Glucosamine Sulfate & MSM (Vegetarian)

120 Tablets

There is no current recommended daily dosage for glucosamine, however most people do best when taking 500 milligrams to 1500 milligrams daily, whether alone or in combination with other supplements (like Chondroitin, Omega-3s or MSM supplements). Studies show the 500 to 1,500 dosage range helps:

· lower inflammation and help reverse autoimmune reactions

· preserve joint health

· reduce joint pain and tenderness

· protect and repair gut lining

· fight irritation to the stomach, bladder and intestines

· treat inflammatory bowel disease and leaky gut syndrome

· rebuild tissue and stronger bones following fractures or injuries

Glucosamine Sulfate & MSM (Vegetarian Formula)

120 Tablets

LifeSource Vitamins


For those who are allergic to Shellfish or who keep Kosher!


LifeSource Vitamins unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.

Joint pain and decreased mobility are common complaints among people with arthritis. Glucosamine has always been a popular and effective supplement for their relief. Unfortunately, the only way to get glucosamine was from a shellfish extract. This excluded many from its benefits including vegetarians, people with shellfish allergies or those with a kosher diet. We at LifeSource Vitamins are pleased to offer a technological breakthrough in joint support supplementation with this high quality vegetarian form of glucosamine.*

Glucosamine is the major building block for Proteoglycans and Glycosaminoglycans, the connective chains and latticework that bind to collagen to make up cartilage. Healthy cartilage is important for joint flexibility and glucosamine can help protect cartilage. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production of proteoglycans. Our unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.*

Glucosamine works to heal cartilage, tendons and other connective tissues instead of merely cover up pain. The results take a little bit longer than NSAIDs or COX-2 drugs, but once you have achieved relief it works to protect your joints from further damage.*

This formula is recommended for its high quality, potency, purity and bio-availability. The capsule form is dissolved easier than most hard to digest tablet forms of vegetarian glucosamine.


Who Should Consider:

Anyone who is experiencing Osteoarthritis joint-associated pain, including:


  • Knee joint pain*
  • Elbow joint pain*
  • Finger, joint pain*
  • Spinal and neck related Osteoarthritic pain*
  • Hip related Osteoarthritic pain*
  • Other related joint/cartilage pain stemming from Osteoarthritis*


What does Glucosamine do?

Glucosamine supplements are widely used for osteoarthritis, particularly knee osteoarthritis. In osteoarthritis, cartilage -- the rubbery material that cushions joints -- becomes stiff and loses its elasticity. This makes the joint prone to damage and may lead to pain, swelling, loss of movement, and further deterioration.*

Since the body's natural glucosamine is used to make and repair joint cartilage, taking glucosamine as a nutritional supplement is thought to help repair damaged cartilage by augmenting the body's supply of glucosamine.*

Numerous double blind studies have shown that Glucosamine produces significantly positive results in reducing the symptoms of Osteoarthritis. The main function of glucosamine is to stimulate the manufacture of substances, including cartilage, necessary for joint repair. It appears that some people lack the ability to manufacture glucosamine and this has been suggested as one of the major factors leading to the development of osteoarthritis. European researchers were the first to study the link between glucosamine levels and osteoarthritis. Of the three ingredients in Glucosamine + Chondroitin + MSM, Glucosamine has the strongest amount of research indicating its efficacy. If you are on a tight budget, Glucosamine alone is a less expensive option.*

There is promising evidence that glucosamine may reduce pain symptoms of knee osteoarthritis and possibly slow the progression of osteoarthritis. For example, a study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine examined people with osteoarthritis over three years. Researchers assessed pain and structural improvements seen on x-ray. They gave 202 people with mild to moderate osteoarthritis 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate a day or a placebo.*

At the end of the study, researchers found that glucosamine slowed the progression of knee osteoarthritis compared to the placebo. People in the glucosamine group had a significant reduction in pain and stiffness. On x-ray, there was no average change or narrowing of joint spaces in the knees (a sign of deterioration) of the glucosamine group. In contrast, joint spaces of participants taking the placebo narrowed over the three years.*

How Does MSM Work?

Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is a safe and natural assimilate derived from the Southern Louisiana Pine. MSM is organic sulfur--the kind your body can absorb and use. Sulfur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body. And, it is found in every cell of every animal and plant. Sulfur is found in food; it is most abundant in eggs and red peppers, but can also be found in significant quantities in grains, legumes, animal proteins, onions, garlic, asparagus, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and broccoli.*

At the Oregon Health and Sciences University, Dr. Stanley Jacob discovered that heating dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), caused it to crystallize, and isolating 99.9% of the beneficial compound MSM. MSM is a pure, natural, stable, white, odorless crystalline powder without the unpleasant taste or odor of DMSO. It does not produce intestinal gas or body odor that may occur with other forms of sulfur. MSM is not a drug or medicine, and is unrelated to sulfa drugs, to which some people have an allergy.*

MSM may help relieve joint pain and swelling - without the stomach damage, rebound pain, and (yes, it's true) joint damage associated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's), such as ibuprofen. Every batch produced by LifeSource Laboratories has been tested. The first food-grade MSM made for human consumption. The finest MSM available.*

The key issue with MSM is what kind of effect it has on the body and why you would take it. Unlike Glucosamine, you already get some MSM from your diet. Strictly speaking, MSM is the biologically available (organic) form of sulfur. Sulfur is one of the major components of food and one of the most prevalent materials in the body. Most likely due to its chemical similarity to sulfur, MSM has shown to be effective at relieving inflammation and some would argue that MSM is far better than some of the other COX2 drugs or NSAIDS out there.*

Why Glucosamine and MSM together?

To aid in the relief of pain associated with Osteoarthritis (also known as Degenerative Joint Disease) and to potentially slow the onset of the degenerative effect of Osteoarthritis. This is a combination that helps in the rebuilding of joint cartilage, maintains the health of the cartilage and at the same time reduces the painful inflammation associated with Osteoarthritis.*


Study Glucosamine / MSM:

In a study noted by New York University Langone Medical Center, glucosamine/ MSM significantly reduced osteoarthritis pain in study subjects who consumed a specific dose daily for 12 weeks compared to those who took no supplement. While glucosamine and MSM alone, at the same dose as the combined supplement, decreased the pain experienced by the study subjects, the effect was less than when they took both supplements together. Glucosamine MSM may also relieve the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, one or the other may offer benefits against temporomandibular joint arthritis, interstitial cystitis, inflammatory bowel disease, rosacea and sports-related injuries.*

LifeSource Vitamins Glucosamine & MSM Vegetarian Formula is unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish. Arthritis relief, pain and joint help.*
