Ultimate GlucosamineŽ is a powder consisting of 100 pure N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine is a major component of hyaluronan, a substance that functions as a lubricant in joints. It is also important in the growth and repair of joint cartilage. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine has been shown to repair joint damage in experimental models of osteoarthritis. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties in vitro. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine has been administered to children in amounts up to 6 grams per day for up to 2 years without any reported adverse effects.
Lack of adverse effects is probably explained by the fact that N-acetyl-D-glucosamine is a natural and important nutritional substance. Human breast milk contains as much as 1.5 grams per liter of milk and is the second most abundant sugar after lactose. When dissolved in water it forms a clear, colorless solution.
