Solgar Glucosamine MSM Complex (Shellfish-Free) contributes 1246 mg of Glucosamine, 1000mg of MSM and 100mg of Vitamin C.
Glucosamine MSM Complex is an advanced formulation that provides the key raw materials for cartilage support. Both the glucosamine and MSM are derived from vegetable sources, making it suitable for vegans and those with shellfish allergies. MSM is a source of organic sulphur, which is important for the formation of collagen, a strong fibrous protein that forms a flexible matrix - the foundation of cartilage tissue. MSM is therefore necessary for cartilage integrity and is an important factor in flexibility and suppleness.
Glucosamine provides raw material for the production of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), important structural components of cartilage. An increase in glucosamine in the diet correlates to an increase in the production of glycosaminoglycans with subsequent increased water retention in the cartilage matrix (water retention is key to the cushioning properties of cartilage). The addition of vitamin C, manganese, white willow extract and ginger extract further enhance the cartilage supportive properties of this formula.
The well-documented benefits of glucosamine, combined with the synergistic action of MSM, vitamin C, manganese, white willow and ginger extracts makes this complex the ideal choice for anyone looking to support suppleness and flexibility, especially amongst vegetarians, vegans and those with shellfish allergies.
