Description of Glucosamine & MSM Vegetarian 120 Vcaps, NOW Foods
Glucosamine & MSM
Glucosamine is an essential substrate for the formation of glycoaminoglycans (GAG's)
and proteoglycans, which are the main components of cartilage tissue. GAG's and
proteoglycans trap and hold water, forming a dense fluid cushion within the joint
and thus, provide lubrication and shock absorption. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
is a natural source of organic sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production
of proteoglycans. NOW's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians,
because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.
What veggies is the Vegetarian Glucosamine & MSM made from?
Our new Vegetarian Glucosamine Hcl and MSM contain the patent-pending Regenasure
Glucosamine Hcl from Cargill. This exciting non-shellfish source is produced via
proprietary fermentation process using corn dextrose, citric acid and a non-GMO
Aspergillus niger fungal starting material. To date this new vegetarian source
Glucosamine product has been well received and a blessing for those who have shellfish
allergies as well as providing the ONLY non-animal alternative for vegans.
Though the Cargill Company has performed no human studies at this time it is
generally believed that due to the fact that this product is molecularly identical
to the shellfish form it may provide beneficial support to a natural joint health
program specifically designed for vegetarians.
