Are you one of the 30 million adults with joint concerns?

Roughly 1 out of every 5 adults in the US has concerns about joint comfort.
These concerns increase with age and tend to be more prevalent in women than men.1

These concerns increase with age and tend to be more prevalent in women than men.1 Additional risk factors include joint injury or overuse,
occupational exposure, genetics, and obesity. Occasional joint flare-ups can also occur in otherwise healthy adults in response to exercise.

Joint health is best managed with a multi-faceted approach including joint-friendly exercise, maintaining a healthy weight,
and nourishing your joints from within with specialized supplements.**

Joint Health: The Basics

A joint is the area where two bones and their respective connective tissues come together. With there being 206 bones in the adult body, you can imagine there are also a lot of joints. Some of these joints are fixed in place or only offer slight movement such as where the bones of the pelvis have fused together.

However, the most common type of joints in the body are movable joints. There are many types of synovial joints and their structure
dictates their type of movement. The ball-and-socket joint of the shoulder allows rotation in many directions whereas the hinge joint
of the elbow bends and straightens the arm in one direction.

Getting to Know Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a compound found in nearly all human tissues, especially connective tissue. The highest concentrations of glucosamine in the human body are found in cartilage.2 Glucosamine is used by cartilage cells to create structural components found in the joint capsule.** This complex system is responsible for cushioning joints and bones and providing shock absorption.**

Glucosamine is especially good for anyone seeking extra nutritional support for joints and connective tissue.** As a key structural component in cartilage, it helps maintain the health of your joint cartilage.** By doing so, glucosamine supports your joints’ natural ability to properly absorb outside forces.** The cartilage and joint support system promotes flexibility and mobility of joints for comfortable movement.**

The Science Behind Glucosamine

Glucosamine is one of the most scientifically studied supplements for joint health.**

It has been investigated in more than 20 well-designed human studies involving over 2,500 subjects2 and continues to be studied. In these studies, glucosamine has been well tolerated2 and has been shown to be effective at promoting joint comfort.**

Glucosamine is available in many different forms including glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride. Glucosamine sulfate has been shown to be well absorbed from the human digestive tract.3 There is scientific evidence to suggest that these two forms of glucosamine are equally effective when taken as dietary supplements.4,5

Joint Health FAQs

Q. What is glucosamine good for?

A. Glucosamine contributes to joint health.** It is a key structural component in cartilage and, as a dietary supplement, it plays an important role in the maintenance of joint cartilage.** Supplementing with 1500 mg of glucosamine a day nourishes joints for comfortable movement. It also supports mobility and flexibility so you can go about your day with ease.** Glucosamine supplements are the nutritional way to help strengthen your joints.**

Q. Where does glucosamine come from?

A. The most common source of glucosamine used in dietary supplements is shellfish. The hard exoskeletons of crustaceans such as crabs and shrimp contain a substance called chitin. Chitin is a rich source of glucosamine and acts as the starting material for many dietary supplements. Glucosamine can also be found in the cell walls of plants and fungi, making shellfish-free forms of glucosamine available.

Q. Who should take glucosamine?

A. Glucosamine is the ideal supplement for anyone looking for extra nutritional support for cartilage and joints.** This could mean anyone from competitive athletes to laid-back retirees. Those with occupations that require long periods of standing, walking long distances, or a heavy physical work load are especially good candidates as these can cause stress on joints. Joints are responsible for movements so taking care of them is important to keep moving.

Staying active is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Whether you want to take care of your joints to ensure you can continue enjoying leisurely walks or rigorous exercise, glucosamine supplements deliver the nutritional support you need.**

If you are already concerned about your joint health, glucosamine can help ease occasional joint stress and stiffness which may be due to the natural aging process.** But you do not have to wait until you start experiencing occasional joint flare-ups to start supplementing with glucosamine.** People with healthy joints can be proactive by supplementing with glucosamine to promote healthy cartilage maintenance.**

Q. Why do I need to supplement with glucosamine?

A. Although glucosamine is naturally produced by the body, levels of glucosamine may decline with age. There are no major food sources of glucosamine so it is challenging to get in your daily diet without the help from supplementation.

Q. Can glucosamine be taken long-term?

A. Glucosamine provides joint support for the long-term.** As a dietary supplement, this product is intended to be taken every day to nourish your joints from within.** Knowing all Puritan’s Pride® Glucosamine products are drug-free is something you can feel good about taking every day, even for the long-term.

Glucosamine supplements work best when incorporated into an overall, long-term joint health program.** Participating in low-impact exercise is an excellent way to move your joints and increase blood flow to that area. Walking, swimming and yoga are all great options with benefits for your overall health. Daily stretching is highly encouraged and a gentle stretch first thing in the morning can be a great way to start your day.

Q. How does chondroitin work?

A. Chondroitin sulfate is naturally found in the connective tissue of joints. Its special structure attracts water, which promotes water retention within the connective tissue.** This water retention is helpful because it supports joint flexibility and cushion the joints.**

Chondroitin also works with enzymes involved in cartilage maintenance.** Enzymes are substances that help to carry out a specific reaction. The way chondroitin interacts with these enzymes helps to maintain a healthy balance to maintain cartilage health.**

Q. How much chondroitin should I take?

A. Between 800 and 1,2000 mg of chondroitin is recommended for optimal joint health benefits.** Please read all product labels and take as directed for best results.

Health Myths
Myth: Exercise is bad for my joint health.

Physical activity can actually improve joint comfort as well as joint function and quality of life. Strengthening the muscles around a joint help to stabilize the joint itself, improving joint comfort. Incorporate weights, resistance bands, and calisthenics into your exercise routine at least two days a week. Flexibility training such as yoga and stretching should be performed daily to maintain range of motion. Low-impact aerobic activities such as walking, cycling, swimming and light gardening can all be joint friendly and heart healthy. Before starting an exercise program, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional on the level and intensity of exercise appropriate for you.

Myth: I only need to take glucosamine when I have a flare-up.

Glucosamine is a nutrient that nourishes your joints from within.** As such, it needs to be consumed on a regular basis. Just as you would take a multivitamin every day to ensure your body is getting all the vitamins and minerals it needs, glucosamine should be taken daily to deliver nutrition to your joints.** If you wait for an occasional joint flare-up to supplement with glucosamine, you would not be getting the full benefits of this important ingredient. Taking glucosamine regularly helps to nourish and strengthen your joints.**

Myth: Glucosamine is naturally found in the body so I don’t need to supplement.

While it’s true that glucosamine is naturally found in the body, this does not mean that supplementation is not beneficial. There are many nutrients produced in the body that can still provide benefits in dietary supplements. For example, vitamin D is produced in the body when the sun is exposed to sunlight. Despite this, taking vitamin D as a supplement can contribute to obtaining optimal levels of this important nutrient. Even if you do not choose to supplement with vitamin D, there are food sources of vitamin D available in the diet such as eggs and fortified milk. Unfortunately, there are no major dietary sources of glucosamine, making supplements even more important.

Myth: I don’t need to take glucosamine if I eat shellfish.

There are no major food sources of glucosamine. Although glucosamine can be sourced from shellfish, it comes from the hard outer shell and not the part you eat. By supplementing with Puritan’s Pride® glucosamine products, you can be sure you are getting an efficacious dose of this important nutrient to protect your joints.**

Myth: People with shellfish allergies cannot take glucosamine

It is true that most of the glucosamine in dietary supplements is sourced from shellfish. However, shellfish is not the only source of glucosamine available. Glucosamine can also be found in the cell walls of plants and can be extracted to make supplements. Puritan’s Pride® offers a shellfish-free glucosamine that is sourced from corn. Vegetarians and anyone else looking to avoid shellfish can still reap all the benefits of glucosamine by choosing a shellfish-free version. Anyone with a shellfish allergy is advised to carefully read product labels before purchasing.

Myth: Glucosamine is for runners and athletes.

Repetitive movements performed in certain sports such as running may cause wear and tear on the joints, especially if performed consistently with bad form. Glucosamine may be a particularly good choice for active individuals who are looking to proactively care for their joints.** But that doesn’t mean it is only intended for the elite athlete. Glucosamine is ideal for anyone looking for a little extra joint support.** Whether it be daily walks or just running errands, nurturing our joints is important for everyone so we all can continue doing the things we love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for joints! I have been taking this product for many years. It seems to eliminate the popping and creaking/cracking noises I used to have in my ankles and knees when I exercised. I believe that what is stated in the description of this product is accurate. I can't say it will help everyone, but it seems to help me, so I continue to take one capsule once a day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong product for me. I have been a very satisfied user of Puritan Pride products for many years. Notably Glucosamine Hydrochroride (HCl) with Chondroitin and MSM. Recently I tried Glucosamine Sulfate, without the Chrondroitin or MSM, on the advice of a friend. It was a disaster for me. It may work for others, but it was a failure for me, and I had real joint pain. I have no idea about the quality of the product, and assume it is good like all other Puritan products I have used over the years-- but it simply didn't work for me. I am back on my Puritan Pride Glucosamine HCl with Chondroitin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The body's "chassis lube." Considering glucosamine is the natural human joint lubrication of which age diminishes production, for those like myself unwilling to give up a physically active life, using this product is good sense. How can it taken orally get to all it's internal destinations? Your doctor can explain, as it's not simple, but neither is the human body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glucosamine Sulfategood product but wrong dosage I would like to see the capsules in amounts of 750mg as most doctors prescribe 1500mg per day taken half in morning half in the evening. Personally I don't like to take dosages that exceed the recommendation of the physician...making my body work to excrete the extra. Also, over time the cost of 25% more than I want does add up. I AM thankful that you offer Glucosamine Sulfate as many supplement providers only offer the product with chondroitin...considiered by many physicians to take away the efficacy of the glucosamine by reducing the true dosage...and it has no clear benefit.
