Glucosamine and chondroitin are two of the most popular ingredients for joint health.**

That is why Puritan’s Pride® has combined them in one formula for your convenience. Just two daily caplets deliver 1,500 mg of glucosamine HCl and 1,200 mg of chondroitin sulfate for those looking for the full benefits of both these sought-after ingredients.

We know staying active is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and at Puritan’s Pride® we want to help you care for your joints so you can stay on the move. One way to do that is with joint supplements featuring a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin. Both are naturally found within our joints where they are part of the complex connective tissue structure that is responsible for cushioning joints.**

Glucosamine and chondroitin work together to support the structural framework of your joints to help support joint comfort.** Plus, this formula contains the potent antioxidant vitamin C which is also beneficial for joint health.**

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 moveable 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


Chondroitin

Between 800 and 1,2000 mg of chondroitin is recommended for optimal joint health benefits.**

Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally-occurring nutrient found in various types of connective tissue such as cartilage, bone, ligaments and tendons.1 The structure of chondroitin sulfate causes it to attract water which is good news for your joints. Pulling water into the connective tissues supports joint flexibility and cushions joints.**

Much like many structures in the body, cartilage is continuously being broken down and replaced by new cartilage.2 hondroitin works with enzymes involved in this process to promote a healthy balance, thereby maintaining joint cartilage.** Furthermore, chondroitin sulfate provides the building blocks for larger molecules that make up joint cartilage to help renew cartilage.**

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 2 out of 5 by from Pills are too fat The size of the pill isn't really shown properly on the website. Yes the pill is one inch long. However, what is not shown is the thickness of the pill which is way fatter than any other pills which I have ever taken. I have taken many different pills in my life, but have never had any problems swallowing them until I tried these. The are not only difficult to get down your throat but are difficult to get down your esophagus. I have taken other glucosomine choindroitin of this strength from other manufacturers but they weren't as fat. Perhaps Puritan Pride should not add the additional items and cut the fillers in the pill so that they will be slightly narrower and easier to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Have been using this product for 17 years. Puritans Pride made it unavailable for approximately 8 months, but I found another source at Amazon that was cheaper and available. However, it was not the exact same thing even though the ingredients were the same. I have now changed back to PP as I wanted the exact product I had used all these years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, better than the powders that contain too much sugar in them I've recently bought a powder which you mix with water with similar contents of the Glucosamine/Chondroitin. This beats it hand down because there is no taste, there's nowhere near as much sugar in it and it is much easier to take.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well for me - please don't change! Benn using this product for years. I'm 60. I have a weak left knee from a couple old minor knee injuries. Used to flare up every couple months and cause me to favor it even walking. Doesn't do that anymore. Also, I am sensitive to the dyes that are in more things than you care to name. This product has no Red, Yellow, or Blue dyes. Some of the other Puritan's Pride pills do. I don't know why petroleum based dyes are added to pills. No one buys them for the 'pretty colors'. Please don't add any color to these. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the correct label shown above! This is the first product to get a problem from. The product I received is not "Triple Strength" as shown above and have been getting for the past 5 years! Mine says "Joint Support Formula" at the top and has 3 added ingredients that are really not needed. They are VitC, Manganese Sulfate, and Boron. This being the second time now to get a mislabeled product, I am not as confident to order from here with ease. If you are taking prescription meds, this is NOT a smart practice to switch and send whatever they feel like!
Date published: 2012-01-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but works well! This product works for me, where one combo PP product, with MSM in it, did not work. Along with this I take MSM 500mg, #2307, and believe the MSM necessary for good results. This #41633 product is $34 + the MSM, where one PP combo product, #44529, is $8. I'll try that one next time.
