Glucosamine makes up the building blocks in the body. It repairs cartilage, eases the pain of fibromyalgia (connective tissue) and arthritis (bone), and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory.
The primary source of glucosamine is joint supplements. This is because there are not many foods that contain it.
– any food with the cartilage or bones of animals i.e. chicken feet, shark cartilage, home-made chicken stock
– bone marrow of animals i.e. necks of poultry
– crustaceans such as shrimp, lobster, krill and crab.
