Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance utilized by the body to manufacture complex molecules that are necessary for the maintenance and repair of joint cartilage. Although glucosamine is produced within the body, levels of this vital substance are reduced with age. Supplements are the best source of additional glucosamine, since there are no food sources of this nutrient. Chondroitin is also important as a constituent of cartilage and a joint lubricant but is often excluded from supplements because of its relatively high cost. The chondroitin source used in JointCare is not of bovine origin and is therefore free of BSE. Why you should take JointCare Pharma Nord JointCare Pharma Nord may help to maintain healthy joints. Helps maintain healthy cartilage Glucosamine is necessary for the construction and maintenance of virtually all connective tissues and lubricating fluids in the body, including tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, skin, synovial fluid etc..

Regular use of glucosamine, particularly in the ageing population, is a safe and effective method for maintaining healthy, well-functioning joints.
