Jarrow Formulas

  • Contains glucosamine sulfate which is essential for the proper formation of tendons and ligaments.
  • Also promotes healthy bones, skin, nails, and blood vessels.

Glucosamine Sulfate is a stable, scientifically-studied form of glucosamine, which is required for synthesizing subunits (glycosaminoglycans) of connective tissue in the body. Glucosamine is an aminosaccharide generated from both a sugar (glucose) and protein (the amino acid glutamine). Glucosamine can be synthesized by man or retrieved from natural sources, e.g., shells of crabs, lobsters. It is a required nutrient needed to build and repair certain tissues. Tissue such as cartilage, heart valves, mucous membranes, and synovial fluid (a joint lubricant) all require glucosamine to function properly.

Joint Builder® glucosamine has a low molecular weight and is water-soluble. This allows for high and rapid absorption (over 90%). MSM, a sulfur donor, is added because it is necessary for the development of chondroitin sulfates. Vitamin C and manganese are also added since they are required for the production of cartilage and collagen. Vitamin D3 is added since people who suffer from osteoarthritis are often deficient in this nutrient.

Suggested Use: Take 2 to 4 tablets per day, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant. Easy-Solv® tablets disintegrate within several minutes after ingestion.

Notes: Glucosamine Sulfate is a stable, clinically studied form of glucosamine, which is the fundamental building block required for the synthesis of connective tissue subunits (glycosaminoglycans). Glucosamine is an essential building block of proteoglycans, hyaluronic acid (a component of joint lubrication) and glycolipids, and it is essential for the proper formation of tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, bones, skin, nails, and blood vessels.* Joint Builder® glucosamine is naturally water-soluble, and low in molecular weight, thereby offering rapid and high absorption (over 90%). MSM is a sulfur donor; sulfur is essential for the formation of chondroitin sulfates.* Vitamin C and manganese are required for synthesis of collagen and cartilage.* People with osteoarthritis are often deficient in Vitamin D3.*
