Repair and Prevent Cartilage Damage
Each Enerex Vegan Glucosamine 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.
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.
VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE is not an analgesic (numbing pain) or an anti-inflammatory (artificially reducing the body’s healing response). Rather, it appears to halt the disease process. Improvements occur more slowly with VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE than with over-the-counter arthritis medications (NSAIDs). This is true for all healing – which takes patience, time, and nurturing of the body – yet eventually, Glucosamine overtakes the NSAIDs in terms of effectiveness.
