What is Glucosamine Chondroitin?
Glucosamine Chondroitin is our supplement of glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, both of which are found organically in the cartilage cells of the body. The body produces glucosamine as an amino sugar in cartilage, and chondroitin sulphate as a complex carbohydrate in cartilage, which helps retain water.
Glucosamine is naturally present in the shells of shellfish, animal bones and bone marrow and is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, which are a major component of joint cartilage.
Who is it for?
Glucosamine is suitable for men and women who are regularly active and are looking to supplement their efforts to aid joint health.
What are the benefits?
- Supplement the body’s natural cartilage stores
- Easy to take capsule form
- Glucosamine Chondroitin from a sustainable source

How is it made?
Reflex Nutrition make Glucosamine Chondroitin from sustainable marine shellfish, mainly the shells of shrimp. Marine shells are naturally high in glucosamine. By using shellfish, we ensure our Glucosamine Chondroitin is halal safe.
The Glucosamine Chondroitin is then encapsulated in our state of the art factory in Sussex UK. Our capsules are not vegetarian, due to the use of bovine gelatin. We use capsules as, simply put, tablets are cheap and quick to make when compared to capsules, however because they contain binders, they are more difficult for the body to digest. Capsules require no binders and the ingredients are carefully packed, as micro dosed powders, in the small pharmaceutical grade capsule shells.
The science behind it
Glucosamine Chondroitin is hugely popular with athletes and people looking to support their joint health around the world. Glucosamine is a building block of glycosaminoglycans, which are proteins that help to build joint cartilage. Chondroitin also aids the production of glycosaminoglycans, and it helps to retain fluid in the cartilage, protecting and cushioning the bones.
