Studies have shown that glucosamine has inflammatory response and chondroprotective properties (substances that protect articular cartilage) and supports the synthesis of cartilage tissue and inhibits cartilage degradation from wearing out.* Glucosamine is essential to produce proteoglycans, hyaluronic acid, and mucopolysaccharides, which are compounds necessary for healthy joint tissue and cartilage.
MSM is a rich source of sulfur, an important part in supporting healthy tissues. This includes promoting growth of hair, skin, and nails, and supporting joint health by promoting the body’s ability to synthesize collagen for connective tissue health and cell membrane flexibility.*
Studies have shown that glucosamine has a synergistic effect when combined with either MSM and chitosan in bioavailability, absorption, and performance.
