Glucosamine is one of the most well-known dietary supplements, with loads of scientific and ancedotal evidence to back its use. I have used Glucosamine personally and can attest to its excellent benefits in my personal case. After years of pain in my knees from lifting heavy weights and the resulting deteriotation of cartilage I used Glucosamine and within about a week and a half to two weeks, I was lifting weights, even doing squats with no pain!
"As a key ingredient in cartilage, glucosamine plays an important role in good joint health. Studies indicate that glucosamine provides the building blocks for constructing cartilage. Our Vegan Glucosamine is perfect for senior citizens, weekend athletes, or anyone desiring extra nutritional support for cartilage and joints. DEVA Glucosamine is great for people with shellfish-allergies who would like to benefit from glucosamine.
Why Glucosamine HCl? , read below:
HCL vs Glucosamine Sulphate:
Stability: Glucosamine and glucosamine sulphate degrade easily, especially if damp. To try to overcome this manufacturers add either sodium or potassium chloride, in addition to the sulphate. This means that over two fifths (40%) of its weight may be made up of additives. To prevent further destruction, vitamin C can be added as a preservative and calcium carbonate as a desiccant. Some glucosamine sulphate preparations claim to be salt free when in fact they are actually SODIUM free. They still contain up to 25% potassium chloride. If they did not, they would degrade rapidly into a black mush. On the other hand glucosamine hydrochloride is naturally stable and requires no added salt or other preservatives.
Purity: Pure glucosamine sulphate can have as little as 59% 'active' glucosamine because of the chemically added sulphate and salt, whilst pure Glucosamine hydrochloride has up to 88%. DEVA Vegan Glucosamine hydrochloride mg for mg, can contain up to a third more active glucosamine.
Where does glucosamine come from? Glucosamine sulphate is manufactured from glucosamine hydrochloride. Glucosamine hydrochloride can be obtained from any source of cartilage, commonly beef, chicken, pig, shark, clams, shrimp or even whale. Chondroitin can also obtained from these sources, and there are no plant altematives. DEVA Nutrition has specifically chosen an alternative source : corn, thus making its glucosamine 100% animal-free.
Why choose DEVA's Glucosamine hydrochloride? Glucosamine is readily absorbed by the body and into cartilage. Glucosamine sulphate is converted by stomach acid into the hydrochloride before absorption. Scientific research has shown that glucosamine hydrochloride is used by cartilage . A true mg to mg comparison shows that the hydrochloride provides more glucosamine than the sulphate salt and this may be the reason why some people prefer to choose glucosamine hydrochloride.
DIRECTIONS: For adults, take one (1) tablet two-three times daily, preferably with a meal, or as directed by a doctor, or health care professional.
