Glucosamine sulphate is traditionally used for building cartilage and maintaining joint mobility, and for helping to relieve joint pain.
It’s a natural substance made from the exoskeletons of marine crustacea.
Studies have shhown it works synergistically with herbal joint anti-inflammatories to provide even greater joint pain relief, which is why it is included in our arthritis support blends for horses (Arthro-Ease and Rosi-Flex) and Rebound Arthritis Relief for dogs.
