The two popular active ingredients glucosamine & chondroitin combined in a food supplement.
What is glucosamine and what effect does it have?
Glucosamine is a natural component of joint cartilage and synovial fluid and has a significant influence on the healthy function of the joints. It helps to build up and supply connective tissue, tendons, cartilage, joint capsules and synovial fluid. Healthy cartilage ensures that the joint surfaces can rub against each other without pain during movement and helps to absorb hard impacts as a buffer. The glucosamine in our capsules is obtained from the raw material chitin, the shell of crustaceans, and is considered to be of particularly high quality and has a high bioavailability.
Glucosamine sulphate: buy the best glucosamine on the market
When people talk about glucosamine, they may mean two commercially available raw materials: "glucosamine HCL" or "glucosamine sulphate". That's why it's worth taking a particularly close look when buying online. Because almost all studies on the effectiveness of glucosamine were conducted with glucosamine sulphate. In contrast, there is hardly any evidence for the effectiveness of the significantly cheaper and inferior glucosamine HCL.
Whether you buy your glucosamine from us or from one of the many other suppliers, we do not want to deprive you of this important information and would like to point out that the product of your choice should only contain glucosamine sulphate. We at Surpresa Natural are proud to support a large number of regular customers with the best quality and continue to rely on high-quality glucosamine sulphate for our nutritional supplements.
What is chondroitin and what effect does it have?
Chondroitin is also an endogenous component of joint cartilage and gives it elasticity and shock-absorbing properties, as well as increasing nutrient permeability. The combination of the nutrients glucosamine and chondroitin has proven to be particularly effective.
Chondroitin: Dosage is crucial
Here too, an important tip for all those who would like to buy cheap chondroitin capsules: No matter where you end up buying, pay attention to the chondroitin content of the capsules. In practice, a daily dosage of 1200 mg has proven to be ideal. This is exactly the dosage you get with the recommended amount of three Surpresa Natural capsules daily. However, many products that you can buy online contain significantly less chondroitin. The reason for this is simple: chondroitin is very expensive as a raw material. That is why many suppliers rely on cheap chondroitin from pigs. The chondroitin in our Surpresa Natural capsules, on the other hand, comes from cattle and is therefore of a higher quality.
