Ultimate Glucosamine® is a powder consisting of 100% acetylglucosamine. Acetylglucosamine is a natural-source substance found in healthy cartilage that aids in joint lubrication. Chiromedics Health Centre supplies only the highest grade of glucosamine. Ultimate Glucosamine® is the purest form of glucosamine on the market. It is the purest because its formulation contains no additives such as salts, preservatives, coloring agents, glutens, lactose or yeast. It dissolves readily in both hot and cold liquids. When dissolved in water it forms a clear, colorless solution that has a pleasant, sweet taste. Because of these properties, Ultimate Glucosamine® is easy to add to your favorite hot or cold beverage or morning cereal.
In a survey of glucosamine products marketed in Canada, researchers found that only one contained the labeled amount of glucosamine. This is because the most frequently available products contain glucosamine sulfate and accompanying salts. Most marketed products were not corrected for these salts, and thus had less than the expected amount of pure glucosamine. Ultimate Glucosamine® has no accompanying salts and thus contains 100% pure N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.
