Joint and bone problems affect more than 400 million people worldwide, and is expected to steadily increase over ten percent annually during the next ten years. Over 30% of baby boomers are actively managing joint issues.
Glucosamine, Chondroitin and/or the combination of both ingredients are the most widely purchased over-the-counter supplements for joint health care. Dozens of studies and human clinical trials have demonstrated its benefits. Consumers know and understand glucosamine as being an important constituent of connective tissues. Glucosamine is a molecule naturally produced in the human body by cellular metabolism, and a key building block of joint cartilage and joint fluid. An active lifestyle, contact sports, and normal aging can wear down joint cartilage.

Research also shows that consumers care about where their supplements come from – where ingredients are sourced and manufactured. They want products they can trust to work both effectively and safely. NutraSense is proud to carry the only combination of American sourced and manufactured vegetarian glucosamine and chondroitin from highly respected domestic manufacturers.

NutraSense Glucosamine-ES® (for Extra Strength) is unique in that it is NOT produced from shellfish or shell-waste, which is the source of most glucosamine on the market today. Roughly 70 to 80 percent of the global glucosamine supply is sourced from Chinese shellfish. NutraSense formulates with Cargill’s Regenasure® brand which is produced using a patented corn fermentation process. It’s the only commercially available non-animal, non-shellfish, vegetarian, and Kosher/Halal certified glucosamine. What’s just as notable, is that it meets all US Pharmacopoeia and National Formulary specifications, is GRAS status (generally recognized as safe by the FDA), and is produced in a HACCP facility under controlled conditions adhering to current Good Manufacturing Practice standards. Regenasure® is produced without the contaminants and environmental impact issues related to marine creatures and shellfish farming operations, eliminating many consumer safety concerns.

Regenasure® glucosamine HCl is also the same vegetarian glucosamine chosen by the National Institute of Health for their G.A.I.T. Study which researched treatments for knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Findings showed that treatment with glucosamine and chondroitin combined were most effective in treating moderate to severe knee pain when compared to anti-inflammatory drugs.
