Glucosamine Omega-3 by Natrol is a nutritional supplement that complements two important elements with notable benefits for our Health. On the one hand it attends to our joint health by adding to the formula a source of Glucosamine and, on the other, it includes Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
- Glucosamine: This is a compound found in the body, from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is needed to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other tissues found in the body. Specifically, the main application of glucosamine will be to support the joints, and as we get older our bodies are less able to synthesize large amounts of glucosamine, with its oral administration becoming a real requirement. Amongst other functions, glucosamine acts in the formation of nails, skin, eyes, bones, tendons, cartilage and heart valves. By incorporating this substance into our diet, we will be preventing degradation of our cartilage.
- Omega-3: This is an essential fatty acid found in both animal and vegetable sources. In this case the following have been added: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docohexaenoic acid), are the Omega 3s from fish oil, while from vegetable sources comes borage oil. These elements act in synergy, applying their potential to providing joint support, reducing any inflammation and pain that may arise. Diseases such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, due to advancing age, or sports practice, are noticeably reduced.
Another important added factor is that this is a product the prime material for which, in this case fish oil, has been distilled at molecular level for the purposes of removing pesticides, toxins and heavy metals.
