Glucosamine supports healthy bone growth and is involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the fluid that surrounds joints. It is often sourced from shellfish, contributing to the overfishing crisis. At Vegetology, we source glucosamine from a fungus called Aspergillus Niger. It gives our supplements the same bone-strengthening properties without the environmental impact associated with fishing.
The average human body has in excess of 200 joints. The joints that we are most familiar with are those that allow movement at the point where two bones meet. Not all joints are like this, for example, the skull has many fixed joints. But the reason we are most familiar with these moving joints is perhaps because they can start to cause us the most problems as we age.
Although you probably don’t give your joints much of a thought in your teens, by the time you get to your mid-to late twenties, especially if you have an active lifestyle, we bet you probably start to notice them more?
I’m delighted to introduce Bone Care, the latest product in our Vegetology family of products. Bone Care is the result of over 5 years of research and development work and I was thrilled to see the first bottles coming off the production line!
