Specific Weight Information
L-Glucosamine (HCL): 3600mg
During Glucosamine studies, test persons will normally receive 1,500 mg (1/4 to ½ teaspoon) of glucosamine in an average serving. Warning: Persons who take blood-thinning medication should always discuss their glucosamine dosage with their healthcare professional.
Note: these measurements display the amount of milligrams per amino equivalent to a 5mL metric teaspoon. Powders are loosely filled, levelled but not compacted.
Glucosamine hydrochloride vs. Glucosamine sulfate
For a number of reasons, glucosamine hydrochloride is often preferred to glucosamine sulfate. The hydrochloride form is more concentrated and contains substantially less sodium per effective dose than the sulfate form (the sulfate form is stabilised with sodium chloride (table salt) and can contain as much as 30% sodium). This is an important factor to consider for those who want to reduce their dietary intake of sodium.
The body doesn’t discriminate between one form of glucosamine or another, as long as it is bioavailable. Glucosamine hydrochloride will offer the promise of the same efficacy as glucosamine sulfate, since glucosamine is not absorbed intact with its carrier.
Some HealthWise® powders are slightly hygroscopic (they retain moisture) and this can result in clumping. Any clumps can be broken apart with a spoon before taking or dissolved in water.
