GlucoPlex contains an array of nutrients that participate in maintaining the integrity of healthy connective tissue.
Glucosamine serves as the basis for proteoglycan synthesis, and participates in the maintenance and production of articular cartilage, connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, ligaments and bones.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar and the core building block of mucopolysaccharides, which form a primary component of the ground substance of articular cartilage.
Glucosamine sulfate and niacinamide have been employed clinically to improve the ranges of motion and comfort of dysfunctional joints.
A recent double-blind trial found niacinamide safe and effective for chronic joint discomfort.
Niacinamide appears to be an ideal synergist with glucosamine because it enhances the production of glucoronic acid for hyaluronic acid synthesis and cartilage repair.
