Source Naturals Glucosamine Sulfate 500 mg. 120 Capsules
Source Naturals Sodium-Free Glucosamine Sulfate is a naturally occurring amino sugar. Amino sugars are key constituents of larger compounds called glucosaminoglycans and glycoproteins, which allow cells in tissues to hold together. They are necessary for the construction and maintenance of virtually all connective tissues and lubricating fluids in the body-tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone matrix, skin, joint fluid, intestinal lining, and mucous membranes. Source Naturals Glucosamine Sulfate is complexed with potassium chloride to enhance stability.

Your Body Needs to Make Glucosamine
During the course of normal wear-andtear on the body, connective tissue is constantly broken down, and then replaced or restructured, creating a continuous demand for glucosamine. Since dietary glucosamine is usually low, the body must synthesize it from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Under normal circumstances, the body is able to meet its needs for glucosamine synthesis, but under a variety of less-than-optimal conditions, production of glucosamine – and its assembly into larger GAGs – may be impaired. These conditions include severe
stress, surgery, burns, major injuries, as well as aging.

N-Acetyl Glucosamine Most studies have been conducted with HDH Glucosamine Sulfate; however, another form of glucosamine is also important: N-ACETYL GLUCOSAMINE, or N-A-G™. This is because the body often adds an acetyl group to the glucosamine molecule before it can be used. Source Naturals N-A-G is glucosamine already in its acetylated form. This may be an advantage for some people
because the body’s ability to acetylate molecules can diminish with age or stress. In addition to individual supplements of GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE and N-A-G, Source Naturals includes both forms of glucosamine in GLUCOSAMEND™, an advanced formulation of vitamins, herbs, and other nutrients known to support the reparative process of connective tissue.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
