Each capsules contains 314mg of Glucosamine Sulfate sodium equivalent to Glucosamine sulfate 250mg.
Preservatives: None

Pharmacological Action:
Glucosamine possesses arthrotrophic metabolic activity by stimulating the anabolic metabolism of osteocartilaginous tissues, through stimulation of the biosynthesis of the mucopolysaccharides (which are the essential components of the cartilage ground-substances) and of the bone mesenchymal tissues and improvement of the bone calcium intake. Lubricant activity through improvement of synovial fluid viscosity by increasing synovial fluid production.

The pharmacokinetics of glucosamine sulphate was investigated in 6 healthy male volunteers (2 per administration route) using 14C uniformly labelled glucosamine sulphate and administering it in single dose by intravenous (iv), intramuscular (im), or oral route. After oral administration a proportion close to 90% of glucosamine sulphate is absorbed. Free glucosamine is not detectable in plasma. The radioactivity incorporated in the plasma proteins follow pharmacokinetics patterns which are similar to those after iv or im administration, but its concentration in plasma is about 5 times smaller than that after parenteral administration. The AUC after oral administration is 26% of that after iv or im administration. The plasma levels of radioactivity investigations in rats and dogs showing that also in man glucosamine sulphate is prodrug for glucosamine that is well absorbed after oral administration and that diffuses into several tissues including bones and articular cartilages.

Adjunct therapy in Osteoarthritis.
