If you suffer from stiff or achy joints you probably know one of the best things to take is glucosamine. What options do you have if you have joint problems and are allergic to shellfish? What about if you’re a vegetarian with bad knees? In either case, Liquid Health’s Glucosamine-V is just the thing for you!
You shouldn’t have to suffer from joint problems just because of an allergy or dietary limitations. Liquid Health’s Glucosamine-V provides 1500 mg of GreenGrown® Glucosamine HCl to help alleviate joint pain and discomfort. GreenGrown® Glucosamine HCl is a vegetarian form of glucosamine that is derived from a fermentation process with corn and is, according to Ethical Naturals, “the only source of Non-GMO vegetable glucosamine, which is also USP grade.”
In addition to GreenGrown® glucosamine, this product contains 1000 mg of MSM. MSM has been proven to reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis. A 2006 study found that MSM “improved symptoms of pain and physical function” compared to those taking a placebo in the study. Another study published in 2011 found that “patients with OA (osteoarthritis) of the knee taking MSM for 12 weeks showed an improvement in pain and physical function.”
Most joint formulas contain Chondroitin because of its ability to help reduce joint problems in those taking it. However, there is no vegetarian form of Chondroitin, so Liquid Health’s Glucosamine-V includes 5 mgs of Hyaluronic Acid instead. According to Mayo Clinic’s website, Hyaluronic Acid “works by acting like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joints and helps the joints to work properly.” Using Hyaluronic Acid allows us to keep this product vegetarian while still providing as much pain reduction as possible for the user.
In addition to these important ingredients, Liquid Health Glucosamine-V contains antioxidants and enzymes derived from pineapple and grapefruit. These added ingredients help protect the joints from harmful free radicals that can damage cartilage. If you’re dealing with painful joints and can’t have shellfish or other animal products, consider Liquid Health’s Glucosamine-V as an answer to your problems.
