Pharma Nord Bio-Glucosamine Mega is a combined supplement with the benefits of glucosamine and chondroitin intended for supporting cartilage and bones.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring sugar molecule which contributes to collagen formation for normal functioning of bones and cartilage. Glucosamine is produced within the body, but levels reduce with increasing age.
Chondroitin is often excluded from supplements because of its relatively high cost. Bio-Glucosamine Mega plus Chondroitin uses Chondroitin obtained from shark fin and therefore contains no bovine material.
When Bio-Glucosamine Mega plus Chondroitin is taken by mouth, Glucosamine and Chondroitin are absorbed into the body and taken in the blood to the joints. Glucosamine stimulates the formulation of normal joint cartilage and provides an anti-inflammartory effect and Chondroitin helps maintain the correct fluid balance in cartilage, as well as acting as joint lubricant.
