Uses For Glucosamine Complex
Cartilage Composition: This formula combines three forms of glucosamine: glucosamine HCl, glucosamine sulfate and n-acetyl-d-glucosamine. These naturally occurring substances build and maintain the matrix of collagen and connective tissue that forms the ground substance of cartilage. Studies indicate that glucosamine has the ability to support healthy cartilage integrity, in part by maintaining healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme activity. The trace mineral manganese plays a key role in supporting glycosaminoglycan and mucopolysaccharide production and encourages the antioxidant activity of superoxide dismutase. Ascorbate is a vital nutrient for proper collagen formation and also serves as an antioxidant.*
