Glucosamine Hydrochloride Chewable Beef Flavour Tablets - Salt Free


Glucosamine HCL is the most versatile and bio-available amino sugar that the body converts into essential biomolecules. Glucosamine is often called “cellular glue”. It is the main building block for semi-fluids that lubricate joints and fill their cushioning sacks (bursa). It also forms the core of skeletal bone and of cell recognition molecules. Recognition molecules are used by the body’s defense systems to distinguish its own cells from other substances.

There are different forms of glucosamine

N-acetyl-glucosamine (commonly referred to as NAG). It is possible that NAG does not penetrate the cell membranes and, as a result, it is not available for incorporation into the building blocks of cartilage.

Glucosamine Sulfate and Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCL)

Functionality - Both dissolve (ionize) completely in the stomach making all of the glucosamine present and available for absorption. Once absorbed into the blood stream, the glucosamine is available to the body.

Purity - Glucosamine Hydrochloride is highly stable and manufactured to a purity of over 99%. On the other hand, the sulfate is only 74% pure as it must be stabilized with approximately 26% sodium (or potassium) chloride to prevent it from losing its effectiveness.

Bio-active Glucosamine - The neutral aminosugar, glucosamine, is the real bio-active material that acts as the precursor to the body’s synthesis of glycoaminoglycans, hyaluronate, proteoglycans, and collagen - all necessary components to repair healthy cartilage and joint function. Based on the aforementioned purity and the relative molecular weights of glucosamine and each of its salts, simple math shows that Glucosamine Hydrochloride delivers 81.3% active glucosamine while sulfate supplies a meager 47.8%.
