Many standard glucosamine supplements are sourced from the shells of crustaceans, and therefore not suitable for vegetarians or vegans, or those with a shellfish allergy. Unfortunately, we produce less glucosamine as we age. Along with the fact that glucosamine can’t be obtained solely through diet, it’s easy to see why glucosamine supplements have become so popular. Why is Healthspan’s better?As with most of Healthspan’s products, Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl (hydrochloride) can’t be found from any other supplier. Glucosamine tablets are generally made using prawn/crustacean shells, but Healthspan pioneered shellfish-free, vegan glucosamine HCl, which they call Optiflex®, made from a sustainable and natural corn-based source. But it’s not just the quality – glucosamine HCI contains 40% more actual glucosamine per gram than standard glucosamine sulphate (2KCl). Each 1,325mg tablet provides the maximum allowable levels of base glucosamine – 23% more glucosamine than larger, traditional glucosamine sulphate 1,500mg tablets. Vitamin C has also been added to Healthspan’s formulation to support your joint and cartilage health.IngredientsOptiflex® Glucosamine (Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Povidone), Bulking Agent: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Coating (Polyvinyl Alcohol, Polyethylene Glycol, Safflower, Talc, Calcium Carbonate), Vitamin C Prep.
