High Strength Glucosamine Sulphate 500mg + Chondroitin 400mg plus Vitamin C 60mg is in each tablet.
Glucosamine Sulphate over the last 18 years has become one of the most important weapons in the battle to reduce pain from arthritis, back and joint pain. So much so that vast amounts of Clinical Data has become available to the medical profession and the general public. Doctors, Pharmacists, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Sports Trainers worldwide are now prescribing Glucosamine for the relief of painful joints, arthritis, back pain and sports injuries.
Glucosamine Sulphate consists of certain micronutrients that are amino acid sugars. These Amino Acid Sugars are key constituents of larger compounds called Glycoprotein’s which allow tissue to bind together. Amino Acid Sugars are necessary for the maintenance and construction of virtually all connective tissue and lubricating fluids in the body. This includes joint fluid, tendon, ligaments, cartilage, bone matrix, skin mucous membranes and intestinal linings.
Two key Amino Acids are L-Lysine and L-Proline, which are required in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. These are connective tissue (or glue) which holds the cells together and gives the resilience and strength to out tissues. When collagen is lacking, the tissues literally dissolve.
Vitamin C is constantly called upon to defend our bodies against free radical attack. If our bodies are lacking in vitamin C then the tissue repair is obstructed.
Many clinical trials using Glucosamine has been conducted worldwide and almost all researchers are in agreement that Glucosamine taken in Conjunction with Vitamin C really does work in improving joint health and helping to reduce pain.
One very important clinical trial was conducted over a three year period by the Belgian Hospital Authorities and reported at length in the prestigious medical magazine ‘The Lancet’. The conclusion of this clinical study was that the patients suffering from arthritis had a substantial improvement in joint mobility, improvement in the production of cartilage and improvement in the reduction of pain.
Q1. How much should be taken daily for best results?
Answer. You need 1500mg* of the active ingredient, Glucosamine. (Take with Vitamin C as this will aid absorption).
Q2. How long will it take before good results are achieved?
Answer. Depending on the problem ie; joint injury, arthritis, back pain, sports injury etc and of course, the duration of the problem, it could be weeks, months or even years. A good guide is short term illness and results will be shown in weeks, long term, then the beneficial results will not start to appear until six to eight weeks after that, providing you keep on taking 1500mg* of Glucosamine and 200mg of Vitamin C, then the improvement should be ongoing.
Q3. Can Glucosamine be used whilst pain relieving drugs are being taken?
Answer. It does not appear to be a problem for users of anti-inflammatory drugs to take Glucosamine and Vitamin C along with them.
Glucosamine Sulphate is recognised by the body and converts in the body to Chondroitin.
Ultimate Nutrition uses the highest grade of Glucosamine Sulphate in the manufacturing process.
Glucosamine is one product made up of two elements: Glucosamine (the active part) and Sulphate. In the manufacture process, as the Glucosamine is extracted so is some Sulphate. The more manufacturing processes the material goes through the purer it becomes. The purer it becomes the costlier the material becomes for a manufacturer, such as Ultimate Nutrition to buy.
The highest grade is 75% ratio of Glucosamine to 25% Sulphate.
The poorest grade is 15% ratio of Glucosamine to 85% Sulphate.
Based on using the highest grade of material, in a 1000mg capsule, using the 75% material, you would get 750mg of Glucosamine to 250mg of Sulphate.
Based on using the lowest grade of material, in a 1000mg capsule, using the 15% material, you would get 150mg of Glucosamine to 850mg of Sulphate
It is the old adage; you get what you pay for. Unfortunately, due to costs, not all manufacturers are prepared to use the highest quality materials as is Ultimate Nutrition.
Glucosamine is a naturally occuring compound which plays a role in the maintenance of the cartiilage and connective tissues in the joints. Ultimate Nutrition Glucosamine Sulphate tablets ensure a regular supply of Glucosamine is provided in an easily absorbed form.

Chondroitin sulphate is a substance produced naturally in the body to promote the formation of healthy connective tissues (including cartilage, tendons and ligaments) and is an important component of joint fluid. As you get older, however, joint cells secrete less and less chondroitin and this has been linked with reduced cartilage quality and the start of degenerative osteoarthritic changes in ageing joints
Chondroitin is a substance that occurs naturally in the connective tissues of people and animals. As a supplement in higher doses than is found naturally, chondroitin is a popular treatment for Osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin sulphate chains bind to hyaluronic acid to form a ‘springy’ molecule that increases the strength and elasticity of cartilage, making it more resilient. Chondroitin sulphate also has beneficial effects on the metabolism of joint cells. It acts as a signal to inhibit the enzymes responsible for breaking down cartilage and increases type II collagen (*) synthesis.
Most people start to feel results in 4-6 weeks with using this supplement. Cumulative benefits are achieved through long-term daily use. The cause of wear on the joint area can be linked to insufficient lubrication and cell membrane fluidity.
Chondroitin occurs naturally in animal tissue, especially connective tissues. Gristle on animal bones is high in chondroitin. However, these sources are much lower than the doses provided in Chondroitin supplements.
