We are invested in every detail to understand the consumer’s joint health needs. No matter where you are located, we know what it takes to take a difficult product to market.
We perfected the science of glucosamine to provide the world with an effective and highly sustainable, vegan form of the leading selling joint supporting ingredient. GlucosaGreen® is bioequivalent to other forms of glucosamine, but with significant differences.
"We are driven by sustainability. In addition to ongoing water reduction initiatives we are dramatically reducing our carbon footprint with every ton of shellfish-based glucosamine we convert to GlucosaGreen®"
Peter Mazzilli, Director Ingredient Solutions Division
Hundreds of studies support the benefits of Glucosamine to relieve joint pain due to osteoarthritis. Clinical studies show it may reduce cartilage degradation and aid in the rebuilding of cartilage. It provides much-needed relief from pain, enabling millions of people and animals to live more active, healthy lives – See More Info.
The most recent science supporting GlucosaGreen® shows benefits beyond joint health. A study in the journal Nutrients,1 glucosamine supplementation supported healthy elimination and gastrointestinal health, by reducing stomach bloating and stool function. It improved branched chain amino-acid excretion with no negative effect on short-chain fatty acid levels. The 14-day supplementation also reduced phylogenetic diversity and proportions of Pseudomonadaceae, Peptococcaceae, and Bacillaceae.
The researchers concluded that these results may open avenues for further study into potential benefits for muscle health, muscle breakdown and age-related muscle loss.
