All glucosamine products available to consumers contain a mixture of D-Glucosamine and L-Glucosamine and are manufactured from specially processed chitin obtained from shrimp, lobster and crab shells. However, during processing both D-Glucosamine and L-Glucosamine are formed, yet the body only uses D-Glucosamine for the manufacture of the building blocks of cartilage as well as for the formation of ligaments.
Using a patented method for processing chitin, the scientists at Omega Alpha have produced a Glucosamine Sulphate product that contains D-Glucosamine exclusively. Glucosamine is commercially available in 3 forms: Glucosamine Sulphate, Glucosamine Hydrochloride and N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG). Studies have shown that the Glucosamine sulphate molecule also provides a SULPHUR molecule which is essential for the manufacture of cartilage and ligaments. For best results choose the Glucosamine product that contains only D-Glucosamine.
