Glucosamine is not made up of sugar.... it is derived from chitin, a substance found in the shells of shrimp, crab, [/QUOTE]
Yes, I'm aware of where it comes from. Apparently tho, according to a biologist I know who's done studies in nutritional supps and also by a naturopath, it is 'made up' predominently of sugar, hence the name 'GLOCOSamine'. I've been told this by them, but haven't looked into it personally, so happy to have more info if that's not correct.
