What is glucosamine hydrochloride?
Glucosamine hydrochloride is a natural compound found in the body that is used to help make and form cartilage. Glucosamine has also been shown to help lubricate, cushion, and protect healthy joints.
How much glucosamine is added to MonaVie Active?
MonaVie Active juice contains 1,500 mg of glucosamine in 4 oz. In two Active gel packs (1 oz serving size each) there are 1,500 mg of glucosamine. Many studies have been done on the effects of glucosamine and joint health. A set dosage of glucosamine has not been determined yet, but most clinical trials have used approximately 1,200 mg" 1,500 mg (1.5 g) of glucosamine per day. Because of this, this amount is generally accepted as a safe, effective dose.
Is one form of glucosamine more effective than another?
There are three types of glucosamine: glucosamine hydrochloride (HCl), N-acetyl glucosamine, and glucosamine sulfate. Both glucosamine HCl and glucosamine sulfate are rapidly converted into "free" glucosamine in the stomach. So, from a physiological standpoint, they are equally effective. However, glucosamine HCl is 83 percent glucosamine, while glucosamine sulfate is only 65 percent glucosamine. We formulated MonaVie Active juice with glucosamine HCl because this form of glucosamine contains the highest level of free glucosamine.
Is the added glucosamine in MonaVie Active from a vegetarian source?
The glucosamine hydrochloride in MonaVie Active juice and MonaVie Active gel is produced from a vegetarian source and is the only non-animal, nonshellfish form of glucosamine available. It can be consumed by people with shellfish allergies.
