Glucosamine is an aminosaccharide that is found in the cartilage of the bone joint. It aids in proper functioning of the joint. The cartilage tends to wear of due to the natural ageing process or when it is overworked and also in overweight individuals. This occurs when the glucosamine production in the joints decrease. If this condition is neglected and steps are not taken to treat it, then it could lead to osteoarthritis. Hence a glucosamine supplement is to be taken to help in the smooth functioning of the joints. Glucosamine 900 supplements help in compensating for the deficiency as well as in stimulating the joint lubrication which is essential for the proper functioning of joints. These glucosamine compounds are also found in the skin and these occur naturally. These compounds help in binding water in the outer layer (epidermis) of the skin and thereby create a coating on the skin’s surface, which helps maintain the elasticity of the skin. This elasticity helps in the prevention of stretch marks on the skin.
