About the Glucosamine Content in Joint Juice
The supplemental glucosamine in all of Joint Juice's products comes from 100 percent vegetable-sources and is made in the United States. Many other glucosamine supplements on the market are derived from the shells of shellfish. Joint Juice Fitness is 100% shellfish free and delivers a full day's supply of glucosamine in every bottle.
1500 mg of glucosamine per day is the amount shown in some studies to increase joint function and mobility.* Glucosamine works in several ways to keep cartilage (the shock absorber in joints) hydrated and functioning properly.* Glucosamine is a building block of the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that are responsible for the water binding capability of cartilage and are necessary for cushioning and movement.* Glucosamine stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid (the lubricating solution in joints and other tissues).*
