Jarrow Glucosamine Mega 1000mg, 100 tabs


Glucosamines are chemically classified as amino sugars, which are molecules synthesized from sugars and amino acids. Most amino sugars found in our body are obtained by de novo (internal) production. In the case of glucosamine, the enzyme glucosamine synthetase combines glucose and glutamine to form glucosamine. Amino sugars are also commonly called proteoglycans.

Glucosamine is an aminosaccharide synthesized by transamidase enzymes from glucose and an amine group from glutamine. HCI (hydrochloric acid) stabilizes the glucosime in this product. Glucosamine is a component of joint and intestinal tissue and is involved in the production of synovial fluid which lubricates the joints. Glucosamine is converted to N-acetyl-glucosamine in the intestines by the goblet cells.

Glucosamine Mega 1000 is best taken with BioSil™, the only high potency source of orthosilicic acid, the biologically active form of silicon.
