Uses For Glucosamine HCl
Joint Composition and Function: Glucosamine promotes the synthesis of the glycosaminoglycan chondroitin. Studies have indicated that glucosamine HCl has the ability to support healthy cartilage integrity, in part by maintaining healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme activity. In other studies, formulations containing glucosamine HCl have suggested positive effects on joint mobility and comfort.*
What Is The Source?
Glucosamine HCl is manufactured in a proprietary process to produce a shellfish-free glucosamine supplement. Its production involves corn fermentation, which produces chitosan as a byproduct. The chitosan is extracted and processed to achieve glucosamine HCl. There is no allergenicity, as no corn protein or DNA are present in the fermentation product. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
