Assists in relieving osteoarthritic pain. Blackmores Glucosamine Sulfate Complex 1000 gives effective pain relief for osteoarthritis and associated inflammation, and may also help increase joint mobility.
Glucosamine and sulfate are naturally found in the body in cartilage and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a crucial building block of cartilage along with protein, and helps preserve the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. As the body ages it becomes less capable of manufacturing and restoring normal cartilage: supplementation of glucosamine sulfate as glucosamine sulfate sodium chloride complex helps reduce cartilage wear, increases joint mobility and decreases joint stiffness in osteoarthritis (joint degeneration and loss of cartilage). Glucosamine sulfate has also been administered as part of an eight-year study** and is suspected to have a long-term protective effect on cartilage, reducing its wear and slowing progression of osteoarthritis.
Clinical trials have also shown that 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate as sodium chloride complex significantly improves pain and functionality in osteoarthritis.
Results show a decrease in pain of 20-41%, and improved functionality of 21-46%.
Adults – Take 2 easy swallow tablets once a day with a meal or as professionally prescribed.

**An eight-year study on 275 patients, published in 2008, found that supplementation with 1500 mg/day of glucosamine sulfate for at least one year reduced the risk of knee replacement to approximately half that of the placebo group. The same study also found in a sub-group analysis that patients who had previously taken glucosamine sulfate used significantly less medications and health resources for osteoarthritis symptoms.
