"Bones, muscles and joints, along with cartilage, ligaments and tendons, form the basis of the musculoskeletal system. Joints are the location at which two or more bones make contact, they make the skeleton more flexible and allow movement and provide mechanical support. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino-sugar and is a major building block of complex proteins called glycosaminoglycans, which forms part of the structure of connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Cartilage is important for supple joints and undergoes a constant process of breakdown and renewal, however, to be properly renewed the building blocks of cartilage must be present and available. This formulation is particularly suited for those who cannot swallow tablets, such as the elderly, as the glucosamine powder from the two-piece capsule can be dispersed in food or drink."
