Glucosamine is often made from the shells of shrimp, crab and lobster, and therefore people with shellfish allergy are advised against taking this supplement. In some countries, synthetic glucosamine is available. Chondroitin sulfate is made from cattle or shark cartilage.
Ask your pharmacist if a synthetic supplement is available.
