Glucosamine is an essential substrate for the formation of glycoaminoglycans (GAG's) and proteoglycans‚ which are the main components of cartilage tissue. GAG's and proteoglycans trap and hold water‚ forming a dense fluid cushion within the joint and thus‚ provide lubrication and shock absorption. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur‚ a mineral necessary for the production of proteoglycans. NOW's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians‚ because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.
