What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine, also often referred to by its chemical name of Glucosamine Sulphate, is a primary amino sugar that is one of the main structural components in shellfish exoskeletons. Moreover, this is a natural substance found in the body. We naturally produce Glucosamine Sulphate from sugar (glucose) and an amino acid, Glutamine. The production and storage of Glucosamine is significantly limited and thus, it is suggested that the intake of Glucosamine is increased in times of intense work, repair or damage to a joint.
Benefits of Glucosamine
The benefits of Glucosamine relate to the health of bones and joints. The combination of glucose sugar and Glutamine prompts the body to produce glycosaminoglycans, a carbohydrate which acts as a base for the repair of damaged tissue. Glucosamine has been shown to aid the production of synovial fluid (the lubricating oil) in the joint, promoting increased fluidity in the range of movement in the joint. This benefits both the general population looking to enhance the health of their bones and joints, and athletes, particularly those who participate in high impact sports.

I’m a regular customer, but the size of the tablets make them difficult to swallow and I end up biting them into smaller pieces. Wouldn’t buy them again
Great product but although I have swallowed bigger tablets before I’ve had to abandon these. I was well aware of the size when ordering but didn’t realise they had no coating to help even drinking a litre of water. They easily break in half but scratched my throat badly. I’m so disappointed as they really seemed to help my arthritic knees and no fishy aftertaste.
It’s so huge (wide)/ sharpe pill it’s really hard to swallow. And I’m not the only one who had this issue. Please change the design of it.
Delivery was fast, that’s true.
I am sorry to hear that you are struggling with our tablets. The reason for the size of these tablets is due to the strength we want them to have. Unfortunately, we cannot make them any smaller while maintaining the same strength.

'Our Glucosamine tablets are provided in our statement large torpedo shape. These are fairly large and we advise against purchasing this product if you have trouble swallowing. ' - This can be found at the bottom of the description of the product.
You could split these tablets in half, if that would make them easier for you to take.
Always reliable service and a great products.
I am always happy with the delivery
