This product has been improved Please note, we have recently improved this formulation by adding 15mg vitamin C. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage. What is Glucosamine & Omega 3? Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body’s connective tissue and is a structural component of joint cartilage – the flexible tissue that protects the bones from friction at the joints. As we age, our bodies produce less glucosamine, leaving our joints more vulnerable to damage. Omega 3 fish oil contains the fatty acids DHA and EPA, which have been found to be beneficial to our overall heart health, as well as keeping our eyesight and brains in good working order1. One of the main reasons scientists have long rated the Mediterranean diet for health is its fish content. In fact, the UK’s Food Standards Agency recommends we eat at least two portions of fish every week, including one of oily fish, such as sardines, mackerel and salmon. Our Glucosamine & Omega 3 supplement combines these two popular nutrients in one small, easy-to-swallow capsule, often taken by those who want to support an active lifestyle. Why is ours better? We make our capsules using our patented glucosamine HCl, which is free from shellfish and associated allergens. And because sea pollution has led to increasing concerns about toxins, we use a patented technology to purify our fish oil, removing pollutants to levels that are lower than those found in fresh fish. What’s more, we only use sustainably sourced fish oil that has been granted ‘Friend of the Sea’ certification and is obtained using methods that don’t over-exploit fish stocks or threaten the marine food chain. Finally, we've added vitamin C to provide further support for your joint health.2 1The beneficial effect for brain and eyes is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA. The beneficial effect for heart is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA. 2Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage. Complementary products Turmeric is one of five supplements which our experts believe provide the foundation of good health. Take a look at our Opti-Turmeric, a highly absorbable and fast-acting liquid curcumin (the main compound in turmeric) with added vitamin C to support collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage and bones.
