Glucosamine & MSM Vegetarian - 120 Vcaps
 

Glucosamine is an essential substrate for the formation of glycoaminoglycans (GAG's) and proteoglycans, which are the main components of cartilage tissue.  GAG's and proteoglycans trap and hold water, forming a dense fluid cushion within the joint and thus, provide lubrication and shock absorption. 

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production of proteoglycans.  NOW's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.


Vegetarian glucosamine works the same as glucosamine produced from animal source. The glucosamine is a vital supplement to maintaining health joints. This substance naturally occurs in the human body. The body uses it to construct cartilages and bones throughout the physical structure. When the body sustains damages to the joints, taking this product will help repair the damage while also alleviating the pain and swelling.

It is perfect for anyone who wants to maintain his or her joint heath. For those that may be allergic to seafood, this form of glucosamine is a safe way to get the supplements without risking an allergic reaction. NOW Vegetarian glucosamine is perfect for vegans, vegetarians or people with shellfish allergies who would also like to benefit from glucosamine.


Glucosamine is a common building block throughout nature, that is why it is possible to derive from plant sources as well as animal sources. The main source for glucosamine comes from animal by products produced from the slaughter and harvesting actions. Vegetarian glucosamine is no different from that comes from animal sources in concern of function.

It provides the same benefits and assistance that animal sources do. Glucosamine has been shown to help rebuild and repair human cartilage. It is therefore a base ingredient used in supplements for joint health
.


MSM is gaining a lot of attention due to the recent focus on longevity and anti-aging effects. MSM is necessary for collagen production, as it works together with Vitamin C to build new, healthy tissues. Sagging skin and wrinkles, as well as dry, cracked skin are all developed through a loss of collagen, and MSM can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health. It is well known to strengthen hair, skin, and nails. Research has shown that MSM is highly effective in improving joint flexibility.
