More details

What is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is a major component of cartilage, particularly present in the fluid around the joints. In studies, glucosamine has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties and even to help regenerating cartilage in some cases.

What is Chondroitin?

Like glucosamine, chondroitin is a natural compound found in healthy cartilage that helps to retain water and therefore keeps the cartilage lubricated. The body makes it naturally, but the production decreases while ageing. A supplement can be taken to compensate for decreased production. In many European countries, it is approved as a treatment for osteoarthritis and several other joint problems.

Benefits for health

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are mostly used for osteoarthritis. Used together, they allow reducing the pain, so that people suffering from osteoarthritis can walk longer without suffering too much.

They notably:

  • help to lubricate joints and promote healthy cartilage,
  • promote joint flexibility and mobility, which facilitate movements without pain.

How to use it?

Glucosamine and Chondroitin works best when used together, that’s why this supplement contains a mix of both.

The daily-recommended dose is 1000 to 1500mg or glucosamine, and 800 to 1200mg of Chondroitin (2 to 3 capsules per day).

Safety / contraindications

Studies have found Glucosamine and Chondroitin to be safe with no significant reported side effects. Some people may experience an upset stomach.
