Glucosamine S 500mg

Glucosamine Sulphate Food Supplement

Water soluble substance naturally present in connective tissue of the body and in cartilage.

 

Gucosamine is one of the most abundantly present water soluble amino monosaccharide in the human body. It is also present in the hexoskeleton of crustaceans and arthropods, and in the cell walls of mushrooms.

In the human body, glucosamine is concentrated in abundant quantities in joint cartilage, since it is a constituent of glycosaminoglycans (GAG), in cartilage matrix and in synovial fluid.

Glucosamine seems to play an important role in the regulation of anabolic processes of cartilage, and in the synthesis of synovial fluid, besides having the capacity to inhibit degenerative and catabolic processes that characterise osteoarthrosis. It has antioxidant properties and an excellent safety profile.

Recently, dermatological scientific research identified in glucosamine a potential tool to prevent and fight skin ageing.

Insights

Glucosamine is one of the structural building blocks of glycosaminoglycans and of other macromolecules that form the extracellular matrix of connective tissue.

Besides reducing pain and joint stiffness, glucosamine can reduce to a minimum the loss of cartilage, particularly in osteoarthrosis.

Moreover, it is an important precursor of hyaluronic acid, a compound that can preserve hydration and skin elasticity. Scientific studies report the capacity to accelerate skin cicatrisation, improve hydration and reduce wrinkles.

Furthermore, as inhibitor of tyrosinase activation, it can prevent the production of melanin; therefore, it could be used for hyperpigmentation disorders.

This compound also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that are implemented by modulating the Nuclear Factor-kB (NF-kB), a factor that controls the production of inflammatory cytokines and cellular survival.
