Glucosamine Sulphate is essential for the growth, repair and maintenance of cartilage and joint tissue. It is used to improve joint health and function and has been shown to reduce joint pain, inflammation and speed up recovery from sports injuries.
Glucosamine Sulphate is produced naturally in the body and is essential for the growth, repair and maintenance of cartilage and joint tissue. Studies have shown that Glucosamine Sulphate supplementation can significantly reduce joint deterioration, inflammation and pain in those suffering from osteoporosis and sports injury. Researchers believe that as well as being an effective treatment for existing joint conditions, higher levels of Glucosamine Sulphate may help repair minor damage and prevent osteoporotic symptoms and joint pain developing in the first place. Glucosamine Sulphate is not present in many natural foods, therefore, supplementation is recommended especially for the physically active and regular trainers whose joints are placed under increased levels of stress.
