraBio our Supplement Facts panels list the exact amount of each and every active ingredient in the supplement. No guessing, you know exactly what you are getting in every product we sell.
