Description of Glucosamine Sulfate 750 mg, 120 Capsules, NOW Foods
Glucosamine is an amino sugar derived from the chitin of shellfish. Glucosamine
is utilized by the body to support healthy joint structures.
What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is composed of glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). It is utilized
by chondrocytes to form glycosaminoglycans (GSG's) and proteoglycans. Both of
these constituents attract and bind water into cartilage, increasing resiliency.
How is glucosamine manufactured?
Glucosamine is supplied mostly by China. The shells of shrimp and crabs have
their proteins and minerals removed producing Chitin or poly N-acetylglucosamine.
Manufacturers use acid with a depolymerizing and deacetylating process to produce
glucosamine hydrochloride or glucosamine sulfate.
