Glucosamine is an amino sugar and one of the main precursors of glycosylated protein and lipid synthesis. It is one of the major components of the shell of shellfish and mushrooms, and of the articular cartilage in humans. Cartilage is a soft tissue that facilitates the movement of joints and prevents inflammation and joint pain due to bones rubbing together. The way glucosamine is shaped, allows it to attract and retain a lot of water, which is essential to nourish and lubricate joints. Age, injuries and diseases reduce the amount of glucosamine in cartilage. Supplement integration helps reduce these deficiencies.
