Why Pharma Nord Bio-Glucosamine Super:
Bio-Glucosamine helps to maintain healthy joints and supports catilage and bones. Joint tissues are susceptible to damage as a result of work-related repetitive movements, lifting heavy weights, participation in sports, or as a consequence of the normal ageing process.
Glucosamine is used within the body to form more complex molecules (proteoglycans) necessary for the maintenance and repair of joint cartilage and related issues (ligaments, tendons). Glucosamine increases proteoglycan synthesis in cartilage cells (chondrocytes), as well as inhibiting the action of the enzymes normally responsible for the degradation of cartilage.
Pharma Nord recommends 3 Glucosamine capsules to be taken daily with meals.
