|Glucosamine’s reputation for providing safe, effective joint and cartilage support is irrefutable. To date, it has been used by tens of millions of individuals who live with joint discomfort associated with normal aging and physical activity. There have been hundreds of studies conducted showcasing its beneficial effects, and its history of safety and effectiveness remains predominantly unquestioned within the scientific community.* Unfortunately, many individuals have been unable to supplement with Glucosamine on account of certain food allergies and/or dietary choices. |
Traditional Glucosamine products are derived from shellfish, which has resulted in many individuals never having the opportunity to experience its benefits. One of the most exciting recent developments in the field of Glucosamine science is the availability of vegetarian sources. This new technology is finally making it possible for vegetarians and those who avoid shellfish to reap the well-documented beneficial effects of glucosamine. Our partnership with Ethical Naturals has led to the development of our latest Glucosamine product.
NOW® Vegetarian Glucosamine ‘1000’ contains GreenGrown™ Glucosamine HCl, a 100% vegetable-sourced glucosamine that contains no aquaculture byproducts. This unique, effective form of Glucosamine is produced through a proprietary process of non-GMO corn fermentation, with further refinement to attain the highest levels of purity. Unlike traditional Glucosamine, this innovative vegetarian source is derived from corn, making it a perfectly suitable option for those wishing to avoid shellfish and their byproducts. Every batch of GreenGrown™ used in NOW® Vegetarian Glucosamine is guaranteed to be free of pesticides, and manufactured to meet the highest USP grade purity requirements for Glucosamine. Each 2-Vcap® serving provides 2,000 mg of Glucosamine HCI.
NOW continues to be recognized as the natural product industry’s foremost leader in the area of glucosamine method development and analytical testing. Our scientists were honored in 2004 for developing the AOAC First Action Official MethodSM for Glucosamine, as published in the July/August 2005 issue of the Journal of AOAC International. We continue to apply the most cutting edge science in order to improve upon our own Glucosamine products. In doing so, we have been able to introduce a number of innovative Glucosamine-based products over the past few years. This new 100% natural vegetarian product not only meets our strict quality standards, it is also in perfect alignment with our stance on environmental sustainability.
