VEGESAMINE 500MG, Vegetarian Glucosamine, 60 CAPSULES,


Product Details:

There are two common Glucosamine products in the market, Glucosamine HCl and Glucosamine Sulfate - both are derived from either shellfish (shrimp, crab and lobster) or from vegetable matter. Glucosamine derived from vegetable matter is far superior to the shellfish-derived version in terms of safety, purity, efficacy, and potency. Glucosamine derived from shellfish often contains hormones & other impurities. It causes severe reactions in those who are allergic to shellfish.

Glucosamine HCl is more than 99 % pure. On the other hand, Glucosamine Sulfate is only 80 % pure with the remaining 20% being sodium or potassium sulfate. Glucosamine in its pure form contains all the necessary components to repair & maintain healthy cartilage and joint functions. Glucosamine HCl delivers 83.1% bio-active glucosamine while Glucosamine Sulfate supplies only 62.8% bio-active glucosamine. Setnikar L, et al. Pharmacokinetics of Glucosamine in man, 1993.

Dr. Jason Theodosakis, MD, author of "The Arthritis Cure" states:
"The rumor is that Glucosamine Sulfate is the only form that beneficially affects cartilage. This is absolutely incorrect. Glucosamine HCl is actually more potent & effective gram for gram since there is more pure glucosamine per unit weight in the HCl form. Besides, most of the glucosamine sold as sulfate is probably Glucosamine HCl anyway (with added sulfate, such as potassium sulfate)."

21ST Century VEGESAMINE contains Glucosamine HCl500 mg in each vegetarian capsule. VEGESAMINE is made from CORN with more than 99% purity. It is not made from shellfish.

21ST Century VEGESAMINE with 21ST Century CHONDROITIN SULPHATE work effectively together for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
