NOW Glucosamine & MSM 120VEG
NOW Glucosamine & MSM
Helps to relieve osteoarthritic pain and reduce joint pain. A factor in the building of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and MSM are two of the best known natural products to combat arthritic symptoms, but vegans have limited access to most products as glucosamine is primarily sourced from shellfish and many products have animal-source gelatin capsules. This product is especially designed for vegetarians and vegans.
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. The Glucosamine used in this product is derived from Non-GE(Non-Genetically Engineered) corn source. Now Foods is a leading expert in naturaljoint care and developed the glucosamine test method chosen as the official AOAC industry standard method.
