It is important to note that there are two types of Glucosamine - there is glucosamine sulphate (KCI) and glucosamine hydrochoride (HCL). The sulphate version is not recommended for people taking blood pressure tablets because it contains potassium chloride or sodium chloride. In other words, it is equivalent to salt which a person with high blood pressure should stay away from. It is therefore preferable to use Glucosamine hydrochloride. 1500mg of Glucosamine a day has been medically proven to relieve the symptoms of arthritis.
