Glucosamine helps support healthy joints and healthy cartilage. Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body and is a building block for healthy cartilage and connective tissue. Supplemental glucosamine helps stimulate the manufacture of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), key components of cartilage that give it shock-absorbing qualities. Research has shown that supplemental glucosamine can help reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Glucosamine can also help lessen stiffness, tenderness, and swelling as well as support increased joint performance.2,3 Kirkland Signature™ Glucosamine Sulfate is dosed at 750 mg per capsule and only 2 capsules per day are needed to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis and protect against cartilage deterioration.
