Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance that helps develop and renew cartilage (the hard connective tissue mainly located on bones near joints in the body), and keep it lubricated for better joint movement and flexibility.

Chondroitin helps the body maintain fluid and flexibility in the joints.

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are the building blocks for cartilage and stimulate the body to make more cartilage. Together they help protect and rebuild damaged cartilage.

MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is needed by the body for healthy connective tissue and joint function. MSM fights inflammation by enhancing the body’s own anti-inflammatory control system and accelerates healing.

Warnings and Precautions:

People with diabetes should use caution when taking glucosamine because it may raise blood sugar. People taking blood-thinning medication (anticoagulants) should check with their doctors before taking glucosamine and chondroitin. People who are allergic to shellfish also should consult their doctors before using glucosamine and chondroitin. Glucosamine is extracted from a substance in shellfish.

The effects of these supplements on a growing child or developing baby are not yet known. For that reason, glucosamine and chondroitin are not recommended for children, women who are pregnant, women who are nursing, and women who could become pregnant.


Follow all directions on the product package, or take as directed by your doctor. Do not take more than the recommended dosage. If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
