Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar found in joint connective tissue including cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
Glucosamine molecules form microfibers in muscles, ligaments, cartilage and blood vessels.
Joints and cartilage are subject to wear and tear as we age and glucosamine is not found in appreciable amounts in the diet.
