Glucosamine Sulfate, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a well-absorbed source of glucosamine, an
important precursor for the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissues. †
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in glycosaminoglycans, integral components of the
proteoglycans found in joint cartilage. Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate rich structures that provide
resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive and lubricating properties to joints and connective
tissues. The availability of glucosamine is an integral part of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and
proteoglycans that are necessary during the constant remodeling that aging cartilage undergoes. Thus, the
maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced deposition of glycosaminoglycans and
Dietary glucosamine serves as an immediate precursor for glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and also stimulates
incorporation of other precursors into the connective tissue matrix. Bioavailability of oral glucosamine sulfate is
excellent. It is absorbed intact, and utilized very quickly by all tissues, including connective tissues.
Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used for connective tissue metabolism than other glucosamine sources,
such as cartilage extracts or chondroitin sulfate. In summary, glucosamine sulfate is a well-recognized, highly
effective source of glucosamine for glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues,
such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone.
Glucosamine Sulfate capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to support the
structure and function of the body’s connective tissues, such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and skin.
