Each Enerex Vegan Glucosamine Sulfate contains a high potency of 1,500 mg per tablet, a proven medicinal amount needed to help your body repair and prevent damage to cartilage in your joints from wear and tear, disease such as arthritis, or sports activities or injury. This product is made from non-GMO corn starch so those with a shellfish allergy can comfortably use it.
Your body makes small amounts of natural Glucosamine, concentrated in joint cartilage. Glucosamine is a combination of glucose (a sugar) and an amino acid (part of protein). In joints, Glucosamine is found in structures known as proteoglycans. These proteoglycans work to attract water into the joint area to lubricate the cartilage during movement, and that’s where Glucosamine is believed to play a role in cartilage formation and repair. It may protect joints and tendons from injury, and decrease inflammation in these areas and in cartilage. Glucosamine increases the thickness of the gelatinous material, creating more support for the joints and vertebrae.
Enerex Glucosamine Sulfate’s (GLS) vegan formula provides the proven medicinal amount of 1500 mg of Glucosamine Sulfate needed to repair and prevent cartilage damage — and it’s all in one convenient tablet taken once per day. Our Glucosamine Sulfate is a tasteless and water soluble nutrient which is virtually free of side effects and contra-indications. Having a relatively small molecular weight of 211, it is readily absorbed from the intestines and stays in the blood for several hours.
The benefits of Glucosamine supplements are backed by over 300 scientific studies, according to Dr. J.E. Pizzorno and Dr. M.T. Murray, editors of the Textbook of Natural Medicine, 2013. Research shows that Glucosamine Sulfate may play a role in reversing osteoarthritis (Lancet, 2001) (Arthritis Rheum. 2007), protecting joints and tendons from injury, and decreasing pain and inflammation in joints and tendons, (Journal of Leukocyte Biology, 2002).
Where does GLS come from?
Nearly all Glucosamine Sulfate supplements are created using chemically extracted crustacean by-products (from the processed exoskeleton, or outer shell, of shrimp, lobster, and crab), and then processed to change its nature. This form can cause mild to severe allergic reactions for some people.
In recognition of this problem, Enerex vegan Glucosamine Sulfate is produced using non-GMO corn starch so that those who suffer from seafood allergies or those who do not eat animal foods can use this product. It may also be better absorbed and used by the body, and therefore have more effect that GLS made from animal sources.
How long will it take to notice effects?
Many people experience benefits in the first three months after taking Glucosamine.
