REPAIR AND PREVENT CARTILAGE DAMAGE
Each Enerex VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE contains a high potency of 1,500 mg per tablet, the proven medicinal amount needed to help your body repair and prevent damage to cartilage in your joints from wear and tear, disease such as arthritis, or sports activities or injury. This product is made from non-GMO corn starch so those with a shellfish allergy can comfortably use it.
Freedom and Flexibility
VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE is an important compound to keep your joints and vertebrae moving smoothly and easily, and therefore a deficiency can bring a host of issues. VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE helps maintain the lubrication and thickness of the cartilage to provide support needed. As a building block, it helps to rejuvenate worn tissue if damaged and is also used in the development of ligaments and tendons.
This product is easily absorbed and may help avert deficiencies or shortages in the body. Providing Glucosamine can help keep your joints and bones strong. This vegetable source product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and is equally effective in its action compared to animal sources.
My aching joints!
Nowhere is the aging process felt as evidently as in your connective tissue, particularly in your joints. According to Canadian statistics, nearly 16 percent of the population aged 20 years and over is now affected by arthritis — which is a dramatic increase.
Although you may think that you have a lot in common with others your age who have aching and creaking joints, your joint pain is unique to you: your susceptibility due to your heredity, your past and current injuries, your metabolism which influences how inflammation develops and is managed in your body, influence of your lifestyle, and the amount of acidity in your body.
There is no cure, and those drugs that are currently used have many unwanted side effects — so it is best to try to prevent it. (There is evidence that long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs actually accelerate joint destruction in patients with osteoarthritis by interfering with the body's healing mechanism.) Thankfully, arthritis and other degeneration conditions don’t happen overnight so you have plenty of time to take steps to offset the disease, or at least stop it from progressing.
Natural remedies including VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE have been used for centuries to both prevent and repair the damage.
What is Glucosamine?
Your body makes small amounts of natural Glucosamine, concentrated in joint cartilage.
Glucosamine is a combination of glucose (a sugar) and an amino acid (part of protein). In joints, Glucosamine is found in structures known as proteoglycans. These proteoglycans work to attract water into the joint area to lubricate the cartilage during movement, and that’s where Glucosamine is believed to play a role in cartilage formation and repair. It may protect joints and tendons from injury and decrease inflammation in these areas and in cartilage. Glucosamine increases the thickness of the gelatinous material, creating more support for the joints and vertebrae.
VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE is not an analgesic (numbing pain) or an anti-inflammatory (artificially reducing the body’s healing response). Rather, it appears to halt the disease process. Improvements occur more slowly with VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE than with over-the-counter arthritis medications (NSAIDs). This is true for all healing – which takes patience, time, and nurturing of the body – yet eventually, Glucosamine overtakes the NSAIDs in terms of effectiveness.
Enerex VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE's vegan formula provides the proven medicinal amount of 1500 mg of GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE needed to repair and prevent cartilage damage — and it’s all in one convenient tablet taken once per day. Our VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE is a tasteless and water-soluble nutrient which is virtually free of side effects and contra-indications. Having a relatively small molecular weight of 211, it is readily absorbed from the intestines and stays in the blood for several hours.
The benefits of Glucosamine supplements are backed by over 300 scientific studies, according to Dr. J.E. Pizzorno and Dr. M.T. Murray, editors of the Textbook of Natural Medicine, 2013. Research shows that GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE may play a role in reversing osteoarthritis (Lancet, 2001) (Arthritis Rheum. 2007), protecting joints and tendons from injury, and decreasing pain and inflammation in joints and tendons, (Journal of Leukocyte Biology, 2002).
The Enerex Advantage
Where does GLS come from? Nearly all GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE supplements are created using chemically extracted crustacean by-products (from the processed exoskeleton, or outer shell, of shrimp, lobster, and crab), and then processed to change its nature. This form can cause mild to severe allergic reactions for some people.
In recognition of this problem, Enerex VEGAN GLUCOSAMINE is produced using non-GMO corn starch so that those who suffer from seafood allergies or those who do not eat animal foods can use this product. It may also be better absorbed and used by the body, and therefore have more effect that GLS made from animal sources.
How long will it take to notice effects? Many people experience benefits in the first three months after taking Glucosamine.
