Glucosamine is composed of glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine sulfate is naturally found in joint cartilage and synovial fluid, and the body requires it to produce cartilage tissue. Glucosamine helps to maintain flexibility and range of motion in the joints.
Glucosamine is rarely found in food sources but is naturally produced in the joints of the body. Animal studies have found glucosamine can delay the degeneration of cartilage and helps to rebuild it.
